    Crop box printing in pdfs

    Thanks, but I think we're missing the point. There is no box or border visible on the viewports in the sheet layer or on-screen when viewing the pdf. It only shows up on the printed page. My none has no fill, but it is used for other things so has a line, but per above, I have never had this happen before, and it doesn't happen all the time.

    Crop box printing in pdfs

    Thanks, I do update all the viewports manually before I make the PDF.

    Crop box printing in pdfs

    When printing pdfs, my crop boxes are printing. But not all of them. The wireframe ones seem to print the box, while openGL or hidden line do not. They are all on None class and are invisible on the sheet layer and on the on-screen pdf. This happens on MACs to a Brother printer, on Windows to an HP printer and to a commercial printer. Any ideas? Thanks!

    3d rotation of slab or floor

    Thanks, Jim. You're right on the money. Ive tried to tilt sidewalks, short ramps, etc, and that would be useful.

    3d rotation of slab or floor

    This may be the issue. I was trying to do it with floors, which apparently are tied to the layer plane so not rotatable in x/y.

    3d rotation of slab or floor

    IT seems this should be easy, or I'm missing something! How can I rotate a floor in 3d (or in section view)? I want a tilted back to a bench seat. the 3d rotate says only in Z axis which rotates in plan. I've tried all the options in the rotate/3d tool. Thanks
  8. For a section viewport: Label should be modifiable BEFORE creation: it Doesn't let you determine the label type. It appears to, but doesn't work. and the line length mode is not changeable till after it's made. Not good. Thanks!
  9. While the roof framer is still erratic, putting on overhangs where none are specified, dropping members and leaving out headers at skylights, it would really help if the framing could be specified to align with the BOTTOM of the roofing object, since the object is often sized for the rafters AND the top sheathing. Actually it might help to be able to spec the distance from the top or bottom of the roofing object so we could use a depth including sheathing AND drywall.

    Windows 7: .vwx not recognized, won't attach to VW files

    That works fine. And the VW icon even shows up alongside the VW files in the list of files. But not in the basic Windows Explorer box.

    Windows 7: .vwx not recognized, won't attach to VW files

    I tried that, and again just now. For the vwx files I do not get an Open With option when right clicking, while I do with all other files types. If I go through Properties and browse for the program file, find it in Programs Files(x86), it still does not react, or attach.
  12. On several Win 7 computers, my VW files do not show the program icon in Windows Explorer, .vwx does not come up on program lists, is considered unrecognized in the Properties and will not attach to a file (via the Open With dialogue) when hunted down in the Program files(x86) folder. The files do not open when double clicked. Any ideas?
  13. It would help to have the shower drain offset be adjustable in both directions, since with the newer linear drains it is often placed at the rear or front of a square shower. Currently it defaults to a traditional side to side arrangement. Also, have a linear drain option if feasible.
  14. Small but helpful: these window walls should have the same settings capabilities as the standard tool, ie, for window numbers, classes (for ID), sills, wall lines, trim etc.
  15. An amendment to the above: to allow a 1 or 2 drawer option similar to the number of doors. Currently the drawers default to match the number of doors, but in many instances a single drawer is preferred over double doors.
