  1. I think the basic question still hasn't been addressed. Given the adjustability of so many other objects (doors and windows) via the OIP or even the unstyled options menu for the tool, why can't we simply specify the drawer heights when choosing a 3 or 4 drawer cabinet? Same size drawers are typical in standard cabinetry offerings, and in schematics we don't want to spend time doing custom layouts. Even in standard cd's for a non-high-end project. Seem an odd lapse.
  2. Thanks. I'm Windows, if that matters, but can't see how to do what you described. It would be nice to just put the icon into a =n editing program and change the colors or whatever. Actually, it would be nice if VW would just vary the color from year to year!
  3. I'll echo NikF's comment. This should have been done years ago, or at least give us a folder with alternative icons or tell us how to change it. This is irksome! That's the word, irksome! NikF, how did you add the 22? or others, how did you change the colors? Thanks and Merry, I mean, Happy Holidays to all!
  4. I opened a V11 .mcd in 2020 today just fine.
  5. 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.
  6. Thanks, I do update all the viewports manually before I make the PDF.
  7. 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!
  8. Any update on this idea? could be really useful for buttresses, modern architecture...
  9. Thanks, Jim. You're right on the money. Ive tried to tilt sidewalks, short ramps, etc, and that would be useful.
  10. 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.
  11. 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
  12. 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!
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
