  1. Maybe try a separate file for all your dimensions and reference the drawing info from your main drawing with viewports. Then set main drawing to have precision 0.000001 and the one with your dimensions to have precision 0.1 - wont matter since you are only using this for displaying your dims.

  3. We also see correcting problems with the rotated plans as top priority. We're particularly interested in getting the correct coordinates for a given point when the view is rotated.
  4. We have 80 A-Series licences for Vectorworks Architect 12.5.3 on OS X. Does anybody know if I can add all 80 serial numbers onto all 80 computers in the office, and have each computer take the first unused license when Vectorworks starts up. I know this type of strategy used to work back in version 8, when it was common to add all the codes into a single machine and copy the preferences onto the rest of the network. Does anyone still do this now or will it cause me Network license conflicts? I'm hoping this will work, because managing the "one serial number per machine" system for this number of machines is becoming a right pain.
  5. ...Although even when you are registered it seems not possible to search for the phrase "pdf"...
  6. gerryp, We saw this on one machine here. The fix for us was to delete the IP resources.rsrc file from ~/Library/Application Support/ Vectorworks/12/Plugins/ ...as discussed in thread : http://techboard.nemetschek.net/ubbthreads/showflat.php?Number=76914 Hope that helps
  7. Jonathan, Is there a particular reason you suggest finishing the old projects in version 11? We are also about to go from 11.5 to 12.5 but some existing projects are very large and will continue for a year or two. Do you know of any problems if we do a batch convert on the whole project? Any advice appreciated! John
  8. Hi Katie, We use patterns in a lot of our drawings - mostly we use simple "checkerboard" patterns for shadows and to denote floor areas. In an example I just printed there is a simple green and white checkerboard pattern. When the option is off the printed output is very similar to VW11 - there is a light green shaded area. When the option is turned on the pattern prints very coarse. There is a white backgound with solid green circles.
  9. I have to agree with Jason on this one. We also have 50+ users and we also cannot use the suggested workarounds above. We just need to wait till the next update before experiencing the joy of decent pdfs straight from VW. No critisism of the team - it was good they could get universal binaries out so promptly (Microsoft now saying end 2007 for Office I think...) However, like Jason, I hope that the developers can see that permission issues are problematic for a large userbase - where we can't just make everyone an Administrator. I hope that there is a pool of beta testers who test the software with non-Admin accounts.
  10. This box seems to be checked by default in VW12.5 both for new files and for files converted from VW11.5. (It is in the Vectorworks options of the Print dialog). For prints to look the same as in previous versions the box must be unchecked. Is there any way to change the default? Unchecking the box is ok, but as far as I can tell it must be done for every sheet layer in every file.
  11. This issue is still right at the top of our wishlist as well. Christiaan, I will be at the London event tonight -see you there.
  12. I'm downloading the updater at the moment from http://www.nemetschek.net/12.5/vwinfo.php There is also a 'Whats new in 12.5' document. The only thing I noticed straight away was that it does not mention rotating the 2D view, which seems to have been a fundamental problem for too long now. Oh well, reserve judgement till download is installed!
  13. This issue is now solved. (I work in same office as Tom) The problem arose from a custom hatch in the drawing which which was set with the parameters too small. Modifying the hatch in Vectorworks stopped the freezing behaviour when the exported drawing was opened in AutoCAD. Thanks Hamma for your help
  14. Let our name be added to this wish list. This is a really important issue now that VW is being take seriously for larger schemes.
