  1. Color palettes shifting RGB values on their own has been an issue in VW for some time now. Here is a slightly older thread with a similar issue to yours also in Vw2022.
  2. @blanger - just FYI, @PVA - Admin no longer works at Vw, not for a couple of years now. Your query may get better response from one of the other current Vw employees / Forum Admin like @JuanP.
  3. I believe that VE reference number is an internal Enhancement tracking number for Vectorworks staff, tying their internal tracking system back to the Wishlist request item on the user forum. All we end users see on the forum is just that number which refers to this thread. If you upvoted this thread at the upper left, then you have already upvoted it.
  4. @Elite Exhibits Just a forum tip that if you want to tag @Luis M Ruiz to see your request, start typing @ and continue typing their user name, it will autocomplete if you have their correct user name.
  5. You can also set the Leader Type to None on the Callout OIP, then you can have a database note without any leader.
  6. Have you tried using a Glow Texture instead of Line Lights? Back in 2017, former Vw employee @PVA - Admin JimW had this to say about Line Lights in the thread linked above:
  7. Wes is correct, this is the same way that the INT function works in Excel (and Google Sheets, etc): It rounds a real number down to the nearest integer. If that's not what you want, you might want to use ROUNDUP as Wes suggested.
  8. You should be able to change the object’s mapping projection type on the Render tab of the OIP: Vw2022 Help : Managing Object Textures from the Object Info Palette
  9. Maybe the solution offered by @Pat Stanford in this older thread might help:
  10. There are a bunch of training videos over at the Vw University, search for ‘Windoor’. https://university.vectorworks.net/course/index.php?mycourses=0&tagfilter[category]=0&tagfilter[type]=0&tagfilter[difficulty]=0&mycourses=&search=Windoor+&langfilter[]=0 Specifically this video around the 1m28s mark discusses the settings for existing walls around Windoor objects: https://university.vectorworks.net/mod/overview/view.php?id=2598 HTH.
  11. I would try using a Glow Texture instead of Line Lights. See these posts for video tips on making Glow Textures: Also see this post from previous Vw employee @PVA - Admin regarding the deprecated state of Line Lights in 2017:
  12. Does it still happen if you have no other apps running except for Vw2022? The way that Stickies app is behaving w/Vw looks suspicious. Just a thought.
  13. Perhaps this page from the Vw2022 Help file might also help? Specifying Hardscape Joint Patterns
  14. I never have used any of these, but I remember there was another one called SimTread. Not sure it’s still around, the link in the post below is 404.
  15. Maybe this thread can help with what you’re trying to do:
  16. Maybe it was this thread you were thinking of?
  17. The previous Vw employee known as @PVA - Jim posted that he submitted this as an internal wishlist item back in September 2015. Maybe someday it will be implemented…
  18. Gotcha - thank you for the clarification.
  19. I opened that PDF file with PDF Studio 2021, and there aren't any layers in the PDF. I believe that vector-based PDFs typically do have both a raster version and the vector linework version. (As a test to confirm, I made a PDF with Vw 2022 using File > Export PDF, drag & dropped the PDF back into Vw, ungrouped it and there are both a raster and vector version).
  20. If by chance you’re running Vw 2022 (and not 2018 as per your signature), in 2022 OpenGL was renamed to Shaded.
  21. @MHBrown I believe that all licensed Vw Users have a Vw Customer Portal page, whether or not you have a Service Select subscription. Click the link towards the bottom of this Twinmotion | Vectorworks promotion page, under the section labeled ‘Get your Free License Today’. There are instructions on how to get your TM license there. HTH. https://www.unrealengine.com/en-US/twinmotion/vectorworks
  22. Here you go -- it's in a folder inside a ZIP archive. Thorpe Road COU-dwg.zip
  23. One of the features that I used most often in Bluebeam Revu for Mac is the ability to Flatten the document, which is what I do right before I send out the PDF. That way the comments & annotations all appear exactly as I want them and you do not have the problem that you described. There is also an Unflatten command. It looks like PDF Studio also has this Flatten / Unflatten functionality, perhaps other PDF applications have this functionality as well.
  24. I have both PDF Expert and PDFPen Pro, and neither of them allows you to measure and/or dimension objects / drawings.
  25. Yes, I am, but with one big caveat. The last version release available, Bluebeam Revu for Mac version 2.1, does NOT run on MacOS 11 Big Sur or newer — it crashes immediately on trying to open the app. But the previous older version 1.9.3 does work on MacOS 11 Big Sur. Note that you can no longer purchase a new seat purchase of Bluebeam Revu for Mac. I have tried other PDF applications on the Mac, but I have not found one which can take measurements the way that Bluebeam Revu can.
