    Massing model

    As an office we do a lot of urban design. Massing model is a tool we use a lot. quick to alter and to calculate. Big problem is massing models doesn't read holes (courtyards), it closes up. Hope this can be fixed. Would be a big saver. There are also some thing that the tool could make the tool better. -alternative plinth height. -floors to layer conversion -cantilevers -solid to massing model.
  2. Is there allready a tool mad wich Scatters symbols random over a closed poly area?
  3. Ah can change it in the object info
  4. Can you change objects that where drawn in screen plane3 to object that reacts as layer plane? I had drawn in plan objects in screen mode (plots). Now when I orbit my drawing those orbites stay in screen mode and doesn't rotate with the rest.
  5. If I export or print pdf with bold text, the bold text isn't bold anymore. If I print directly it's ok and if i copy from vectorworks to indesign and then print or export pdf it is also ok. What can be the problem. I use version 2009. with kind regards, Vhector
  6. Yes that's faster, thank you
  7. Found the toggle number '33'. SetPref(33, NOT GetPref(33));
  8. Often I need an angled end cap for a wall. Normally i draw another wall with the needed angle and T-joine the wall, after that I delete the angled wall so it leaves an angled end cap. This is when auto join is off in the preferences, with 'on' the wall repairs itself to a straight wall. But with drawing it is handy to have auto join on. Can i make a toggle of it instead of going continu to the preferences. Or is there another way for an angled end cap Vincent
  9. Lately, we do alot of projects in China and Russia. My problem are the characters. If I copy past it it often works. Only if I do it in the data slot, question marks appear instead of the characters. More people have the problem, more important, is there a sollution. Vincent
  10. Solved it. The pdf name was in Russian. Just renamed it.
  11. I get this message. What does it means and what can I do about it? PDF Import... Unable to import some OR all of the document's pages! Thanx

    Hi, I often get cad drawing with elements like parkings, trees etc. in the same layer and are not symbols. You have alot of selection ways, like color, class line type and other types. Is there also a way to select on objects with same area or area between, like 12,1m2 and 12,8m2. Vincent
  14. There is a lot of simple thing that can beeen improven in the sheetlayers. Like When adding or delating the quantity of Pages, the flexebility of putting the extra befor or after the pages instead of always the centre. Everytime I have to move the viewports. Other thing is, When changing printer (pdf or other) the page scales in every centre instead as the whole.
