  1. I have just set up a NAS drive for the network. The main drivers for this were for data space, security and sharing. My problem being when I go to add a WGR in say the 'plan file' on 'workstation A', from another 'section file' on workstation B' I get this message: -54 No write permission Attempt to Open File - FSOPEN On previous setups I have not had this problem. Current Description of network -NAS-LaCie ethernet disk mini (XFS file format), with backup external disk LaCie 'daisy-chained' to it via USB (HFS format) -The ethernet disk has its own share management interface via web browser, no controlling computer required. -All workstations connect to it with there own user names and passwords. Same share permissions, Read and write. -All 'Mac OS X' 10.4 I have tried logging on as the same user, to no avail. I have also tried working off the backup drive (HFS format) thinking that the XFS format is causing the problem. But it still maybe as the backup drive is 'daisy-chained' to the XFS formatted NAS disk. I have also tried turning off the firewalls didn't do anything. Description of previous office A -Dedicated server with 'Mac OS X Server' -All workstations connect to it with there own user names and passwords. Same share permissions, Read and write. -All 'Mac OS X' No problem. Description of previous office B - One workstation dedicated as 'server' ('Mac OS X' only), with external firewire hard disk. -All workstations connect to it with as the user of the said workstation. -All 'Mac OS X' No problem. I have a theory that the cause of this being that it is not 'Apple' software managing the NAS disk and/or its 'XFS' file format. anyone with any experience on this? thoughts? Obviously we can work around it being a small firm (2-3 full-time VW users), by adding and updating WGR's when the files are not open, but it is very undesirable.
  2. It would be great if you could you use batch print to make a multi-page PDF. I have tried by saving as a PDF (Mac OS X) but it only does the first page...? At the moment I save each sheet as a PDF and then combine them after with an Automator workflow or Acrobat. No were near as fast as if you just printed to PDF from VW. I have been told ArchiCAD can do this, I hope this can be done in VW!
  3. Ah no, not that inconvenient. I meant not as fast as printing all my VW sheets into one PDF. The Automator work flow is faster than Acrobat. And Acrobat is great for doing what you mentioned or putting more drawings in or taking some out. Thanks Kevin... seems like this is the case
  4. Got confused with AutoDesk buying Alias... thought I read that somewhere... just did a search... guess not. was hoping for an answer though...
  5. Is there a way you can you use batch print to make a multi-page PDF? I have tried by saving as a PDF (Mac OS X) but it only does the first page...? At the moment I save each sheet as a PDF and then combine them after with a workflow or Acrobat. No were near as fast. I have been told ArchiCAD can do this, I hope this can/will be ported this over to VW now that Graphisoft owns VW.
  6. I like it... I think I have a grip of it now though, I'll not save the VP Cahce and just re-render for finals. I PDF at that time then anyway. Ta
  7. I am having an issue at work that I don't not have at home. the saved file sizes go from around 5mb (with a detailed model of a multi storey dwelling) to 40 or even 180mb. Using final shaded polygon or openGL rendering. using viewports to represent the computer model. From my experiments and reading it seems to be a saving the 'Viewport chache' causes this. At home this does not seem to be a problem, with around a max of 13-20mb. i have yet to muck around with the DPI settings for the sheet layers at home to see the difference. here are the specs. Work: VW 12.0.0 Mac OS 10.3 to 10.4 G4s to G5s, 768mb to 1gb RAM Home: VW 12.0.1 Mac OS 10.4.6 G5, 1.25gb RAM Is this a bug fixed in 12.0.1, or am I just expecting too much! ie I should turn down the DPI and/or not bother saving the 'Viewport Chache'
