    Screen recording has been a very efficient way to share walk throughs for us. I use windows... On Windows 10, the built in X-box software will capture a screen video but it only shows one window at a time. OBS studio is another free tool that is very flexible for screen recording. Worth a little study on youtube.

    Drawing Setup

    Hans, I have a checklist that we use to outsource the creation of our Vectorworks base file to freelancers. Email me at greg@plansforthefuture.net and I'll send you a link that breaks it down step by step with screenshots of all the settings etc. Use the parts that work for you, adapt the rest. Cheers,

    I struggle with this as well. Inquiring minds want to know.
  4. Guys, I may be premature here, but I have just updated to 2019 sp2 and the proposed contours are stopping at the limits of grading line... YAY!!!
  5. Unfortunate... old system worked well until it was "improved"... now to get drawings to look right, I am either stuck tracing individual changed topo lines or creating a second DTM and cropping it down to the limits of grading as a current work around. That's pretty intensive and expensive too. Just Sayin'
  6. VW 2019 coming out... are we going to get this fixed?
  7. Alright... still no fix. So here is my pain-in-the-butt work around. Once grades have been worked out, I copy the dtm. One dtm I set to just show existing topo. the other I set to show proposed contours but make the dtm outline the same as the limits of grading so the "proposed" changed contours stop where they are supposed to and always did before Vectorworks messed up this freakin' tool. So when this gets fixed, I would like to request an added feature for the DTM. Please give us a pull down that we can set the units and decimal settings for the dtm just like the staking tool has. That would be awesome! That way we would not have to change the drawing units any time we wish to update the dtm labels. I like my spot elevations to have two decimal points, my dtm to not have any decimal points, but all my drawing dimensions to be in feet and inches. Just FYI. Anybody else out there do this?
  8. Just installed SP4... still no fix on this. 😢 GAHHHH
  9. Beuller... Beuller.... Approaching 2 months on this with no fix.
  10. This is a big deal! It makes our grading plans extremely hard to read... definitely not the way civil or landscape architecture industries show the change of grade documentation... Waiting on the edge of my seat for the service pack to fix this and go back to the way it used to work correctly in previous versions.
  11. Yes, I am seeing the same... I am researching how to only show proposed contours that have changed... no luck yet.
  12. I would like to be able to set the units of the DTM independant of the drawing units in the same way the setting is used in the stake tool.

  14. I love the way the stake object units can be set independent of the drawing units! It would be great if the grade object could do the same. If it can, please let me know. Thanks, Greg

    Service Pack 3 seems to have fixed this issue! Thank you Vectorworks!
