  1. Bruce,

    yes, i think it is a bug.

    i got the same result. double click, very slow does this uncontrolable behaivior.

    i could repeat this with polyline and 2d-polygon.

    i think the 2d-reshape(move handle) was done like this> click the vertex >drag the vertex>click at new location.

    if you slowy double click at the same location of the handle VW gets confused:-0

  2. we are working years with .OTF fonts (DIN.OTF, DINPRO.OTF).

    never ever had any issue withit.

    we use them in templates, reverences, pdf dwg export and import.

    i can not tell you if VW is designed for .OTF

    the funny thing is, the best way to understand a structure or a system is to build it as a mock up with cardboard or balsa wood at least for me.

  5. hello,

    we created a VW file with all our officestandards, such as hatches, images, walls, standard details and finaly our settings for dimensions. we created a dimensonchain with this settings in our drawing and made a >create symbol of this dimenson.

    this >officestandards< are added in the resource browser >>>browse drawing. you can make this also a favourite in your default drawing.

    if you need the settings of your dimensions (officestandards) you place a simbol of your dimensonin your drawing. done

  6. DEXIE,

    i have once imported 96 squarekilometers with a 5 by 5 grid

    so dont worry .

    first> the comma separated coordinates have to be imported and transfered into 3d points ( if you have difficulties with VW try DL-02 from sierra-soft , which should be free> creates a dxf file of the points).

    i would split the VW file into hand-able portions like 100mX100m

    > create a master-file and reference the parts

    before you do so check the DATUM of the Emap WGS84 .....

    it looks like your point are somewhere in africa CHAD???

  7. you can find this in your user manual

    Resources in Favorites

    For quick access, the Resource Browser can store links to VectorWorks files that contain resources that you use frequently. You can then import resources from a Favorites file into any VectorWorks file and not have to search for the file again. Remove the link when the file is of no further use. Favorite files are remembered for future sessions.

    Use the Files menu in the Resource Browser to create, use, and manage your Favorites list. Alternatively, add files (or aliases or shortcuts to the files) to the appropriate Favorites folder manually.

    Making the Current File a Favorite

    To make the current file a favorite:

    In the Resource Browser, select Add Current to Favorites from the Files menu.

    The file is added to the File list under Favorites.

    The file must be saved to be added as a favorite.

    Making an Unopened File a Favorite

    To make an unopened file a favorite:

    1.

    In the Resource Browser, select Add New Favorite Files from the Files menu.

    The standard Open dialog box opens.

    2.

    Select the file to make a favorite, and then click Open.

    The file is added to the File list under Favorites.

    The file must be saved in the same version of VectorWorks as the current file to be added as a favorite.

    Multiple files can be selected and added as favorites at the same time; alternatively, press Ctrl+A (Windows) or Command+A (Macintosh) to select all files at once.

    Opening the Current Favorite

    To open the current favorite:

    1.

    In the Resource Browser, select the favorite file to open from the File list.

    2.

    Select Open Current Favorite from the Files menu.

    The file opens.

    Importing a Resource from a Favorite

    To import a resource from a favorite file:

    1.

    In the Resource Browser, select the favorite file to access from the File list.

    The file name is displayed as the current file in the File list, and its resources display in the resource window.

    2.

    Select the desired resource from the resource display window. To import the resource for future use, select Import from the Resources menu. To use the resource immediately, double-click it to activate it, or select Apply or Make Active, if applicable, from the Resources menu. (Alternatively, drag the resource onto an object or to a location in the current file.)

    Once the resource is placed or applied in the drawing, it is added to the Resource Browser for the current file.

    Multiple resources can be selected and imported at the same time.

    Refreshing Favorites from Disk

    To update the resources from all favorite files:

    In the Resource Browser, select Refresh Favorites from Disk from the Files menu.

    All current favorite files are reloaded into the Resource Browser, to reflect any changes that occurred since they were loaded when this VectorWorks session began.

    Revealing the Location of the Current Favorite

    To reveal the location of a favorite file:

    1.

    In the Resource Browser, select the favorite file to reveal from the File list.

    The file name is displayed as the current file in the File list, and its resources display in the resource window.

    2.

    Select Reveal Current Favorite from the Files menu.

    Either Windows Explorer or Macintosh Finder opens to the folder that contains the file.

    Removing Favorites

    To remove a single favorite file:

    1.

    In the Resource Browser, select the favorite file to delete from the File list.

    2.

    Select Remove Current Favorite from the Files menu.

    The file is removed from the Favorites list.

    To remove all favorite files:

    1.

    In the Resource Browser, select Remove All Favorites from the Files menu.

    A confirmation dialog box opens.

    2.

    Click Yes to remove all favorites.

    All favorite files are removed from the Favorites list.

    Adding a Favorite Manually

    To create a favorite manually (not through the Resource Browser):

    1.

    Place the file that you want to appear on the Favorites list (or a shortcut or alias that points to the file) in one of the following folders.

    Favorites Folder

    Effect on Favorites Lists

    [user]/Libraries/Favorites

    The file appears only in your Favorites list ([user] is the user data folder specified in your VectorWorks preferences)

    [Workgroup]/Libraries/Favorites

    (VectorWorks Design Series required)

    The file appears in the Favorites list of any user who has the workgroup folder set up in VectorWorks preferences

    The file is added to the File list under Favorites.

    2.

    In the Resource Browser, select Refresh Favorites from Disk from the Files menu.

    Only files that are in your user Favorites folder can be removed with the commands in the Resource Browser. (See User Folders Preferences for more information.) Files that were placed in a workgroup Favorites folder must be removed manually.
