  1. Update: the split point tool seems to be working normally today! I also tried splitting a wall with openings in it and they were unaffected! (I'm not aware of any updates being installed...?) Thanks! On a related note (I think), I haven't been able to get the Split Tool in the Point mode to even work on walls with VW2021. Split by Line does work on walls. Split by Point does work on line objects. I'm working on files that were migrated from VW2020 - where the tool worked just fine. Is there some wall-related setting that needs to be adjusted? Thanks.

  3. Thanks - but that's where I was looking. I only see a 1-sided, a 2-sided and a 3-sided option, not a 2-sided corner option. It looks like all of the objects in the VW library are just variations on the basic fireplace object, which doesn't insert as a corner unit. I'm thinking that I will need to construct this as a corner window object for my interior elevations. Unfortunately, I have often found that these resource objects are too limited and clunky - or else way too specific. Trying to make them work really bogs down the design process to a point where 3D modeling doesn't make sense. I would say please focus on developing & improving highly customizable generic objects like cabinets, fireplaces, stairs, etc. Everything we draw is custom, so we need to be able to play around with all of the current offerings. Thank you
  4. I'd love to find a corner fireplace object. Ideally, the fireplace object would have two additional configuration options: corner right & corner left - as well options for sidewall vent location that include back and side. Of course this object would need to be inserted at the corner intersection of two walls. Thanks!
  5. I am having this issue with one particular Viewport (ortho/perspective), rendering FinalQuality w/ Hidden Line. It gets stuck (beach ball) in the "convert" phase of the rendering & I have to Force-Quit. If I omit the Hidden Line aspect, it renders fine, just slow. Other Viewports of the same model with the same settings render fine.
  6. Looks like using "File>Open" will work! (Dragging the icon and changing the file info don't work) Thank you very much.
  7. Okay great! What's the trick? Right now I'm unable to open a couple of *.mcd files.
  8. I'm wondering if I should be able to open *.mcd files created on a PC with my Mac. I'm guessing not...
  9. Would someone from Vectorworks please respond to this question? I'm sure this "work-around" is not what you had in mind.
  10. Could someone from Vectorworks please respond? This a Mac OS X. (We did happen to delete most foreign language fonts) Is there a setting to adjust?
  11. In VW 12.5 (OS X) when I create a PDF by using Export>PDF, every "tab" space in my text boxes is printed as a visible box or a box w/ an 'x'. (I noticed this when I got the prints back from the print shop.) This doesn't happen when I create PDF's thru the Mac OS X print dialogue.
  12. Okay....! That's kind of odd - but it worked! Thanks so much for the reply.
  13. Those shortcuts can still be edited in the Workspace Editor>Menus>View. Your default workspace may have been reset when you upgraded.
  14. I've selected "No" & I'm not able to change the appearance of the window. Usually it's possible to change line weights after creation even if I "use at creation"
  15. The windows are in class "Windows-main" Do you mean the "use at creation" option?
