  1. Quote from Petri - "I'll continue a bit, despite public demand." I was wondering how much 'public demand' it would take to oust Mr.Petri(I.don.t.know.what.the.special.rant.in.brackets.has.to.with.anyones.sister.) While it's true most knowledge forums seem have to endure a smart attituded, over-zealous hall monitor who knows it all but fails to remember the reason for having a forum like this, I wonder how many votes we would need to abyss Petri and be free of his smug ranting. We come here because we are having problems, or are new, or learning. Can we ban Petri's posts so they don't show up, thus freeing us from the over-bearing self righteousness of this over-qualified and smarmy malcontent? Or, start a new section called 'Unhelp hints' edited by Petri, which could have his usual ravings to snigger at for entertainment, but when you actually had a problem or query, we would be free of his ubiquitous suggestion to go read the help section.(Which.we.already.read.for.four.hours.and.you.are.the.reason.we.haven't.come.to.the.forum.yet.because.we're.guaranteed.a.smart.alec.reply.from.Petri.and .whoever.his.sister.is.I.don't.know.) I know what you're thinking... posts like this just encourage guys like Petri to charge on with their socially disabled police work. (But.it.makes.me.feel.better.) How about some recognition that we are here to learn, not to be lambasted by the self-appointed high preist of VW knowledge. (End.of.rant.I.am.going.back.to.say.hello.to.my.sister.)

  3. Is there a quick way to hatch around doors and windows. Currently, I am hatching the whole area, and 'cutting around' windows with a rectangle or polygon, and sending it backwards. Is there a way that mimics Autocads island hatching? Is there a quicker way than I am doing? Thanks
  4. Has anyone had a problem selecting multiple objects with a Microsoft Wireless Comfort Keyboard and Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 6000. I can only shift-click on 3 objects and when I select the fourth it 'un-selects' the three and the fourth is the only one left selected.I am using windows XP. Thanks in advance...
  5. I am considering a widescreen monitor and am interested in what happens to the VW image. Does it elongate (sideways)? Can you have a greater screen area and more menus down the sides? Also, what info can you give me on using a number of monitors at the same time? Many Thanks
  6. Fair Point...I started out aligning the building to the site plan which is a reflection of my Autocad background. The reason I had 20 layers is because I had 5 units stepped down a slopping site, and so I put a story or roof etc., on each layer so I could change the elevation of each townhouse. Is there an easier way to do this? As it turn out, I emailed it to VW support here in Australia, and the roof that was rotating by itself, was corrupted, and when it was erased and replaced, the problem was solved. Have you heard of this? Thanks for your help,
  7. I have found if I erase the offending layer/object all other objects can be rotated. Does anyone know why?
  8. Hi, I have 20 layers and am trying to rotate all of them so my whole drawing is rotated. I have tried to select all with Show/Snap/Modify Others and then rotate, however only 1 layer and/or object rotates. What have I done wrong? Thanks in advance...dontevenjoke
