  1. it is gone with VW 2022...! byebye OGL
  2. i use PDF Sqeezer...a lifesaver! reduces all PDF sizes (up to 90%) with great Quality via Print menu...not for free but worth it!
  3. i imagine this is a CU problem or could it be an other issue? i get Ghostimages while panning and or zooming.. very disturbing! VW 2021 iMac (Retina 5K, 27 Zoll, 2019) Radeon Pro 580X 8 GB Ghostimage.mov
  4. i am having the same problem since today newest VW newest MacOS ....kills me it's like taking off a key from a piano....! any tricks lately? Bthw wheelclick on a logitech mouse is working...
  5. so many times i target theese dots an do not hit them. They are very small on high resolution monitors. It takes a lot of concentration and there is enough space arround to enlarge them...should be easy and would make my work less exhausting. Anybody else?

    Rhino export

    anything new in this matter i try to export a whole project for planning partners so i shifteted everything to one layer( bevore that i grouped each layer content) but it comes as one lump of a solid...? any tricks welcome!!
  7. im am working in VW2021and was hoping for better but... and somehow glad that i am not the only person missing that! there is a statusbar if you work in designlayer but not when updating openGL viewports .... actually there is great joy and quite a bit of frustration in working with VW ... little things like the (too) small ankerpoints are hard to target on screens with high resolution nowadays...plenty of white screen real estate arround this area...
  8. i would really appreceate if i would know what my programm is doing... for example: rendering viewports in open GL --no progress bar or any information how long the render takes are you rendering at all opening a backup file and change view to viewport - pinball and in finder "application is not responding" if i wait several minutes tadaaaah! here i am pinball stopps programm reacts again. i have a several breaks and waits and no idea whats going on. the status bar would be great if it would let me know whats going on. ...please talk to me!!;_)
  9. if you are able to print try PDF Squeezer costs about 8Euro but great small PDFs
  10. i cannot change the appearence of text on a floorplan viewport ...VW2021! any tricks?
  11. i totally agree! there are many little things i would love to change which you notice only if you work a week for 10hours a day ... the level of concentration is exhausting but a UI designer who doesn't works with a program will never notice... the goal should be the automation of a musical instrument...you wouldn't change the keys on a piano maybe only on the left side or the change the pedals because you like it that way...
  12. it is great to be able to split the Navigation tabs but usage still a bit strange if you constantly working a consistence UI would be great. Why not doubleclicking somewhere in the line and make editing names in rightclick ? or have the clickable column in front (very left) on both palettes! so i have to concentrate which column i click because it is different in sheet layers and designlayers, and than even the sheetlayer is activatet one desgnlayer is highlighted for some reason.
  13. ok ill try to move it.... moving is not possible for me i guess ill post it again...

  15. hi i use a tool called PDF Squeezer (App store a few bugs) it is great as you are able to create pretty small ( a fraction of print to PDF ) good PDFs via the print command (using a little Helpertool "PDF Print Service Creator") game changer for me. I usually do Viewports on sheetlayers set it to 300dpi and set my documentpreferences do keep viewportmemory. (Which increases filesizes but reduces rendertime) and than print from sheetlayer via PDF squeezer so far my best experience...
  16. for my oppinion it is an unusable tool i would model a stair quicker than to understand this tool ..for instancce i tried a straight stair with one landing and if you start with no preset i couldn't get it done...mind you i started with "Minicad" so i am too unfamiliar with the program...
  17. an other example how to make an easy task difficult...! now i have to create a texture than i have to create an other class than i have to apply... what else is coming? it is all changing from an creative easy to use tool to an gloryfied spredsheet in my opinion...sorry but it drives me mad. It is one thing if you need it and want to use it but an other for all the 90% butter and bread jobs to complicate work. Is there a simple door plug in arround?
  18. Did this...not working! not on my tempate or a blanc document....does it work for anybody else? SP4 on a i Mac and OS 10.15.4 bthw
  19. i set it to unstyled but it seems to be impossible to give it a texture as it was easily possible in VW 2019 see screenshot. But it is not working in VW 2020 anymore instead i have to fill in a form larger than my taxreport for each door...really enoying!! i want a simple door tool! PLEASE!!
  20. Thanks Pat! i never had to do this and i am setting the Render mode to Texture ( not "Class texture") i do many different doors in this project and as far as i know i was allways able to render it that way..or am i wrong?
  21. does anyone know why textures on doors do not render in open GL...?
  22. making several sections would be much easier if you could choose an unrendered viewport render mode. or even to choose to stay in the designlayer and make the next section viewport until you would like to rearrange them in an sheet layer. in the current method you have to wait until it is rendered than go back to the designlayer and start again. ...and bthw if you have Open GL choosen it just takes a brake and you have to wait because of the non excisting progress bar you dont't know what the maschine is doing!!!
  23. please mark the activation column somehow . navigation means for me i have to remenber where i am working ( layers or sheet layers) than i have to find the wright column and than click Once! because if i doubleclick somewhere else in the line it changes attributes. with sheetlayers its on the very far left side and in Designlyers its somewhere in the middle. this is so strange if you work all day , because you automate where to click here i have to read first. how about making it a on/ off botton? or have the outlined hook in the navigation barr and have a solit colourd one where the outlined is now....? for my understanding its called "navigation" not to navigate to the point where you click 😉
  24. yes, i am using shortcuts (a lot)....but than again if it works with a tool why not with a shortcut. It feels a bit like you have a key in a piano and it does not work but you can still sing this tune..;-)
