  1. Well, I went to create a file to post up, but it was working as I wanted. Now I realize that my 3D object in the original file was a solid subtraction. As soon as I create a solid subtraction, all the line of the geometry are lost. I suppose that's normal behaviour? Which is too bad. Why can't that part of the model remain intact I wonder?
  2. No one? I thought this should be an easy one. Surely I'm missing a simple setting somewhere whereby all the separate components that make up an extrude are merged together...
  3. Hi. Since VW2019, I haven't been able to view the geometry of my 3D models in a viewport. I used to be able to go into the advanced properties of a viewport and uncheck "merge structural objects with the same fill" box, and then see the lines of the components that make up a 3D part. Is there another setting I'm missing? For reference, these are millwork parts, MDF specifically, that I would like to see the construction of when I create a section viewport. See attached.... Thanks for any help. VW2020SP5 Architect, InteriorCAD Mid-2015 MacBook Pro
  4. It should be possible. I would like this feature a lot.
  5. For a while I had a problem with the purge command deleting everything in my drawings, so I quit using it for a while. I just checked, and it's working normally again. I haven't changed any purge settings lately. I really hope you didn't lose a ton of work! I'm on VW2020 SP5, mid-205 Macbook Pro, Architect, InteriorCAD.
  6. What is this extra frame, or ?? on my curtain wall? It appears with no fill, but is visible in all view. I can't seem to get rid of it. See attached: Mid-2015 MacBook Pro VW 2020 Architect, SP5, InteriorCAD
  7. I think this might be a bug. It happened to me occasionally on VW2019, and now 2020. I can't replicate it, however. I usually just delete the offending dimension and re-do it.
  8. Definitely check that snap to tangent isn't activated. This can cause some snap weirdness.
  9. Thanks, a very thorough response. I'll give this a try the next time it happens and see what's up. I'll report back if I can find the culprit. Thanks
  10. I keep getting this error message, even though the viewport name isn't being used by another object. Any one else having this problem? I always have to go back to the viewport annotations to change the detail number, it would be nice to just assign the number when I create the viewport.

  11. Is there a way to run 2 installations of VW on the same computer, using the same serial? I'd like to test out some software, but don't want to use my day-to-day VW as a beta tester. Right now, running a mid-2015 MacBook Pro, Mojave, VW 2020 . Thanks
  12. Nevermind. I think I figured it out. It's the actual colour of the class. I changed my background to be lighter grey, and the line colour of the class and I can see the objects again.
  13. I must be missing a setting. What is controlling the colour of greyed-out items while "show other objects while in edit mode"? I have VW2020, using dark-mode, and my drawing background is grey. The greyed-out items are showing is this pale yellow/brown, which is not easy to see. What can I change to make these items more visible? Screenshot attached. Thanks
  14. Using the keyboard to change to openGL is pretty quick.
  15. Thanks for the reply. It's getting there, what settings are you using for your viewports, ie: what rendering? I assume this is not top/plan. As for InteriorCAD, I'm mostly abandoning that for now. I just upgraded to 2020, and haven't yet purchased InteriorCAD. Unfortunately, it just doesn't work so I'm moving forward with simple extrudes to represent the cabinets.
