  1. 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
  2. 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.
  3. Definitely check that snap to tangent isn't activated. This can cause some snap weirdness.
  4. 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
  5. 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.

  6. 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
  7. 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.
  8. 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
  9. Using the keyboard to change to openGL is pretty quick.
  10. 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.
  11. I'm a custom millwork fabricator, and have to prepare shop drawings for all manner of custom cabinetry and other millwork. One thing I run across all the time is how to present plan views that look good. My cabinets are all either extrudes, or InteriorCAD cabinets, which look terrible in a top/plan view. But the walls and doors look good. Flipping to a dashed hidden line rendering, the cabinets look good, the but not the walls and doors. What's the trick to get both looking good? Right now, I create 2 viewports, one with a crop to show just the walls, and one with a crop to just show the cabinets. But it's a pain, especially around door and window casings. Is there a better way?
  12. Is there a way to speed things up after a PDF import? I'm working with some floor plans, tracing them out, but every view change or geometry added is slow as molasses. And the CPU fan is running constantly. Why so laboured? Can I reduce the resolution of the PDF to speed things up? I realize my computer is not the latest and greatest, but it works fine otherwise.

  13. I got it. The colour was being controlled by OSx. I had the highlight colour selected as graphite,, the same colour as the background in the class editing dialogue box. Your image tipped me off, your highlight colour is blue.
  14. No luck. To clarify, my navigation palette behaves like your image, I have no trouble seeing the selected layer or class there. But when I go to the editing window, the background there is the same colour as the highlighting. What is controlling that background colour? In the image below, the dimension class is selected.
  15. I've just upgraded to VW2020, and am using dark mode. What setting controls the highlighting of layers/class in the dialogue boxes? I can't see when I've highlighted a class or layer. I've gone through all the interactive appearance settings, but I don't know which one controls the highlighting within menus. See attached image. I think one of these classes is selected, but how do you know? Thanks VW2020 sp.3 mid-2015 MacBook Pro
