  1. Is there a way to dock the tool pallets. Some sorta dock, some won't. OIP, Resource pallet, Attributes pallet. Trying to reduce them to just icons with a flyout. I've used the push pin. Still would like to reduce the basic tools and other to just small icon buttons
  2. I learned alot of how to setup a drawing from the actual file "Alexandria Lofts" The Farmhouse shown in the 2009 videos. Looks more like what I want my drawings to do and look like. I am not really interested in the photo render stuff... Any chance the "Farm House" vwx file is available for learning?
  3. Guilitis I used this video http://download2.nemetschek.net/TechTips/Custom_Title_Block/Custom_Title_Block.html to get my title block I use in Autocad into VW 2009. It took me several tries to get it right. Mostly, the Text. You can set up text to be adjusted for each sheet layer
  4. I created a custom title block in VW 2008. Now I would like to bring into VW 2009 and save it there. Whats the best way?
  5. Finally, the info I needed to get my custom title block up and running. I probably have 4 books and two video learning discs. None explain the process as clearly and completely. Very frustrating until now!!!
  6. NNA told me I my P4, 2.2ghz, 512mb, Win XP machine will run VW 2009. I do not have Renderworks.
  7. What are the system requirements for VW2009?
  8. Not sure my system will support 2009
  9. NNA is offering me a deal to upgrade to 2009 from 12.5 Which will end 9/12. Since right now I have no idea what the improvements are to 2009 and they are not telling I can't really see going for it. Why can't they share what the enhancments are. I've tried asking and they are mum.
  10. You guys might as well be speaking arabic. I'm a struggling with vw12 and really have no idea what these changes to VW means. Can someone explain in more simple terms. I think my tendency to upgrade is going to be solely based on whether or not vw2009 is going to make learning / using VW any easier.
  11. Terry Ackerman's CD set WOW! If definetly seems VW can produce drawings the way I want. Right now it seems it can do anything as long as I know the program well enough.
  12. Pete Very nice. I'm impressed with using the 3d images on the the sheets. I think especially for a complicated roof it makes alot of sense. I tend to increase the weights on the wall lines in plans so they read heavier the dimension lines for instance. Personal choice really, I'm sure VW can handle that.
  13. I'm still working to learn VW. I'm alittle concerned that when I do actually get it up and running as my CAD system for preparing drawings on a daily basis I might not have the drawings actual look the way I want. Any one care to share sample con doc drawings to relieve my thinking on this issue. I have seen VW sample of con docs. Which are OK. Need to see more.
  14. Sorry I should have mentioned I'm using 12.5
