  1. couldn't get it to work
  2. there's a free 2d cad package called libreCAD this does tangents circles to circles very easily, can then be imported to Vectorworks. Vectorworks has never been that good a drawing tangents
  3. anyone else having problems with callout tool, the callout shows up in a completely different place than position by mouse. The blue selection squares are showing in a different position than the callout and very large.
  4. still can't get the object info palette to stay the size I leave it when I close and then open VW
  5. How's version 2020 behaving are there still problems, is it worth me downloading and using it yet or should I wait until bugs are ironed out?
  6. yep totally agree, after the fiasco of problems with version 2019 I've decided not to download version 2020 until version 2021 comes out the problems should have been sorted by then. It seems we have all become Beta testers so Vectorworks don't have to spend time and money sorting problems out before releasing the new version.

    stair tool 2020?

    I think I'll wait to download the 2020 version, 2019 was very unstable will 2020 be the same. I agree the stair tool is not flexible I tend to used a combination of the "custom stair" and "simple stair" tools to model my own, in fact the custom stair tool is more user friendly its a shame a revamp of the stair tool wasn't done.
  8. Thanks Paulo, I always thought the better the Graphics card the quicker the Final quality rendering would be, never mind I'll have to save up for a faster CPU.
  9. Hi Paulo, just been rendering a drawing in the design layers and it still seems like the graphics card still does very little its still the CPU thats doing all the work, have I missed a setting somewhere, also my motherboard has a built in graphics card but this doesn't show up in the device manager or in Nvidia manager, should I see both graphics cards. I have a laptop with an Nvidia graphics card and an inbuilt one and these show upon the device manager and Nvidia manager. Regards
  10. Hi Paulo, I've set the graphic card settings to what you suggest but doesn't seem to make much of a difference, in fact when rendering views in sheet layers the graphics card doesn't seem to be doing a lot, its the CPU and RAM that's doing all the work, any other suggestions? I have installed the latest update, computer spec below.
  11. this is another problem I get when an item is selected the object info palette show no selection, switching between sheet layers seems to fix the problem
  12. Hi Paulo, will these settings apply to a Nvidia Quadro K1200, my PC has only the one graphics card.
  13. I tried Good Performance and Compatibility and Vectorworks became very slow so back to best performance, haven't noticed display not refreshing yet, it seemed to happen when I've been working on a drawing for a while.
  14. I've got it set to "best performance"
  15. Is anyone else getting a problem with the drawing not refreshing to show what you've just drawn, for example when I draw a new wall it doesn't appear until i zoom in or out
