  1. iPad is restricted by iTunes and its software... a pity, i guess... Would have been better to make it a stand alone pad... so any one can install what they want.... and no multitasking... bummer Robert
  2. Work with VW 12 and was asked may times why not draw plans with walls... my answer: you get a hybrid drawing and symbols will insert in wall (like toilets) when not wanted. I draw walls just with rectangles and ploygons and add surface them together. More people have reasons not to draw with the wall tool in VW 12? Robert
  3. Well, setting aside when-it-is-an-oval-and--- discussion: Still the problem remains when the offsettool is used on a rotated oval, i will not get a smaller rotated oval but a polyline (some are bezier, some are spline based) with a wierd shape. So why is this? And using values is nice, but needs calculation.... Anyone from Nemetschek?? Robert
  4. When i try to offset an ellips (made by ellipse by box tool) which has been rotated, it seems the duplicate is not excact a smaller version of the original.... it looks like an alien....how to overcome? Robert
  5. Well we draw in 2d, like technical drawings. So when 3d locus is placed in this drawing it becomes a 3d drawing. The fact is that some people here at my office do not understand when a view is in isometric the drawing dissapears (a floorplan as a symbol, and in this symbol an other symbol is deleted from library, this symbol becomes a 3d symbol due to a 3d locus)
  6. Thanks for the ideas/ input. What my point is here, is that the drawing becomes a hybride one: 2d/3d. One can ask himself : is that what i want? Robert
  7. Anyone ever has noticed that when deleting a (used) symbol from the library there is a 3d locus placed there where once this symbol used to be in the drawing? We work with VW version 12,5,3 on a mac. Is there a reason for this? Or is this a bug? Robert
  8. If in a symbol chain dims are present, after imported the symbol into an other document, the chain dims are disappeared. (I checked Classe visibility) Version 12.5.0 Any ideas? (beside ungrouping to normal dims) Robert
  9. Anyone have noticed the difference between printing patterns on a Xante accel-a-writer 4N with Quarts (an Quarts imaging) enabled and disabled? With Quarts enabled patterns become inversed (black dots will be white, whits space will be black) Is it a bug? Robert VW 12.1.0, G5 macos 10.4
  10. Hi all! I have several viewports which i would like to export as epsf or as pdf format. seems that the size of those files are very big... so other people can not work with it in, let say, Illustrator. Is there a way to "explode" viewports, so all that is left are some ploygons and lines? Any tip how to reduse filesize?? (the exported filesize) Robert

    hmm i do not recall that this is possible...
  12. I mean, i used this "wall" insertion feature... i thought u meant that at first... But, indeed upper right corner will also work, hahahaa Robert
  13. maybe Katie could attach this picture of mine, i can not see how to do this, other than creating a link to a webpage... BTW thanks Katie for your reply, did not see this worked for "normal" symbols too :-)
  14. We have a VW script for selecting Dimensions by KIND. Nou with the new chain dimensions i would like to select them too, with the same script. BUT it seems chain dims is a plug-in object, and has no unique number, is it?? So how do i select a chain dim by KIND, or do i need to rewrite my script? (i know one can select by Class) Thanks Robert
