  1. Thanks guys I will give it a go and get back to you...! Richie
  2. Hi I know absolutley nothing aout scripts aprt from what they do...! I have a situation that i have to scale various items (text, rectangles, circles....) all by '.5'. When I select all the items and choose scale objects from the Tool Menu it scales everything but does so relative to the entire selection, in doing so moves items out of there originally position. I can do each item individually but was wondering if it was possible to write a script that I could first select a single item and then press the script command (or appoint a keyboard command to it) to scale the object by .5.....? Not sure how clear that is.. Worth a try...! Richie
  3. Hi Chris Thats more like it. My mistake is that i had been trying to save from Illustrator instead of Exporting. I will play around with this and see how i get on. Thanks again. Richie
  4. Sorry Katie... you have lost me there. I am trying to import an eps and have it come into VW as a vector file not a bitmap image. I wasnt using Import image i was using import EPSF. Thanks Richie
  5. I have an Ilustrator eps file that i want to import into VW 10.5 and have it as an editable object/s. The file is mainly text that was originally a Quark document but exported to eps. Is there a way i can do this. I dont need to be able to edit the text or anything like that, its just that its a company logo and i want to have it exactly as it appears in the eps. At the moment when i import it, it comes in as a bitmap. As it happens I may have to make a small 3D model of it and dont want to have to draw it again. Thanks Richie
  6. Thanks alanmac.... that seems to have worked Regards Richie
  7. Hi I have been trying to import images into VW 10.5.1 on a G5 1.8 with 1.2gb or RAM. The images are 24bit 6000 x 1000 TIFF files. I get the following message on them all: It had worked previously but I can remember changing anything on my machine. Any ideas...? Richie
  8. Hi We have drawn a project with the wall tool in VW10.5.1 and have doors as symbols insercted into the walls. We now want to drop the walls form being 'walls' to being polygons but want to keep the door opes and the doors as symbols. When we try by selecting the walls and then using the 'convert to polygon' tool we loose both the door ope and symbol. Is there a way around this....? Richie
  9. Go to System Preferences, then go to Keyboard and Mouse, then keyboard shortcuts. You can turn them all off or just the show hide dock one.....! Same thing happened me. Richie
  10. In our office of 7 VW 10.5.1 machines on OS X this happens quite often. It is especially annoying when the auotsave gets turned off as you sometimes dont realise until after VW has crashed and you go back into the drawing to discover that the amount of work lost was larger than that set in autosave. I know you can turn on the message asking if you want to save but that seems a little bit old fashioned to me. It the function is there it should work....! Richie
  11. 10.3.4 and VW 10.5.1 no problems as of yet
  12. Yes Katie as instructed on the 11th of March....!
  13. Any updates......? It happening on more files now....!
  14. Hi First off i am using a G5 with VW 10.5.1 and Mac OS 10.3.2. I have noticed recently that when working on a VW file that was created in a previous version of VW that i get a crash when trying to 'Add Surface' on two objects. The interesting thing is that one of the objects is always a circle or abject with a curve in it somewhere. I have been able to replicate this on other various machines in the office running the same software versions. It dosent happen on files that where created in VW 10.5. Is this a recognised bug and is there a fix....? Richie
  15. I guinea pigged it as well and you can now at least press the print button without VW crashing.....! I didnt really have a chance to check actually outputting something and dont think i will as i have ordered VW 10 but yes it does seem to have improved...!
  16. Anybody tried printing from 9.5.x to Panther .2 ......? Just ordered VW 10.5 for my office . Looking forward to being up to date with everything...! (Just hope Nemetschek doesnt decide to release VW 11 soon and charge me again for upgrading..... wink wink) richie
  17. I posted this on the printing plotting page but got no answers.... Anybody.....? Hi We currently have 8 seats of VW 9.5.2 on a network of Macs all bar one running OS 10.2.6 (or .7 on the G5) and the remaining one on OS 9.2 (for printing reasons). We have a HP 1055CM on the same network and have had all of the problems printing to it that i found listed in these forums. We havent had any success in getting it to print consistantly from VW 9.5.2. My question is... Has the problems with printing been sorted in VW 10.5 as we will upgrade if it has but will not if it hasnt... Any input from users would be much appreciated.... Thanks in adavnce Richie

  19. As far as i can remember the 1520 is not a USB printer right.....? Does OS X's printer sharing let you print to serial and parallel printers across a network...? I thought it was just USB..! Richie
  20. Thanks, but i am just after drawing the block - 440x215 with 10mm joints. I have lost more than a day trying to figure that out. What was catching me was the dash factor. I didnt quite understand how it worked......! In saying that, it still is very difficult to draw hatches. Has it improved in newer versions of VW....? If not its going on the wish list. If anyone wants this block hatch i will email it......! Richie
  21. Thanks for that, I had a look at those hatches.... all are very useful... the problem i have is that at the scale i am drawing i will have to show 10mm joints in the blockwork. I have worked out the pattern myself for block and brick in elevation but without the joints.... i was at it all day friday and almost got it but cant afford to spend any more time on it..... Is ther somewhere on the web that you can buy VW hatches....? Richie
  22. Hi Do any of you guys know where i can get a brick and block hatch with joints in the following dimensions. I have tried to make the hatch myself but am always very confused by the way you make hatches in vectorworks 9.5: Brick - 215mm long by 65mm high with a 10mm joint all around Block - 440mm long by 215mm high with a 10mm joint all around. Thanks in advance Richie
  23. I finally figured it out..... The files in question where corrupt somehow.... and they all included workgroup refernces. I basically made new files and imported the reference files again and voila.... it works... thanks for your help anyway.....!
  24. 512mb on most machines, more on the rest with anything between 100 and 300 assigned to Vectorworks. It only crashes when trying to print to postscript machines and only in a few drawings. The postscript printers work fine printing from other packages on the machines that are crashing......?
