  1. I am exporting files from .vwx to .dwg and they are coming up blank . I am testing with Autocad LT for Mac , nothing . Sent a file to autocad user , nothing . I have been exporting like I have , forever, no issues . any ideas ?
  2. Hello All Ready to make the plunge to Mac OS Mojave , is it all clear to work with Vectorworks ? I am running VW 2017 , will upgrade to VW 2019 , then upgrade to Mac OS Mojave. I am gun shy ,as I didi this when it came out and it was a nightmare , reinstalling previous OS system. So, do I get an Amen on making the leap ? Thanks Ian Graham oomph
  3. Don't hold your breath. I turfed Mojave , re installed High Sierra , cost me time and money , but had to be done until this is resolved . VW was unusable and I was going mental
  4. Tim , I took Mojave OS off , reinstalled High Sierra , spent a day doing it , but I won't install Mojave for a while , I typically wait , didn't this time and it was a disaster . In my opinion , my only option at this time . Ian
  5. Jim, I am looking g at reverting back to High Sierra, in the meantime would it be better if I upgrade to 2019 with Mojave , I realize not fully compatible , but will it be better than 2017 ? Ugh
  6. Hello all , I am here as I just installed Mojave and Vectorworks 2017 is crashing like crazy , super slow etc . Typically I am instructed to wait until all things are sorted out , I didn't, I regret it . Question: I am running vectorworks Architect 2017 , should I upgrade to 2019 , wil it be better with Mojave , or equally as bad Reverting back to High Sierra seems like a big task as well with a lot of chaos Any help is appreciated Ian
  7. Hello I recently upgraded from VW2014 to VW2014 Architect. When I save the file form 2010 , it adds the v2014 at end of file, not overriding the file , but now a copy with new file name. How can i control this , so it does;t add the v2014 at end and overwrites my existing file, so I only have one file ? Thanks Ian
  8. importing into a design layer, creating a viewport in design layer . For example I am doing a vanity millwork detail , plan , elevations , sections and details , I will import the plan from the architectural file . I will try doing everything as viewports in saved sheets to see if I can remedy this. Thanks ! Ian
  9. If I have a plan in my file and am doing a blow up detail of part of the plan on a saved sheet via viewport , the text is huge . I can go into Object Info and select Advanced properties and scale text so it looks same as other text. Problem solved. BUT If I import a plan from external resource [ another file ] and import the plan into a larger scale , for say , millwork , the text is huge. Is there a way to control this as we did with above > Object Info and select Advanced properties and scale text so it looks same as other text. When I do , the dialogue box is limited and doesn't give me the option to scale text . We have been looking on web for answers , but nothing Any ideas ? Thanks Ian
  10. Hello Using Vectorworks 2010 , any way on importing Revit files ? Newer versions of Vectorworks able to do that ? Thanks Ian
  11. new to viewports and love them. Quick question, if I am setting up viewports on my sheets, how do I control the outline box of my viewport ? Can I select it and not print it. My problem is that my boxes are different sizes and not aligning. I was looking for a dialogue box , no such luck. Vectorworks 2010 , Imac 27" Thanks Ian
  12. Thanks I will try, much appreciated. Ian
  13. Thanks I'm using 2010 , doesn't have that option for scaling text
  14. Can I scale worksheets ? I want to be able to use a Door schedule worksheet on large 24 x 36 drawings and small 11 x 17 drawings but can't scale it , even if I use different layer and scale, tried viewports, couldn't do it. any thoughts? using vectorworks architect 2010 on a Mac Thanks Ian
  15. looked again, nowhere to be found, I'm using VW 2010. Worked in VW 2009
  16. I use the ceiling grid tool to create tile pattern, in FURN/Fixture tool set, very useful. could adjust the centre point and location of grid in the shade, [ arrange the tile pattern ] doesn't seem to allow you to do that anymore? Am I missing something here ? Ian
  17. Is there any way to have the palettes formatted in a rigid manner, on the Perimeter of page like Windows version of vectorworks . I'm on a mac and the palettes float to where I place them. Any ideas ? Thanks Ian
  18. It just switched back to white cross ? just minutes ago. wierd. Thanks Katie. Hopefully it stays that way. I didn't adjust anything. I did see white full screen cursor , Thanks Peter. maybe it's a karma thing. Ian
  19. 1920 x 1200 , 23" cinema display + 20 " display 1680 x 1050 the cursor is black with white outline, pan is OK, BUT when I select a tool [ dimension , anything ] it is black and i can't see it [ the plus sign ] , when in white background > OK. It's when I go to black background , the plus sign stays black. No alternative cursor setting
  20. Should I download SP1 as well. I just downloaded SP2, thinking it would cover everything. If I install Sp1 now, will it screw things up ? Back to the problem, everything is fine, if not in black background. It just seams the curser is black on a black background. Tried using full screen cursor , drives me nuts. Please help, thanks, Ian
  21. Downloaded SP2 , installed it, didn't help. Thanks Ian
