  1. While I love the clip cube tool, it doesn't seem to work with reference layer viewports. I have the building architecture brought in as a referenced viewport. When I use the clip cube, it clips the objects drawn in the current file, but all the referenced layers are seen in their entirety. Is this normal? Is there a work around?

  2. I was having the same issues. I then tried changing workspaces, and used the callout tool in the Spotlight workspace. It worked fine. Somehow the callout tool when used in my custom workspace became corrupted. Ended up having to rebuild my workspace from scratch.

  3. May be another bug. When I edit a title block border style, I can add fields, but when I click on the border to edit the sheet data, the new fields won't show up. They do show up in the titleblock manager. So the only way i can add the data is to use the cumbersome titleblock manager. FIX ME!

  4. I frequently have drawings with 150-200 sheets. Using the titleblock manager and hitting <Prev Next> to scroll through the sheets is excruciating. There should be a pulldown to go directly to the titleblock you want.

    I've also noticed that once I get more than 50 sheets, the titleblock manager takes forever to open, so I tend to avoid using it.

  5. I'm having issues with the 2018 SP3 titleblock. I've create a field that is a pulldown and defined the choices, but when I go to use that field, it gives me a check mark next to a blank value. Editing the field shows the pop-up values, but they never appear in the titleblock. Anyone else having this issue?

  6. I have a wall style made up of several components. When I want to reshape the wall to fit the cathedral ceiling, the reshape tool only adjusts the siding component, not the whole wall. Similarly, if I use the "Fit walls to object"  walls with a horizontal top extend to the roof correctly, but for walls that slope, only the external component (siding or bricks) is extended.

    How do I resolve this?


  7. Is there a way to use worksheet/ reports to modify title block information? I often have files with 100+ sheets, and would like to have a way to modify title block information on specific sheets quickly. Using worksheets, I'm able to change values, but it's not updated on the drawing until I open and close the title block settings. Is there a way to force the update?

  8. We're using dropbox to host a project file, with the working files, xml files, and lightwright6 files saved locally. Every hour or so, vectorworks will quit. No hanging, no crash report, it simply quits. I've got the lighting layer checked out, an no one else is working on the lighting layer. Frequently, when restarted,  lightwright exchange is turned off, and I have to re-build the connection to the xml file.

    Any ideas?
