  1. Thanks - when I follow your example seems to work fine! I wonder what I was doing previously then... perhaps I didn't have the first vertex mode selected. I 'll see if i can repeat the issue and follow up if I run into trouble again..
  2. Hi All, This ones been bugging me for years and I'm sure its very simple, but never worked it out. How do I edit handles for an existing curve? i.e. see screenshots attached, the handles only appear when the point is selected, so I can't select them. Thanks, A
  3. Great to hear! Still using 2019 at the moment, looking forwards to moving to 2020 when starting a new project.
  4. Well a promise is a promise! On a more practical side, here is a consolidated list of suggestions for anyone looking in the future (shout me if I missed any). Selection Tool (X) Double Click Paste in Place Escape (x2) to exit text editing etc. Move by Points Undo / Redo Open GL (and other render mode options) cmd-[ and cmd-] (previous and next layers etc.) Activate class Flyover mode Camera (top down plan, perspectives, etc.) Zoom to Objects / page area Toggle mode (left, right) Duplicate Array Select Similar Find and modify
  5. Good evening all - as promised! Thanks to you all for your tips (or pointers should I say), on using my mouse in a more effective way. I've tried them all out, there were quite a few, from move-by-points to flyover, activate and redo. Its hard to pick a winner, I'd like to use them all, I wish I had a bigger mouse, now it seems a bit too small. But It is @Taproots top tip, about group modes hencewith, that I'll be picking to keep when I'm through. Cycling selection types, wall junctions, polygons and end caps, Theres a lot you can do changing modes forth and back. You've saved my arm from making some unnecessary movements, thanks once again for your suggested improvements. A
  6. So I've just got around to reviewing the latest couple of posts on here. I must admit I am impressed with the breadth of ideas people have come up with. This is going to be trickier than I thought! Judgement delayed once more so I can test a couple of the newest suggestions..
  7. Hi All, Will give this a couple more days until Monday, but have been testing a couple of these today and possibly have a winner in mind ūüėČ
  8. Thanks for all the responses so far - Some good ideas, I can see I'm going to have to test a couple of them out (and might wish I had more buttons).. I'll wait until this time tomorrow before setting up a poll and/or announcing a winner!
  9. Throw down as many as you can be bothered to type! Ideally ones that you may already be using yourself and find time saving on a day to day basis..
  10. Hi All - Short and sweet for this one.. I have a new mouse with a couple of spare buttons. Any recommendations for the most useful Vectorworks commands or scripts to map to these buttons? Prize for the most useful answer/winner (I shall write you a poem) A
  11. @Kevin Allen the issue is that we have some 80-ish wall styles, and some of them look very similar. Its a very large project so at the scale they are shown on the page some of the wall styles are not clear which side is which. We have a lot of other layers of information on the pages to display too, so the pages are very busy. It doesn't help that the project incorporates areas of two seperate listed buildings (dating back to the 1800s), so we are coming across all sorts of existing walls we have to incorporate and no two are apparently the same! Thanks @Pat Stanford that looks like a workable solution, will give it a try!
  12. Hi @Kevin Allen Thanks for your suggestion - We do use a system like that, but unfortunately doesn't work in the scenario we're currently facing. We need to show graphically a difference between both sides of a wall style on plans; ideally with a mark of some kind. There is so much information on the page (hundreds of walls for a start) that what we really need is a little 'x' or mark on one side of every wall to show its orientation. @Pat Stanford Yes I was thinking something along these lines but not sure how to achieve it. Our GA plans are at 1:50 which is enough to show the various wall layers in the buildup (just about) but not clear enough to work out which side is which in some scenarios. I did consider adding another layer to the wall buildup on one side, perhaps with a very sparse hatch which would just show up as the occasional mark.. not ideal though I was hoping there is a hidden setting somewhere which would automate this process for me!
  13. Hi All, Is anyone aware of a quick, clear and easy way to display wall orientation on drawings? We have a set of about 20 GA plans, walls drawn using the wall tool and correctly set up with wall styles. The Contractor has asked us to show clearly on our plans which orientation the walls are in (for instance; a wall which looks in plan identical on both sides, but one side is moisture resistant plasterboard and the other is not). Any tips or workarounds also appreciated, anything that saves us going around and manually drawing a mark on the side of ever wall.. Thanks! A
  14. Thanks for your responses @Luka Stefanovic all good to hear! Particularly looking forwards to finding out more about the workflow for linking the NBS spec information - hopefully there will be some documentation/ seminars on this subject once released..?
  15. Hi All, 1- It would be great to have a plug-in/ module/ built in functionality, which would help us to calculate embodied carbon in our Vectorworks models. (Or by exporting our Vectorworks models/data from our models). For instance, Hawkins Brown have created a Revit plug-in to help with this. Is there a Vectorworks equivalent in the pipe-line? 2- As above, but for life cycle costing/ whole life carbon modelling 3- As above, but for linking Specification of materials to Vectorworks models 4- Further instruction and development of the Energos tool. Please also see my earlier related post (a bit more background info, and questioning what tools and workflows are already available..) Thanks! A
