  1. Also have this problem - as @Kevin McAllistermentioned above I believe it is a known problem (which I am really hoping will be fixed soon..). Causes a delay to getting on with it every morning!
  2. Thanks Matt.
  3. Hi All, To resurrect this slightly - Did 2018 introduce the Mark field we were hoping for? Or still using the workaround mentioned above..? Trying to put together a large door schedule for the first time and basically want to have a field which shows door 'style' for each door (I think this is what you are describing above). A
  4. P.S - Found a better image
  5. It would be great to have a standard door for use in disabled/accessible WC's. i.e. the UK Doc 'M' Standard (image of a typical Doc M wc below). It is massively useful to have the hardware shown on this type of door, mainly the pull bar. Helpful for determining clear opening widths etc. even from early stages. A
  6. @markdd Thanks for replying - Could you talk me through the steps to make this work? You've promoted me to revisited the custom selection tool and still can't seem to get it to select objects which are contained within a group (where to group has differing properties to the object contained within it).
  7. Hi All, Got one of those queries I feel will either have a simple answer, or be impossible.. I'm trying to locate all geometry on a certain class- Easy for the most part. However say I'm looking for an object in class 'X', but that object is in a group, which itself is in class 'Y' - How do I locate the class 'X' object in the group? Thanks A
  8. @gfp38- I can confirm we use a Mac only environment in our office, so mixing windows and OSX machines doesn't appear to the cause of the issue (in our case anyway).
  9. We also suffered from this issue recently - a colleague told me about it just after updated to SP2. I was convinced it must be something we had done - some sort of reference screwup changing between new and old referencing styles or some such - but we never worked it out. After reading these posts, I'm inclined to say it must be the same issue. Can it really be true that this has been occurring since 2013 and is still not resolved??
  10. Finally have info on our server: Synology DS412+ 8TB 4 Bay NAS Server
  11. Wow Thanks Pat, that is far and away the clearest explanation of the way Vectorworks deals with this kind of library information that I have seen to date! I think from what you have said that it is time to bite the bullet and get the practice into using a Workgroup.. @JimWI don't know if its possible to get this explanation stickied somewhere? Sure others may find it useful too.
  12. Hi All, Having a bit of an issue with Section Markers at the moment. Basically I would like to create some custom Section Markers for the practice (none of the default ones are appropriate for our use right now). I kind of hoped this would be as simple as duplicating a section marker in the files resource library, and then selecting this from the drop down menu. However it only seems to display markers which are present in Vectorworks Libraries - Default - Section Markers. Here they are, in all their glory: Now, my question is (and this probably displays my fundamental lack of understanding in how resources are managed in vwx) - If I go into this 'Section Markers.vwx' file, and add more symbols to it (i.e. duplicate SectMkr-1 with a new name and edit), will this work? - Should I touch any of the 'default' files with resources in - or is this a bad idea? - Will it work? - Will it show up in my drop down boxes when using Section Markers? - Will it work on my colleagues system? Also I know people have spoken about Workgroups in relation to this sort of thing before. I don't really understand what they are properly, or how they work. If anyone can point me to a good thread explaining the use of them, and whether a Workgroup folder would be useful in this instance, please shout out! Thanks, A
  13. Great, looking forwards to seeing if this has solved some of our project file sharing woes!
  14. Thanks for the update @JimW- Good to hear there is progress being made on this! I'll find out our tech info re. NAS
  15. Thanks for the Response Tolu. I'm glad to hear the bug will be picked up in SP2, thanks! I have also discovered the same issue occurs when moving items forwards or backwards, but again only when dealing with polygons. I imagine this problem is linked in some way to the 'trim' problem highlighted in my video above. It is interesting to get your perspective on the speed problems with the file/our network. I don't know much about our setup, but can confirm that it is a NAS setup with some sort of RAID configuration. Whilst not 100% rock solid (we get occasional issues with it), in most instances it is very fast and responsive - when not dealing with project sharing files, saves to files stored on the server are completed almost instantaneously, or in 1-2 seconds. So I find it unlikely that this issue is purely down to communication speed with our server.. it seems likely there is something in particular about Project Sharing Files which is causing difficulty. I notice @JMRalso mentioned a NAS setup with RAID above, most likely the same issue.
