  1. When I export a VW file as a DWG file and open it in ACAD all the dimension text has a frame around them, when printed. The frame does not show up when viewed on the ACAD screen. They also show up when you do a print preview. Can anyone tell me what the problem is, and what the fix may be?
  2. I have an AutoCAD file of a DTM, with 3D polylines, in a DXF format. I would like to import it into VectorWorks and generate a 3D Site Mode. Is this possible? If so what is the process?

  4. Thanks Katie, Your sugestion was very helpful. I have now been abel to successfully generate a Model. It is nice to get some good professional help without a lot of sarcasm.
  5. I read the section in the User?s Guide that you referenced. I had read it before but I though I had missed something. I imported the DXF Contour file as source data. From the pull down menu I selected AEC > Site Model. I got the following dialog box Error: There isn?t enough valid data on the specified source layer to build a DTM. It appears that I am only getting 2D information. The file has been used in the past to build a DTM in other software ( MacRoad now HighRoad).
  6. I have VectorWorks Architect 10.1.
  7. I have a DXF 3D polyline file. Created in AutoCadd, of a 64 acre plot. I would like to generate a Model in Victorworks 10.1 running on a Mac duel 1 gig G4, running OS 10.2.6. What is the process to generate a Model from import to Model compleation?
  8. Anyone have any thoughts or experience using HP Design 120 with VW 10 and MacOS 10? If you are using this set up are you using the HP drivers?

  12. Thanks to all . I upgraded to 9.5.3 an it solved my problem.
  13. mike46 I have done what you said and the text tool is still locked on color white. I think it might have something to do with classes. When it comes to classed I am lost.
  14. I am a new user to VW and I am having a problem with the text default. When I select the text tool and type a text and enter it there is not text visable. I can change the text to colored and it showes up. Whin I try to change the text defalt to black it will not change and keeps giving me white text . Anyone have any sugestions. Thanks
  15. I have a drawing that I am working and the attribures are locked. I have looked at every preference that I can find and I can't unlock them. I can change the values in the attribute pallet, but when I select a new tool it still has the old values. I can work around this by selecting the object and changing the attributes but this not the way VW is to work. I sure could use some help.
