    VW 2015 Curtain Walls

    You can also use the Edit Curtain Wall tool and choose edit panels from the toolbar. Then select a panel and use the context menu. There will be two options to insert a door or window directly into the selected panel. This will save the step of having to check the Curtain Wall object setting.

    plant database bug?

    I just checked. The convert to metric command is working, most of the time. Look closer at your plant lists. Many of the records will convert correctly. The problem with this commands is: there was no really good way to do this conversion. The database simply checks the value and has a mapped list of corresponding ones. If the match is not exact, no conversion takes place. You best bet for records that did not convert to your satisfaction is to do a find operation on them and change those yourself. You can do this with the Records | Replace Field Contents command. I will look into possibilities of refining the search and match for the next version, but no promises.

    render door

    When the choose class control says , then the class assigned to the door itself will be used for that part. If you wish to assign specific classes to the various parts of the door, then you will need to create them, or choose from one of the existing classes.

    Door object: door leaf data field?

    The Leaf Width is i nthe field DoorWidth and the Leaf Height is in the field DoorHeight. Note that there are no spaces in the field names.

    Print entire plant book

    After doing your Find operation and you have the set of plants that you would like to print, switch to preview mode. That will show you how your print job will look. Then, from the print dialog, the top of the dialog has a pop-up menu called Print. Choose "Records being browsed". This will print your entire found set of records.

    Window Tool Problems

    Hi Lee, If you could attach the Vectorworks file it would help in trying to track this down. Thanks,

    How do i get rid of the dreaded 'sills' class?

    Vectorworks 2012 allows you to customize the classes that will be used for all 2D visibility purposes. If you are using a version earlier than 2012, the classes listed only control 3D objects. 'Sills' was hard coded and could not be changed. The same was true for 'NonPlot' and 'Ceiling-Main'. All these classes are exposed for you to change in VW 2012.

    Uh oh! Shim Gap Space in VW2012 Elevations...

    This is done by design. The Show Shim Gap button only controls the Top/Plan visibility of the gap. That's why the check is labeled "Show Shim Gap in Plan" It is always shown in 3D views. This way the hole in the wall exactly matches the specification given - the object's overall width plus the shim gap.

    Edit user defined field in the Window and Door PIO?

    Look in your Plug-Ins\Common\Data folder for a file named "DoorPreferences.xml" or "WindowPreferences.xml" You should copy this file over to your user folder. In this file you are able to rename the User Fields. You are not able to change the type though.

    window 2d/3d

    The component wrapping for the door and window tools currently only shows in 2D. Splays do show in 3D. Not so much a bug but a limitation, one that is known. Please feel free to submit an enhancement request as opposed to a bug report.

    VW 2012 can't insert window or door into wall

    If you copied over your 2011 (or earlier) workspace files to your 2012 install, then this behavior will occur. There were some internal updates to the door and window tools that cause this. Deleting and re-adding the tool as described fixes the problem.

    Window Trim in Plan

    You are correct...in the dialog the view is different. Things like sills, trim and shutters are dependent on the wall to determine their interior and exterior. When there is no wall, the concept of interior losses most of its meaning, so determining how to draw it becomes confusing. The dialog preview has been this way for a while.

    Overhead door line in 2D view: How to hide?

    The Overhead Line is placed in the Ceiling-Overhead class. Hide this class and the line should no longer be visible.

    Window Trim in Plan

    The Sill, in the terminology of the window tool, is always on the exterior. The part that is on the interior is referred to as the Stool. Try playing with the Sill Lip, Keep, Depth and Height values and you make be able to achieve the look you are going for.

    Opaque Sills & Thresholds?

    Unfortunately, there is no real way to fix this in 2011 short of covering it up yourself. But I can confirm that this issue has been resolved in 2012. Please see my post at http://techboard.vectorworks.net/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=160098#Post160098 for a complete listing of Door and Window improvements for Vectorworks 2012.
