  1. until

    Was this recorded and available anywhere?
  2. that's an interesting work around. I shall give it a go but foresee it not being possible in some situations.
  3. If you are a Service Select member you can download example projects 'Courses' section. Probably best to start properly and get some training. It's not like the industry is moving back towards 2D. https://jonathanreeves-cad.co.uk . He has some really useful videos on YouTube. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC56qp6QeXSAayDOOHu3BcCA/videos?view_as=subscriber
  4. I create 3d models where the window (and doors) are not always placed in walls. I expect my window style to work in both situations, however the problem is that the sash keeps flipping sides between interior and exterior when placed in a wall verses just freestanding. In order to view 3d windows not in walls correctly, I have to create a new style that flips the internal sash colour with the exterior sash colour. however this problem exiting with the Louvre ruction as it flips as well so the angle is back to front. See my images - the blue colour is the exterior sash. The black colour is interior sash. It is correct when placed in a wall. This has been happening for years now and am getting really cheesed off with this bug. The same with the door. Why can’t I choose the handing of the door when its not in a wall? it opens inwards when freestanding but outwards when in a wall. Unless I want my internal and external door colours the same its still totally useless for 3d visualisations. Moan over. But if there is any advice to fix this please let me know.
  5. I am not upgrading to 2020 purely because I hate the new icon graphics. Soooooo chunky it make them harder differentiate each tool. It seems like the advice both is that you can choose your own... with a lot of hassle. PS. Can VW please hire someone with a graphic design skills to work on these icons for the next service pack upgrade?

    Ungroup issue

    sorry for delay, worked at treat. cheers Paul
  7. Hi All When ungrouping a while ago I quickly clicked on a button without looking probably and I can no longer ungroup anything. I can't get it to work with the shortcut or in the drop down menu. I can't seem to find anywhere to get it back working. Any help would be appreciated. best regards Paul
  8. Thanks for that. I think the graphic s issue is caused by the insulation batt tool. I have always found VW struggle to display it when is on a angle. cheers Paul
  9. Hi Nikolay, I have just DM the file however I think the problem is solved. I looked further down the trouble shooting forum and found this article I have changed my Display preferences to be ' Best Compatibility" and the file now opens and runs fine. I did recently update to SP3 so maybe its time to update the iMAC to a newer machine.
  10. I have a file that has started to crashe VW19 upon opening. I have tried opening the backup file with the same result. Is there a place to send the file so someone can try and rescue months worth of work. The project is on site next week so I really need this file to open. your s hopefully. Paul
  11. A little glitch but quite frustrating: I have set 3-4 viewports to render. They will take about 5 mins each. I have another file open and set about printing. I click the 'save to pdf' option and save the file. After clicking 'save' the Print dialogue box freezes on the screen locking out VW. Nothing in VW will work until the renders are finished. 20mins later...............put the kettle on. As I said its rare that i would be doing this but hopefully something to look into at HQ. best Paul
  12. I realised this was happening in all my applications so it was an Apple issue not VW. I Chatted to someone at Apple and we eventually found it was due to the epson printer drivers. There is a new Epson software update available, released 20th Nov 2017. (yesterday!!!) This didn't get downloaded automatically from apple with the High Sierra update. I would recommend anyone with Epson printers download the update. Thanks for you help in any case paul
  13. Hi, Art V This is happening when I do a physical print as well as pdf prints. Who can I ask to fix to this... is it apple or VW? Thanks Paul
  14. Hi all I am having an issue with the page set up since upgrading to the latest Mac OS , High Sierra. I have a sheet set up as A3 in landscape. I click print and press okay. VW then automatically jumps back to a portrait orientation and print also comes out as portrait. Same issue if I create a new blank file. Using VW18 SP1. Any ideas. Paul Ps. Does the same in VW17 SP4 pps. even does it when printing to PDF or preview pdf. This is a major problem!! I cannot issue any drawings
