  1. 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

    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

    File crashes VW19

    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

    File crashes VW19

    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.
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. Hi I am busy updating our title block in VW18. Our title block has a revision number next to the drawing number. Rather than update this manually each time I would like it to be update along the actual revision data. Problem is the number keeps mounting upwards. We could limit the visible revision data to 1 but then we cannot show a record of the revisions. Is there a way to have a separate revision number update automatically but not move location/ duplicate itself upwards? Make sense? Many thanks Paul
  12. Hi All I am in the initial stages of putting the Structural engineers details into my BIM model. I am trying to add a BSI universal column using the Framing member tool but it doesn't appear as an option. If I create it using the 'Column' tool the BSI UC option appears as a structural shape. Is this an error? should it appear in the framing member tool too? Further, are there benefits in using the 'framing members' tool over the 'column' tool for columns. thanks in advance Paul
  13. I had the same problem and ended up having to build the existing in one file first then duplicate the file and edit it for proposed. Would be good to fix this in the future. paul
  14. Thanks Zoomer. I can't see why this shouldn't export. It will be a pretty useless tool if we can't exchange information with other consultants. Paul
