  1. That is an interesting approach and observation. Fits the experience I have had with stairs coming into contact with walls and relocating unpredictably. Re the wall join problems, I sent a file to NNA about 6 weeks ago and have heard nothing. Since this takes time it would be good to know that the file was recieved and a report on the diagnosis or that a plan to fix the problem is scheduled for the next release.
  2. Built in to VW and called by that name. Not a 3rd party add on.
  3. Yes. Thanks for the excruciating desription of the process. I have had the same bug ridden time consuming experience to accomplish this simple task and it is time that the tool was fixed.
  4. Robert, again thanks for reponding. The tool is the offset tool on the 2D tool palette that has been in multiple versions of the program. While it has worked in ealier versions, when used to offset walls in v10.5.1 it fails to work and produces and error message. This was confirmed by tech support for v10.5.1 and v11 last week. Rod
  5. Thanks for responding. I am running 10.5.1 on XP pro fully updated. I ran a test creating a new drawing and the y-join worked. I ran a test on a drawing created in 10.1.2(??). I duplicated three wall segments with a solid color fill and "removed wall breaks" from the ends of the three lines. I selected the wall join tool, "t", and the walls highlighted but a message box said "the first wall will not intersect the second wall". I tried again. This time drawing the wall segments from scratch in another drawing created in 10.2.1 with no solid fill. Same reaction"the first wall will not intersect the second wall". At other times the walls come together but the solid fills don't join. It was the repeated experience of this type of failure that caused me to draw the above conclusion.
  6. I have 3 way wall join problems in 10.1-10.5.1. In 10.5.1 it sometimes leaves an open intersection. Worst problems are with non-perpendicular joins. Is there a work around?
  7. Right. It worked in 10.2. It was broken in vw 10.5 and has not been repaired. Please VW provide a quick fix for this important feature.
  8. IN v10.2 - 10.5.1, The 3 way wall join tool does not seem to work especially if the walls are not perpendicular. Is this under developement? Also the offset tool does not work for walls after v 10.2. please advise.
  9. Thanks for your comments. I am asking for something that provides ongoing onscreen feedback about the font size and type without having to break the train of thought- and without third party software.
  10. I admit, I dont know what "masking layer links" means. Please clarify.
  11. I am unhappily looking at lines in W2K VW that end in a bullnose rather than a crisp rectangles. This is greatly slowing my desision to upgrade to 10 and making the switch to Windows . Please fix this problem. Thanks
  12. Please add a font palette. This could be part of the graphics palette or at least a menue bar indication of the font and palette size in use. VW 10 CTR-SH-T is a great improvement but the information should be visible in advance of typing. Also the font palette should be able to be loaded with a set of 6-10 preferred fonts so that all 150 are not displayed when selecting fonts.
  13. I spoke to Epson today about the 1520 with OSX problem. According to them they have the drivers ready but OSX is not developed to actually print variable paper sizes for them or any other mfg. Beyond the hype can Apple can pull their act together ? I am on the fence on upgrading or switching to PC. Cheers
