    Vectorworks 2019 text input slow

    It's really frustrating now with the time delay in entering text, I want to move back to VW2016.

    window sill and glazing bar glitches

    I've known about Windoor for years it looks amazing, I just don't know why Vectorworks don't include this functionality even after all this time. C'mon now Nemetschek please sort it out.

    Vectorworks 2019 text input slow

    I recently upgraded to VWD 2019 and am experiencing problems entering text. For example when publishing I get prompted to enter a file name, the input box then sort of freezes for a few seconds before I can enter any text, after that the box prompts to enter a location for the PDFs created, again the same thing happens. This evening I was really frustrated when trying to enter text on the design layer as there is an awful lag between pressing the keyboard character key and it appearing on screen, once or twice the character entered disappeared. Has anyone else experienced this?

    We can but live in hope, but time is finite. I'll post about the crappy door tool separately!

    window sill and glazing bar glitches

    I've tried various settings of the sill, you can get it to extend correctly as yours shows in the wall but if you pull it out then it all goes to pot no matter what you do. It's almost as if there is some association between the sill and the wall. Can we get this looked at as a priority please because after so many pricey upgrades to have something so basic still not working is not good?

    Hmm, odd.The sill appears on the brick side same but if you pull it out of the wall the sill flips, the Settings screenshot also shows this.

    The sill is not quite right on that Wes as the lip appears to be on the opposite side of the opening casements. Could it be the case that US windows open into the building?

    I've tried using a wall style from Vectorworks Wes but the result is the same- the sill is floating in mid air. Would you post your sill settings please?

    Yes that all works fine also!

    See attached Wes, as you can see the window elevations are not correct either. Is there a good tutorial on windows and doors and setting up a basic building shell? windows.vwx

    window sill and glazing bar glitches

    I'm in VW2019, I've modelled a nice window but can't get the sill to sit underneath it. I've even taken the settings off a window with a perfect sill but it doesn't work on teh new window as the sill is offset to one side. I tried modifying a copy of the good window but then the glazing bars don't show up. I've tried restarting Vectorworks but it doesn't help. Does anyone know what is going on here?

    Vectorworks 2016 and Mojave

    I run Vectorworks 2016 and it's fine. My Macbook Pro was stuck on Sierra, I wanted to upgrade it but it was listed in this forum that any MacOS higher than that won't support VW2016. For that reason I purchased the VW2019 upgrade this week then upgrades to Mojave 10.14.4. Upgrading VW together with a necessary purchase of £690 (+ VAT) VSS wasn't cheap. I'm finding so far that Mojave does support VW2016. Has anyone else tried it and found that it works ok? If it's not fully supported does anyone know why not exactly? If it works ok then I could upgrade the other Macs that run VW2016 to Mojave but I would like to be sure first hence the questions. Thanks.

    Create Roof. Fixed at last. Nearly.....?

    Hmm, it doesn't really do it though particularly if you need to show multi leaf bifods with 3D open doors

    pre apps for house extensions is largely an unporoductive and time wasting exercise so we rarely do it, we prefer to use our experience to advise clients what we think would be acceptable and then negotiate with the plkanners later if necessary
