    bow bay window

    Is it possible to have a bow bay window plug in as the window Settings doesn't seem to offer this option yet it's very common in the UK?

    wall components at openings

    Thanks, it’s all done, it would be good to be able to control the thickness of the components and add cavity closing insulation but this is s step forward.

    wall components at openings

    Is it possible to finish wall openings properly by making the external render and internal plaster wrap around the reveals into the window or door frame? Also can insulated cavity closers be shown?

    Wacom tablet?

    Thanks, all for your views, it sounds like there is no real advantage in using a tablet so I'll stick to my Logitech ergonomic mouse.

    Wacom tablet?

    Hi, is anyone out there using a Wacom tablet for drawing in Vectorworks and would you recommend it as being better than using a mouse?

    My wish: VW2019 to have no new features. Please.

    Thank you for highlighting Christian's Wiki, we've been asking for a custom door tool that can draw multi leaf bifold doors now and an easy to use stair tool for so many years now that I'll probably retire before it happens...

    Stair down label

    flipping the stairs sometimes sorts this out. It's well past time that we had a new stair tool!

    how to inset sliding box sash windows set into wall

    Hi, yes I know about offsetting the window in the wall but are you sure that yours is rebated into the wall from inside the building? No I don't think there is an option for horns although there should be as even upvc sliding box sash windows have curved horns.
  9. Victorian sliding sash windows are neatly rebated into the wall from the room side. I can draw the splayed reveals fine but is there a way to show the jambs rebated in the walls?

    Circular Insulation Tool - oh I wish

    We are still on VW2016. Did the round wall batt start for 2017 or 2018? I just drew the attached using walls like you, interestingly I then added a length of insulation batt but it didn't push the file size up that much, not sure what a curved one would be like though.

    Serial Number Swap

    I think it should work as long as only one computer is in use at one time, or VW is only open on one computer, it can be a pain though if you forget to quit on one before leaving the office. I bought an additiuonal licence for remote working away from the office to get around it.

    is that a wall Christian?

    Circular Insulation Tool - oh I wish

    If you mean insulation batt then that would not really work, due to complexity/distortion/file size, we use the default Component Insulation Fibre hatch so in your case you could just show a ring of insulation around your pipe and use that hatch, I'm not sure where it's located though but we have it saved in the Resources palette, it's probably in the Vectorworks Architect workspace. You could make the insulation ring as a symbol and have different sizes perhaps?
