  1. I am using VW2021.  I have inserted  unstyled doors into a model.  The glazing is not functioning correctly.   I have selected attributes to use class.  In settings I have selected classes, glazing to be clear glass.  However, the glazing is still solid as in a panel door?  If I replicate the process in a blank document, the glazing appears to work correctly.  Perhaps something in the model?  Any ideas?


  2. I am using VW2021.  I am working on a landscape plan.  I have created a number of Landscape Areas and would like to report area as specified on the plan.  I have the different type of landscape areas identified by class.  Individual areas have been given a name identifying each area.  The associated worksheet is not reporting all area?.  There are a number of landscape areas not calculated in the worksheet?  All areas are closed and have an area in the O.I.P.  Why is the worksheet not updating to report all areas?

    Thanks lm

  3. Pat,  I have have tried a number of options.  There are a number of exiting hardscape pads in place such a the residential front entrance pad.  I have tried a number of options and as you suggest editing for hardscape existing (tried existing and proposed) and new hardscape (existing and proposed ).  However,  the model is not updating as expected.  I would expect the site model to be set to the modified pad elevations as specified?  It is still a problem!

    Thanks for your input.

    cheers, lm

  4. I am working a a site design with slope.  I have created a site model and am developing a number of hardscape elements with the option slab modifier (top or bottom).  However, when I update the model I am not getting the results expected.  The site model is not conforming to the elevation constraints as specified.  I am not sure why?  Any suggestions?  Thanks,


  5. I am using VW2020 and Mac OS 10.15.4 Catalina.  I have a story wall set to 8'.  However it is only measuring 7' and I a not able to change it regardless of story bound setting in OIP?  Thanks, lm

  6. You make a very good point and I agree.   I wanted to adjust a contour on sloping terrain outside of a site modifier in order to increase accuracy.  I understand that the editing of contours is not an option at this time?  thanks

  7. VW2020  I am unable to edit exiting contours on a site model.  When I modify an existing contour the changes are not saved and the model reverts to prior to editing?  I try to move an existing contour or delete  a contour or portion and get the same results.  Why are the edit reversion not created?  Thanks 

  8. I am working on a planting plan with a Plant list with images VW2020.   I want to insert comments into the remarks column.  When I select from plant records comments 1 in the remarks column the information appears.  However the images in the image column disappear?  Help appreciated.  Thanks,


  9. I recently tried to migrate a number of notes from my user folder into a document.  I find that in vw2020 a dialogue box has been eliminated and I am not able to upload multiple notes at a time under a section as I could in vw2019.  It would appear that I have less autonomy with my data base notes in 2019.  Is there any way of uploading multiple notes in 2020 to a document?  Thanks,


  10. I have a 3 story residential structure in my project.  I also created a site model.  I want to place the residential structure on the site model at the correct elevation.  I am unable to use the send to surface command for the building.  Several of the design layers are locked? and will not respond to the command send to surface?  suggestions?  I am using VW2020


  11. Thanks.  I have played around with an additional Garage Story with corresponding design layers and levels.  However, I still can not seem to resolve the problem.I think that it should be straight forward? Thanks,


  12. I am working on a residential project with 3 stories.   Walls and slabs are bound as expected.  I however have a garage that sits between the first floor and the second floor.  I am having troubles with the elevations for the garage.  The garage walls are unpredictable and I cannot achieve an 8 foot wall.  I seem to have the wall either bound to a fist floor of second floor  and corresponding stories.  I have tried a number of things such as creating additional design layers etc.  Any suggestions?



  13. I found document options in the title block manager.  In this pane you can change the options for revisions as well as issue notes and can choose either manual or auto-increment options using either numbers or letters.  Very nice option...
