    Adding BIM to symbols in Vectorworks

    @Wes Gardner, I attached various Ifc data to light fixtures, plumbing fixtures etc. I created a report but it gives me a list of all items, How do I create reports per fixture types? Attached is the file and two images showing syntax in report. If I could get just a general syntax for light fixture and plumbing fixtures that would be great. See light fixture ifc data template I use but can't get proper syntax for Chaar Bathroom plans & int. elevations.vwx

    texture hatch all over the place

    I guess I was not clear on this question (thank you for answering though) I was meaning to ask how to add a hatch to a 3d extrusion so that it shows in a viewport with hidden line rendering type i.e. interior elevation (I assumed that a hatch associated to a texture would fit the bill, which it does). The other side of this question has to do with how to modify this hatch so that in the case of a tiled wall, can be set to a specific origin. It seems to me that this does not function properly in Mojave with VW 19.

    texture hatch all over the place

    I created a tile hatch and attached it to a texture to make an"RT" hatch which renders a hatch in hidden lines. I created a rectangle, extruded it and applied the texture to it. All of this works and it shows the hatch in hidden line rendering but I would like to start this hatch at a particular point on the floor. I tried to reshape the rectangle and moving it around to bring the center to the center of the room but when I resize the extrusion to match the room size the hatch jumps around and I loose my setup. Arrrgh Spending too much time on this, any suggestion? thx

    macOS Mojave (10.14) Compatibility

    I get that vector need to create updates regularly to sustain sales but it seems that all release now come with so much frustration and bugs that it may be wise to release less improvements but with better finished features and complete troubleshooting. It’s not fair to any of us who stand behind VW and have to spend countless hours frustrated and not able to respond to deadlines !

    macOS Mojave (10.14) Compatibility

    Please update (rush) the service pack for VW 2018 to work with Mojave, I installed it without knowing of the issues and nothing works properly. Arrgh When can we expect to see that?

    keynote legends are soo buggy

    the creation of keynotes and relation to their legend is less than satisfying. The created first keynote legend is not showing up and the the Note: is not linked to anything. I found a way around it by copying one that worked on a previous file and renaming it while relinking the keynotes to it. this is an issue with 2018 it seems. Please resolve this issue quickly this is very annoying. Thank you
  9. keynote legends have been a bane for me also. I just created a sample file with a keynote label. The IP refers the Keynote Legend as the Default Legend of which there is none. At the same time a "Note:" appears which as i understand it should be the legend for the keynotes but there is not note in there. My solution is this: Copy a keynote legend from a file where the connection worked before. Paste it to you desired file and link the keynotes to this legend. Rename the keynote legend to your liking Hope that helps

    Clip cube perspective viewport

    Ok, I figured what I was doing wrong. Did not follow your video properly, forgot to select the side of the clip cube prior to creating the viewport on the design layer. The other thing I noted is that the section attributes must be setup by class so that it takes the hatch that you want. Got it now. Thanks again for your help. Best CF

    Clip cube perspective viewport

    @markdd Thanks for the offer, I think its a setup issue and will get with VW on this, no emergency. On the other hand, how do you setup the clip cube, red fil to the hatch you have on your section?
