  1. Yes I did by opening the file in 2021 but I was not able to have the styles part of the new file with the others which load automatically. I will fiddle with that a bit more. Style is great though. thanks for following up
  2. @Andy Broomell Andy, I downloaded the 202 renderwork style on your website, thank you. My question is how to make those available in 2021 resources
  3. I tried that but the resource is not available in a new 2021 file. I think the render works file need to be in the renderworks style folder of the 2021 library defaults and moving the 2020 style to that folder does not work.
  4. What is the process to migrate a 2020 renderworks style into 2021?
  5. @Matt Panzer Here is another simplified model for you to look at. When you open the drawing you will find selected, a ghosted piece of lumber, but this item and others will show up in wireframe mode. This ghosted lumber piece shows as a solid addition. When you open it and try to close it that there is a message indicating an impossible addition. This may be an issue but what about the other missing items, I have other files with entire parts of drawings showing the same (or rather not showing ). Could it be an issue with OpenGL rendering?Untitled 1.vwx
  6. If you are talking about topo, in sketchup at least when you download a google earth map view you get the rough topographical information (don't remember the height differences between curves, sorry), then you can import the topo into VW either as a 3D or just the topo curves. Works fairly well although it's a process. Good luck If you are talking about 3D buildings I think you can go through a similar process but if I remember correctly the buildings will come as 3D meshes which is less than ideal but that was 3yrs ago since I did that myself
  7. This happens on different files, this is not always the same process I go through but in both cases when I change views from VP to design layer or from floor plan to 3D open GL. Generally looking at 3D
  8. @Matt Panzer this is an ongoing issue with my latest 2021 drawings. Should I reinstall?
  9. I also found in previous file that grouping and ungrouping geometry will achieve the same fyi
  10. @michaelk yes I do see it in your file, thank you. How did this change?
  11. @Matt Panzer Matt, here is a simple file with a fridge provided by VW. It shows in plan but i no other views. Can you explain how to change that? Thank you SPACE PLANNING.vwx
  12. I think it is a good way to do that, it is pretty easy process
  13. How do I control the visibility of classes in a viewport directed to a design layer object which is a referenced drawing? I am not able to see the classes in that reference drawing. The alternative would be to go into the design layer and turn that class off by selecting the referenced item but I am wandering if I would loose that visibility in other viewports which refer to the same object. Maybe I could copy this reference to another layer and work from there; would that add a lot of memory to my file size? I am not sure what the best approach is, please advise . In the image below I would like to not see the plywood in the bracket detail
  14. I think this was resolved with 2020 but it is showing up in 2021. Is there a solution to these items formatting? The second line of text overlaps the symbol
  15. hmm, I probably lost those when i updated to 2021, will try again, thank you
  16. @Andy Broomell This does not seem to be working though, I do not see the new marker in following files, that would seem to be easily included in the vectorworks standards options
  17. I understand and I do that right now but it would be great not to have to look in a past drawing but to have it available in the list of markers.
  18. thank you for the new easy switch between the various spaces from the inside of a viewport, what a great enhancement !!! thank you
  19. my question is how do you keep an end marker type you create in previous drawing, maybe create a new standard
  20. Is there a way to setup a marker type (end of line) which you setup in previous file?
  21. How do you follow a particular member whom name you know?
  22. @Stéphane From Matt Panzer, kept in my assets, great video, bonne chance connecting roof in vectorworks.mp4
  23. Hello Steven i would love to help out. My work is mainly residential and my experience with VW started 20+ years ago. Feel free to call directly (845) 625-3189 I could start quickly. Regards christian Fekete Christian@cfekete.com
  24. @Sebastiaan Devos @Sebastiaan Devos Just spoke with tech at VW and we lowered the mesh of the imported geometry from Sketchup (symbol 3D edit, modify, simplify mesh by 75%) and we lowered the 2D conversion to low. It seems to make a difference. maybe you can try that, good luck
