  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. @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?
  5. I don’t know about a script but you can program a right click menu to update VP
  6. @markdd yes I do that and that’s when I realize the clipping disappeared. I will call VW Monday and will let you know how we resolve this. Thank you
  7. @markdd mark I can’t seem to make it stick in my viewport, the view has no clip cube in it @markdd
  8. @ericjhberg This is the way I tend to do things also. On another topic, the annotations to inform the plans, sections etc.. and also dimensions (associated to walls in DL but not in VP) Do you add these annotations to the VP or the design layers? Lastly, does it make sense to create a model, reference it in single files for each sheet or like I do, keep it all in the same file? I know it's a long discussion, but the separate model is the setup used by Nick Sonder in Sketchup. Would that save memory, overall improve efficiency ?
  9. Is there a way to create a viewport with a 3D view with a clip cube cutting throught the model. It seems as if the clip cube disappears with the switch of the clip cube being off . In other word, I am not trying to create a section view but a 3D view with clipped parts using the clip cube and keep the viewport setup for the clip cube ON whether or not the general setting for the clip cube is ON or OFF in the design layer later on. Hope that makes sense. Thanks CF
  10. Ok, back to the discussion of modeling workflow, my question has to do with at what point do you stop modeling in 3D and you start entering information into your viewports? Do you draw the roof rafters or just the roof cavity and details on top in the VP? Do you model walls with sheathing, insulation, siding and drywall or just framing and then add details as needed to inform the sections?
  11. Residential architect looking for help with construction drawings. Experience with wood construction, renovation mostly. Please send drawings and rate. Thank you
  12. autodesk revit has the ability to add labels to almost all items, VW should develop this to stay competitive in CDs development
  13. It would be great to be able to create a label with the information from the american woodworking association standards, maybe this topic should be a functinality request
  14. Any update on this topic, I personaly have to compete against a designer who uses autodesk and offers VR with oculus to his clients. I need to get in that game and offer this also especially since I have been working only in 3D for the last few years and I am really getting impatient and excited to offer this. The previous post is date 2016, has there been workflow improvement with VW since then? Please advise
  15. Is this possible to create an ID Label for cabinets ? I would like to have this label pull out the name of each cabinet and be able to insert it on the elevation. What would be the process?
  16. here is my file, now the Open command does not select any file to open... 171009_Oak_Tree_Proposed_Master-Backup-20171204102715.vwx
  17. it has been going on and on since i installed the latest version , VW18 sp2, imac osX high sierra trying to reach tech support on the phone right now
  18. OMG five times already this moring the application hangs up, spinning ball , so frustrated, it happens again and again, please fix this new VW18 version, UNACCEPTABLE, sorry
  19. I just found that the automatic backup on my time machine (mac) seems to be preventing VW from opening normally. Once I stoped this backup process VW started right away. Still takes some time but much faster.
  20. Why does it take sooooooo long to get VW started, literaly 5mn. This is sooooooo frustrating.
  21. Hi, just starting to look at marionette. I want to draw a rectangle, simple, right? not for me, I can't get the script to draw anything, please help
  22. Here is a file with the line weights that I created to see how they would render in printed form. Inclues PlanGfx classes. Hope that helps CF line thicknesses.vwx
