  1. Thank you both for your quick response! The texture tool worked, although the process was tedious and took a lot longer because of all the beach balling. I run a decent speed Mac Pro, but wow... couldn't believe I spent so much time just on this one thing.
  2. In previous versions of VW, I could covert text to polylines, extrude and apply a different texture to the front, back and sides. This allowed me to easily create channel letter signage on buildings. VW2022 only allows on texture for the entire extrude, making it impossible to to create this same effect.
  3. I doubt you’ll see a Mac Pro this year. My guess is that it’ll be unveiled at WWDC in 2022. We’ll probably see a MacBook Pro with 4 nm M2 processor late this year, and if we are lucky, an iMac Pro to go with it.
  4. The M1 Macs are just slightly faster than my Late-2013 Mac Pro (trash can), so I'm waiting until they release a 4 nm M2 Mac before I buy a new computer. Its good that my 7-year old Mac still runs great, but I'm looking forward to a Late-2021 iMac Pro or a Mid-2022 Mac Pro.
  5. I'm using Vectorworks 2021 on Mac OS Big Sur. I'm imported a Kohler sink and an American Standard faucet from the Vectorworks Library, but the symbol is invisible in 3D. I can see it in wireframe and hidden line, but it can't be seen in OpenGL or Renderworks. The faucet is even stranger, because some parts are visible and some aren't. All of them are generic solids. These are the symbols I've had a problem with so far. Sanitary Fixt Am Standard Faucets 4332.001 Sanitary Fixt Kohler Sink K-3943 Sanitary Fixt Kohler Sink K-3936 Sanitary Fixt Kohler Sink K-3821
  6. Enjoyed reading everyone’s comments/excitement about the new Apple Silicon Macs. I’m running a trash can late -2013 Mac Pro that is almost 7-years old. I too am anxious to upgrade my computer to these super fast Apple Silicon Macs. I am also excited to hear that VW2022 will run natively on the Apple Silicon processor. I expect an M2 and M1X processor next year along with all computers (except Mac Pro) to be updated. I hope I can last until 2022 when I expect a Mac Pro with M3 processor to be released. My computer will be 9-years old at that point but I think the Mac Pro will be really fast and worth the wait.
  7. @zoomer I'm not running MacOS Big Sur. I'm running MacOS 10.15.x Catalina which is over a year old. I'll look to see how I can note that in the bug report. Thanks.
  8. @Oliver Hauser I'm sorry, I don't know anything about Windows. I think this was a common problem when upgrading to MacOS Catalina because the OS was over zealous in removing things.
  9. When I submit a bug, it asks for my current OS, but the most current listed is MacOS 10.14.x. MacOS 10.15 was released over a year ago, but not listed. How do I submit a bug for the Bug Submit form?
  10. @Oliver Hauser @BenG The solution was posted by @Jeremy Best on March 3, 2019. I am reposting here for your reference: 1. Quit Vectorworks 2019 2. Go to: Macintosh HD/Library/Application Support/Vectorworks 2019 3. Select and copy these three folders: ⁃ Gobos ⁃ Library ⁃ textures 4. Go to: Macintosh HD/Applications/Vectorworks 2019/Vision and paste them in. 5. Reopen Vectorworks.
  11. The text of the section line is at an angle, but when I reverse direction, it is displayed correctly. It is displaying like this for some, but not for others. Very annoying. Can we get a fix to this?
  12. @Matt Overton This tip helped me soooooo much!
  13. Agreed! I can't believe such a commonly used tool has not been upgraded to a more flexible tool yet!
  14. Still not fixed?!? There are so many things wrong with this, I can't even...
  15. @Vasil Kitanov I found 2 refit files from a huge refrigeration manufacturer that don't import correctly in v2019. Can you confirm there is a problem with 2D and 3D View import? DefaultType.rfa DefaultType.rfa
  16. @Vasil Kitanov This was helpful, thank you. When I import as 2D and 3D Views, I am able to go to the sheet and see the 2D drawing. It comes in as an Annotation to a blank design layer that doesn't exist. I thought I couldn't edit it, when it turns out that if I choose to edit Annotation, the drawing is there. Lots of weird quirks, but it is good to know that I can make it work without 2017.
  17. @JuanP That was interesting to hear. I had been unsuccessful at importing almost any kitchen equipment manufacturer Revit models. So I did some tests to see if I was doing something wrong and this is what I found: 1. If I import as 2D and 3D Views, there would be nothing there. 2. If I import as 3D Model View, it worked. 3. If I import as a Revit (Batch), there would be nothing there. At least I know that I don't have to rely on 2017 now, especially since Mac is going 64-bit only soon. It would be nice to have the 2D and 3D drawing - so hopefully someone can figure this out. I've included 3 files so you can text this for yourself. Thanks!

  18. Revit import in 2019 still not working! Will 2017 be updated for Catalina support (64-bit)? 2017 was the last (only?) version that could import Revit files properly.
  19. I find VW2017 was that only version that properly imported Revit files. If you have access to that, import there, save as VWX and then open up in VW2019.
  20. @Vasil Kitanov Revit import still doesn't work after SP3. I tried to import this, and it didn't work. qf_advance_tabco_basics_bar_ice_bins_uni_serv_speed_bar_right.rfa
  21. @SVA Architects I have the old late-2013 Mac Pro with AMD FirePro D300 2048 MB, 3.5 GHz 6-Core Intel Xeon E5 and 64 GB 1866 MHz DDR3. Do you think these specs are still sufficient? This thing is 5-years old but still seems to work great...
  22. So is it finally safe for me to upgrade to Mojave?
  23. I FIGURED IT OUT! When you save the wall, you have to have Replace IFC Data checked. Thank you to @Pat Stanford and @Markvl for spending your time trying to help me.
  24. @Markvl If I uncheck IfcWallStandardCase, the text in the Description box is deleted. If I uncheck Pset_WallCommon, the text in the Mark box is deleted. When I retype them, the items are checked again. Looking at IfcWallStandardCase > Description, it shows what I typed into the Description box. But that still isn't what appears on the schedule (most of the time). Also, if I don't summarize the Mark column, I find that the same wall can show multiple Descriptions. Some of which are the actual description I typed in!
