  1. I updated to vectorworks 2020, and I can't find the Spotlight Numbering tool. I've done some searches online, but there is nothing about it. The AutoNumber tool is there, but when I select it nothing happens. I read somewhere about it being part of the legacy tool set, but I don't know how to find that either. Attached is a screenshot of my dropdown menu.
  2. Unified View and Rendering Progress Indication Question: What is the relationship with the Unified View option and the rendering indication. in VW / RW 2020? ie: The Tea Pot and the progress bar See the attached Having Unified View checked, when it is not needed has its own set of oddities. Suggestions? Peter Unified View and Rendering.mp4
  3. Hello! I have been having this issue lately in 2020 where whenever I export my lighting fixtures to grandMA2 Setup (XML) none of the fixtures will export their X or Y rotation but will take their Z rotation. I have tried a couple of things since this has been happening: - reinstalled the plug-in - reinstalled 2020 - exported to 2019 and tried it there (this worked) - changed the symbols that the lighting devices were referencing - started a new file in 2020 with default VWX lighting symbols, converted to lighting devices, rotated them, still no dice - e-mail support at ACT and they said that they were able to get it to work by reasserting the rotation for fixtures that already had it Out of ideas and any help and or ideas would be greatly appreciated, thank you! -Nick
  4. Hi all, was wondering if anyone could provide some help on how revisions and issues work with VW2020. I've got all of the text boxes etc in the title block and been looking through the title block manager but struggling to see how to actually input the data and create a revision. I have found the worksheet but again unsure how this works. Any help would the greatly appreciated! Thanks!
  5. I have not been able to edit a label legend in Spotlight 2020. I can add a field, but when I click Edit 2D layout, I get an error message: Script Error - Error on Lin-1: 2418_2421 - Index outside array limits. Any ideas on this?
  6. Has anyone else had issues with trying to assign "Alt + Shift + 'letter' " to a shortcut? For example: I want to assign "Alt+shift+x" to the function of "Hanging position". If I assign this combination in the Workspace editor it will only trigger as if you programmed it as "Alt + X" which will tab you into the "Text" menu. Same with "Alt+shift+V" it will only act as "Alt + V" which is the View menu. I'm creating functions this complex to work with the 3D connexion radial menus. Thoughts?
  7. I just asked this in another thread, but it might be worth a new one. I just updated to 2020 Architect, this morning, from 2019. I thought it had to do with a faulty installation, but I can open some files but not the one I needed to work on. It crashes while opening - it says 82% generating Resource previews, then it shuts down. repeatedly. I tried the suggestion in the other thread to set navigation graphics to "best compatibility", no luck. also, should I delete VW2019? my system: wdws 10pro - 1809 intel corei7-4770 cpu @3.40ghz 16.0 GB RAM 64bit os x-64-based processor thanks
  8. Hi All, I'm just wondering if anybody has been using 2020 and how they have been finding it compared to 2019 in reality of day to day working? Now that SP2 is out we are considering making the jump but have been bitten by this before (2019 pretty much only stopped crashing for us at SP4/5). Specifically: - Any frequent crashing or significant bugs? - Has anybody noticed any speed improvements/decreases on bread and butter operations? (drawing, panning, etc.) - Any of the new functionality/workflow changes which is saving you a lot of time? - Our office is still all on Mojave but how is the Catalina compatibility getting on? I know some of these items are probably picked up in other threads but I'm looking for a current snapshot based on SP2 and its hard to seperate out the issues on older threads.. Thanks!
  9. I am having issues opening old package renders in VW 2020 that were done using a swept path as a sticker to a surface. Please see PDF. Now any old file that had this technique to create a label on a surface has to redone. Is this a glitch or a permanent change to Vectorworks?
  10. Dear fellow VW enthusiasts! I made my own lighting instrument. It is a 2D and 3D symbol, with a default lable ledgend. I also attached lighting records to it. I can put them in my drawing and everything seems ok, i Even simplified the 3D object to the absolute minimum to keep it simple. When I try to duplicate 16 of them along a path VW2020 just shuts down. I tried duplicating just 1 symbol and that works, then I try a few more and no chance. Vectorworks doesnt even think about it. Just shuts down. Im using vw2020 and im on Mojave (Mac). How can I try to find out whats wrong? EDIT: Ive just tried inserting a default symbol from the VW2020 library. Same issue. What can it be? Is Catalina a better match with VW2020 than Mojave? Magnus
  11. I'm working on a plug-in that generates a lot of bitmaps from symbols. To make it more user friendly i'm using the previously generated bitmaps in the PIO as a cache, I do this by setting kObjXPropPreserveContents to True and only delete out-of-date objects at redraw. I tried using ForEachObjectInList starting at the PIO handle with deep traversal and start ignoring the callbacks once an object which does not have the PIO as parent. The problem with this method is that once my object is not the front most object in the document the ignored callbacks start stacking up, the more backward the PIO placement is the more processing time the plug-in needs. I'm now resorting to FInSymDef and NextObj, but NextObj never goes to None... so it feels like this is not the definitive method for what I need. Is there any other way to loop over ONLY the items in the group of the PIO that is really scoped to the PIO? And without having to check the parent of each of the looped objects 😉 [edit for more clarity] With kind regards, Jord Visser
  12. Why do the text labels on the stage tool set have the background fill not actually cover all of the text? Anyone else?
  13. Is there any way to turn this off or hide it? The information that displays is incorrect and does not seem to update in relation to my Service Select Information
  14. No matter what I do, symbols are exported as individual geometry. Anyone else?
  15. Attempted a render a DL of 2019 File, which opened easily. The beachball began almost immediately. I waited till it threw the error message. Now to restart machine…
  16. Reading through the Vw2020 Help File about New Features, I came across the following description under the section about ‘Architectural template and styles updates as a result of improved workflows’: http://app-help.vectorworks.net/2020/eng/VW2020_Guide/Structure/Workflow_Model_setup_with_stories.htm#XREF_78064_Model_setup_with Since this is a departure from the recommended workflow in previous Vw versions, I think a video tutorial explaining the changes to the recommended workflow is warranted. Thanks. [EDIT: As a side note- the hand-drawn sketch of the Levels / Stories diagram on that Help page is pretty low-resolution quality and looks like it was taken by a hand-held camera. As an architectural floor construction sketch, it doesn’t make any sense: What is the part at the lower left? Where are the foundations for the part on the right? Why are the two parts offset and separated? This sketch is more confusing than helpful. A better quality, more legible sketch would be welcome. In addition to a video tutorial. Thanks.]
  17. This will link to ALL system requirement articles for Vectorworks back to ~2008 with the most recent version residing at the top. What version of Vectorworks are you looking for?
