  1. Hi! Is it possible to have different line weights in the snap to grid, lines? I see you can have a snap grid and reference grid - Is there any way these can be made visible at the same time? When creating ConnectCAD schematics for example. I have a 4x4 unit snap grid but I like to space may components out on say a 8 unit grid. The 16x616 grid just needs to be shown in a slightly heavier line weight. In AutoCAD I think they refer to this as a 'major' grid line. @Conrad Preenbeing able to 'force' snapping of ConnectCAD devices to the major grid would be a handy feature to speed the laying out of devices uniformly (horizontally primarily, not so sure about vertical though! Thanks, R
  2. I have a bunch of floor plans that are a different scale to my original Grid Lines layer, so when I turn on Grid Lines for those viewports the Grid Lines are not where I want them to be. Is there a way to transfer the lengths of Grid Lines and positions of bubbles across viewports? Or do I have to manually drag every single one on them on every viewport?
  3. How do you control instance visibility of Grid Lines in a Workgroup Reference file (using Layer Import mode)? The Help files don't mention this scenario: https://app-help.vectorworks.net/2021/eng/VW2021_Guide/Annotation/Grid_line_instance_visibility_in_viewports.htm Seems to me the only way is to create a design layer in the WGR file and add the Grid Lines to that (rather than referencing them from the model file). Not the end of the world but a bit of a pain because then I have two sets of Grid Lines I need to keep up to date.
