  1. Rather than give you a generic error, it would be great for a tool tip to give you a suggestion. I recognize this is a lot of work but it would be very helpful. A good example is extruding a 3D polygon. If you try to extrude a 3D polygon using the Extrude command, Vectorworks could suggest "Try using Push / Pull or Tapered Extrude"
  2. For Create Objects From Shapes - the method for the offset is incredibly counter-intuitive. You have to think if the object is created clockwise around the polygon, and I want the object to be created on the INSIDE edge of the polygon, then I need to select Offset-->Right. If I want it create on the OUTSIDE edge of polygon, I need to select Offset-->Left. So I have to think about it like this: the created object will be on the right side of the polygon. Great! But... kind of unnecessarily confused? Wouldn't it make more sense to simply call the offsets literally "Inside" and "Outside"? Barring that, having a tool tip explaining what each Offset type is (I.e., "Selecting an offset of Right will put your created object to the right of the polygon edge, or on the inside edge of the polygon")
