  1. Lighting Device 3D Rotation Troubles

    I share files with a freelance LD (who is also on 2018, and we've been on the same SP's when working together) and he has said in files that originate from me, he is unable to 3D rotate a lighting device to be a floor fixture. I simply do the below and it works fine for me. And when he originates a document he can rotate them this way too, but not one from me. Just curious if anyone has any ideas.
  2. Hi I noticed another bug in 2018 SP 3 on windows 10. If you use the eyedropper tool to copy the properties of one dimension to another, it does not carry the witness line override settings. does anyone have this issue as well? OSX ?
  3. This happens randomly. Sometimes the line representing the top of the door is there, sometimes isn't. Any ideas? I have to draw the lines by hand, for the council would wonder.
  4. Is anyone else having issues with the class drop down menu not scrolling in windows 10 vw 2018 SP3? I have tons of class definitons that I use and it can't scroll past what is visible.
  5. Arrow Issues in 2018 SP3

    I'm having issues with markers in 2018 SP3 on Windows 10. In old versions, markers drew perpendicular to tangent of the line they were marking at the REAR of the arrow (IE, how you would expect an arrow to be drawn. In 2018 SP3, the behavior has changed and now draws perpendicular to the tangent at the NOSE of the arrow, resulting (especially when using the freehand tool) for the arrow head to be misaligned badly (ie, having the arrow hanging off the line by its nose.) Anyone else having this issue? is there a workaround?
  6. Hi, Maybe there is a way to do this, but: Often SLVP's display several designs layers. Currently, the right-mouse-click option "edit design layer" picks one the design layers, according to some unclear logic. It's impossible or difficult to choose a certain design layer for editing using this method. Perhaps a selection menu like with "select coincident objects" tool has?
  7. My dropbox folder is on an external raid array, I am unsure how to tell cloud services where my dropbox folder is as I can't find a setting that allows that. Anyone?
  8. Hi, I'm encountering the following issue: Drawing elements (lines, polylines, text etc) won't stay in front of walls and stairs. They always eventually go behind them "automatically". Sending them to front remedies the situation for some time. After a week of working or so the lines are again behind the walls. Everything is drawn on layer plane on the same design layer. This is a nuisance since eg. my fire compartment markings will become hidden. It's especially annoying if one doesn't notice this when issuing drawings. Is there a control somewhere I'm not aware of that would remedy the situation?
  9. Hi, There is maddening default setting in the title block editing window : When adding revisions to a sheet, the default setting is add to "All active sheets"! WHY not "this sheet only" by default? I've ended up adding wrong revisions to dozens of sheets and then having to pick them off one by one. And, for some reason, the title block doesn't update until one double clicks it - meaning the accidentally added revision is not visible, if you don't edit the title block.
  10. When I attempt to start VWx Remote Server, the application stops working and closes. (Even after a system restart) I'm running Designer 2018 Build 401138 on a Windows machine. Is anyone else having this issue?
  11. Hi all, I'm encountering the following: The options for textures intermittently disappear from walls. Sometimes they are there, sometimes not. There have been no changes made to the wall style. As I mentioned in a previous post, there is an issue with the world z not affecting the surface hatch, as well. Any ideas?
  12. Hi, I'm encountering zoom issues with a floating viewport. Previously this worked fine. Please see attached. I can't see my grade objects unless I zoom way back.
  13. Hi, I wonder what I'm doing wrong: I have two walls on different design layers with different elevations/heights. Previously, surface hatches have aligned nicely if "use world z for origin" has been checked. Now, it doesn't have any effect on the hatch. What might be overriding the setting?
  14. Hi all, I wonder if anyone else is experiencing this issue. While dimensioning walls, we encounter these strange orange double lines. They seem to be some kind of display artefacts, since nothing can be found where they are. Screenshots attached.
  15. Hi, I have a 2018 Designer License with Renderworks for sale. I purchased it from Vectorworks on 11/27/17 and realized I won't be using it and would like to sell it. I spoke with the account rep today and it just requires a transfer form to be filled out and turned in to the company. Make me an offer worthwhile. I will update this post once it's sold. UPDATE: THIS HAS BEEN SOLD
  16. 2018 Fundamentals - When using various tools - tabbing into the floating data bar does not work. I also have 2017 Fundamentals installed on the same machine and it works fine. I do not know the settings for activating the Tab to floating data bar functionality. Can someone set me straight?
  17. Hi all, I'll post this as a separate thread since this has nothing to do with Mac-related graphics card issues discussed in another thread. We're encountering pretty maddening issues with screen updates in VW 2018. Please see the attached images. In a nutshell: 1) A door is moved to another location in a wall. 2) You can't see that the door has moved to the new location. It still appears in the original place. 3) If you do a mouseover on the new location, you can see the outline of the door. You can still see the door in the old location, as well. 4) When you zoom in/out a bit, the screen is updated properly and the old door disappears and the new one appears. We've encountered this problem with walls, too - sometimes when you draw a wall, it's not visible before you zoom in/out. I've tried every possible setting in the graphics options - no difference. Sometimes the issue goes away for a while and sometimes it appears again, which makes it even harder to track. We can replicate this on all different pc setups, so it's not likely to be a graphics card problem. We use cards from Quadros to GF 1050Ti's to laptop cards. No difference. We've tried to update all drivers on all machines. No help there either. From here on, we will adopt a policy of updating to a newer VW version only after the 5th service pack has been published. It's simply not possible to update before since the initial releases are, politely put, betas. For 2019, please fix doors, windows, stairs, overall quality and stability. I'll send you flowers and chocolate to HQ if you do that.
  18. Since I installed VW 2018 Service pack 2, I am unable to run VW on a second monitor - I have two different monitors I have tried this on. My old copy of 2017 still works fine on both monitors. I reinstalled Service Pack 2 but that didn't help. The menus look fine although I think they are not running native resolution on my 4k monitor. Anything in the drawing window is messed up and untouchable. When I grab the top and move VW back to screen 1 it works fine. Then when I move it back it stops working. All other programs including Photoshop and Sketchup work fine on the second monitor. The screen shot shows the drawing window in which current drawing is partially opened in duplicate - this is typical. hardware is super powerful - new Xi laptop with GeForce 1070.
  19. Having issues exporting an ifc file. Everything converts and exports as it should, yet it takes 45mins plus for it to process and complete. File size, after purging is 370mb approx. Stories all set up correctly, for each of the 16 stories. Set in plan/top view when exporting, 3D conversion is "low" and most settings are as per the Vectorworks "Sharing your model with IFC" Document. Really is poor, as it means that no drawing work can be done until after the export. ArchiCAD users in the office export larger buildings than this in under a min in work. Any further tips? or is this standard for VW? You can see from the attached image, there is not a lot of detail in the model. Also attached is my computer specs. Its a top of the range iMac
  20. I've run into a problem where I am unable to set Renderworks textures to "Receive Shadows" - the setting unchecks itself after I finish editing. This is pretty much a deal-breaker for a functional renderer - has anybody run into this, and found a workaround? I've also been having problems being unable to set bump textures in the Resource Manager.
  21. Good Morning, All - After struggling yesterday after switching from 2016 to 2018 I'm in need of some help. The title blocks threw me through a loop but I've gotten that all squared away. Trouble now is trying to add a simple field of "Revised By" into the revision data section of the sheet border. Could someone walk me through this? I'm hoping I'm missing something simple but can't seem to figure it out! Much appreciated! J
  22. 2018 PDF Export Text Unreadable

    Surprise Surprise... upon exporting a PDF using 2018 Service Pack 2. The text is now totally Unreadable. I checked the Raster Text option and it looks like my text has been written with a crayon. Anyone else experiencing this issue and whats the fix?? Here's a screengrab of in-program view and exported PDF view. Here's the exported PDF
  23. A user has asked me how to set the height of the 'First Person' when in the Web View models exported by Vectorworks 2018. There are some rafters he can't get past in a loft of some sort. When exported from 2017 the menu icon (3 horizontal bars) enables one to set the height but this isn't available in 2018. The starting position/height of the initial view doesn't affect the First Person height, because as soon as you drop that little man down, he assumes a pre-determined height of between 1.5 & 1.8 meters. Can we please bring back the 'Set Height' controls?
  24. Hi All, Hoping this is a straightforwards issue somebody can help me with. Trying to add new 'Issue' numbers to some sheets. I go in through the 'Title Block Manager', open the 'Issue Data' tab, and hit 'Add'. Good so far. I want to apply this issue data to several sheets in the file, but not all sheets. The options in the drop down list are: This Sheet Only All Active Sheets All Sheets Selected Files I think where I am missing something, is I'm not sure what 'Active Sheets' are. How do I choose which sheets are active? P.S. A personal frustration with this - please don't default it to 'All Sheets'! I have frequently intended to add to a couple of sheets, but accidentally left the defualt 'All Sheets' after already doing a couple of sheets - then ended up having to start again.
  25. 4-16 rebounds problems

    hello everyone, I have already tried to see in a test render file how the new 2018 renderworks engine work. I also noticed that in the Indirect Light options Vectorworks now allows setting16 rebounds. But not 8. So I'm in a little Trouble, because: -with 4 rebounds I see some circle on textures (not very good to see) - with 16 rebounds there are too many reflections and the results are not how I expect. Here is an area with no light or similar, but it looks in 16 rebounds mode like an overpowered light (see the arrows) Can I fix this? PS: the pictures are in low res (50 dpi)
