  1. I have a number of extrude along paths that are only visible in my sheet layer viewports, and not visible in the design layers. This makes editing them or deleting them impossible. Any ideas?
  2. We have a new issue, never encountered prior to VW2018. Currently we are having difficulty with Plant plug-in object visibilities...I've attached 2 screenshot videos (no narration, sorry) that show what we are encountering, but I will do my best to explain. We have (8) different classes we use to control the internal visibilities of our Plant objects. Currently, these classes are not responding to simple on/off/gray controls unless you go into each plant individually, after changing the visibilities, and then exiting the plant. Then and only then do they look correct. To make things worse, this error is compounded by the fact that as soon as one database worksheet plant schedule is recalculated, all of the active visibilities and buggy visibilities revert to a pre-altered state. I know this isn't the most clear description and I hope the screen captures do it more justice. Ultimately we need this fixed ASAP. This is a bad bug that affects our ability to produce any documents. Plant_Symbol_VW2018_Bugs.mp4 VW2018 Plant Bug 2.mp4
  3. Running VW 2018 SP1 on Mac. We have a few fonts (specifically DIN) that we use for our drawings that are becoming distorted when exported to PDF. The characters become squished to look tall and narrow with lots of space between each letter. This is occurring in all text including titleblocks as well as drawing labels. Changing to a system font seems to fix this (tested with Helvetica). Unfortunately our title block was really designed around the DIN font, so changing the font would require a complete redesign of our titleblock. The problem can be fixed by checking the "rasterize text" option in the export to PDF window, but this is really not ideal. The font was working perfectly for us in VW 2017 and prior. Anybody else with font issues in 2018? Any possible solutions?
  4. When trying to snap a motor via the red insertion guides to a beam in a drawing (see the vertical light blue line in the photo) even when my cursor snaps to the light blue beam (as pictured) the red insertion square does not line up with the beam, it's offset slightly to the left. So the hoist always inserts slightly off the beam. Is this a bug?
  5. Does anyone else run into accidently undocking palettes and not being able to re-dock them without restarting VW? It also seems way easier to inadvertently undock a palette than in previous releases.
  6. I was trying out using my multi-monitor set up with the new MultiView. If you create a floating pane, the class and Layer visibility drop-down in the OIP does not drop down.
  7. Good Day, 1) When creating a section viewport of a DLVP the objects not inside a symbol do not 'cut' and render with the selected 2D attributes. See the attached VW file and PDF. 2) When making changes to the layer with the objects, the changes are not reflected when updating the section VP unless you toggle on and off layers.

  8. Hi All, We're having a pretty serious problem with the space label tool right now, and I'm not sure if this is just affecting us or widespread. Basically, we set up multiple space label tags (in order to be read at difference scales - some show more or less information than others). For some reason the 'allow multiple space labels' box in advanced settings seems to keeps unticking itself. See vid below.. Any ideas?? Thanks, A
  9. When using the Existing Tree tool, somehow empty folders are created in the resource manager. Every edit, move, copy, tweak, etc. in an existing tree tool results in the creation of an empty resource manager folder. I am currently working on a project with 150+ existing tree tools and this resulted in the creation of over 200 empty folders?
  10. I have asked this question before and don't know if I ever got a response. so why not try again. When using the CREATE OBJECTS FROM SHAPES... command to convert any basic object into something else (doesn't matter what), there is a conversion of any accurately drafted arc and radius information from a point on arc mode to a bezier mode. See the attached image for comparison. This is a frustrating phenomena/bug for the many reasons noted, but most importantly for the loss in fidelity. Once an original object is converted, there is no way to restore the original arc fidelity. I have requested a fix for this before and feel that this should be dealt with ASAP.
  11. I have created a texture that represents a mesh with 25mm square holes. I have also created a hatch to go with the texture. I would like to be able to show the mesh in a variety of render styles including hidden and dashed hidden lines. Although textures and surface hatches are meant to lineup I can't make this one line up in any way without offsetting the surface hatch which is not the point of the lineup window in the surface hatch section of the texture. I have included my drawing and wondered if the forum hive could take a look and tell me what I am doing wrong! Is it the hatch that is wrong or the way that I have the Hatch Alignment settings? Or does the surface hatch alignment feature not work? Thanks Mesh.vwx
  12. Another one of those, try, try again until you succeed posts. I posted this awhile ago and included a video, to no avail or answer yet. When using the new irrigation tools, once a pipe is drawn and components are added to it, there is no way to rotate the graphic symbol other than to a true north. What is interesting is that the OIP will show a rotation angle even though the graphic symbol doesn't rotate. You can see the video for a better explanation (sorry, no voice over). https://screencast-o-matic.com/watch/cDX33GQh5g This is really annoying because we almost never get so lucky to work in a true north orientation and our best practice has always been to relate system components and their rotation to the line on which they are placed. It just adds graphic clarity. This problem is also true of any tags or labels that are created from an irrigation object. They cannot be rotated so as to appear horizontal on a sheet layer viewport. This is common practice and I don't understand why the usability hasn't been integrated. We have largely avoided the entire irrigation suite, and this problem is a large reason why. Fix please!
  13. Noticed that my lighting fixtures (spotlight - theatrical symbols - all custom) keep disappearing when I zoom. I thought maybe there was a scale discrepancy, but after checking that and checking to make sure that my class and layer options are all correct, I started futzing with the Fixture Mode dropdown. When I am able to select the fixtures, even if their fixture mode is already set to none, if I grab that dropdown menu and set them to none again, suddenly they don't disappear. This is true across the board, no matter what symbol or what fixture mode. Setting them to none makes them all stay. Edit: Day 2 - I have to do this once every time I open the file. And it seems that syncing with Lightwright also makes me have to do this again.

  14. Hi, I have my undo history set to 'Grouping All View Changes', which works well for the most part. However, in certain files this setting appears not to work properly.. if I navigate using shift+mouse scroll wheel (horizontal) or alt+mouse scroll wheel (vertical), it does not group these changes. What this essentially means is that I can't use this method of navigation without making my undo history useless! Again - this only seems to happen in certain files. Any idea what could be causing this? Perhaps I have some other setting enabled in the file which is overriding the group changes selection? Thanks!
  15. Hey Everybody (long time listener, first time caller), We've been using referenced viewports as for light plots with small changes between shows with quick turnarounds. It has worked fine for the past couple of years, and right at 2017 SP3 we started getting label legends that stacked all of the containers on the fixture. Ironically, the information pertaining to the container stayed in place. Anyone have any thoughts as to why this would happen? I'm pretty sure it's a SP3 problem, but I know SP3 added some features, I was curious if it added something that might cause this, or do we have to go back to SP2?
  16. Hi, We have been attempting to use the new data visualization tool, which clearly has the power to become very useful. However we are having some difficulties. Firstly, even using this tool in a basic way seems to cause extreme slowdown. Secondly (and more critically for us currently), the display for some areas seems to be buggy and 'stuck' on an incorrect hatch colour. Please take a look at the video below which shows the issues. The beginning of the video shows how quickly our systems handle navigation on a normal sheet without data visualization turned on. The second sheet shown is using simple data visualization to show space objects with various coloured hatches applied. You can see how much more slowly this sheet refreshes as zoomed or panned, which is infuriating to work with. But the area which is coming up as as a black hatch at most zoom levels is the most problematic. This type of issue has cropped up on a couple of our drawings, and is still present on pdf's if printed at this scale.
  17. Seems that in VW17, if you mirror a callout while in a rotated top/plan view, the mirror changes shape and position. In VW16, when I mirrored a callout in rotated top/plan the mirror would nehave exactly as if I had mirrored it in top/plan - that is to say, it would be oriented 90 degrees (or whatever angled I had mirrored it to) to the original. The only workaround I found so far is to change to top/plan and then mirror the callout. This results in a callout that is rotated incorrectly, but is at least the same shape. From there you just have to rotated it back to match the original. I did a quick search and didn't come up with any posts about this already, but im surprised nobody has flagged this one yet. I have been able to replicate the bug in new files and on multiple PC and Mac machines.
  18. After doing several viewport FQR updates. The screens and any texture that is assigned glow, seems to do this weird inverted thing color thing. This has happened in multiple files, fresh ones, and older ones. Anyone else run in to this? Is it a bug? Restarting VW fixes the problem for a handful more renders. Vectorworks 2017 SP2. Machine spec's in the screen shot below.
  19. Does anyone have any idea what causes this? It happens at random, in random drawings. You zoom in/out it'll go back to normal for a moment and pop back to something like the attached once you finish zooming. It seems to persist till VW is closed and restarted. Vectorworks Spotlight 2017 SP2
  20. When closing VWorks 2017 occasionally we will experience a crash, seeming right before the program closes. All open files are already saved and closed and we are just exiting the program...it crashes????? Seems odd.
  21. Been running into a few problems with symbols in 2017 I've never seen before: When I layer a normal 2D symbol on top of a lighting instrument, then zoom out, the stacking order gets messed up and the lighting instrument is on top. Double clicking a 2D symbol in the resource manager brings up the symbol selection tool, yet when I click to place the symbol, I get the error "A symbol needs to be selected." It can still be dragged from the resource manager to be placed, but this is inconvenient. I never encountered this issue in previous versions. Any help/insight much appreciated!
  22. Hello, when I resize the attribute palette ; it crop a part of the palette simultaneously as it resize the text and the boxes (seems to be proportional). then you have no access to the hidden part of the palette. I cannot scroll up or down. for example, I have reduced the size of the palette from the top ; then it has cropped a part of the top. and then I tried to increase the lowest part ; it just generated some white part bellow the palette. see picture joined. Is it linked to my config ? to Mac Os config ? to some config error in my VW config ? thanks PS I am using VW2017 on Mac OS 10.11.6.
  23. using VW17 w/ latest SP 1. when I render realistic exterior fast with edges option I get edges significantly offset from where they should be... this happened before the SP1 as well anyone else aware of this? see attached This is a bug, pls advise, respond.
  24. I converted a previous file to 2017 and started editing worksheets I already had in the drawing set. After editing the worksheets, they no longer appear on the sheets, but rather show a big X through it. I can still edit the worksheet, but it never appears unless I duplicate its instance in the resource browser and place the duplicate. Even then, after editing the duplicate, it does the same thing. Help!
  25. When I open one document it opens fine, but when I try to open a second document it crashes. Is this a known issue? Any fixes? System: Win10 64bit Geforce 980ti
