  1. I am not sure why there is so little conversation about it. I find it very common to reuse drawings at different scales and lack of control over window & door tag size makes it very difficult. The only solution so far, from what I know, is to adjust text size in advanced settings but that in turn forces the text to be different size in every viewport which in turn when copying notes from viewport to viewport makes the whole exercise quite cumbersome.
  2. It would be great to have a standard door for use in disabled/accessible WC's. i.e. the UK Doc 'M' Standard (image of a typical Doc M wc below). It is massively useful to have the hardware shown on this type of door, mainly the pull bar. Helpful for determining clear opening widths etc. even from early stages. A
  3. Hi all, When select the show ID TAG in the door/window OIP option and select the show in 3D, so when i have the elevations it automatically shows the tag for that door/window, while is showing in one of the elevations on the other elevation is not showing wonder if it's a bug ? I've done: Classes are all on, same layers are on, the doors & windows that don't show the ID TAG on the elevation, when i go to the 3D model they're showing Tried to turn off and on on those selected doors and windows, Still they don't show!

  4. Hello, I am trying to build my own custom door. the option that I get from the door menu is not what I am looking for. I am familiar with sketchup and, it is very easy 5 min job. However, I spent the whole day on Vectorworks trying to figure out, how I can easily built my own door? There is not even one tutorial I was able to find, easily explaining to make my own door. Can anyone please help me understand the trick? I have attached the picture of the door I am trying to create. Thank you!
  5. Not to hijack the Folding Door thread; this would be a different tool. We spec a number of these Folding Security Grills. A great addition would be to be able to draw the overhead track and have the tool generate the the nested grills in a pocket. There is a simple calculation based on the length of a folding grill & how many posts are required that gives one the minimum size of a pocket that needs to be built.
  6. Is there a way to create a Bi-Swing door that can show the doors swinging at different angles? I want one door to be shown open at 90º and another to be shown at 180º. Is there a way to do this within the door objects themselves without creating a complicated layering of separate objects to get it to tag in the schedule and show properly? Thanks.
  7. Hi All, Quick question - apologies if there is an obvious answer, I did a search couldn't see anything. Is there a standard Doc M compliant (UK) or similar Disabled Toilet Door symbol anywhere in the libraries of doors? (i.e. larger size with grab bar). It's a pretty common thing to need and I was surprised I couldn't find one at a glance in the Vectorworks symbols libraries. Thanks, A
  8. I have to admit that while the general cad capacity of VW is great ( I have been using it since it was Minicad 3.0) but the worksheets and schedules are atrocious. It just cannot be that every time something needs to be changed it needs another code - I am a designer not a computer coder. There has to be default shortcuts. Nobody has time to search for codes (most of the ones listed on the forum don't work) and all the time wasted.
  9. I have a problem with my Doors in my file. I have 2 overlapping (!) Doors in a Wall. 1 Slider Door + 1 Framed Door to get a Frame for the Wall Opening. Both are "Styled" Doors (!) 1. As I activated Door Labels and saw them overlapping I thought I could just "flip" the Framed Door to "mirror" the Label this way. I realized that VW 2017 will crash each time I try to do so. So i thought, fine, I found a real bug and copied one of these Walls with its Doors in Wall into a new file to bug report. Unfortunately when I tried, VW will not crash doing same in the simple demo file. 2. So I thought it might be time for the typical "Reset Plugins". Unfortunately VW 2017 will crash each time I try to do so. VW will not crash doing same in the simple demo file. I will attach the non-crashing Demo File here first for illustration. The real File would be 90 MB or 70 MB zipped. BUG_DOOR.vwx
