  1. Hi All, I am having some trouble with a section viewport created from a clip cube. I want to alter the location/size of the clip forming one of my section viewports. I can go into the viewport, see the clip cube and move it. However when I exit the modelspace back to the viewport, the section cut is not updated to match the updated clip cube. Is this working as expected? Do I have to delete this viewport and form a new one if I want to edit the position or size of the clip cube? Thanks, A
  2. Hi, I have had this issue happen to me on several occasions, where I place a viewport on a sheet (viewport of just a simple line drawing on the design layer, no symbols or anything fancy, although sometimes it also happens when it's a viewport of a referenced file) and after working on the file for a while all of a sudden the content of the viewport is not visible anymore. It only shows up when I zoom in or out, but disappears when I stop. It happens completely at random and for several files. I have checked all obvious things, like if all layers and classes are on, etc. I don't think it is a setting that is wrong or if I accidentally gave a wrong command, but more that it is either a bug on my computer or my vectorworks program? I have had someone tell me it might be a problem with the graphic card? Thoughts? Thanks! Kim

    Hand Rail Line Weight

    Hey guys, I'm just trying to change the line weight of a hand rail object in the elevation/section viewport. I'm sure this is possible, however I haven't been able to find the solution. My desired lineweight is 0.13mm, however it displays thicker in elevation/section view. I've included images of the OIP and attributes. The layer that the object is placed on is set to 0.13mm, but as you can see this is not the case. Thanks, Raymond

    Viewports Disintegrate

    A problem with my viewports occurs more and more often, which is that at some point all viewports on all sheet layers in various of my project VW files disintegrate. All viewports had already been previously rendered. This results in all viewports now showing up in Wireframe = none-rendered, whilst still keeping their settings. How st this even possible?
  5. Is it possible to create a Section-Viewport in Wireframe? I want my model to be represented in Wireframe, but after I create a Section of it, I do not find an option that lets me keep it as Wireframe in the Section-Viewport. Closest I find in the list is "Hidden Line". Thank you!
  6. Dear VW lovers, when rendering a Viewport and searching for the best outcome and in a time saving manner at the same time, I do Test Renders of various Viewports along side of each other and monitor the time they take to render apart from the result of the quality. Rendering a Viewport can take some time, so either I work on something else - once the VW program allows it - or I walk away. Either way - once the Viewport is not 'active' the slider on the bottom right hand side of the program won't show the time it took to render. And it cannot be retrieved. At east I haven't seen it. At times it doesn't show the render time at all when the 'Auto-Backup' pops in between. Q&A Is there a Setting or some way I can go back to a Viewport and see how long it took to render? Any insights are appreciated. Cheers, Grethe

    Viewport Out of Date

    Dear VW lovers! Q&A Is there a way to avoid for a Viewport to become 'Out of Date' when simply going to an associated Design Layer of the Viewport? Example I go to a Design Layer - either by: A) Double Click on a VP --> Edit Viewport --> Design Layer or B) via the Navigation Palette I don't change anything on the Design Layer. I only activate everything and copy it. This in order e.g. to copy paste it to a new and unrelated Design Layer to try out some things. By that time ALL VIEWPORTS associated with the Design Layer are out of Date. If I go direct and simply --> 'Duplicate the Design Layer' then of course all associated VPS are also Out of Date because they attach themselves automatically to DL duplicates. Soooo frustrating and time-consuming to re-render everything .... Is there a 'Work-Around" to this or am I the only one experiencing this? Cheers, Grethe
  8. Hi everyone, I have used few of skylights symbols on roof face but it not showing up on hidden line elevation viewports. Has somebody faced a similar situation? Thanks! Hassan
  9. Recently Revit 2019 enhanced it's visibility filters by adding an "OR" option which makes this feature even more powerful than what it was. For those who don't understand Revit's visibility settings, one can control elements from being shown or not, overriding colours, etc. eg. some copies of a family (equal to vw symbols) can be visible and other copies of the same family (symbol) can be invisible. My wish would be to have a filter option for vw viewports. However, for this to work effectively (with the power found in Revit) another feature need to be added, that is, parameters. Eg. various parameters can be applied to symbols then using the filter option, certain copies of a symbol can be visible and other ones (of the same symbol) can have their colours overridden, etc. Htms, Jershaun
  10. After years of creating viewports with drawn rectangles, all of a sudden on files I've been using for a long time, a green rectangle comes up in 2D crop viewports both on the sheet layer and the original design layer. Sometimes there are several stacked on the design layer. They show up as simple rectangles in the None class - I can delete them, but they come back. I've never seen these in over 17 years of using MiniCad / VW. There must be some default that got triggered. I'd like to know how to get rid of these for good. thanks, Ken
  11. Dear VW team, I wish it would be possible when creating a new Viewport to have the option to create a crop right there and then, for example in the shape set by the camera settings - 'Aspect Ratio 16:9'. This by choice or default. Reasons for my wish are: 1) when being on the sheet layer and I want to move a Viewport that has no crop object within, it is more difficult to snap to the corners of the VP in order to position it on my layouts 2) when trying to place a rectangle into the open Viewport Crop to have my VPs match the shape which has been created by the Aspect Ratio, it also does not snap to the corners of the VP, whilst it does snap to the 3 snaps on each side Hope this makes any sense, please let me know in case there are any questions. Happy days from Melbourne OZ. Grethe
  12. Dear VW Lovers, I am creating a Viewport with Hidden Line RW Style. Unfortunately the process of rendering is not possible, meaning it not only renders indefinitely but also the VW program becomes none responsive. This probably due to a lot of detail in the drawing. As a result I have to 'Force Quit' the program and start again. After many times of trying I am now working around the issue like this: Viewport on-top of Viewport - splitting the drawing into multiple Viewports with different Design Layers visible - thereafter I overlay one Viewport on-top of the other --> Problem Any objects in a Viewport are not filled. --> Which results that you can see through all the objects on any VP. I would like to be able to create a VP that 'closes' the objects and nit the whole VP. Like when you give an object a fill through the Attributes. Only when I give the VP a fill through the Attributes palette the whole VP becomes filled and not only the objects. I have attached a screenshot of the individual Viewports and the one on the right hand side bottom holds the sandwiched Viewports. Here it shows that all objects have no fill. I would be grateful for any input and work around. Cheers, Grethe
  13. Hi, Is there a way to automatically relocate the page (printable area) to the centre of a new viewport? - without having to zoom out massively and try to spot it's current location and drag it manually. Cheers,
  14. It would be very helpful if there were some solution to interior elevation viewports dis-associating with their markers when copying to different sheet layers. It would be fine if the move had to be accomplished by going to the elevation marker itself and specifying a new sheet layer, as long as all viewport annotation items are retained. As it is, if I want to change the sheet layer for an interior elevation VP, I need to create a new marker pointing to the desired sheet, and then copy all annotation layer items and any crops to the new viewport, which is irritating and time consuming. It's pretty common that we end up needing to reorganize our elevation sheets as we move through the phases, usually as new elevations become important due to finish choices.
  15. For some reason I cannot reference external file via viewport on a design layer. "source" is greyed out. Any ideas.
  16. Hi, I'm wondering if there is a way to save a render in pixel dimensions instead of what's supported in sheet layers which are millimeters. I'd like to export a render the way you do in Cinema 4D, by telling the width and height of your rendered image in pixels... This would work if one would want to make a render that would fit snuggly to a specific 4K TV or any screen really... Hope someone can help me figuring this out. Thanks in advance.
  17. 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.
  18. I wonder if it is possible to have class control in viewport by group just like in navigation window. I reuse viewports for different purposes and it having more global control over classes would be a time saving for sure.
  19. Is there a way to automatically update viewports without having to tell VW every single time to update each viewport? Its a bit ridiculous to not have this happen automatically. If i change something as simple as a visibility within a sheet layer and switch it back, VW tells me that every single view now needs to be updated with its "candy cane" boarder. Just FYI, the visibility that was changed has nothing on it and should not affect the viewport anyways. Thanks.
  20. I have not often used dvlp refs to external file but wanted to report. In at least one file, Vwx crashes a second or two into a slvp update if a dvlp ref is out of date. Is that usual? Seems like it should refuse to start the slvp update and warn about the out of date ref? -B
  21. OK, maybe it's me. I haven't been doing much with 2017. Still working w/2016. Went to create a viewport from an object but the option is not there. When choosing "Create Viewport" it doesn't ask me about using the selected object. I can't find anywhere to reset that request. Any ideas?
  22. Hi all, When I draw a line on a 3D plane with line type set to dashed: And I create a section viewport that shows this line (hidden line render mode), I get the following result: Anyone has an idea how to display this line as a dashed line in the section viewport? EDIT: Design and Sheet layer have the same scaling set (1:10) Thank you, Bert
  23. I did post this in another area of the Community (Architecture) so apologies if this is doubling it up but I wonder if anyone can shed any light on this please? The 3D solid object is absolutely correct (does not appear to contain any errors) when viewed on its own Design Layer (in OpenGL): But when viewed in a Viewport from a Sheet Layer, it looks like this (as a Shaded Polygon): It's a bit of a long story as to how the object is produced (I can provide details if required) but it is a 3D solid object, derived from various solid additions and subtractions. This has just started happening with VW 2018. Does anyone have ideas as to what could be causing this please?
  24. So for the 2018 Vectorworks after you make a viewport and put it on a sheet, there is a defaulted drawing label in the annotation. How do I change my setting so that the drawing label does not show up with ever new viewport I make?

    Disapearing viewports

    Hi I need help. Just upgraded to 2018 and 4 viewports that are on active set of drawings are invisible. I say invisible because I can select them and I get an orange high light and also when I zoom in or out they flash on the screen and then disappear. I tried: saving and restarting , turning on all classes and layer, updating the veiwport. making sure lines were turned on etc. it is only happening with just a couple of VPs on one sheet. any help would be greatly appreciated.
