  1. After previewing VW2018, I am again excited at some of the new features! Landscape architects using the software can rejoice at: · Multiple Views – This is pretty awesome upon first glance · Better Site Model Contour Manipulation – The updated interface and experience will take a little getting used to, but the added control over 2d-3d contours is a much-awaited feature · Worksheets – The slightly updated interface and interplay with the criteria selection will make some of worksheets’ notoriously difficult to understand elements a little easier to manipulate and interact with. · Irrigation Tool Fixes – Hatches for drip areas and the ability to rotate symbols on a pipe are great additions Knowing that the next Version’s list is already being developed, I would like to reiussue my running wishlist for VW2019 or even the next service pack? For comparison, here is my big list from last year. (https://forum.vectorworks.net/index.php?/forum/19-wishlist-feature-and-content-requests/&do=add) First of all, some of my wishes were granted, or at least partially. With links to the original posts, they are as follows: Create Objects from Shapes – Fixed in 2018! https://forum.vectorworks.net/index.php?/topic/43106-create-objects-from-shapes-alters-vertex-control/ https://forum.vectorworks.net/index.php?/topic/49842-create-objects-from-shapes-fidelity-loss-in-vertex-control/ Irrigation - Symbol/Component Rotation – Fixed in 2018! https://forum.vectorworks.net/index.php?/topic/45311-irrigation-tools-bug-how-to-rotate-symbols-dripline-outlets-etc/ https://forum.vectorworks.net/index.php?/topic/49849-irrigation-tools-symbolcomponent-rotation/ https://screencast-o-matic.com/watch/cDX33GQh5g Better Tangent Snapping for Circles and Arcs – Kind of fixed in 2018? Partial fix in 2018? It seems that some efforts were made on this point, but the problem still exists. Some tangent point appear when trying to connect two arcs with a third tangent to both arc, but they are incorrect. https://forum.vectorworks.net/index.php?/topic/48013-better-tangent-snapping-for-circles-and-arcs/ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=umUiKBdLQKM Hide Database Headers on Export – Kind of fixed in 2018? OIP for worksheets now includes a checkbox to hide database headers. I would still love to see this as a checkbox option in the plot/publish menu. https://forum.vectorworks.net/index.php?/topic/44341-hide-database-headers-on-export/ So…that leaves us with a running list of all of the wishlist items that still remain. These are prioritized based on our perceived level of importance in day-to-day workflows. Note that I have also attached an excel spreadsheet we use internally to categorize our wish list items. Design Layer and Sheet Layer Hierarchy - No changes in 2018 https://forum.vectorworks.net/index.php?/topic/42924-project-sharing-design-layer-and-sheet-layer-hierarchy/ File Size - No changes in 2018 Many of our files are getting too cumbersome to work with. As the ideal workflow seems to be the idea of project sharing, where everything is located in one file and team members check out that file to work simultaneously, we are at a standstill. Right now our workflow contains 5 files (L-Hardscape, L-Irrigation, L-Planting, L-Details, and L-Base) all referenced together to create our drawing set. Each file can top out at over 1 GB of size, making combining all of this information into 1 file impossible. Can you imagine a 3-4 GB VW file...we can. With that said, finding a way to dramatically reduce file size and/or the draw on the computer is going to be vital for us going forward. The projects and demands being placed on us aren't getting any easier, so we need a software that is nimble and can react with us and VW seems to be heading in the opposite direction. IN VW2018 - A bare bones 35.68 MB file becomes a 36.08 MB file. Albeit a relatively small increase in file size, this is going in the wrong direction from our perspective.

I haven’t had an opportunity to do more than a cursory look over the new Title Block tool and it seems a little complex! Maybe too complex? That being said, I am pretty sure the referenced file workflow updating project based information between several referenced project files will work with this new tool, just as it didn’t with the Sheet Border tool https://forum.vectorworks.net/index.php?/topic/41885-bpreferencing-titleblock-symbols-in-different-files-but-same-project/ Enhanced Clip Cube Operability – No Changes in 2018 https://forum.vectorworks.net/index.php?/topic/42923-enhanced-clip-cube-operability/ Auto Color Classification for Data Visualization Viewports – No Changes in 2018 http://webhelp.esri.com/arcgisdesktop/9.2/index.cfm?TopicName=Standard_classification_schemes https://forum.vectorworks.net/index.php?/topic/46022-auto-color-classification-for-data-visualization-viewports/ https://forum.vectorworks.net/index.php?/topic/45692-data-visualization-auto-range/ Select Similar Tool to Work for Plant Objects – No Changes in 2018 Fixed, I guess?
