  1. Wondering if anyone has a work around this problem. I have my hinge markers set to 'exterior' only, but in structures where there are window on both side of the building, I can see the back of the hinge through the glazing in my elevations. Thoughts? See attached image:
  2. Can someone remind me of the quick command to make a hole in a wall in 3D instead of using Subtract Solids. I have the answer for anyone who needs to know. Ensure the AUTOMATIC PLANE is on. Push/pull and use hold down ALT, click enter. Thanks,
  3. Vectorworks 2020 on PC. All of my clerestory corner windows objects that are under 2'-0" in height do not connect in the 3D model at the corner. I'm not sure when or why it happened but every corner window in my project is now offset from each other. It did not used to be like this. Let me know if you are aware of any mistakes I may have made here. ***I just tried this in a new file and the same thing occurred. Something strange is happening with corner windows set to "Clerestory" Turning off clerestory fixes the problem however I would like for my windows to display as single dashed lines in 2D. I'm curious to see if this happens with anyone else.
  4. We're having an issue with door and window tags which cannot be flipped into the correct visual orientation for the purpose of exporting into DWG. Whilst in Vectorworks we can adjust the text of the tag in the model space or viewport, when exported the tags revert to their 'unflipped' state. Below is an indication of how the door tags are viewed within vetorworks with the text flipped and again how it appears when exported to DWG. We cannot seem to find any setting or method of inserting the doors to get the ID tags in the correct orientation.
  5. Hi, Does anyone know how to set a thickness for the break/cap line for a window or door? I would like the make it match the wall as below. Thanks
  6. Hello. How can I make window hinge markers visible in hidden line viewports? I want them to be visible in elevation, but they don't display in any of my viewports. I have ticked Show Interior and Exterior Hinge Markers in the object settings. The hinge marker class is also turned on in the viewports. When I look at my model in 3D wireframe mode the hinge markers are visible but as soon as I switch to hidden line mode they disappear. They disappear both on the interior and the exterior side. Same thing happens with the window preview when I try to edit the window settings. Surely there must be a way to display the hinge markers in elevations (hidden line viewports). Alternatively, is there any other render mode I can use for my viewports to get a decent line drawing elevation? Thanks
  7. How do I change the ID tag on a door or window, without converting to unstyled? Currently all the instances of a particular style of door have the same ID tag! Not helpful. If I go into the settings for a particular instance, the ID tag options are greyed out....If I convert to unstyled, that defeats the object of having pre-prepared styles that can be edited across the project easily e.g. if Client decides to have a different shaped vision panel in the front doors across a series of houses, or we have particular product data to update the style with later in the project. I'm trying to generate a door schedule too.
  8. Hi all, I'm having hard time trying to replicate this window I got from a client with the VW window tool. Is it possible? Cheers, Juan
  9. It would be useful to have a little more control over the glazing used in window objects. I.e. double glazing, triple glazing. This is usually not too big of an issue as the sort of scale these windows are viewed at, its generally OK to treat the glazing as one object. However we are currently working on a project with a recording studio, which has very high acoustic requirements - to achieve this there is a significant gap between each layer of glazing (300mm in this case!) which we would like to see in our drawings.
  10. i've a standard custom window, 3 panels with top lights, top lights have glazing bars but it only seems to apply to the first window? (+ is it possible to change view controls to interior or exterior instead of front / back? makes no current sense)
  11. Hi, I think it would be amazing if Vectorworks would let us create a window that has a shorter sliding window over a larger window. This is a very common type of case... But currently there is now way of creating this parametrically. I attach two images. Number 1 is the closest we can get to using the window tool in Vectorworks. Image 2 is the type of window I wish Vectorworks could be capable of making parametrically (photoshopped image). Hope it gets implemented soon! p.s. If this could be implemented to the door tool that would be even better!
  12. I have several documents open at a time and love the docking tabs for documents. Quite often though I manage to "tear off" and undock a document by accident, and I have to drag it back to the dock. Is there a setting to stop that happening and only allow documents to be opened in the application window?
  13. Hi, would anybody know how can I make the wall caps black and not grey (like the jamb of the window...) I've tried everything but can't get the wall to be a continuos black line. The widow interferes with its grey jamb.
  14. While browsing YouTube I've come across this video from the Belgium distributor of Vectorworks and shows a very, VERY capable Window Tool, looks far superior to the one we already have in Vectorworks and is not a separate plugin , so why this is not part of the regular Vectorworks version? Window tool
  15. How do I get a 4" wide sash around the perimeter of of window opening using the custom sash options? When I try to add it, I get 4" sash between every muntin. I made the muntins 4" wide to simulate the sash pattern in between and thats not right either. Also when I try making the jamb 4" wide, to simulate a 4" sash all around, it does not sit in the 12" thick wall properly. This is an existing location with a wood sash pattern, but should I just simulate it with the CURTAIN WALL TOOL instead? Thanks Judy d
  16. Hi guys, How to fit corner window in wall which is jointed using capped wall joint mode? While inserting, it is not fitting properly. Could anyone help in fixing it For clarity i attach few screenshots and Vectorworks file corner window.vwx
  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. How can i "PRINT" a select poriton of a drawing by defining a window? Is there a way through the print dialogue box? If not, this should really be an option.
  19. 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!

  20. Following the Bricscad conference tweets I noticed two things of their BIM presentation that I think most of us, not just architects, might want to have implemented in Vectorworks: Tweet 1: " Cool new Window creator tool. Draw a rectangle and convert it into a 3d parametric BIM window in V18 " Tweet 2 (following tweet 1): " Wait! V18 BricsCAD Windows need not be rectangular only. Offset any geometry and create parametric window in 3D " And to add insult to injury: Tweet 3: " Long awaited tool! A staircase can now be placed in seconds and is fully 3d parametric " Please don't tell me I have to consider exporting my structure to DWG, import it in B-thing as @zoomercalls it, create my (simple) stair in seconds, import it into VW and if levels of the structure change adjust in seconds in B-thing and re-import to VW instead of wrestling with the VW stair tool. Now not only Archicad has a stair tool that works better than VW's one, but even a dwg based program can now more easily produce a proper and editable stair than VW. Please do make updating the stair tool to a more productive level a priority for VW2019, it is starting to look more and more outdated and dysfunctional by now. (and add that stair tool in Landmark as well, not just Architect).
  21. Anyone know how to pull out the window style being used for a window in a worksheet?
  22. Please, Vectorworks, how this option is still missing, when you use the Exterior Wall detail option in the windows It just works in Top/Plan view But when you switch to Perspective we have this, why?
  23. In Jim's Knowledge Base list of window functions for worksheets I cannot find "Overall Window Area". Is there such a function to return the elevational area of the window? For now I use the obvious workaround :WindowWidth*WindowHeight. Before using this workaround I was using the function "Area" . This returns a value for each window in my database worksheet. But the value is larger, though not much, than Width*Height. I guess Area is too simplistic for using with the 3D Window object , being normally for 2D objects. PS I am finding VWX2016 a truly rewarding experience!
  24. Hi everyone, I have an issue, whenever I insert a window with a sill, wood or whatever, I cannot flip the window in the wall so the sill faces outside of the room. The Flip button in the OIP does nothing when the window has a sill. I'm on Vectorworks 2017 SP4...
  25. 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.
