  1. We have hundreds of WinDoor symbols [Don't even ask!!!] - well, I say "symbols", but they have been saved as PIOs. What I want to do is create a symbol with a WinDoor Style and save it to the Resource Manager... Fine. I can do that, but when I use it it comes in as a symbol and to make any changes (outside of the Style) we have to explode it. Once exploded, it does however still have the correct Style attached. If I change the symbols to PIOs, everything looks great - when I place it, it is nicely exploded and I can change the form, willy nilly. BUT HOLD ON... it has lost the Style that I assigned to it and it has become its own WinDoor Style! Is anyone using WinDoor Styles effectively? Surely placing a symbol doesn't involve having to explode it and if it is a PIO instead, I would have to replace the style of every WinDoor element that I place so that it is linked to a "Parent". Please identify my stupidity! What am I missing???
  2. This is for the tech guys at VW. Perhaps we could see a fix in upcoming service packs? I've been toying with 3D window details such as using "Jamb Extensions" but I've noticed a glitch in how Interior trim interacts or positions itself in relation to the Jamb Extension. I've attached a couple of screen picks to illustrate the problem. I've never noticed this before as I've never used jamb extensions in earlier versions. I used clip cube to show this issue from a right side position. This is not an issue in top/plan view as seen in the second pic. It also does not matter what type of window one illustrates; Casement, single hung etc.
  3. Since upgrading to Windows 1909 I have had issues with my dGPU not working in Vectorworks. This has happened to two different laptops and in both instances the Nvidia dGPU would not turn on, and the on board GPU was doing all of the work. I reinstalled the Driver, and used the Nvidia control panel to set the High Performance Graphic card to be used always. It still wouldn't work. I then found this article: https://pureinfotech.com/set-gpu-app-windows-10/ Windows has changed how you set which GPU to use in which app, and it never seems to turn on dGPU unless you force it. Thought that I would share just in case any of you hit the same issue. The method on https://pureinfotech.com/set-gpu-app-windows-10/ Fixes the issue.
  4. Updated to Windows 10 - 1903 yesterday at the end of the day. Today VW is running rather... unsmoothly…. Every couple of minutes I get a short hangup. Anyone else noticing stability issues or do I need to go monkeying around in my settings to figure out what Microsoft just buggered around with. At first I thought it might have to do with the autosave cycle, so turned that off to see, and made no difference.
  5. Hi all, If the window hinge direction marker is set to "handle" (as is customary where I live), custom sash preview window always displays a flipped preview. Makes choosing handedness mighty confusing! Is there a setting to overcome this or is this a bug?
  6. Help please. We are trying (and failing miserably) to create a window schedule of a 1.5 storey house that has rooflights and dormers. We can create window and door schedules easily enough, but when we try and include dormer windows or rooflights - they are just ignored by VW - Help.
  7. Hi everyone, I have a very strange behaviour when setting up my windows, has anyone experience something like that? Is there a logical reason, something we've done wrong or is this a bug? Here are the "symptoms" : 1) I've set up a windows stylein my library, it looked all fine. It uses "Exterior Wall detail" setting to return the wall external component. 2) Then I started to put all my windows in my actual file. When I wanted to edit the window style I realised that I could change the setting of the window AS LONG AS the width of that window remains > 140cm. Below that the wall detail does not adjust and creates a gap between the wall and the window... the gap increases as the window becomes more narrow, as if the wall detail should be locked at 140cm 3) Not understanding the problem, I manually updated some 20 windows to readjust the gap... Yet as soon as I do ANY editing to the said windows (adjusting the sill for exemple) ... VW "forgets" my manul setting and goes back the the gap situation... Did anyone experienced this? What is the problem? thank you for your feed back
  8. Hi VWs Please can we add another parameter to the lintel tool on windows [and I assume doors] so that we can draw soldier and header courses above windows/doors more easily? We want to be able to draw a soldier course above a window [similar to attached photo] that doesn't extend past the reveal but this option is missing from the OIP. Surely it would be relatively easy to add this as per my sketch? We could then apply a different texture or surface hatch to the lintel to create the desired effect. While we're at it, please could we add an pressed aluminium sill to the sill options for windows as this is something we use quite a bit in the UK. Thanks in advance!
  9. I'd like to be able to enter some sort of name other than Custom for custom windows, in order to have them show up properly in schedules. I.E. we often use twinned or field mulled units from some manufacturers, and the easiest way to represent these with PIOs is with the custom sash option. However, I then end up having to do some work arounds on my schedule, because I don't want it to say "custom" (because a contractor is going to see that and drop a huge price on it, causing confusion until clarified). I think my ideal would be to have the custom sash option have a fillable field that would fill the sash record field for worksheets.
  10. Hello all Is there a 'definitive' recommended settings for nVidia GeForce Graphics Cards? I'm back to the PC and have not found any good answer. I"m having a decent amount of performance issues that I don't believe I should be having; as my new PC is epically superior to my 2012 MBP - yet my performance has not significantly improved; and in many cases has regressed. Help please! Ethan
  11. Hi, I am currently working towards PAS1192:2-2013 mandate and I am having some issues with the IFC import and the way we create windows. As we work on large housing schemes we work with window types, a method Vectorworks have previously advised to do it. So we create windows and then turn into symbols, so when placed within a wall they appear as a 'symbol in the wall'. However when exporting to IFC and either re-importing into VW to test or into Solibre Model Checker, the IFC format does not acknowledge the relationship between the wall and the window. I therefore tried exploding the symbol to test if it was this and when it is a 'window in wall' it views fine. I was wondering if anyone has had a similar issue and a work around. One way i was going to try was using symbol geometry in the window settings. therefore if you change the original source component then this will still change. However this will result in manual window changes to each window for height width etc. I have attached a solider model checker screenshot showing the if import result of a door in a wall as a 'symbol in a wall'. This also applies to doors. Thank you. Gavin
  12. Really like the windows (and doors) tool in VW. A real time saving tool and well worth spending a bit of time to set up window styles. Brilliant to be able to quickly place basic windows and then add more detail as project develops. The representation and control of sash windows is very good, but a couple of a couple of questions: 1) Anyone know of a simple way to show the 'boxes' for sash weights to more accurately represent the windows? 2) Splay wall: I need chamfered opening to walls vertically. Unfortunately it splays the sill (or cill) too, which needs to be flat. Don't think I've ever seen a sloping window sill.. Any suggestions appreciated.
  13. I started using Vw Landmark around 6 months with my pc with Windows 10. But from the begining I heart about the optimization of Vw for the Mac plataform. As I’m going throught increansingly complex projects, I would like to know your opinion: is there really a difference between plataforms or is it just “fan talk”? What is the “best suite for the Vw 2018? Thank you very much!!! ps: I tried to search the theme on the forum and didnt found any discussion.
  14. Hi All, Seem to have a problem with scrolling on certain palette when using Windows systems. I've noticed this on: PC running Windows 7 (vwx 2017 sp3, sp4, and 2018) Laptop running Windows 10 (vwx 2017 sp3, sp4, [not tested 2018]) Also tested with multiple brands of mice. I've uploaded a short video as I don't know how to describe the palette clearly. You can see that the scroll works fine on some palettes, but fails to work on the one shown at the end.

    Windows

    Perhaps I'm going about this the wrong way. I have a mid-rise residential building that I'm working on and I'm having to recreate the elevations by hand. Each "Window" consists of (see elevation01) fixed lower window, vertical pivot above, fixed larger window with louvered opening for PTAC. I would like to take these four elements and combine them into one symbol that I can insert into walls as this assembly appears on 50 of the 57 units. Any suggestions or assistance would be greatly appreicated.
  16. I’ve wanted to figure out how to model this for years and couldn't find a solution till now. Window surrounds that included brick stacks (the bricks that run along side the windows), the brick sills (sometimes called rowlocks), the brick soldiers (the taller bricks that run along the top of the windows) and the keystones (the sandstone shape in the middle of the soldiers). This is how I did it: - Window symbol was put (in the window class) and gave it my desired width/height specs. - I gave it a exterior trim roughly the width of a brick (3.67”); made it very thin (1/16”); and turned off trim under the window. - I assigned a brick bond texture (with a brick bond hatch) to the exterior window trim class. So far this gives you a window with brick side stacks and trim above the window that will soon be covered up by another piece. - Then I duplicated the window in place; turned it into a cased opening; made the jambs, trims and sashes all 0”; - I turned on the “lintel” and gave it an 8” ht. ( the ht. of a soldier); and an 1/8” ext. protrusion (so it sticks out proud of the top window trim). - I assigned a brick bond texture (with hatch) that runs vertically... to the "lintel" class. - I turned on the “sill” and fooled with the specs till I had it where I wanted it. - I assigned a brick bond texture (with hatch) that runs vertically (it might be the horizontal brick bond that works) to the "sill" class. - I also increased the width of this duplicate window symbol (wide enough for the lintel above and sill below to line up with the edge of the window trim on the main window symbol). - I may have fooled with the ht. slightly so that lintels and sills all aligned properly with the ht. of the main window symbol. - I changed the class on this duplicated window symbol to “non-plot” so that it would not show up on the window schedule - Lastly, I extruded a keystone shape (these vary in size)…I made mine a little taller than the soldiers…and slid it into place.
  17. Window Styles behave strange for me in VW 2018 SP0-1 1. Changing Styles Windows in Walls do not update reliably. Sometimes I need to pull them out of the Wall and back in. (Not 100% sure on this, could maybe be a editable Style Setting Component, but for sure I had cases where pulling out/in updated my Window) 2. Duplicating Styles May destroy/corrupt their Preview generation in Style Settings dialog. And therefore RM thumbnail and preview too. 3. a) Corner/Non Corner Windows Window Mode : Fixed Glass (Jamb+Sash+Glass) I use a Sash Depth Offset. As soon as some Windows, using that Style, are set to Corner Mode, this Offset will be ignored, sometimes even set to 0,00 in Style. All Windows will lose Sash Offset, not just Corner Mode Windows. 3. b) Corner Window : Sash Offset is controlled by Corner Settings "Corner Condition > Mode : "Corner Post", only (!), although I don't use that Mode but Flush Glass. This is the only Mode to set an Offset - but determins Sash Offset in general, when Corner Mode active for any of that Style's Windows !
  18. I am using series of windows in a recessed wall. I was hoping it to show adjust depth of windows after achieving wall recessed. In plan I still see previous depth of the windows that was showing before wall recessed . Does somebody know how to adjust window depths according to new recessed wall? Thanks!
  19. I have recently started using Vectorworks BIM capabilities. I am working on this project , it has this sloped window which turns into skylight. I am struggling to model this part as I am not sure which way to go. I would really appreciate If someone can lead me out of this darkness. Please see attached picture of the actual window. Thank you
  20. As far as I can tell, NNA door & window objects do not include a record field that report the net vent area (WinDoor objects provide these), and doors don't have a field for net glazed area. Any tips on how to calculate / report these in a glazing / fenestration schedule? Thanks! Cheers, Markus
  21. When I go to the settings menu in 2017 for Doors, the "Ok" and "Cancel" buttons don't show up, so I am unable to make changes and accept them. I did find that I can 'Tab' through until the invisible buttons are selected and hit 'Enter', but it's not what I would call a interactive.
  22. I did a test this evening with an old 13" macbook pro and a brand new, maxed out, 15" pro. Vectorworks took 40 seconds to start up on both systems. Does anyone have a beefy windows laptop (xps or a gaming laptop) to let me know if it is any better? Thanks!
  23. This happens with both Doors & Windows & I find this odd & perhaps a Bug: - Create any number of random Windows with different attributes - Choose one at random - Pick up this Window's attributes with the Eye dropper - Select with the Magic Wand & select all the windows - Apply the Eye dropper's attributes to the selected windows & they change Follow the same as above, but with the windows inserted into a wall, or series of walls - Only the one window that has been touched by the Eye dropper's bucket changes its attributes
  24. Is there a way to select an object as normal with left click. Then when you have selected the item ...release the left mouse button and the selected object will follow the curser. Then when you get to new placement location you can left click and it will drop the item. I'm basically looking for a mode or way to not have to hold the left button mouse down while moving objects.
  25. In VW2017 all of a sudden in elevation all Window IDs from opposite side of structure are showing. Any ideas why? Is this a bug or a setting?
