Hi @Tim Harland,

I am sorry to hear that you are having issues with referenced geometry. There are a few prerequisites for referenced files to work on the Cloud:


1. The referenced files must be uploaded to the same storage location as the master .vwx file. 

For example, if your master .vwx file is saved on Vectorworks Cloud Services storage, the referenced files must already be uploaded at the time you submit the master file for processing.

For example if your .vwx file is saved on your Desktop and you submit it for Publishing on the cloud, the referenced files won't be uploaded, so the cloud rendering would not contain the geometry, unless your master .vwx file contains the saved reference cache.


2. Both the master and the referenced files need to be converted to the latest Vectorworks file version (which is 2023 currently).

For example, if your .vwx file is created in Vectorworks 2022, you can submit it for processing, but the Vectorworks 2023 running on the Cloud won't be able to use your referenced files even if they are uploaded to the same storage, because they are an older version. 


I hope that helps.

Please let me know if I can assist you further in any way.


Best regards,

Iskra Nikolova
