.xml files

VW creates many XML files in the background. What XML file are you looking for? I suspect you want to use Lightwright. If I'm right, you need to check the "Use automatic Lightwright data exchange" box in the spotlight preferences dialog. If you need a different XML file, let us know.

Have you checked in:

  1. same location as you keep the VWX file.
  2. VW your user folder
  3. your documents folder.

Are you running Mac or Windows? Have you done a search for the file using the OS search? The file should be the same name as the file you're working with.

OH! and have you actually saved the new file you're working with? If not, the XML file wouldn't have a name to use.

Have you named and saved the Vectorworks file? The xml file name is based on the Vectorworks file name and location and useless the Vectorworks file has been saved there is not a valid file name and path to create the xml file.
