Duplicate along a path in Vectorworks 2008

Recommended Posts

I just got Vectorworks 2008 for windows xp and can't seem to find the duplicate along a path icon. I use that tool all the time in previous versions of Vectorworks. I've tried to use it from the edit drop down menu, but it doesn't let me. Has this tool been changed in the new version?

Select both the path object and the object to be duplicated along the path and then select the Duplicate Along Path menu item on the Edit menu.

Thanks for the tip. I drew a path, then selected both the object and the path line and it worked. I like the old way better.

The move by points mode does what the dupe along path tool did and then some. The dupe along path tool is still there, as Jonathan suggests.

Does it? I can get it to use just a displacement vector, not to follow a path.

The Dupe Along Path menu will follow a path - you set a specific distance, or duplicate number. checkmark the tangent option if you want them to twist, too.
