Vectorworks Abbreviations' Glossary

Recommended Posts

It strikes me that the oft used abbreviations stymie a new user's understanding of the software, and a search of the Help system returns a null result.

In the spirit of JA I'd like to expose some of them. Please feel free to augment the list.



OIP - Object Information Palette

RB - Resource Browser

NP - Navigation Palette

EAP - Extrude Along Path

PIO - Plug In Object

WP - Working Plane
