Snap to page and presentation units

Recommended Posts


I'm using Vectorworks 2010 and I have a frustrating issue.

In my presentation sheets, it seems possible to snap to the page's corners, which is of couse useful to draw a frame or to align my drawings.

However, this particular snap is very unaccurate and makes it almost unusable.

I joined some screenshots, showing what happens when I use the snap, and then zoom in. Incredibly, the more I zoomed in, the more accurate the snap is, but if I zoom in too much, it doesn't snap anymore...

Do you have the same issue ? Is there a workaround ?

And by the way : is there a way to have different units on my presentation sheets and on my drawing sheets ? (meters in the drawing sheets, millimeters in my presentation sheets)

Thanks for your help !

OK. Is there a plan to have a patch ?

I also noticed that sometimes a rectangle gets created which seems to have the same size than the page. However, I didn't understand how to make that on purpose (maybe it's a keyboard shortcut)

There are no patched for previous versions anymore once the next got out. You can draw a rectangle with the size of the page and then use the info palette to set the middle point to the origin of the page?
