Drawing only visible while zooming.

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I'm new to vectorworks & the forum & have what i hope is a simply answered question!

I work from two workstations, my desktop @ the office and a laptop at home.

When I open a rather large file on my laptop my entire drawing is only visible while i'm scrolling and/or zooming.

Has anyone else experienced this? Thanks very much.

Hi Abrewin

Sounds like a video card limitation, but there are plenty of folks here that can verify this. You might find it helpful to edit your profile so when you post a question all the viewers can see your computer specs, VW version, etc.

Good luck and I think you'll find this a great resource for trouble shooting and generally learning more about VW.

Hi J. Wallace,

That very well could be, I will edit my profile so it displays the proper information. Thank you very much for your prompt response.

I am running VW 2014 Fundamentals, Architect, Renderworks & Interiorcad.

Here are my computer specs for now:

? Windows 7 Professional 64-bit

? 2nd generation Intel® Quad Core i7-2720QM (2.2 GHz, 6MB L3 Cache) w/Turbo Boost up to 3.3 GHz

? 1GB GDDR5 Radeon HD 6770M Graphics [HDMI, VGA]

? 16 GB installed as 2 x 8 GB PC3-10600 memory

? 750GB 5400RPM Hard Drive with HP ProtectSmart Hard Drive Protection

Thanks again, this has already been a great resource for me. I look forward to exploring it further.
