Unfortunately, this is not addressed in this version but might be in one of the next updates.

Katie,

I am amazed that it has not been fixed.

If you could only dock one pallet directly over the next one without an offset I could understand. The way the pallets dock staggered, as they are now, indicates that some bright decision maker accepted a software bug in an obviously visible spot of the interface. As a user, I wonder were else this bright decision maker has compromised the integrity of the system.

In this day and age it is a given that most programs have movable toolbars, pallets. In fact docking pallets worked just fine in the earlier versions. The code is most likely a carryover from prior version but is interacting with new code. That interaction is considered acceptable really makes me concerned with what else may be hidden.

It is really amazing this product is released passing software quality inspections.

The problem is not as easy as it sounds. It's actually quite a difficult task to address the palette docking issue from what I've heard from the engineer.

If only it were as easy to weed thru a line or two and make a correct change.

Katie,

I can appreciate how difficult a problem it is. Nothing in software is easy.

I still like the product quite a bit.

Peter, I was able to dock my palettes one over the other. But it wasn't easy - in fact, I can't tell you how I did it. One thing I did was to customize the workspace so that my tool palettes were a long string! For the other column containing 2 palettes, I tried docking them first in one order, then another, and after a few minutes I finally hit the right combination.

I'm confused by this thread. Is everyone aware that version 10 allows you to disable palette docking altogether? I was as happy as a clam when I saw that.

You can put the palettes wherever you want and they stay there, and you can just click on the one you want to move it to the top, or double-click to minimize them window-shade style. Like in version 8. And better - you can pick the number of columns for each tool palette.

I am pretty sure that list will be put up when the download is available.

It's a long list, I know that much !

Is there something in particular you are looking for being fixed?

I am hoping that the pallete docking problems in the Windows version is solved. I just hate to loose screen real estate to tool bars that take up an extra row.

I have not had additional issues.

thanks,

Jan, This is true, but you cannot place palettes along the top right under the menus. That's where most people put palettes to keep the drawing area as wide as possible.

Yes I can. I can put them anywhere I want, even off the screen.

I normally keep 3 palettes on screen but rolled up (just the top bar showing), on the right side of that grey bar just under the coordinate display (the one that says what tool is currently selected), so the drawing window is completely unobstructed.

One of my beefs about version 9 was that I couldn't do that, because double-clicking to window-shade them made them dock if they were in that position. But 10 fixed that, by including a check-box called "Enable Palette Docking", in the Session tab of VectorWorks Preferences.

When you dock palettes at the top of the screen, they dock in a single row.

This is the trickier way to dock palettes in Vw 10.

With palette docking turned off, you cannot get a entire palette to display across the top of the screen in one row. The maximum number for the width setting in Workspace Editor is 9. This would make palettes like the 2d and Objects arranged in two rows, rather than one like docking does for you.

Even if you minimize the palette, you still can't get all the tools in one row.

That's the reason most people are complaining. It's not allowing them to maximize the space on their screen in an organized fashion.

BTW in VW 9, you could set the palettes to not dock by holding down the control key while moving them.

By grabbing the left hand bar or portion of the palette I was able to easily stack the toolbars.

I took your advice and modified the workspace to a single row of tools directly under the menu. Once I get used to the organization I think it will work out well.

Thanks for the suggestion

What happened to the downloadable update to 10.1?

You promised that it will be available on the 17th, today is the 19th and there is still no sign of the file in your download section.

The update should be available one day this week.

Unfortunately, we've been hit with about 28" of snow since the weekend and have been closed until today (Wednesday).

There will be a notice when the update is available.

Hey Yovav

Does it say anywhere on this thread or on the download site that Nemetschek, as you say, "promised" to release v10.1 on the 17th?

I don't think so. Be patient...there's a snowstorm in them parts.
