3D viewport preference settings have no effect in document

Recommended Posts

Having a small issue with the 3d view preferences I think

I have set them to change to open GL render mode and the projection as "narrow perspective" in the Vectorworks preferences menu, but this seems to have no effect on the drawing.

I tend to work in plan view and then use the flyover tool to rotate the model to get a sense of the what's going on. I was under the impression that these settings in the preferences would be automatically applied.

Am I missing something?

Still using VW 2015 on Macbook Pro with OSX 10.7.5

Once you enter a 3D view they should be applied, go to top/plan then back to an isometric and and see if the perspective appears. This was tweaked in 2016 as well.
