VW Viewer needs to allow textures


With 2017's "Renderworks for everyone" I was hoping that textures would work in the Vectorworks Viewer as well. I need to be able to send my file to someone who doesn't own VW and have them be able to use the walkthrough tool in OpenGL and see the finishes.  I understand not including Renderworks render styles, but without textures, the Vectorworks Viewer is fairly useless to our team.

Agreed, I'm sending BIM files to a builder to help them with take-off calculations, and with no textures showing up in viewer, they can't easily see what's brick, what's timber etc, etc.

Is this due to be fixed anytime soon?

So this is still an issue I presume. I just installed VW-V 2019 on my other machine to do presentation cause VW Cloud is so-so and on my surprise I got all white wherever I've applied the texture.
