Question

Hi all, our architects practice currently has up to 8 users working on projects, all running VW 2017 Architect (Fundamentals, Architect, Renderworks licensed) on Macs with a Mac pro server, using SMB. Recently we've landed some larger projects requiring multiple users working on the same scheme, which to date we have managed using split files and laborious processes of recombining information every day or so.

 

So, surely Vectorworks has a better way of handling this... of course it does, Project Sharing. So I've started reading the various tutorials to get us up and running, but have tripped at the very first hurdle; creating a Project Sharing file.

 

All the guides say to say the file on a shared drive; OK, all our files are on a shared drive already.

 

Then they say to choose File: Project Sharing to begin setting up shared access permissions etc.

 

Problem - I go to File:... and there is no "Project Sharing" option in the menu. It's not greyed out, it's just simply not there. Am I missing something simple here?

Trying changing your Workspace: Tools > Workspaces

 

Or add it to your current Workspace: Tools > Workspaces > Menus > All Menus > Project Sharing... (drag across to the File menu)

Wonderful!

 

Many thanks Christiaan, I assume this has occurred because I imported my old VW2012 workspace with all of my hotkey preferences setup.

 

Thanks again

No prob, yes that's probably the case, although there should be an option now to pull in new menus at the time, if memory serves me correctly.

I think that pull in new menu option has been around for at least a version or two now, and I don't think it's ever worked for me.  I always end up manually adding the new menus to my workspaces.
