Floating views - multi view.

Recommended Posts

While VW is working as expected, I want to view two VW files at the same time, for comparison. (a bit like you would in photoshop)

So I thought it would be a great idea to make a floating view, move it to monitor number 2, and then change the file to the second file on monitor one.

Well, it minimises the second view.


Does anyone have any hacks or tricks to view two files at the sametime (other than using DLVPs)

I don't think Vectorworks can do this.   I'm using windows so when I want to do that I use the Snipping tool to take a screen shot of drawing 1 and then put it on my second monitor so that I can refer to while working on the other drawing 2.

If you stretch the vw main window across both monitors you can have two different file windows open within the main window. One on each monitor.
