Time in vectorworks log

Recommended Posts

In the preferences for VW there's a box to tick that logs the time spent in VW. Where can I find this log? What exactly does it log? Does it just log the time the program is open or does it log keystrokes or something along those lines?

Not there, and I double checked to make sure I have the option on. I have not opened a file today but I'd imagine it would be a running log and not disappear once I close out a drawing.

I have just tried on my Mac. It does work for me. The file named "Vectorworks Log" contains:

11.02.19, 18:56:31 	Turned logging on.
11.02.19, 18:56:40 	Closed "Untitled 1".
11.02.19, 18:56:41 	Quit Vectorworks.

Thinking further, the picture you have shown does not look like the content of a typical VW user folder.

 

Is it really the folder as defined in the VW preferences?

So I'm thinking I'm gonna have to ask out IT company "what the hell". These are all the images of all my libraries. Everything is in its place where its supposed to be. I'd have to agree my user library seems small. Am I just missing some small detail (i do that)?

The "Library" folder that's within the "justin" folder is actually a hidden folder, so to see it you'd have to hit Cmd+Shift+period.

 

Or as Marissa suggests, the easiest way is to just hit the Reveal in Finder button. 🙂
