Installing third party plugins

Recommended Posts

I've seen a great looking plugin for downpipes (or downspouts) published by A|F Design - Andrea Facchinello andrea.fno@gmail.com


The publishers instructions are

" Copy the files into your plug-ins folder:

/Users/[username]/Library/Application Support/VectorWorks/[version]/Plug-Ins "


On my MacBookPro that path doesn't end in a file named plugins but rather three files named Gobos, Library and Textures.

/Users/[username]/Library/Application Support/VectorWorks2019/ Gobos or Library or textures.


I've never installed a plugin before and have NO IDEA what I am doing.


Any help is appreciated.

Different plugins are installed in different ways depending on the developer, but in general if you don't see a "Plug-ins" folder, you can create one and it will work just fine. You should completely close Vectorworks before doing a plugin installation however and relaunch it after you finish copying the files.
