Texture Visibility on Floor Objects Zoom-dependent


On top of my main Floor Object, I created a 1/16" thick Floor Object for a bathroom and added a floor tile texture to it.  Nothing.  I edited the Floor Object (which is necessary to get Floor Objects and even Roof Faces to display their textures (VWIS078)) but, still, nothing.  Finally, when I zoomed out, the texture became visible.  When I zoomed back in again... it disappeared.


I seems that the more one zooms out, the greater the difference between the top surfaces of floor objects needs to be in order for their textures to display...  VWIS169

Hi @willofmaine,


Please can you try going to Tools > Options > Vectorworks Preferences > Display > change Navigation Graphics to Good Performance and Compatibility.


If that doesn't work, would you be able to share a copy of the file (either here or on a private message) so that I can take a look.

I don't know, I can't seem to consistently replicate this issue this morning.  I believe it happened before and after I updated to SP1, yet I haven't even restarted VW since updating.  If it happens again, I'll try to send something (ultimately, I cut holes in the main slab and made the bathroom slabs the same depth, tops of all Floor Objects at exactly the same elevation - in which case; having done that, there have been no display issues...).  Thanks.
