Publish command is printing sheets in reverse order

Recommended Posts

In Vectorworks 2020 when I select multiple sheets to print the order gets reversed.
In the attached image on the left is a list of sheets 1 to 5 when I select them and send them to the publish list on the right the order is reversed from 5 to 1.
This means I have to select each sheet one a time to get them in the correct order.  Not a problem for a small project but most of my projects have 70 to 100 sheets.
Anybody have an idea what is causing this?

you can activate "by name" order by clicking the "name" header, you should see little arrow on the right hand side of the header

Clicking on the name button did reorder them for me.  But I would still like to know why it is reversing the order of the drawings.   This was not the case in previous versions of VW.

I just tried and it is not reversing order for me here. VW2020 SP2, Mac OS.15.

 

What happens if you create a new file and add 5 blank sheet layers (Create 1 and duplicate 4 times)? Do those show reversed? If not, it is something with your file or your template file.

 

If they do show reverses, check your printer drivers and see if there is something there set to print backwards. The printer driver should not have anything to do with the Publish, but you never know.

Is this 2020 native or from previous versions of VW? Just wondering if something is "lost in translation".

Pat,

 

If you look at the image in my post you can see that the first thing I did was to start a new document with five blank sheets.  I did this to see if it was an issue with my file.  I'm working on a Window's 7 machine,  I opened the same file on a Mac and we didn't have the same issue.

I have the same problem.

Impossible to print in the desire order tough because it reverse it automatically when I hit Publish button.

Win 10 pro V2020 sp2 Australia. ( Btw this update is a nightmare, crash 10 times a day. I spend half of the day hitting Ctrl+S)

Same Problem...

 

Added Sheets one by one in revers order solved the problem

notice the sheet#  on the right side column is equivalent to the order you add them - This will be the order of the sheets in the generated PDF

 

Hope by next SP problem will be solved...

We have discovered that if you individually transfer the sheets over to publish in the order that you want then they do not automatically reverse. This is long winded and annoying but only result so far.

 

We contacted Vectorworks Service Select who said they have no record of this being a problem.

What? No record?

I am doing what you are doing and it is annoying.

 

I sent Premier VW Service and email.

What? No record?   That is not true  Nina in this thread  said it is a known issue and they are working on it.

It was most likely an oversight from our support specialist. My apologies.
On the other hand, this issue has been fixed in SP3. Release date mid-March. 😉
