Hello, I am startin to poke around the new Georeferencing tool in 2020. Overall I'm a newbie in Vectorworks, but have been importing dwg files for a while now, and just selecting the "This file contains georeferenced geometry" checkbox in the import options. Is this all I have to do? I'm still not very familiar with the "internal origin" and "geolocate" options. Is there a quick tutorial on this somewhere I could check? Thanks!!

Hi, I'm sure someone worthier than I will pop up soon but there's an ongoing discussion at:

 I use an older version of VW and for me the best workflow to get data into VW is to import it into QGIS first and export a dw\dxf from that. Saves a lot of thumb-twiddling and anguish.

Hi Anna

There are lovely new features in 2020, which mean that you will see different functionality to the version that @unearthed is using (although thanks for your help @unearthed!)


Actually, your question is timely... I ran a webinar on this just last week, and I hope you will find it useful. You can access it within Vectorworks University, here.
