Vectorworks 2021- Importing Classes

Question

I upgraded to Vectorworks 2021 and it won't let me import classes from other files anymore.  Both documents in question are in 2021 already.  I can get to the window for Import and I can pick the file but then it won't let me select the classes I want in the window.

@SKSThis seems to be working for me. Can you please confirm what Operating System you are on?

 

 

It sounds like this isn't what you are running into, but if the files already contain the same classes, the list will be blank.

Mac OS Catalina version 10.15.6. I have the box checked for "only show classes that aren't in document" so the list is the list of the classes I don't have but... I can't select them

Just to rule out anything related to it being file specific, can you try just creating two new documents...

In file one, make the classes A, B, and C.

In file two, make the classes 1, 2, and 3.

Save Both.

Try the importing of the classes again with these?

 

On my end, I get a list of classes when doing this, and any classes I have highlighted import properly in my testing so far.

Did the buttons change or something?

I can't click on the class name to highlight it - everything shows up as it should but I can't select it.

 

Oh - it works but I can only import the top class one at a time?  I used to be able to bulk select.

I can still select multiple classes by using Shift+Click or Command+Click. I just checked in 2020, and it seemed to function the same way.

I just tried and still can't...

I went from 2019 to 2021 because 2020 was never able to open on my computer so not sure if this is a feature that got changed during 2020.

If VW2020 would not open on your computer, it tells me that you have a problem with your computer. So even if VW2021 does open, it is likely that you STILL have a problem with your computer and that same problem could be causing your issues.

 

Are you on Mac or Windows?

Mac.  I spent a long time trying to figure this out with VW support and the only solution they came up with was to create a new user on my computer to ONLY run VW.  Which... sort of defeats the purpose... so I ended up staying in 2019.
