Viewport Advanced Properties

Recommended Posts

I've used Vectorworks for 30 years. I'm now on Ver. 2017 latest update. I'd used Viewport Advanced Properties to set line weights, types, and many other things since 25 years ago until 2 weeks ago, the Viewport Advanced Properties dialogue box I've got is this one. Help please?

I think I solved this one myself. The Advance Viewport Properties dialogue box I showed above appears if the viewport is on a designer layer. When it's on the sheet layer it is different.


However I have another question. I thought that with previous versions I could change more properties in the AVP, e.g. from solid lines to dashed lines and from solid fill to no fill, which worked very well for a roof outline over floor below on the site plan. Am I mistaken?

Hi Jonathan,


Thank you for your reply. However, 36:31 is the end of your movie, but it's not about class overrides  before that. Perhaps it's a typo? Or perhaps because my version 2017 is not the same?




yes, sorry 31:20, I have the class settings walls.
