VW2020 Hidden Template File in MacOS ~library/default/template

Recommended Posts



I have a number of older drawing templates which I want to remove from the template folder in the library, however when I go into the folder ~library/default/templates there only the files relating to Architect/Spotlight/landmark etc. When I create a new template I can see the above plus all my old files.When I create a new drawing, all of the old templates are there to choose from but I want to get rid of the older files.


How can I do this if the Finder cannot see them. I have used the 'show hidden files' command ie CMD/Shft/. which shows some hidden files in the parent folder but not the ~library/default/templates.


Any ideas?

See in the Vectorworks Preference dialog, tab "User Folders".




First, is the user folder the one your mean by describing "~library/default/templates"?


Second, are there any workgroup folders where the files could be hidden?


Last check the corresponding folder in the program folder. Would they be there, for any reason?
