OpenGL renders geometry in symbols in false position

Kaare Baekgaard


I suppose this is a known issue, but I cannot find it in any forum:


in certain files, opengl misrepresents geometry in symbols by drawing it in the wrong location.


The geometry is seen to jump when going from wireframe to opengl - but it cannot be selected in its new, false location.


When copy-pasted into a new file, the geometry is represented correctly in opengl.



I am not sure, but I remember this issue also occurring inside solid operations, that are not part of symbols.



I have seen this in several versions and also in VW2021.


Is there any fix?

The symptoms described can be caused by a corrupt Workspace file or a Vectorworks Settings file in the Vectorworks User Folder. Try backing up (copying elsewhere) your Vectorworks User Folder, then deleting it. Might have to go as far as a full Resetting Vectorworks Preferences process. 


Less likely, but could definitely be yet another symptom of having 'far out objects.'
