Where is the 'legacy tab'

 

Document Settings 3rd (?) Tab

Because you have a new file that is not contaminated with objects

assigned to legacy Screen Plane or old school Unified View Settings,

like UV off.

If the file/template would already contain such things, 2D legacy mode

would be activated automatically.

when it is absolutely essential?

 

It depends,

some found already one of the new VW 2022 Workflow Features that also

do what they need or general other Workflows that were even more

comfortable.

But if you need to show DLs at different scales and/or even to print from DLs

or such things, you may need to activate 2D legacy mode.

That was no rant.

Not from me either.

 

(I just wanted to pack in that I was never a friend of Unified View off

(lots of confusion for new users) or Screen Plane)

 

As I am so happy that (theoretically) VW 2022 will work without.

And happy that there is still the option for those who want to keep it.

Just curious...   Without disabling unified view, where do you do draw 2D details in the 3D workspace, especially if they are at different scales? We make layers just for 2d Details, various scales.  This enables things to more easily move from file to file...

 

One option is to make everything a symbol.  But making everything symbols is a little confusing for the average user.

With Unified View off, you can still have Design Layers at different scales... You just can't view them simultaneously. Vectorworks will only display visible layers that are the same scale as the Active Layer.

I am not experienced with detailing.

 

But isn't there any way to create these from a Source VP on SLs

and draw the Detail over in Annotation Layer ?

 

I know, for Sections, people put generated Sections VP on a Design Layer,

Annotate on DL, but finally create an overall SLVP for plan creation and printing.

OK, Sections may have the same scale as Plans.

Details may differ.

But does not the Zoom Level of the DL will show the correct Text/Dimension/... Sizes ?
