    window sill and glazing bar glitches

    @Cadplan ArchitectureHi, not too familiar with the universal windows as we use Windoor in Aus. Looking at the windows when you put one in a wall the sash flips. There are 2 sills, internal and external and can be adjusted separately. You may already know all this but anyways Maybe this assists? Window.vwx

    Elements not rendering

    Hard to solve without some more info. Some things to look at: 1) Make sure extrude has a solid fill. Probably does because OGL works. 2)Is it an image texture? Renders can go bad if source image too big. Try this: Duplicate the texture, then replace the source with a lower resolution version of the image, eg about 1mb max. If that helps use the new version. If more resolution needed, try new texture with say double the size/resolution, etc until you find the limit. If lots of image textures in the scene, then try reducing source resolution in all or most of them. 3)If in Sheet Layer, are the desired lights switched on? Or better yet: Can you create a file with the problem to post here? eg Copy/Paste in Place the extrude into a new, blank file. If problem shows in the new file, post it so we can troubleshoot. If problem not in new file, try copy/paste ALL objects into a new blank file (but not a template file) - try adding the objects layer by layer, and test each time until problem shows - post it in that state. If/When it shows up, probably some corrupt object in the most recent paste (not the extrude) is causing problem. Eliminate (Cut, then Paste in Place into another new file so you can get them back) in groups until render works. Start with the likely suspects - objects/symbols brought forward from earlier vwx versions, things imported/converted from other software, large complex PIOs might be taxing your graphics card (too many tables/chairs/place settings, massive softgoods, drape surfaces, hundreds of lights, etc). If no problem when everything copied to new file, then continue work in the new file and archive the old one. Sorry, you would have to remake all the SLVPs, too. Trash the old one when confident that everything is captured and working as expected. -B

    Position Summary / Minimum Circuits needed

    Right, seems there should be some work-around. This seems like a common thing to calculate circuits needed - or dimmers needed per position.

    Elements not rendering

    I created an extruded object to create a floor then applied a texture. It renders in open GL but will not render in either fast Renderworks or Final Quality Renderworks.
  6. Hi. Maybe someone has?

    Snap Point Hierarchy

    At least PIOs too (?) Like Wall Components have Settings for Master Snap Points.
  11. It would be helpful if we could organize and filter saved views. I do my best to name these so they appear near each other, but it's a mess, and I still have many miles to go with this drawing.

    Snap Point Hierarchy

    Master Snap points are only applicable to Symbols, correct?

    macOS Mojave (10.14) Compatibility

    of course: imac 21'' 2014 fusion drive - running vectorworks 2019 on mojave - on synology in menu fileservices i deactivated afp and activated smb with maximum opportunity to smb3 in menu options. i followed a german blog about serverconnections synology to mac for mac os higher than high sierra. before i had the problem that mounting under afp always were very slow and time was passing by by waiting for files being displayed. since changing to smb in general, even using project sharing is much faster - and the connection to the server got a boost. for me it worked. try it. for me it worked well. small office with 4 clients.

    macOS Mojave (10.14) Compatibility

    We are also making this step, reluctantly it has to be said, since we have no issues under AFP but the move to Mojave is certainly putting us under pressure from IT support to change to SMB. Meanwhile, in the real world... The trouble we have is that most of our clients are not in a position to update all workstations to Mojave and VW2019 at the same time.

    macOS Mojave (10.14) Compatibility

    Intriguing post but can you please explain what you are running, on what and how???...

    macOS Mojave (10.14) Compatibility

    i've had fabulous experiences with switching from mac AFP to the (reworked, new) SMB: mounting the server and accessing files is much faster. on my synology station, just setting to only offer SMB and the same in vectorworks.

    NEW- Vision online training seminar

    Forgive me if this is a naive question. Will there be training videos not behind a pay wall? If the goal is to get new users to check out Vision or quell potential fears about a steep learning curve, it seems like those videos want to be readily available to everyone. I understand advanced topics maybe being special training for VSS members only, but by VW's own admission, very few spotlight users use Vision and there is strong interest is seeing that number rise. Creating a great video about how to use Vision and then charging $150 to watch it, seems like a counterintuitive approach. But perhaps there are other videos planned. I hope at the very least, this video will be available for free to beta testers. If I can't confidently use a program, I'm not really going to recommend it anyone else. thanks, Cory

    Student License Extension Request

    @JuanP Hi, I had already uploaded it before but now I reloded it, hopefully now you could see it. Please let me know if it shows up, if not I'm going to contact vectorworks.pl, thank you!
  22. I'm still trying to learn my way around the software, and I don't believe I have used a symbol yet. If I did, it was accidental. No borders of any type have appeared. This thread mentioned a "working plane." I did a google image search of the term, and it surely resembles the pink square I'm seeing. I just don't understand how I'm activating it, why it seems to make the rest of the drawing disappear, or how to get rid of the pink square after I accidentally make it show up.
  23. I think you might be going into an edit mode on a symbol and you have "show other objects while in edit modes" turned off. Do you also see a gold border when this happens? The numeric keypad can also kick you into a 3D view. Zero on the numeric keypad gets you back to Top/Plan.

    MacBook Pro issue

    HI I just purchased a 2018 MacBook Pro 2.7ghz quad-core i7 with 16 gb ram with Intel Iris Plus Graphics 655 1536 MB with MacOS Mojave 10.14.5 running vectroworks18 I was running Vectorworks 18 on a 2017 iMac before this and had no issues whatsoever. I now try to work on a file on the MacBook Pro and I can't even edit text without it freezing up. is there a compatibility issue? Thank you for any assistance Matt

    Fundamentals 2017 exporting pdf

    I'm sorry, but it wasn't included in Vectorworks Fundamentals 2017. Are you on a Mac or PC? If you have a Mac, you can use File > Print, and then select PDF at the bottom left of the dialogue box.

    CL - B type link bars

    @Brent.A I just sent you a DM with a file that should help you out.

    CL - B type link bars

    Hey Justin, TY for taking the time. So I discovered screencasting...lol. Went to make my first video to share, then dollars to donuts I was able to rotate as I recorded. Now my remaining issue seems to be establishing the linkbar as a structural connection. Linked below is my video to illustrate that. Any guidance? https://www.dropbox.com/s/6v7lqilx5y41ztr/2019-05-24 12-53-22.mp4?dl=0

    Fundamentals 2017 exporting pdf

    Thank you. I have no old workspaces. I had no ideal this basic function was not included in Fundamentals 2017, as I was told by VW sales, "it will do all you need". Very disappointed!
