Join Jim LaPier for an in-depth discussion in this video Entering values, part of Up and Running with Vectorworks.
…Vectorworks tries to make your design process as straightforward as possible.…And to that end, the application will do its best to take as much of…the unnecessary math out of your hands.…A great example of this is the ability to enter numbers and…expressions in the fields of any dialogue or pallet.…The most commonly used of these is the object palette.…Here we have two rectangles of different dimensions.…I'll select the top rectangle here that I want to add two inches to the width of.…I'll go up here to the width and simply type in plus two and hit Return,…and we can see that it added two inches to the width.…
I can also type plus two CM, press Return, and…we can see that it added in two centimeters for me.…Note that even though the rest of the units are in inches,…it understands centimeters and adds the two together regardless.…Another area of entering values that we need to look at is when drawing objects.…I'll go up to the line tool.…Click a point in space and we can see the values for…the length and the angle of the line I'm drawing.…
