Join Jim LaPier for an in-depth discussion in this video Essential preferences, part of Up and Running with Vectorworks.
…Preferences are controls and variables which allow you to specify how you…want the program to operate as a default.…This includes things like how the cursor reacts, the colors of the environment, and…how often you want the program to save for you,…as well as the folders you want to use when opening or saving files and projects.…Not going to go through every option, but…lets look at the preferences menu here under the application menu.…Under Edit, we can control values like if the wheel on your mouse zooms…the drawing or what modifier keys you use with the arrow keys.…Display has some options, like a black background, which I personally find…a little bit easier on the eyes when I'm looking at the screen for a long time.…
Session has some controls like session timing,…as well as what happens to the Crash Reports if the application does crash.…3D allows you to dial in the rendering for performance on your machine,…which is wonderful if you're working on an older CPU or laptop that…might not have the graphics capabilities of a high-powered desktop system.…
