Join Jim LaPier for an in-depth discussion in this video Tool palettes, part of Learning Vectorworks (2014).
…Palettes are dockable windows which hold different tools you can use…in Vectorworks.…The Object palette is very useful and I almost always have it open and visible.…In the right vertical of my screen,…I have the Object palette here, which has the Shape and…Data tabs, as well as the Render tab, if you have Renderworks installed.…Aside from telling you all of the properties of the object you…have selected, as well as a count of objects selected, the class and…layer of an object, you can also see the geometric properties like length,…width, rotation, and area and perimeter.…The Object palette is also incredibly helpful in that it allows you to…modify the values of these fields so…you can modify the width of this rectangle by typing in four and press Enter.…
These fields are highly intelligent, and forgiving.…Allowing you to enter in everything, from numbers to numbers with units,…like feet or centimeters.…To even math expressions like adding two to this value.…And pressing Return.…You can even mix and match units, like adding three centimeters to four inches.…
