Join Jim LaPier for an in-depth discussion in this video Workspace settings, part of Up and Running with Vectorworks.
…With the numerous pallets and tools in Vectorworks,…we want to make sure we can easily locate the tools we need at any given time.…To help this, we can move our pallets to our liking and add or move tools to…suit our workflow as well as saving the pallet displays for easy recall later.…We go to Tools > Workspaces and Workspace Editor.…For this lesson, we're going to edit a copy of the current workspace so we don't…mess with the default settings, and we're going to name this one Lynda_1 and say OK.…
From here, we can drag tools into the tool sets and…see that they show up in the tool set preview.…We can also select a tool and…press the delete key to remove it from the tool palette.…This does not delete the tool from the program,…only its visibility in that particular menu or tool set.…We may want a strip-down workspace for a specific task, like creating a basic site…plan without all the tools available in the landmark tool sets, or…maybe we want to combine tool set, only including the tools that we…use every day that we may call something like common tools.…
