Find what you're looking for quickly. Common controls are all within easy reach.
New Heads-up Data Display
The new heads-up data display puts the action where the cursor is, allowing you to quickly create and edit objects to exact dimensions. Need a 22" line at 43 degrees? Simply click to start the line. Next, type 22" to set the length. Then, tab over and enter 43 to define the angle. Finally, press Enter or click to end. Drawing in VectorWorks has never been this fast.
New View Bar
The new View bar simplifies the interface and improves usability by centralizing VectorWorks' many organization and viewing controls in one convenient location.
Object Selection Highlighting
To make selecting and reshaping objects easier, selected objects now highlight-handles are reserved to indicate reshape points/grips. Highlighting makes it easy to see selected objects at any zoom level and removes confusion when reshaping objects with overlapping handles. Highlight colors are completely customizable. And, you can choose different highlighting appearances for objects on active layers, objects on inactive layers, and locked objects.
Saved Tool Preferences and Settings
Set up VectorWorks just the way you like, and, the next time you start a session, you'll be ready to draw. To save you time, tool modes, tool preferences, constraints settings, and the settings within some dialog boxes and their screen position are saved across sessions. You can also set many alert dialog boxes to "always do the selected action," which suppresses them, so they don't interrupt your workflow.
Automatic Object Centering When Editing
For easier object editing, VectorWorks 2008 automatically centers objects in the middle of the screen when in an edit mode or when switching views, so you don't have to manually adjust the view to fit to the objects after a view change.
Faster Editing with Object-sensitive Context Menus
Many of the object context menus have been customized to display the logical operations you're likely to need for each object. So, when you right-click on an object, you're presented with a helpful set of commands that are specific to that type of object. For example, if you right-click on a text block, you can edit, format, or even check the text spelling-which saves you the trouble of locating the right commands. Or, if you right-click on a symbol, you can replace the symbol or edit its 2D or 3D view.
New Modern Icons
The VectorWorks icons have been updated and now have a new, modern look, which make them more consistent, easier to identify, and easier to view and select at high screen resolutions.
Printable Keyboard Shortcuts Guide
You can easily export and print a list of all the available tools, commands, keyboard shortcuts, and reserved keys for each workspace-a good reference tool for existing users and great learning aid for new employees.
You'll be amazed at the things you'll be able to do with the new features and improvements to VectorWorks Designer 2008 drafting capabilities.
Rotatable 2D Views
A long-requested feature, the new Rotate Plan command allows you to rotate the page to make it easy to work on parts of a design that lie at odd angles, while still drawing orthogonally.
New Rotation Modes for 2D Tools
New rotation modes for objects such as rectangles, ovals, and text. These objects retain their object types when rotated. For example, a rotated rectangle is a still rectangle, not a polygon, so you can control its height and width using the Object Info palette.
New Move/Duplicate/Distribute by Points Tool
Users switching from AutoCAD will love this feature. With VectorWorks 2008, you can quickly move an object by clicking any two points on screen. New modes allow you to move by points, duplicate by points, or distribute objects evenly between two points. This new tool works on 2D and 3D objects, as well as symbols in walls.
New Polygonal Selection Mode
New polygonal selection and reshape modes aka, Fence Selection for you AutoCAD switchers, makes complex selections easier. These options give you more flexibility than the marquee selection mode and are faster than freehand selection mode.
Improved 2D Reshape
You can now reshape 2D objects by deleting multiple vertex points at one time-a huge time saver when simplifying polylines. And, you can reshape, move, and delete holes from polylines. This works on all 2D polylines and 3D objects that are based on 2D polylines such as extrudes, hardscapes, floor, and roof faces.
New 2D/3D Duplicate Along Path Command
A new Duplicate Along Path command replaces the old tool. In addition to being more robust and easier to use, the new command works with 3D objects. A new button on the Duplicate Along Path dialog box makes it easy to run "what if" scenarios by previewing results before you commit to the values.
Over 180 New Marker Styles
End markers are very personal design choices. VectorWorks Designer 2008 offers many more marker types and editing options, so you can fine tune markers to your exact specifications. Plus, you can now assign different marker shapes to either end of an object or quickly choose a marker style that displays at both ends.
Specifiable Dashed Line Lengths
Improvements to the Edit Dash dialog box make it easier to define dash styles. Now you can define the dash length and gap length by typing exact values-allowing more precision than the old-style sliders.
New Polygonal and Circular Modes for Clip Tool
For many edits, the improved Clip tool is much faster. New modes provide added functionality to the Clip tool; you can now clip with polygonal and circular marquee shapes.
Improved Tile Command
A new checkbox on the Tile dialog box gives you a choice of converting the tile symbols to groups. Converting tile symbols to groups means you can control the graphical attributes of the tile pattern with the Attributes palette.
New Referencing Workflows and Improved Library Management
Take advantage of new resources and viewport enhancements that provide more flexibility and freedom when working in a referenced design environment.
Design Layer Viewports
You asked for it, and now you've got it! With VectorWorks Designer 2008, you'll be able to create viewports on design layers. Compared to traditional layer links, design layer viewports provide an easier and more robust way to handle linked and referenced views. VectorWorks design layer viewports:
* Are able to represent more than one layer
* Allow layer and class visibility control
* Support layer and class overrides
* Are croppable
True File Referencing
Using design layer viewports, you can also create true references to external VectorWorks files, image files, and PDFs. With true referencing, referenced information is not imported into your documents, keeping file sizes smaller, eliminating naming conflicts, and reducing the "clutter" that can occur when layers with many resources are referenced. Design layer viewports also improve workgroup referencing by allowing:
* Quick and easy duplication of referenced information
* Multiple layers to be easily referenced and managed in a single viewport object
* Layer and class visibility control of referenced layers
* Support for layer and class overrides
* Total control over whether layers and classes are imported into the target document
* Persistent positioning, rotating, and cropping of referenced viewports
* Gathering of all referenced drawings into one plot file
* Easy coordination of reference and target document origins
* A streamlined procedure for importing DWG data and keeping it up to date without adding overhead to the VectorWorks drawing.
Other Important Workgroup Referencing Improvements
In addition to the true referencing improvement found in the VectorWorks Design Series products, you'll find many other substantial workgroup referencing improvements:
* For easy management, references are now listed on new tabs in the Organization dialog box and Navigation palette. The new reference tab shows the name of the referenced file, the kind of file being referenced (VectorWorks, PDF, or image), and the status of the references, for example, broken, up-to-date, or out-of-date.
* For faster updates, you can control whether to update all referenced files or only out-of-date files. Plus you can even have VectorWorks automatically check for out-of-date references after a specified period of time. And you can edit the setting for more than one reference at the same time.
* A new option lets you choose whether to save referenced data to disk. Saving referenced data with the document makes the document more portable, but uses more disk space.
* When a referenced layer becomes the active layer or if an object is moved to a referenced layer, a new warning alerts you so you don't inadvertently make changes to a drawing that could be lost when a reference is updated.
* New improvements make it easy to locate and update referenced files, even if they've been moved.
* For added convenience, all referenced files are listed under the Window menu, and you can quickly navigate to and open any referenced files via the Window menu.
New CAD Manager Features
New CAD manager capabilities make it easier to set up, share, back up, and manage VectorWorks content and preferences. CAD managers can easily control where resources and preferences are stored (centrally or locally on individual computers), which means CAD managers can control who can access or edit resources and preferences. And, because custom folders are stored outside the VectorWorks application folder, updating to newer versions or reinstalling VectorWorks will maintain your custom libraries or preferences. The new capabilities also make configuring new machines and maintaining existing machines with your firm's standards a lot easier.
Improved Library Management
You'll be able to build and manage your resources more easily in the VectorWorks Designer 2008. A new Export Resource command allows you to quickly move resources from the active document into another file without having to open the file-another huge time saver.
Resource Browser Improvements
Interface improvements make the Resource Browser easier to use and faster to navigate between library file and document resources:
* The Home button lets you see at a glance if you are viewing resources in the active document or another open drawing or Favorite file, and can quickly display the resources in the active document
* The Up One Level button makes navigation through resource folders easier by allowing you to quickly switch to the resource's "parent" folder
* If desired, the Resource Browser will always display the resources of the active document
From 2-way worksheets to importing and exporting AutoCAD 2007 and 2008 files, VectorWorks 2008 will cuts out extra steps and saves a lot more time.
Two-way editing between worksheet and objects in a drawing is now possible in the VectorWorks Designer 2008. Now, when you change an object's data in a worksheet, it will automatically reconfigure the object in the drawing, even for multiple objects.
Edit Multiple Objects in Walls Simultaneously
You can now select multiple objects that are inserted into walls, making it easy to reconfigure and reposition multiple objects at once. You can select multiple objects by shift-clicking, enclosing objects with a selection marquee, and by using the Custom Selection or new Custom Modification commands.
Improved Viewport Workflows
For many of you, using viewports has become essential to your workflow, and working with viewports in VectorWorks Designer 2008 is much easier, thanks to many time-saving improvements.
* Support for Associative Dimensions in Viewport
This improvement to VectorWorks 2008 saves time and reduces drawing errors. Now dimensions in viewports can automatically update as design layer objects change.
* Improved Navigation between Design Layers and Viewports
To navigate seamlessly between viewports and design layers, a new option in the Create Viewport dialog box allows you to maintain your view when navigating from a viewport to a design layer. And, once on the design layer, a new on-screen button makes it easy to navigate back to the viewport from a design layer edit.
* Improved Navigation between Crop and Annotations Modes
This enhancement will make working with viewports easier and faster. Now our view is maintained. So, if zoomed in tight, you'll remain zoomed in as you navigate between the Annotation and Edit Crop modes.
* Control Over Section Viewport Resolution
In section viewports, you can now control the 3D conversion resolution of the curved surfaces separately from the VectorWorks preference. This allows you to keep your 3D conversion resolution set to low to speed display and drawing and increase it for section viewports that require a higher degree of resolution.
* New Viewport Adjust Flipped Text Option
The Adjust Flipped Text option allows you to change flipped text in a viewport without affecting text in other viewports or design layers.
* Viewport Black and White Only Settings
This advanced option for viewports lets you display and print viewports in black and white only, no matter what your document settings are.
* Viewport Layer Overrides
Draw your design once and present it in many different ways with class overrides, and now layer overrides in viewports. Overrides allow you to assign attributes to different viewports without affecting the look of other viewports in a drawing set. Overrides are great for presenting clients different design options, as well as for allowing you to easily create different drawings from your plans.
New options give you more control over your backup files. You can now choose a custom location for your backup files-either locally to your hard drive or centrally to a server. And, you can specify the number of backup copies you want to retain The backups are time stamped for easy reference.
Import Drawing Structure
To make setting up new files faster and easier, you can now import design layers, sheet layers, and classes from other files. We also reduced the number steps when creating new layers and classes.
New Scale Object by Distance Option
A new option in the Scale Object dialog box allows users to easily scale objects by defining a real-world distance. This works on any object, including imported image files, and also eliminates complex calculations when scaling objects.
Saved Stacked Layer View
You can now save the stacked layer status of a document, so the next time you open the document you won't have to "restack" the layers. New stack layer options are also available, so that working in stacked layer mode is even more flexible. This is ideal when you're working between a saved view that you want to see in 3D and design layers you want to see in plan view.
Global Object Editing by Criteria
With the new Custom Modification command, you can simultaneously edit the properties and graphical attributes of multiple objects, regardless of which layer or class they are in, their scale, or their selection or visibility status-it even works for objects in walls. Being able to quickly select multiple objects and perform simultaneous edits will save you a lot of time.
Support for SketchUp 6
VectorWorks Designer 2008 adds support for SketchUp 6 giving you compatibility with the latest version and additional access to the latest content from Google's 3D Warehouse
By supporting IFC, VectorWorks Designer users can share BIM data with other IFC-compliant programs. This data can then be used throughout a construction project's life cycle for things like costing and quantity surveying, energy analysis, structural design and detailing, facility management and space analysis, and building performance modeling, such as clash detection.
Support for AutoCAD 2007/2008
VectorWorks now supports all AutoCAD 2007/2008 products. New import/export options allow you to import and export DWG/DXF files in AutoCAD's native 2007/2008 file format.
Support for Worksheets in DXF/DWG Export
In VectorWorks Designer 2008, embedded worksheets can be exported along with the drawing. Worksheets images are exported as blocks of lines and text so they can be edited after export.
Easier Management of Imported AutoCAD Layers
A new option in the DXF/DWG Import Options dialog box allows you append a prefix to AutoCAD layers imported into VectorWorks. Assigning a prefix allows you to group imported layers, making them easier to identify and mange.
Workspaces in VectorWorks 2008 are cross platform, making it easier share custom workspaces across the firm. It is also faster to launch, and switch between workspaces.
Macintosh OSX Spotlight Search Integration
This new feature will save you a lot of time when you're searching for VectorWorks files that contain certain text. Apple's Spotlight search engine makes it easy to find text within text objects inside of VectorWorks files. Instead of opening up individual files, you can now use Apple's Spotlight search tool to quickly find the VectorWorks files you want.
New Support for Bookmarks in PDFs
Writing bookmarks into exported PDF document providing an easy way to find and browse sheet layers, viewports, and saved views.
Easier to Customize Title Block Objects
A new Use as Title Block Only option for your drawing border allows you to show the title block only. For added flexibility, you have more control over where title blocks are positioned in relation to the drawing border.
New and Improved Objects
In VectorWorks Designer 2008, you have more options than ever. You'll find improved wall features, and new plant and lighting options. Not to mention high-end furniture, door, window, flooring, appliance, texture, and color libraries.
Architectural and Interior Design Improvements
Classable Wall Components
Wall components can now be put into their own classes, making it easier for you to control the component's graphical attributes and visibility. By classing wall components, you can easily showing or hiding wall components so you easily create framing, structural and finish plans from the same set of walls.
The Ability to Show Wall Components in Section Views
Walls can now display their components in section views. And, because components are classed you can easily adjust their visibility depending on how detailed you want your section views to appear.
Draw and Edit Walls in 3D
Now you can draw and edit walls in 3D just as easily as you can in 2D. New 3D wall technology allows you to quickly create, move, join, and reshape walls in any 3D view. And improvements to the 3D Symbol Insertion tool make it possible to insert symbols into a wall while in a 3D view.
Exterior Wall Dimensioning Improvements
The Exterior Wall Dimensioner (i-n-c-l-u-d-e)s T-joined walls and can dimension doors and windows in exterior walls by rough or masonry opening. Exterior walls can be dimensioned by outside edge or center line, and dimensions are associative. Overall, dimensions can now associate with wall components, and are easier to modify.
Wall Replacement Improvements
The Wall Replacement dialog box has been enhanced to (i-n-c-l-u-d-e) options to replace a wall's height, class, and texture.
Refined Create Spaces from Walls Command
From a network of walls, you can now create a gross space object that represents the entire area of floor or slab, instead of individual room spaces.
Space Object Improvements
A space can now be automatically defined by simply clicking into any area that is bounded by walls. Spaces can be drawn as gross or net, and for U.S. users, they can be drawn according to the new United States GSA "Space Validation" requirement. As the design changes, spaces can be easily updated.
New display options allow you to display additional fields in the "space name" tag, as well as rename any of the fields, such as "GAREA" to "GROSS AREA." In addition to room finish information, you can now add extended IFC data sets and GSA space data to the Space object.
Improved 2D Stair Graphic
This new stairs option allows users to display the portions of stairs beyond a 2D break as dashed.
British and Japanese Standards for Structural Shapes
The steel shapes objects have been consolidated, and now support AISC (US Standard) BSI (British standard) and JIS (Japanese standard)shapes.

Improved Plant Tool
A redesigned plant tool makes it easier to create and manage plant objects. Plants in VectorWorks Designer now behave like other symbols in VectorWorks. You can easily import them from other drawings, as well as export them to your firm's plant symbol library. And, new right-click editing makes it easy to edit the 2D look, 3D look, and plant data.
Standalone Plant Database
An improved plant database complements the improvements to the Place Plant tool in VectorWorks Designer. The plant database is now a stand-alone, full-featured database. It's much easier to import new plant data from external sources or existing plant databases, and perform sophisticated plant searches. In addition, plant records can (i-n-c-l-u-d-e) both botanical data and a pictorial representation. Without leaving the database, you can quickly navigate to sites such as Google™ Images, Wikipedia, or university or government sources, such as the USDA plants database. Now, it's easy to create custom plant lists or catalogs that are linked directly to the Place Plant tool.
Support for Geo-referenced Image Files
VectorWorks Designer can now import geo-referenced image files, giving you a great new presentation capability. Easily overlay GIS images (bitmap maps, aerial photographs, etc.) with GIS .shp (Shape) data to create compelling and informative presentations. Because the images and .shp data are geo-referenced, the imported images and .shp data come in perfectly aligned.

Easy access colors from pre-set color palettes that ship with VectorWorks. You'll find color palettes from leading manufactures like Pantone, Benjamin Moore®, Sherwin-Williams®, Resene ®, and more.
Object-based Opacity on Macintosh and Windows
With object opacity, you can easily adjust the transparency of individual 2D objects with the Attributes palette, or by using class attributes. Class overrides are also supported in viewports.
Layer Opacity and Anti-aliasing on Windows
Like Macintosh users, Windows users can now apply opacity to layers and also select to use anti-aliasing, which smoothes out jagged edges on diagonal and curved objects for a better on-screen display.
Improved Hidden-line Rendering Performance
Under-the-hood improvements have decreased hidden-line rendering time, on both design layers and viewports, by as much as 50 percent. Hidden-line renderings are also more memory-efficient, so files with cached viewports can be substantially smaller. And when rendering in dashed-hidden-line mode, dashed lines follow the perimeter of curved objects.
New Gray Layer and Class Print Option
Different printers print gray levels differently. A new option adjusts the level of gray for grayed layers and classes, to give you more control over your output.
New Wood Texture and Image Files from arcitex®
111 new high-quality wood materials from arcitex® will add another dimension to your drawings and models.
Support for 3Dconnexion SpaceNavigator™ Support
