How To Get Better at VectorWorks

If you are just starting with VectorWorks you might be wondering how to get better, how long will it be until you understand this new program. The answer lies in Perseverance... You have to keep working on VectorWorks everyday and you will get it.

For some people using VectorWorks is the first time that they have drawn with a computer. Do you remember how long it took you to learn to draw the first time? This is no different. You are learning a new way to draw, so you need to learn a new way to think about drawing. Keep at it!

What Are Preferences?

Preferences in VectorWorks are user choices that can change the way that VectorWorks appears to work, can change the way that drawings appear and can control some of the keyboard shortcuts.There are two sorts of Preferences in VectorWorks, VectorWorks Preferences that affect all the files and Document Preferences that control settings specific to a file. To find preferences, go to the Menu Bar and choose:

File > Preferences > VectorWorks Preferences..., or
File > Preferences > Document Preferences...

There are several preferences to choose from and the choices depend on your way of drawing. So try out different preferences and see which ones suit you.
