- PowerBook85.sit (36k)
I developed the ancestor to this Workspace for Vectorworks 8 when I was
working a PowerBook 5300 with a small screen, so it's designed to be
compact. These days I have the luxury of a much bigger screen, but I
still like this workspace for its compactness and more keyboard
shortcuts. After unStuffing it, place the file in your Workspaces
folder, launch Vectorworks, and select the new Workspace from the File
menu. You can also download (60k) a JPEG of the
shortcuts mapped to the keyboard.
- PowerBook9.sit (61k)
This is the successor to the above Workspace, and is designed for use
with Vectorworks ARCHITECT with LANDMARK 9 (which I currently use).
Most or all of the keyboard commands are the same, so you should be
able to use the above-linked keyboard map. This has not yet been
updated for version 9.5 (and it might not need to be).
- PowerBookX.sit (61k)
The latest version of my personal Workspace, this one is for
Vectorworks ARCHITECT with RenderWorks. Many of the keyboard shortcuts
are the same, but I've updated the keyboard
(108k), which can also be viewed here.

Vectorworks files to and from DXF and DWG formats.

'Vectorworks Default', open it, save it as Stationery, and place it in
the Templates folder of the application folder.
