Interactive Workshops January 2017 – Resource Manager

The Resource Manager is an extremely important part of your Vectorworks interface. It allows you to look for resources (hatches, line styles, wall styles, plants,  et cetera). So it’s important that we understand how to use it because it is will make you more efficient and improve your productivity.

cadmovie_1610-01 – What’s New In Vectorworks 2017 – Part 1

Resource Manager – When you look at the new Resource Manager, it may look like an updated Resource Browser, but it is much more than that. The Resource Manager has been embedded throughout Vectorworks. this means that whenever you look for a resource, the resource manager will appear showing you the best results. The resource manager can look for files on your computer, and your favourites, in your user folder, and your workgroup folder, in the Vectorworks libraries (some are on your computer and some are online), and in the Vectorworks subscription libraries (VSS).
