The room finishes are also read from the user folder and work group folder. Here the path (on Mac) where you find the text file containing the finishes in the User folder:
/Users/UserName/Library/Application Support/VectorWorks/2011/Libraries/Defaults/Space/Space – Room Finishes
If the same folder for example “Ceiling” contains identical text files with names of finishes, then the one stored in the user folder has the highest priority, followed by the text file in the work group folder, followed by the one in the application folder. This is the same system used also for all the other default content and default resources.
