Version Information

Unicode

Vectorworks 2019 is a Unicode application. Internally, Vectorworks uses UTF-16. To provide easier transition of Vector Scripts, the script engine uses UTF-8 Encoding.

Similarly to Vectorworks 2018, all sources files for Vector Script should be in UTF-8 text file encoding with or without BOM (Byte Order Mark).

In contract to previous version, Vector Script STRING type size was increased from 255 to 2048 bytes, which translates to a different maximum number of characters, depending on the symbols used as in UTF-8 some symbols can be represented by 4 bytes (for example)

Mac File Path Change

The Vectorscript functions VS:GetFile, VS:PutFile, VS:GetFolderPath and VS:FindFileInPluginFolder return a file path. For Vectorworks 2019, on the Macintosh platform, the path returned will be in the Posix format, rather than in the deprecated HFS format. If a Vectorscipt calls one of these functions and passes the file path returned into another Vectorscript function, no change should be needed. If a Vectorscipt calls one of these functions and checks that an HFS file path is returned on the Macintosh platform, the Vectorscript will probably need to be modified.
