  • Apple macOS 10.14 Mojave Compatibility

    Jim Wilson



    Vectorworks, Inc. has released its first Service Pack (SP1) for the Vectorworks 2019 product line. Among a number of enhancements, Vectorworks 2019 SP1 fixes two major bugs introduced with Apple’s recent release of macOS Mojave. 


    While the compatibility between of macOS 10.14 Mojave and Vectorworks has significantly improved, based on our internal testing, we still recommend that all Vectorworks users DO NOT update to Mojave at this time.


    We have reported all macOS Mojave issues uncovered in our testing to Apple. We will continue to work to resolve known issues and release fixes in subsequent service packs. We expect Apple will release an update to Mojave soon. 


    Fixes in Vectorworks 2019 specific to macOS Mojave:

    Significantly improved performance and responsiveness

    Corrected numerous issues related to screen redraw and flickering

    Corrected problems with snapping and constraints, including usage of Shift as a constraint hotkey

    Corrected a number of Object Info Control issues

    Introduced numerous stability enhancements


    Remaining known issues related to macOS Mojave:

    Printing problems with worksheet cell images

    Printing problems with transparency (Workaround: Export to PDF or Image, then print the resulting export)

    Graphics anomalies with custom pop-up controls

    Working Planes palette turns gray, making working plane items invisible

    Resource Manager's title bar turns black and the dialog also flashes black

    Color change when pasting to older versions of Vectorworks (Workaround: Use File > Export to export to the previous version instead of copy/pasting)

    Tool Set icons missing (Vectorworks 2018 specifically)


    In addition to the release of Vectorworks 2019 SP1, we are also working on a macOS Mojave service pack for Vectorworks 2018. We hope to have it available later this fall.
