    macOS High Sierra (X 10.13) Compatibility with Vectorworks Versions 2018 and 2017

    With the release of macOS High Sierra on Sept. 25, we are working to resolve a few compatibility issues with the most recent versions of Vectorworks. Here’s what you need to know.

    Vectorworks 2018 

    Vectorworks 2018 runs relatively normally on macOS High Sierra, but we recommend that you wait until Service Pack 1 is released before upgrading your Mac operating system. Updating to Vectorworks 2018 Service Pack 1 is recommended for best compatibility, as we have made several fixes. A few issues remain after the Service Pack 1 update.

    macOS High Sierra issues resolved with Vectorworks 2018 Service Pack 1

    • Tool names do not display properly with “Icons and Text” setting.
    • Save and Open dialog boxes do not display properly after resizing.

    • The Package Manager crashes occasionally.
    • The Site Protection Server does not launch properly.
    • The Plant Database application, which runs separately through Filemaker, crashes occasionally.

    Vectorworks 2017

    Vectorworks 2017 has some issues when running on macOS High Sierra; we are currently conducting extensive testing and may encounter additional issues. We recommend that you wait until Service Pack 5 for Vectorworks 2017 before upgrading to macOS High Sierra.

    Please look into copy and paste as well. Everything pastes as a PDF image on my System

    However, “Paste in Place” works.
