    It looks like you forgot to add the link to the post?


    Also does this SP have compatibility with mojave now?

    After a week of not being able to edit or enter any text in OSX VW on Mojave, SP5 has now made this possible.  However trying to use the polygon tool with or without a fill gives a 10-15 minute spinning ball.  Extreme frustration and lost income.  Will I change to another CAD program after sticking with VW since MiniCad days.  I may have to if another week goes by...

    I'm unable to reproduce the issue you are having using Mojave and 2018 SP5.

    Could you try moving your user folder to your desktop and restarting Vectorworks to see if the issue persists?

    Updated to SP5 (Win10) and now NONE of my files that have DWG files imported into them will open. As soon as the file opens, Vectorworks immediately crashes and closes. I can even start a new file using my template file because it was based off a DWG file. Does anyone have a workaround? How do I revert back to SP4? It was working just fine. Never should have updated.... Please help!
