  1. The problem seems to be that it takes more that 5 mins to save, and that during that time, the CPU usage drops right down to 2 or 3 percent, and the task manager registers vectorworks as not responding, the whole computer runs slowly. Are there any ways I can improve this situation?
  2. Thanks vincent, I'll set that up. Monkey - I waited about 5 mins before looking at the program through the task manager, which told me that the program was not responding. To start with, the CPU usage had been very high, but it dropped right down when the program was unresponsive. I've just had a new processor put in too, so it should be quite fast and good... I am ambling along now with frequent backups, so hopefully should be ok. I'll wait and see if it happens on my next project. Thanks Jenny
  3. It does just seem to be this one, I've purged it before, but am doing that again, it is 18MB, but it really has got a lot in it. The architect's background forms about 14MB of it. I haven't had this trouble before with other files, but I am very new to vectorworks (3 weeks in), so I don't know if it's persistant in other files.
  4. Hi, I've copied and pasted into a new drawing this morning, and it has done it again, thankfully I had it backed up this time. I'm using version 2008 SP3 (88670). This is very frustrating! Thanks for your reply
  5. I have been working on a drawing and sometimes saving it successfully, however sometimes when I try to save, vectorworks stops responding, and so I have to shut it down. When I reopen it, the file repairs itself (maybe to the last backup save, I'm not sure), but it calls itself .recover, and it won't let me save it at all or save it as something else. Also a -VWTMP file has appeared in the drawing folder bearing the same name as my troubled drawing. What is going on, and how can I sort it out? Jenny
