  1. I'm not sure if this is an issue related to our synology server or if this is being caused by Vectorworks. If I create a file with relative references on a Mac and then open this file on a PC I get notifications that all references are broken. This seems to not be an issue if the references are created on PC and then opened on a Mac. VW 2018 SP3
  2. I'm having an issue where symbols with page units are no longer scaling their image correctly in worksheets after transitioning our templates to 2018. The images below show you their before(2017) and after(2018) behavior. I have not been able to alter these image sizes using any of the available scaling options(auto size, fixed, layer scale, custom scale) for images in the format cells options. Manipulating any of these scaling options only yields these tiny images in the worksheet. Any ideas? thanks.

    Split Tool Crashing VW

    I have not been able to narrow down the specific circumstances, but very consistently using the split tool on lines and polylines immediately crashes VW. This is something we are experiencing office wide in many different files. We are all running VW 2017 SP2 Build 338823, on mac OS Sierra 10.12.3.

    Arc Dimensioning in Rotated Plan View

    What you are describing is the exact issue I'm having. This particular issue also often happens with line types as well (visible while zooming but disappear after)

    Arc Dimensioning in Rotated Plan View

    Yes, I checked all those items and everything looks set correctly. Even if I create a new blank file draw an arc dimension and then set up a rotated plan view the markers disappear. This seems like it's a VW issue and not file specific.
  7. We are having an issue with dimension markers disappearing on all arc dimensions. When viewed in Top/Plan all the dimensions appear normal but when rotating a plan view or veiwports on sheets all the arc dimension markers disappear. Any ideas?

    Vw 2015 cursor odd offset behavior

    I'll give it a shot and report back. I hope it is reproducible otherwise it could be very difficult to track down, unfortunately it can take hours of jumping back and forth for the issue to start.

    Vw 2015 cursor odd offset behavior

    Was this included in SP3? I am now experiencing some strange cursor behavior. When in a design layer my cursor will not interact with any objects on screen, moving to a sheet layer control comes back. The really strange part is that when VW is not the active application if I hover over objects they highlight with typical selection behavior but once I click on the VW window making it again the active application the pointer no longer interacts with any of the objects. I have to quit and relaunch VW multiple times to get it into working order and sometimes it requires a complete machine restart. I am using a 2 monitor setup and wondering if it is tied to this. I often jump between monitors and this behavior happens when coming back to VW from the second monitor.

    VW 2015 CPU Usage

    This is the same font we have for all our assets and there is no issue with any of them in their 2014 versions. This always seems to be the problem, tech support is never able to reproduce the issues we have on multiple work stations. I honestly think it has more to do with VW not running properly on our machines as opposed to file issues. Thanks for taking a look.

    VW 2015 CPU Usage

    I just did a complete wipe and reinstall of 2015 sp2, and am using all default settings and workspaces. I have attached a file which contains line work copied from our title block symbol, this just the line work and text not the actual symbol itself. If I start manipulating the objects for a few minutes VW becomes unresponsive and does not recover, cpu remains maxed out. This is completely unacceptable and we are at our wit's end. Sorry for the frustration, but after years of dealing with constant issues like this with Vectorworks it looks like searching for other software solutions would be the smart choice.

    It also seems that while trying to insert symbols from the resource browser is maxing out my cpu and making vectorworks unresponsive.

    VW 2015 CPU Usage

    Thank you for this it seems to have resolved the CPU issue, rebuilt all our workspaces and such from scratch, wondering if it was something I was trying to carry over from 2014 that was creating this behavior. I am however experiencing some strange behavior when clicking in palettes and menus outside of the drafting window. While manipulating these menus the view in the drafting window continues to jump around as if these clicks and scrolls are still registering in the drafting window. This is quite irritating as the view will jump away from line work that you are trying to complete operations on.

    VW 2015 CPU Usage

    Yes, we usually wait for maintenance updates to happen before attempting to upgrade as it seems to resolve most if not all software issues I find when testing out an initial release.

    Thank you, I will give this a try and see if resolves the issue.
