  1. We've tried it on a few machines now and they all do the same thing. We can only assume its working as designed when in 2D CAD mode, zooming in and out causes a preview line to be drawn and then replaced half a second later with a vector line. Can anyone else confirm that when in 2D cad mode they see this same behaviour? If you start from a blank page then draw a circle. Zoom right out, then back in again there is a delay when quit close in redrawing a jagged line into a vector. So far no one has confirmed this with me. Thanks
  2. Hi , we upgraded from old version 12.5 straight to VW 2012 (on a new machine) As you are saying it is running smooth and fast for you, please could you tell me if there is a delay on your screen when re-drawing lines. For example When I zoom out on a simple circle and zoom in again it takes a split second to draw a preview line then re-draw with the vector. I cant work out if its designed to work like this or if its because of a bug. There are no other issues, no crashes so far or the pinwheel . Just this slow redraw. Much less fluid than the old version 12 or 12.5 for us. Thanks
  3. I have already posted on the other thread which you recommended and couldn't find any answers. I just phoned http://www.leornado-cad.co.uk who said we should have purchased VSS ! And that maybe Nemetstek hadn't had a chance to try their software out on the new mac pro ! Heres the spec again Mac Pro 5,1 2 x 6 core 2.66 Radeon 5870 12gb ram Like I say its not too bad, but for the money and system specifications.. I would expect a more 'fluid' experience when zooming in and out of drawings. We are seeing a half second or more delay re-drawing.
  4. I am having a similar 'problem' on a 12 core mac its takes an split second to redraw a vector after first previewing as a lower res line. Its annoying and I can't seem to find out if this is the way its supposed to work or not. We only use it for 2D Machine is 12 core Mac Pro mid 2012 12 gb ram Radeon 5870 upgraded. A bit disappointing seeing as we have seen the old version 12 running on an old mac pro PPC without this 'feature' . We also ran VW 2012 on another intel Mac Pro just a quad core, it had a similar delay between redrawing, thats why we then purchased a top of the range one after reading the performance guides on Nemetsteks website. We hoped the delay would be gone, but alas no just slightly improved.
  5. Please could someone tell me if this is normal, as I am new to Vectorworks. Although my client has been running VW 12.5 for many years and it did not behave in this way. When I zoom in where there is a curved line there is first a preview of the line which is re-drawn as a vector. There is a short delay (but easily noticeable) between seeing the previewed (jagged or anti-aliased tried both) and the vector line. This happens when creating a blank document and drawing a simple circle. Is this just the way VW 2012 does things or can it be improved by changing any preferences etc?
