  1. I think I recall this being an issue going from 2017 to 20918 as well. I keep aliases of user library files in Favorites in my Resource Manager. That way I have access to them from there, and should I make changes, then those changes are update on the original file. I believe that during migration from 2018 to 2019 Vectorworks removed the aliases and replaced them with copies of the actual files. I noticed this yesterday when I was making changes to my "Fasteners" file in Resource Manager/Favorites. I realized my "Fasteners" file, which I assumed was still an alias, was an actual file, and now I had two different versions of my "Fasteners" file, one that was updated, one that was not. This is a problem. Has anyone else seen this?
  2. I'm not sure how to describe this, but the screenshot tells the story. I see those "Resource Manager" words in my tool set window after I open my Resource Manager window, which is nowhere near the tool set.

    Always Save

    I wish Vectorworks always saved rather than my needing to remember to save, and to be sure it is set to auto back up. Everything could work exactly the same as it does now, but the actions taken since the last save would be saved rather than lost when a crash occurs. We've all been there; Vectorworks crashes and we cringe and wonder how much work we've lost. Other apps seem to be all moving to the always saving mode, and you can revert to a previously saved state.
  4. I keep my Attributes Palette close to the bottom of my screen. When I open the color picker for fill or stroke the view options disclosure triangle is partially hidden and hard to grab. Please fix this.

    Fraction Text Display

    This is fixed in Vectorworks 2019. Thanks.
  6. I wish the Workspace Manager worked exactly opposite of how it is now. When I move or resize a pallet, I want that to be temporary until I tell it to "Save" changes to the workspace. As it is now if I want to retain the current pallet sizes and locations I have to make sure to switch to another workspace that I don't care about to make temporary changes. In other words; there's no way to easily revert to a previous workspace setup. DO NOT USE the "Save Palette Locations" command and expect that to help. To make use of it you need to reset all saved settings in prefs, and that makes a horrible huge mess.

    All I can tell you is it worked for me.

    It's working for me. Did you quit Vectorworks before trying to update? It just finished installing.

    Change the release date of Vectorworks so it is some time after the release of a new Mac OS. That way there's plenty of time to make it compatible.

    Align Distribute Tool. Is it broken?

    I was wrong to say it was in the Designer workspace. It appeared in my custom workspace after upgrading to VW 2019. It was not there in my 2018 custom workspace. Why or why not that is, is just a minor concern. I think how it works or doesn't work is the greater issue. I'd like to see it work on all objects.

    Align Distribute Tool. Is it broken?

    I kind of remember this being a new Spotlight feature in VW 2018. Now it's been placed in the basic tool set for Designer. It does seem that it would be a useful tool for any drawn objects.

    Kevin, I found that out after updating to Mojave. Even so, I would have still updated my OS. I just won't be typing anything in VW until they get this fixed. My point is there was plenty of time to test this and fix it, and not having it working is just wrong.

    Tested with converted files, and with a new blank file.I have a feeling this is related to my installation of Mojave. Seriously, how is it possible that VW 2019 is not compatible with Mojave? It's not like beta versions of the OS weren't available for a long time.

    Align Distribute Tool. Is it broken?

    It is a tool that was more hidden in VW 2018. I guess it could be clearer that this only works with Spotlight items, and maybe that's why it's called the "Align and Distribute Items Tool." Items being the key word rather than saying objects. Even so, the tool tip could say Spotlight Items and that would help.
