Katie, Thanks for your response. Problems with the G4 cube previously reported were not correct (my fault, I had removed the dongle, hence demo mode - sorry). The problem with the G3 tower persists. I have tried removing the preferences file but the problem returned - demo mode seems to kick in after the computer's screen has been dimmed (even though the energy control panel has been adjusted so that the hard disc never slleps). I have now swapped over the USB dongle from a Mac that has been running OK. If the problem transfers to the 'OK' Mac, then we will have identified a dongle malfunction. Whatever the outcome, I will let you know what happens.
we are running a number of macs with OS 9.2.2 and VW 9.5.2. All macs are dongle protected. Several macs appear to be randomly switching to 'demo' mode (in the background) and we are therefore suffering from loss of data as we are unable to save work. We have ensured that hard discs are set never to go to sleep, although I suspect (in my bones) that the problem is to do with USB connectivity. The macs affected, at the current time, are G3 turquoise towers + a G4 cube. Please can any one help as its costing us money (???!) + great frustration. Thanks.
previuos vesions of VW had the ability to zoom in/out using keyboard '1' /'2'. This is now much missed in VW9.5. Also, it seems a shame that the object info box does not have the ability to perform other modifications other than dimensional - ie lock/unlock objects and edit line weights & colours etc. An ability to edit these sorts of attributes, form a customisable info box, would be a great leap forward.
