  1. Great news, thanks for confirming! It seems that somehow VW is getting confused about which monitor the main menu is being displayed on which is causing the menus not to work, even though all the menu shortcuts function, etc. We are continuing to investigate this to try and figure out why it is happening. Just be aware that it is entirely possible that the same problem will happen again until we figure out the problem. Thanks again!
  2. Can you try going into System Preferences -> Displays. And then in the dialog set your display to use a scaled value and pick something like "Larger Text" and hit OK at the prompt. Then go back to VW and see if the menus are working again. If they are working, you should be able to switch your display setting back to the "Default for my display" setting.
  3. Hi everyone, we have been having difficulty figuring out the cause of this issue that a few users have reported on Monterey but we are still working to figure it out. I would recommend updating your OS to the latest Monterey 12.1. There are some reasons to think that this may resolve your issue. If you decide to do this, please report back and let us know if this helps. Here is some additional info: Unfortunately, reinstalling VW will not help. You can try closing and reopening the lid on your laptop. Reports indicate this clears the issue in the meantime. Another thing you can try is go into your computer's battery settings and try turning OFF the "automatic graphics switching" option and see if it helps. Please see this thread for more info.
  4. Yes this has been fixed for VW 2021 with SP5 and it will be fixed in 2022 in an upcoming service pack.
  5. I would recommend updating to Monterey 12.1. If you do, please try to scale your display again and hopefully everything should work fine again in the new OS version. Please let us know if you decide to do this. Thanks for the info!
  6. Hello, Thanks for the message. We are aware of this issue and I am happy to report that this will be fixed in Vectorworks 2022 service pack 2. This should be released in the next few weeks. Please update to the latest when you can and sorry for the problem that you have been seeing. Best Regards, Ian
  7. Good morning, This problem has been fixed in the SP1.1 build that was released on 10/22/21, build 619242. Please make sure that you are using the latest SP1 release. This was a problem with the initial SP1 release that was released a few days prior. Please let me know if you are continuing to see any problems after updating. Best Regards, Ian
  8. Hi Christiaan, Can you provide some more information on this? We are not seeing this crash anymore. What version of VW are you using and what build? Do you get a crash log? What is the behavior that you see on quit? Thanks!
  9. Kaare, Sorry to hear that you've been having trouble with the feature. Early on we made some changes to make it harder to accidentally detach the tabs but some users reported that they were still having problems, while many other didn't have an issue at all. As Andy shared (thanks!), we added a new Lock tabs option in the utility menu of the palettes. When this is turned on you won't be able to detach or rearrange the tabs. Turning this on won't set things back to the way that they were, so you can move tabs around or detach them and then lock them how you want them to avoid accidental changes in the future. Hopefully this helps you out and thanks for your continuing feedback. -Ian
  10. Hi Ryan, Our general policy is that we never recommend users to upgrade their machine to any beta operating system versions, especially not the first beta that is released. There are almost always bugs in the beta releases that need to be fixed, and keep in mind that things like printer drivers are normally not available immediately. We do not get early access to macOS betas, so our testing just started for Monterey when it became available to us yesterday. We will update our with our findings over the coming weeks as we do more testing with Vectorworks.
  11. Hello, The M1 Macbook Air that we have is the 8GB version. I'm not sure if the 16GB was even available when we purchased this since we got it when they first came out, but I would say that this machine is pretty entry level. Thanks, Ian
  12. Please follow the official thread for the latest updates to our testing efforts on M1. There was an update posted yesterday in fact. Enjoy!
  13. Hi everyone, Thanks for all of your feedback so far. We have been listening and trying to reproduce some of the issues that you have described. The "Dock Tabs Here" option should be available all the time, if you aren't seeing this it could be a bug on our end, but we haven't been able to reproduce this issue yet. If you have any additional info please let me know. We have made a change that will go into VW 2021 SP2 that will make it a little harder to detach the tabs. You will need to click drag a little farther away, so hopefully this will help some of the people who have been accidentally detaching the tabs when they don't intend to. For your future info: Palette positioning is stored in both the workspace and the saved settings files in your user folder. When you open VW and move some palettes around, that info is stored in the saved settings, which takes priority. That way we don't need to create a custom workspace just to save the palette positions. But if you open the workspace editor or run the "Save Palette Positions" menu command, then the positions are written into the workspace also. If you want to reset your palette positions for some reason you can use the Reset Saved Settings button in the VW Preferences dialog box, but you will also have to go back to a stock workspace if the positions have been saved there also. Hopefully this provides some more insight into how these systems work together. Best Regards, Ian
  14. Unfortunately I doubt that Apple Silicon will have any affect on Apple's tools regarding support for older versions of the OS, etc. Apple is very aggressive about pushing the latest updates, and their hardware, software and tools seem to follow this policy as well. As for the universal binary, I would expect that universal binary support will be baked into all releases for a while. It is hard for us to have an official policy on this because we don't know how long Apple will continue to release Intel based machines and how long they will continue to support those machines. A given version of Vectorworks tends to have official support for 5 or 6 versions of MacOS. So for VW 2021, it will run and be supported on 10.12, 10.13, 10.14, 10.15, 11.0 and eventually 11.1 when that is released next year. I do not expect that to change moving forward. Here is a list VW versions and official OS support that we have maintained through the years.
