    macOS Mojave (10.14) Compatibility

    Installed and running OSX 10.14.3 now. Sadly Apples fix list is embarrassingly non existent. https://support.apple.com/kb/HT209149

    Through my research, and using a iMac with a boosted graphics card, I am leading towards the GPU being the issue in most cases.

    Sound advice it's my first port of call to see what is eating up what resource. Activity Monitor helps narrow down issues very well.

    Leave it for now.
  5. I am sure it runs fine on Windows, OSX users are having issues.
  6. We continue to see stability on or 30+ workstations with VW2018, on OSX 10.13 machines. Both VW 2018 & 2019 on OSX 10.14 cannot be used a a daily driver. Why too many bugs and Apple themselves say the software is not supported with a pop up warning when running VW2019 SP2. So I am waiting for a version that is not as buggy, before upgrading all the companies workstations to Mojave and VW 2019. Any word yet? EDIT: Adequate testing with open betas is required, in actual working environments, cause these bugs should have all been identified and sorted long ago IMO.

    Section lines not displaying in Viewports

    What if you have created the sections and now with all the classes/layers on etc in top/plan, you can not even see the section line to ungroup? EDIT. Could not turn it on from the viewport, but can see two of the section lines on top/plan view, though the horizontal section line is still not showing.

    Open Beta Program

    At least those who use the software daily, for projects can test it properly. Way too many bugs these days going unchecked through their own beta testing avenues. +1 from me also.

    So Apple are claiming its not their issue it seems... Back to you Vectorworks.

    Yeah that spinning is constant with differing sources/causes. Yesterday I had multiple crashes/spinning for 10mins, when selecting a text box on the drawing. It maddening how poor support is from Apple, yet i find it an easy excuse to throw everything at their door too. Either VW left these bugs so late, that Apple have not gotten round to fix them yet or Apple do not want to know, cause they should have the man power. I am aware that other CAD packages have similar issues with Apple and Mojave support, though maybe not as extreme.

    Mojave when?

    I have a newer iMac with a AMD Radeon R9 M395X 4096 MB and still have issues with bugs in Mojave on VW 2018 SP6 and 2019 SP2. Every day there is a different complete bomb out or a spinning beachball that takes 5-10mins to clear. This is the thread you may want to read.

    What I am finding is that these bugs do not happen every single time, just randomly. People who use the app for drawing, daily, are the ones who identify these bugs. Today i had a couple for example. 1. Object info pane randomly adding 3 x 0's to all dimensions that i would input. 2. Opening a saved view crashed the app straight out. (first time that has happened)

    Its the reason why none of the 40+ users in my office have been upgraded to Mojave yet. VW 2019 is still buggy. I cant upgrade them or get them to use 2018 either, as support for that is further behind and I do not want to bug test that as well, doubling up on my already beefed up workloads.

    @hh_berlin I have found other bugs as i was starting to use it everyday. So it's still not fit for our office roll out IMO. Inserting stairs beachballs and bombs sometimes. There are a few other slow downs/hang ups while it processes data. Will note them next time. Don't get me wrong, is usable, but you may encounter issues. Due to that, we are still sticking to OSX High Sierra and 2018. EDIT: Inserting symbols into a drawing gets very slow on occasions, also the quick click icons (auto join walls) etc do not stay enabled after each restart. Will record any others I find. EDIT1: Complete application quit when changing the bearing height of a roof. Not every-time though.
