  1. When I finished working on a drawing today, I quit Vectorworks. During this process the application crashed. As a result, the file was damaged and I don't know how to recover it.

    When I try to open the file I get this message:

    This file is damaged. It will open with as much data as possible.

    I click OK and this error message appears:

    -39 End of file reached during read.

    Attempt to read file -FSREAD

    I am using Vectorworks 9.5.3 on Mac OS 10.4.6

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.


  2. What I like about Quickdraw is the ability to rotate and view the renedered object on the fly. It's really nice to view the textures and shadows and not a jumbled wireframe as the model is being rotated.

    With Open GL and Renderworks, you rotate the wireframe, then wait for the image to render. Maybe I am missing something. I know Open GL is used is the gaming industry where fast rendering and redraws are crucial.

    Words of wisdom are most welcome

    Thanks muchScott

  3. I just upgraded from version 8. During the process, the Quickdraw rendering feature got missed placed. I am quite attached to the litte fellow.

    If you see him, please let me know.

    Thanks muchScott

  4. I use Vectorworks at home on my Mac to do moonlight drawings. Most of my clients have access to a Windows computer,but not a Mac.

    My question is simple: Can a Vectorworks file done on a Mac be viewed with the Windows version of the Viewer?

    Thanks much
