    Vectorworks 2019

    I agree with you, typically, the "open beta" ends up being the official release until service pack 2 or so. Something like Release SP0 = Open Beta, SP1 = Release Candidate.

    Vectorworks 2019 Structure Member Tool

    Interesting. Since I can't actually draw anything with it, it's hard to say 🙂 My apologies for incorrect information.

    Point load calculation

    As Scott said this is precisely the functionality the Braceworks module provides. It’s a great tool to be sure, and has been much improved since it’s initial release, but it is still relatively in its infancy. And as such it can’t handle all rigging situations you might encounter in the real world, but for those it does, it does well.

    I suspect you are referring to the AEC structural member tool. We are referring to the entertainment rigging one. There are several tools in VW that share similar names but with somewhat different functionality. Confusing for sure.

    I only attempted to mess with this for a moment but I too was unable to draw anything.

    Creating Hoist Layout Stickers

    I would imagine it would be generating a worksheet in Vectorworks with the info you want, exporting a CSV delimited version of it. Then use Microsoft Word mail merge (or similar), with that CSV as the data source. And format how the labels look/what size label.

    It is my understanding from @Jim Wilson that 2019 is currently hard coded to only use a max of 4 cores for now until it has proven itself stable. Then they can increase it later. Part of me wishes that the core limit was a user preference and then I can scale it back down if I start crashing. But I understand why they did it.

    While I understand the current UI is crusty and the promo videos make it look and feel great. Perhaps it's the utilitarian in me that would rather have a rock solid, completely multi-threaded, lightning quick, patch on-demand software package first. The focus of 2019 seems to be a step in that direction. It could have the most beautiful/functional UI on the planet but if the former isn't met, who cares?

    v2019 'Active Symbol Definition' drop-down causing lag in Blank Document

    I did originally, but since deleted the 2019 user folder and restarted it clean. I just did your gear > refresh libraries and that seems to be working so far.

    v2019 'Active Symbol Definition' drop-down causing lag in Blank Document

    Anytime I use a tool that has you select a symbol from the dropdown there is a spinning beach-ball and the whole program/UI stalls for 20 seconds or so. IE: Insert Lighting Instrument. Select from the dropdown.... stall. This is a fresh blank file.

    Are there any videos relating to the new Braceworks tools? IE: Bridle Calcs, House Rigging Points / Structural Members?
