  1. Sorry for the extreme delay, but I've been away. I have seemed to isolate the problem to some corrupt font, which was eluding me because it was in the Classic Fonts folder, not the Library/Fonts folder Is there some robust way to test for corrupt fonts? Like a utility program which will verify them? Thank you for all your help.
  2. I've been doing testing. The problem occurs on my machine, which was incrementally updated as 10.2.2 and 10.2.3 came out. I get succesful prints of all files on another machine which was a new install, and updated from 10.2.1 to 10.2.3...so your theory may be correct. The strange thing is that this problem has gotten worse, it only affected some files, and now I can not print anything.
  3. Changing to a different printer in VW Page Setup and then restoring to the problem printer did not yield a sudcessful plot. I see no jobs hung in the print center. This was happening today on a file created since updating to 10.2.3. I'm not positive about the rest of the files I'm working on. Is there a log I can check to see when the OS was updated?
  4. Recently I've been having print jobs disappear to our 1055cm plotter. This has been intermittent. Now, the same happens to my 4550n HP printer. I've tried various options (postscript only, color as gray, etc..) with no success. The job shows on my local queue, starts sending to the printer, but stops very quickly...it just disappears. I've deleted and added both printers to the Print Center, no success. I've re-installed HP drivers (4550 v3010.107, 1055cm PS3 v3010.106). This is most frustrating!
  5. 3 times I have had a major crash of Vectorworks 9.5.2 running on Mac os 10.1.5 on a G4 933 w/ 512mb RAM. This is major because it doesn't just crash Vectorworks, but immediatley logs out of the OS, and hangs when I try and log in forcing me to hard-restart the machine. This crash comes from one file, usually on a zoom command. If I have a corrupt file, how can I clean it...And how is it possible that VW can crash the Finder and the whole system?
  6. How can I page through the active class? Similar to Command-<up> or <down> for layers. Can I modify the keyboard shortcut for either function?
  7. I'm on a G4 933 512mb ram running Mac OS X 10.1.4 using VW 9.5.2. I've had this problem since I started printing with OS X, and can't nail down the cause. I get strange cropping marks about 8" X 8" in the lower right corner of drawings I print. It only shows on Arch D or E sized paper. It seems unrelated to paper scale, so it seems like it's coming from the system. I'm using the latest PS driver from Adobe, w/ built in printing support from the Apple OS. Any clues?
