    Last year macOs High Sierra was released 1 week after VW2018 and it broke VW2018.

    They should really email the whole userbase. not everyone has time to browse forums to figure out they shouldnt follow an upgrade path
  3. Hi I'm wondering if Nemetscheck is testing VW2019 with OSX 10.14. Last year they didn't test it thoroughly and failed to advise VW 2018 users NOT to upgrade to OSX 10.13 and I had to downgrade VW after 1 week of release to keep working. I hope their business communications will be better this year.

  5. Hi all, I am running VW2018 sp4 on OSX 10.13.6. I have a title block that references the sheet layer name (and other metadata). If i type in "Window Details" as my sheet layer name, and then decide to type it in again but with different capitalization such as "WINDOW DETAILS", the sheet layer name will remain as "Window Details". For some reason VW can detect the string is identical and won't update it, despite the format change. My temporary workaround is give it a temporary name like "VW Bug Window Details" and then name it "WINDOW DETAILS" it can clear the problem. CAN ANYONE REPLICATE THIS BUG AND GENERATE A REPORT?

    Arrow Issues in 2018 SP3

    Ok thanks. I feel like there was a period in march where no one was monitoring bug complaints on the board. Must have fell through the cracks then.

    2018 High Sierra Compatibility Issues

    VW 2018 still has many unresolved bugs and functionality and formatting issues. Its disappointing that users have to deal with a half broken product for 500/year.

    Text Class Bug VW 2018

    Hi I'm having an issue I imported a DWG from rhino into VWX. I am now having an issue: My dimensions class with is a use at creation style Solid White background Solid Black line. When i use the text tool with Dimension Class chosen and my attributes panel as 'by class' for all settings, My text comes in as dimension class with SOLID rather than by class, and a by class definition of BLACK as its background color instead of WHITE. I'm not sure 1) why its not being created with the correct class definitions or why its not inherting properties of either the attribute panel or the selected class definitions? is there another level to text creation that i dont know about?

    If you think you would be immune from litigation if your clients information was stolen regardless of them having you sign a liability agreement, you've got another thing coming. More likely you would have them sign an indemnity clause.

    I know some people who work on extremely large industrial projects and are prohibited from using fusion 360 BECAUSE its cloud based. They use solidworks instead despite its high cost. This is due to client prohibitions and concern about the security of keeping proprietary files in a 3rd party cloud environment.
  14. Rhino just makes 2d lines projected onto a flat plane. A lot like Sketchup's Export to DWG. You can use it with perspective or parallel projections. It does not live link. VW kind of does a live link like you've already described but somehow it just churns and churns if you are doing anything bigger than a 3 wall set.
