    HELP ! Symbol replace & resource previews

    Problem entirely solved by removing migrated favourite files from the application support folder. Essentally, when favourite files from your upgraded version are migrated for the purpose of resource previews, they are not actually converted to the new file format. That can be proved by reviewing any instance where they are referenced - VW2018 says they are still in the old version format. Once old format favourites are removed VW2018 flies. Flaming brilliant - thanks and credit to the tech team for all the fantastic enhancements. Minor gripes - I find having to uncheck cropped perspective every time a slight bore. Ditto docking of window. So I put 'close file' as a right click in my document options. On resource browser option to close preview pane works but the option remains ticked - curious?

    HELP ! Symbol replace & resource previews

    oh dear ! Now the linetype preview in attributes palette is reduced to an agonising crawl. what' gone wrong guys? I can workaround the symbol replace problem by using the 'replace with symbol' command instead. Why should that dialogue open instantaneously, whereas the symbol 'replace' from the info palette take nearly 45 seconds ?? Now I have to find a workaround to linetype attribute as well ? I can always 'locate linetype in resource browser' instead but you have a problem here. There clearly are a number of bugs that I am on the brink of reverting to VW2015, because I need to get some work done. I can't spend more time (already 2 days) exploring VW2018 only to find that critical everyday tools have become intolerably slow. OS 10.10.5, 2.6 Ghz Intel i7, Ram 8GBs

    HELP ! Symbol replace & resource previews

    many thanks art v. the solution is to switch off the other libraries and favourites in the symbol preview search. invariably i am looking for a replacement only in the current open document.

    HELP ! Symbol replace & resource previews

    This is clearly a bug problem. If I use the 'replace with symbol command' instead of the 'replace symbol' from the object info palette, I get the preview-free symbol replace dialogue without delay. This whole resource preview obsession is a nightmare that needs fixing fast.
  11. Symbol replace is unacceptably slow to open the dialogue (30+ seconds), then the replace symbol preview pane takes even more time to open. I need to fix this urgently. I switched off preview pane in resource browser, but migrating files from 2015 adds many MBs filesize - i think this is due entirely to resource preview thumbnails. Can it be turned off? The preview are unecessary since the resource ikons provide a preview.
