    Display Flashing and Changing Colours

    @bcd thanks, its definitely not the cable or monitor - its only the workspace / sheet space flashing and changing colour. The rest of the program remains normal (exactly like AnaRF's problem)

    Display Flashing and Changing Colours

    I'm also having this exact same issue in a drawing on my new laptop. I have an Intel UHD Graphics 620 card. the file I'm working on is a small 3D house, the file size is currently at 26mb. Today is so much worse then it was yesterday as I could close the document, re-open and the flashing would stop for a least a couple of hours. Today its flashing as soon as I flyover the model even after closing and re-opening multiple times.I have a few external wall textures in the drawing but nothing too elaborate. Its impossible to work on it when its doing that so any advice would be greatly appreciated! I've attached my DxDiag too @PVA - Jim if there is any chance you could take a look? Thanks DxDiag.txt

    PDF changing the insulation tool pattern to zig-zags (not loops)

    @RussU Thanks Russ, I'm on Vectorworks fundamentals and don't have the publish to PDF option. My PDF printer is currently temperamental on my machine (though is getting some better results at lower dpi on others machines in the office). I was hoping to rely on the vectorworks export option now they've added it in to the 2019 package.

    PDF changing the insulation tool pattern to zig-zags (not loops)

    Yes I think you're both on to something - further testing shows the higher dpi setting helps up until 750dpi then nothing improves after that. The viewport scale effects that too. Here are some test pdf's if its of interest. This is all done through Export to PDF insulation test 72dpi.pdfinsulation test 750dpi.pdfinsulation test 600dpi.pdfinsulation test 450dpi.pdfinsulation test 300dpi.pdfinsulation test 150dpi.pdf

    PDF changing the insulation tool pattern to zig-zags (not loops)

    Thanks for the quick reply, yes this image was on 300dpi and have also tried 150dpi and even rasterizing the pdf. I've also tried turning the 'export patterns at on-screen resolution' on and off. There aren't any other options to test on the Export PDF dialog that I haven't tried. I've looked through the vectorworks preferences and nothing obvious there to try changing.
  6. Hoping someone can shed some light on this one! Please see picture attached - my export to PDF (vectorworks 2019) is changing the insulation drawn with the batt insulation tool to zig-zags, not loops. I've tried some trial exports and it seems related to the size of the insulation, but I can't find enough of a pattern to explain when and why it simplifies the insulation. If I print to pdf (not export to pdf) the insulation remains as loops! The drawings really aren't that small, so shouldn't simplify the insulation. I'm wondering if there is any setting I can change to override it from doing this - not obvious and I've done trial and error for quite a while now with no solution!

    Object Info Window - Render Tab disappeared

    Still getting this problem intermittently, sometimes comes back with a full machine restart - rarely comes back with a VW restart only. Using the latest service pack on VW 2018. Its a real pain!! Also when the render tab disappears, and I try using VW for simple 2D line drawings only, the whole drawing window flashes white constantly after any change I make. Just drawing a line causes it to flash and least once, and anything slightly more demanding, like duplicating a line, causes numerous flashing. Its exhausting to look at & becoming beyond frustrating.
  8. As of today, my render tab on the 'object info' has disappeared! I opened Vectorworks today and it is no where to be found... Its been there the rest of the week. If anyone could shed some light on how to get it back, it would be most helpful, I've run out of ideas! Please see screenshots attached - Mine currently vs. vectorworks as it should be.

    Renders Turning Black Once Updated

    Also getting this issue in 2018 SP1. Seems to be similar to previously described where any changes to a viewport or design layer causes the renders to turn grey, yet it takes the full time to render rather then stopping after a few seconds. When application is restarted the rendering works again. Just to flag up that perhaps there is still a bug ?
