Dear Vectorworks users,
I've seen a lot of complains lately (myself included) about the speed that Vectorworks 2018/2019 is operating.
Today I had contact with the service select office in Gouda from The Netherlands.
My Vectorworks was fixed problem by this simple trick and I hope this works for you guys aswel.
If you experience lag/loading time/crashes etc. Please follow the following instructions:
Note: I had to translate the option names from Dutch to English they might be called different in the English version.
Step 1: Open Vectorworks 2018/2019
Step 2: Go to the tab 'Extra'
Step 3: Go to 'Settings' this should be second last option.
Step 4: Select 'Vectorworks Preferences or Preferences Vectorworks'
Step 5: Go to the second tab 'Display'
Step 6: Go to the bottom and click on the bar that says: 'Display during navigation'
Step 7: Select the 'best performance' option. (NEVER put it on the second option)
Restart Vectorworks. This helped me to get rid of the following problems:
- Lag in 2D drawing like, windows, ploy lines, etc.
- Lag in Sheet Layers.
- Lag in 3D OpenGL views.
- Hidden Line renders take ages to create in Sheet Layers.
If you experience any trouble feel free to contact me!
