  1. @Helm thanks, your <save>,<revert to saved> trick seems to be resetting my RAM. Process is marginally quicker than the full restart Ive been performing to do this. Im using VW2020 by the way.
  2. Sorry to hear, Im suffering from this to, what is your hardware specs?
  3. @JuanP Thanks for posting this but I had look at your "complete list of fixes" it doesn't mention the memory leak issues relating to section viewports. Does this mean it hasn't been dealt with? Cheers, Andy
  4. @JuanP I to am getting memory leak issues constantly in all files. Lots of crashes unless i check my "activity monitor" every 30 minutes, and restart VW when it reaches 40-50GB. Screen shot below, is the status after open VW and performing 3 viewport updates- no model or line work changes... If there is a fix for this VW should release asap, not according to a predefined schedule. You are transferring to much time/money cost to your consumers business's. ... aaaannnddd super slow performance on hidden line renders. I mention it here because other threads regarding the lack of performance for hidden line renders seem to get no love or attention from VW experts. If Open GL can do it (crop hidden lines in real time) why does it take a view port 20 minute to render a hidden line (sans intersecting lines&surface hatches, 150 page dpi)
  5. I might add another question here 4. Im finding that i get lots of conflict alerts and inhibited model when I add a "proposed' site modifiers which cross over ' existing site modifiers. Yet this is an essentially ability. I need to use existing SM's to clean up my survey point data generated site model and then my proposed SM's are naturally going to edit these existing conditions. Is there a work around? Like a way to export a "clean" site model which integrates existing SM's as permanent edits? Once i have established existing conditions accurately Id be happy to lose the ability to retroactively edit existing conditions (and possibly make the file lighter?) once I commence design (proposed) iterations. Thanks for your thoughtful engagement Tamsin, much appreciated.
  6. @Tamsin Slatter Hey, Coupla questions... Is it normal that i need to "force select" anything related to my site model? eg roads, site modifiers (all types) etc..? Is there a simple way to cut pad into a slope with vertical cut faces without disturbing the surrounding gradients? as is commonly required for footings and basements. So far I have experimented with two very clunky work around's. use a two pads, one above and one below the cut face (slightly offset). use a pad with minimally offset grade limiter Why not have an option to use a wall or slab to control a site model? this would be intuitive to use, reflecting real world construction and smooth out workflow when making edits? Appreciate your thoughts Cheers, Andy
  7. 1) Fix Lag Issues 2) Option check box to: Auto Centre Space symbol to space boundary (should update automatically when the boundary is changed) 3) Option check box to: Auto Constrain symbol text box widths to space boundary (this might be harder to achieve but will help keep thing tidy) 4) Show Space Symbol in Sections
  8. Is there a way to get Space Labels auto centre when their geometry is edited?
  9. @Boh I found that string eventually. I tried refreshing R Browser, I did make an improvement- lag occurring with 1 out 10 Space operations instead of every time. But within an hour or so reverted to the standard laggy behaviour. Hopefully 2020 will show improvement, not sure how they justify having tools that perform so badly, so much time so often wasted trying to learn, inter-grate, trouble shoot new tools, only to discover on here that experienced users simply advise not using it all!!
  10. @Diamond Refreshing Resource browser, fixed the lag for me 9 times out of 10... for now! Not sure how long it will last though. Cheers for the tip
  11. OzCad, the Australian distributer have a much more comprehensive window and door tool "WinDoor" Includes bifold amongst many others. VW would just need to license and distribute it internationally I expect.
  12. Spaces Sticky/Laggy/Slow to load obj info when selecting. Approx. 2-5 sec lag every time a space is initially selected and again as edits are made. Anyone else? Any settings/workarounds that will help? Cheers, Andy
  13. "weird behaviour fo site modifiers"... where to start! 1. Selection of site modifiers, they always seem to be "behind" the site model and sometimes impossible to select without zooming out and marquee selecting, sometimes this doesn't work either...restarting the program can help. 2. how to create two pads( or pads with retaining edges or pads combined with grade limit workaround) that share an edge without generating errors. I have tried setting the two edges back of each other but then a corresponding fillet of "site" is generated. (see triangular plane in attached image) Thoughts?
  14. Thanks Mark, it wasn't from a camera I just followed the standard "create viewport" from a design layer into a sheet layer workflow, the pixelated image is just a front elevation
