  1. I recently had 2020 crash when COMPLETELY UNATTENDED. (I was at dinner) When I returned, the typical Mac crash message was up. I assumed that it was caused by something in the "housekeeping" category, such as autosaving or checking for update etc. That being said, I am on Catalina beta.. so weird behavior is to be expected./
  2. Been experiencing the same phenomenon here...
  3. looks like a service pack 5.1 is showing up... @JuanP comments?
  4. @Andrew Davies, I'm experiencing the same phenomenon with a 2013 Mac Pro with 64GB RAM and the D700 Graphics.. so, not a super current machine, but no slouch either... Maybe it's just a display bug, but justifiably, still makes one nervous about file corruption/ data loss..
  5. of course!... hopefully with 2020 the incompatibility won't be as severe as 2019 running in Mojave
  6. Just FYI... 2019 SP4 seems to run reasonably well on Catalina beta 6. My "testing" was not at all methodical or exhaustive.. just opened a copy of a file that I'm currently working on. Checked some saved views and a number of tools, terrain modeling, roof face, wall tool... This is an improvement over beta 5, in that version, SP4 sometimes would crash on launch, OpenGL was not functional, with views not re-drawing when changing view etc... This testing is just for fun, in that it would be nice to upgrade to the latest OS when available.. VW has typically been what requires me to hold off updating...
  7. @Wes Gardner, The implication being, at least in this case, when the cabinets in the file submitted by @milezee, are converted to symbols, simply choose world based, rather than page based (correct?).. For some reason, I never seemed to have the need to make that distinction... perhaps when creating symbols in my files, the correct (page or world based) setting was checked by default.. also FWIW, the pages seemed to render correctly in perspective without my changing any settings in @milezee's file.
  8. @Tamsin Slatter, @Wes Gardner thanks for all of the help you provide. Can you briefly summarize or point to ann information resource that describes the differences in function and usage between page based and world based symbols? Though I'm a long time user, I'm not aware of the distinction.
  9. Just chiming in with a massive THANK YOU to Jim for his responsiveness (and humor).
  10. Obviously, I can't speak for Jim.. but I believe that the TV show reference was very much tongue-in-cheek...
  11. Jim.. What are the TV references?.. I like trivia like this, have not found anything in OS or other product code names that alludes to TV references specifically...
  12. I've had very good results by doing a full uninstall of my original installation of 2019 including ALL preferences and reinstalling from the downloadable sp2 installer... obviously if you are a person with heavy workspace customization, this would not be convenient. I've been holding off on any serious customization until after everything seems to stabilize... I still get an occasional spinning wheel, but just for a few seconds.. never perma-lock requiring force quit.. YMMV

    Do you experience the same behavior with the object info palette undocked? I found that this, at least for now, has cleared up the hanging situation..

    Hi Gunther, It is a hang, not crash.. I did leave my machine unattended for a couple of hours yesterday.. and it was still spinning when I returned.. Initial experience was that the machine hung while the obj info palette was docked. Undocked the OIP, no hang.. redocked the OIP, no hang. Restarted VW, OIP still docked.. no hang...
