  1. I kinda agree with you. I have also used VW for many years. I think Nemetschek should offer more support to a product that is only 2 years old. It's equally true Catalina has broken other applications, so I do have sympathy with VW. But on balance I think it's more important to keep the OS up to date for reasons of security and I did not expect the 2 year old software to become obsolete.
  2. I’ve been struggling on with VW 2018 on Catalina. It just about works on newly created drawings but I have to switch computers and use Mojave if I want to open an older drawing. It seems to be modifications to closed polylines that crashes the drawings on Catalina. Also opening older files from VW sometimes results in a blank screen (although they can be opened from Finder). I have some sympathy with Nemetschek in that Catalina is an awful OS and has caused problems for other applications too. Having said that, although I will buy 2020 to allow access to completed work, it will be the last VW purchase.
  3. It does work but not very well. Some files won’t open from VW only finder. Sometimes design layers do not show any content. I agreed it’s disappointing. I am a small practice and I can’t afford new CAD software every year. I’m currently looking for CAD alternatives now.
  4. Shorter, Thanks for your response. I am not on Service Select, I will look into it. Just by way of an update, I have removed all of the cache and plists and rebooted VW (the uninstall function will not work). This has improved things slightly, the design layers are working now. It's a little slower than it was previously and drawings cannot be opened from VW only from the Finder. It appears to be be just about useable but its not ideal.
  5. Thank you Rob, This is disappointing to know as VW 2018 isn't that old ! I did do some reading before installing Catalina but I could only find information on compatibility with 2019. I guess I will have to revert back to Mojave.
  6. Hello, I'm new to the Forum. Just wanted to report that I have just downloaded Catalina and it has made Vectorworks 2018 pretty much unusable. The main problem is that drawn information is not visible in the design layer on most drawings I open, although it is visible in the sheet layers. Occasionally when opening an existing drawing no information appears at all - not even the editing window. I'm using a 2019 iMac, 3.6 GHz 8-Core Intel Core i9 with 128mb of Ram. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
