  1. Thanks for the quick response. The slow quit would happen in either of the scenarios you describe. However, the good news is that I may have inadvertantly solved the problem. I set up this machine to drive two displays off of one video card. All our other machines have two cards, but I installed an ATI 8500 which can drive two monitors, so I thought I would give it a try (our older ATI secondary cards require a workaround in OS X, kind of a pain). My initial setup had the gray startup screen showing up on the secondary monitor. This was the setup that produced the slow quit behavior. When I switched ports on the card I got the startup on the main monitor and also fixed VW (quitting is now instantaneous). I don't know if there is a cause and effect relationship here, but the only other thing I did that I can think of is repair permissions a few times. In any case I'm not complaining!
  2. VW Architect 10.5.1, OS X 10.3.3, G4/800. VectorWorks is taking about 1m15s to quit. Doesn't happen on other similar machines. Very strange. Any suggestions?
  3. I also had a similar problem printing from VW 10.5 to a HP DesignJet 1055CM in OS X 10.2.8. The problem appeared suddenly and with only certain files. The script was no help to me either, but another suggestion that a font could be to blame yielded a solution. The culprit turned out to be Stencil which was inadvertantly used by a new employee. We routinely use Stencil BT without ill effects. As soon as Stencil was eliminated normal plotting was restored.
  4. I had a similar message appear suddenly when printing certain files from VW 10.5 to an HP DesignJet 1055CM in Mac OS X 10.2.8. Tom relayed a suggestion to me that a font might be to blame and sure enough I was able to pinpoint Stencil as the source of the problem. Turns out a new employee inadvertantly used Stencil instead of Stencil BT which is what we typically use and has never created any problems. As soon as Stencil was removed from the drawings normal plotting was restored. Needless to say Stencil will be erased from all workstations, although it prints fine from a machine still running OS 9. Thanks to NNA for maintaining a great resource and to Tom for his help.
