  1. The updated chart makes me really curious as to how a Mini M2 (not Pro) with 24GB memory would do. $1200 with 512GB SSD. Add $200 for 1TB. Not my dream machine, but likely the best value for my purposes.
  2. I think that would be helpful if it's not much of an effort. I would probably include iMacs with the laptops due to the cost of a separate 5K monitor.
  3. and second and third, at least for some of us... Thank you for the explanation. Next time I have to deal with this, I'm certain this thread will be very helpful. It would also be nice if VW could put together a graphical explanation with screen shots that covers all of the ways that Walls, PIOs, and Wall Closures interact and are controlled. And/or a Coffee Break webinar.
  4. That improves my speed all the way to 38:59. I think I'm still the "winner". I'll post the hardware cost if & when I can find it.
  5. In case anyone is interested: I recently came across Menuwhere, a Mac utility that provides an easy way to access menu items anywhere on the screen in a similar way that Smart Option Display lets you access tools. I use the 'Q' key for Smart Option display ("quick") because I've never been comfortable with the way the space bar also invokes panning and the boomerang feature. I've set Control-Q to invoke Menuwhere, so I can access menus wherever my cursor is. A nice added feature is that you can set it to only show active menu options, so any grayed out commands disappear. I am unaffiliated with Menuwhere. I used the free version to test, and purchased the $3 license.
  6. 39:55 - 2019 iMac 3.7 GhZ 6-core Intel Core i5, GPU Radeon Pro 580 X 8GB, 40GB RAM OS 13.2, VW 2023 SP3
  7. Yes. I was going to go looking for the link but was distracted. Thanks for posting.
  8. I think the Wall Closure features are great, but find the interface VERY confusing. There are too many "places" that control the related settings, and none of them are intuitive. A UI redesign would be appreciated. There's a video tutorial by @Matt Panzer in one of the forum threads that is the best explanation of how to control these settings.
  9. To the best of my understanding, when the machine runs out of RAM, it uses disk space to write down some of the RAM data, creating greater "virtual" RAM capacity. However, this is much slower due to the read/write and swapping time. An SSD should do this faster than a spinning disk HD. https://support.apple.com/en-ca/guide/mac-help/mh11852/mac
  10. @Rob Nykolaishen Are there any downsides to doing this? Does it reset preferences? Other?
  11. Help system issue reported via the form yesterday with no response or confirmation. Making it worse, there is an underlying interface problem that has also not been responded to by VW: Tagging @Neil Barman and @JuanP re "I do encourage you to use the Help System’s feedback form" in this thread:
  12. @Tom W. Is your internal drive an SSD? I'm assuming an SSD would be faster at virtual memory swapping than HD or Fusion drives.
  13. Feedback submitted via the help system feedback form. Let’s see what happens.
  14. I'm assuming this hasn't been changed in 2023. Am I wrong? I believe every other Marker that generates and links to a Viewport can be placed inside the Annotations of a SLVP. Interior Elevations are the only exception and should be brought into line with the rest of the interface (please). The help system is very unclear. the Creating Interior Elevation Markers page doesn't mention where to place the marker - Design Layers, Sheet Layers, Viewport Annotations, etc. See https://app-help.vectorworks.net/2023/eng/VW2023_Guide/Annotation2/Creating_interior_elevation_markers.htm However, the Create Interior Elevation Viewport command page indicates that the marker is placed on the Design Layer per https://app-help.vectorworks.net/2023/eng/VW2023_Guide/Viewports1/Creating interior_elevation_viewports.htm
  15. Maybe someone at VW HQ could update this post: Not holding my breath...
