    VW 2019 and OSX 10.14

    I first downloaded and installed Vectorworks 2019 to my iMac Pro running High Sierra. Tried to use it with various files with several issues so went back to 2018 and will wait for the first update. Then, not learning my lesson, I downloaded and installed Mojave. Both 2018 and 2019 had major performance and display issues. So, I went back to High Sierra, a major process, and will now check here before updating either again!

    Memory Usage Problem

    I'm using VectorWorks 2018 SP4 on an iMac Pro with 10 cores, Radon Pro Vega 64 GPU and 64 GB memory. Building sections have been taking an extremely long time to render and sometimes hang so I checked the Activity Monitor. Wow! 148 GB memory being used see attached. Anyone else have issues? -AB

    iMac Pro information

    Less frequent but still crashing. I always save before using the flyover tool. But I had infrequent crashes on my previous iMac too..

    I'm not having a consistent problem with the flyover tool but it does crash once in awhile..

    iMac Pro information

    Since then has locked up once, no particular reason. I’ve mainly been rendering without issue. I’ll try some other tools.,

    Foliage tool crashing Vectorworks

    That worked! Thanks for the tip..

    iMac Pro information

    Thanks Bob! FYI I'm comparing the iMac Pro with a two-year old iMac, configuration attached. Aside from frequent crashing with Vectorworks 2018 (which occurs on both machines actually although not as often), I'm getting used to the speed. When I use the iMac for comparison, it seems painfully slow. I've never been happy with the fusion drive setup, always seems to lag. Anything you'd like to test?

    iMac Pro information

    Just got an iMac Pro with the attached configuration. Although its much faster, especially with Renderworks, I'm experiencing frequent random crashes. It doesn't seem to be tied to anything specific, just ordinary tasks such as stretching or moving an object in top/plan. Hopefully the bugs will be worked out soon..

    Foliage tool crashing Vectorworks

    In Vectorworks 2018 SP2, every time I try to use the Foliage tool, Vectorworks quits. I select the tool, draw a poly line and .. crash. Is there a setting or something I'm missing? -Allen

    Sheet viewport class overrides revert to design

    No, I'll give it a try. Would save time changing back to the override settings. Still can't figure out why the settings are being lost..
  15. I've got a house design with multiple elevation viewports on sheet layers. Each sheet layer is a different combination of class settings and layers to illustrate several variations. The problem is that sometimes, not all times, the sheet viewports "forget" the override settings and revert to the current class settings. Huge waste of time to go back and change each material back to the override setting. Any thought on why this is happening?
