    VWX 2019 Significantly Slower

    I've just started a new drawing in version 2019, it consists of two design layers with 14 simple walls on each layer and already there's problems and as for changing views the refresh rate its so slow. I've loaded the drawing into version 2018 and everything is instant when changing from plan view to isometric view. Version 2019 is f******g useless, thank god I'm retiring this year VW is wasting too much of my time. I too am sick and tired of VW using us paying customers as beta testers. PS sorry for the inferred swear word but that's how I feel.

    version 2019 quits without warning

    the files I was working on were all created in version 2019, I was only changing the reference to load a different drawing also created in version 2019.

    version 2019 quits without warning

    in the middle of working, the last time I was changing a link to a referenced file, before that its happened while updating viewports and fitting walls to objects. I've also noticed that the link in referenced files don't show "broken link" when they're broken as they did in version 2018 also when clicking the update viewport button it doesn't grey out as it did in version 2018 so its not clear I've selected the button or missed it by mistake.
  4. Hi, has anyone else had a problem with VW quitting without warning, this has been happening since installing SP2

    How come these problems always arise every time a new version comes out, don't they learn by their mistakes. Do other CAD programs have the same problems?

    VW 2019 How to import PDF?

    I usually drag and drop it into the drawing space.

    this always happens with new versions, I think the end users are the ones doing the testing and it cost us time & money. I think I'll wait until version 2020 comes out before I start using version 2019 the problems might have been sorted by then.

    VWX 2019 Significantly Slower

    2019 is painfully slower on my machine, I've attached two versions of the same simple drawing, update all viewports happens pretty much instantly in version 2018 but in version 2019 it takes about 30secs to a minute (varies) and I've applied SP1 to version 2019 Is anyone else getting speed problems. I don't think version 2019 is fit for use yet and has probably been rushed out, so its back to version 2018. Why are there always these problems on new releases, surely speed is a basic requirement to test. pergola 02 v2018.vwx pergola 02 v2019.vwx

    VWX 2019 Significantly Slower

    Hi everyone, I find version 2019 is considerably slower than 2018, not only when refreshing viewports but also when editing sections in place. I also have a problem when after certain operations for example joining walls, copying and pasting objects, I have to zoom out and in to see the results, very disappointed with 2019. I've also given up on using the new stair tool gone back to the custom stair tool this really needs sorting out. As for the new 2d components for hybrid objects, don't really see the point of it.

    Graphics not refreshing

    Yep I've had this problem as well also get a problem with the resource manager not refreshing properly, some of the libraries don't refresh until the mouse goes over them

    Service Pack 4 for Vectorworks 2018 Released

    I'm getting problems with the speed at which the items in the resource manager loads, I think I'm going to uninstall VW and reinstall up to SP3 things were better then.
