    stair tool 2020?

    I think I'll wait to download the 2020 version, 2019 was very unstable will 2020 be the same. I agree the stair tool is not flexible I tend to used a combination of the "custom stair" and "simple stair" tools to model my own, in fact the custom stair tool is more user friendly its a shame a revamp of the stair tool wasn't done.
  2. Thanks Paulo, I always thought the better the Graphics card the quicker the Final quality rendering would be, never mind I'll have to save up for a faster CPU.
  3. Hi Paulo, just been rendering a drawing in the design layers and it still seems like the graphics card still does very little its still the CPU thats doing all the work, have I missed a setting somewhere, also my motherboard has a built in graphics card but this doesn't show up in the device manager or in Nvidia manager, should I see both graphics cards. I have a laptop with an Nvidia graphics card and an inbuilt one and these show upon the device manager and Nvidia manager. Regards
  4. Hi Paulo, I've set the graphic card settings to what you suggest but doesn't seem to make much of a difference, in fact when rendering views in sheet layers the graphics card doesn't seem to be doing a lot, its the CPU and RAM that's doing all the work, any other suggestions? I have installed the latest update, computer spec below.

    drawing not refreshing

    this is another problem I get when an item is selected the object info palette show no selection, switching between sheet layers seems to fix the problem
  6. Hi Paulo, will these settings apply to a Nvidia Quadro K1200, my PC has only the one graphics card.

    drawing not refreshing

    I tried Good Performance and Compatibility and Vectorworks became very slow so back to best performance, haven't noticed display not refreshing yet, it seemed to happen when I've been working on a drawing for a while.

    drawing not refreshing

    Is anyone else getting a problem with the drawing not refreshing to show what you've just drawn, for example when I draw a new wall it doesn't appear until i zoom in or out

    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.
  13. Hi, has anyone else had a problem with VW quitting without warning, this has been happening since installing SP2

    VWX 2019 Significantly Slower

    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?
