When I conceived this post I wanted to do a comparison of file opening times from VW2018 to VW2019. We have been experiencing dramatic lag in a couple of our files, and I thought it was because of VW2019...however... when I converted back to VW2018 and ran a test, it took 13 minutes and 32 seconds for the file to open! Proof, watch video... https://screencast-o-matic.com/watch/cqVbFy3bS8 While I am fairly certain VW2019 is still slower, or at least close, I don't really want to take the time to find out and do the comparison This is just one example of where VW needs to dramatically improve. If you don't want to watch a still 13:32 second video of a file opening, what makes you think I do?
I have a brand-new iMac Pro at work. We migrated everything from my old machine to the new. I deleted all copies of Vectorworks and reinstalled from the latest releases fresh. VW2018 is working just fine, but VW2017 cannot seem to interact with the Finder, or whatever controls file opening processes. If I try to open a file, the program and the whole machine freezes completely. If by a miracle I get a file open (by dragging a file from the Finder to the application icon in the Dock), then I'm faced with being unable to even browse for resources in another file. (I'm assuming such action means the program is trying to open the file behind the scenes before it can display its resources -- hence my suspicion of VW/Finder interaction problem.) I have run Onyx and fixed permissions. Saving a file, once I'm in and have made changes, goes smoothly. Backups happen smoothly. It appears to be the reading of files that's scrambling the program's brains. Does anybody have a cue what is happening and how to fix it? Cris Dopher CAD Administrator George P Johnson, Inc
