hey guys, so i just got my hands on a 2013 Mac Pro(12-Core Intel Xeon, 2 FirePro D700 6 GB, and 64gb of ram) and my 2018 baseline macbook pro seems to out perform it... is there anyone still using a 2013 mac pro. Has VW just moved past hardware from 2013? i can never remember what part of the system VW uses the most. Does it help that the mac pro has 2 graphics cards? does the 12 core Xeon help or hurt it? does VW2020 prefer clock speed over core count? my main workflow is Spotlight and occasionally OpenGL/renderworks. thanks guys.
Strange issue. I installed Vectorworks like always. I left the Vectorworks 2017 folder (fresh install, new computer) sitting in my 'user~Applications' folder. Thats the main, regular old applications folder. I went to download some online content via the resource browser. It failed. Gave me an error saying I don't have the permissions to change my Vectorworks 2017 folder. Selected the folder, hit CMD+i to get info. Sure enough, I have administrator rights to that folder. Read and Write. Called Apple support. Asked why I wouldn't be able to write to that folder. Stumped, the support guy got two senior engineers on chat. According to Apple, apparently, you can no longer set permissions on the Applications folder itself. I attempted to add myself with administrator rights to the Applications folder. It fails. Since the Vectorworks folder is INSIDE the Applications folder, I can no longer download things using the Resource Browser in this configuration. This seems insane to me. Anybody else seen this? My workaround is to just move my Vectorworks 2017 folder to someplace else. Any suggestions? They suggested the desktop, but that is such a mess I hate to leave full application folders sitting on there. Apparently the 'Can't set permissions on the Applications Folder' is a new development or 'un-documented feature' on Apples part. This worked fine back in January when I built this machine. I'm guessing one of the OS updates introduced this.
