  1. 1. Anyone else experience similar? Any antidote? Or is this just Mac Big Sur action? Vectorworks generates an error after every Quit command whether file saved or not, whether Quit from closed or open file. Quit via Cmd Q Quit command from the Vectorworks menu Quit command from the pulldown in the Dock icon Quit from Cmd Tab icons. This error window displays every time, about a minute after vwx shutdown, even after system restart and vwx launch, new or old file. Error is the usual MacOS window indicating that Vectorworks quit unexpectedly (But, I Quit it on purpose!). Error window contains option to send report to Apple and text of the crash info - a recent one attached here as an rtf. 2. I have the autosave pref set to save a backup file to a folder in same location as source file, and to keep 1 backup. When I look in the backup folder, often I find many backups of the file. Is this expected? No prob, just curious. Occasionally I look in the backup folder and delete all but a few of the most recent backups. 3. What is proper workflow for employing these backup files? This is my process when I need to access one: Close the original file. Drag a copy of the backup file to desktop, open to examine. If the backup is suitable, save/close the file Relocate it to project folder Delete the original Edit name of the backup to match name of the original Open the backup and work on it, save as needed. Any comment welcome. -B vwx2021Crash.rtf
