VW Architect loads slowly

VW uses file recursion to load parts , plugins & preferences. Therefore, any anomalies in the filepaths will cause stress on the load procedures.

Even a simple permission issue can produce hiccups ...

Use Disk Utility or Cocktail to check and rebind the system. Also, make sure your Vectorworks Directories are clean & well organized.

SLIGHTLY LONGER?

It took 49 plus seconds to open a document in VW 12.5 on my MacBook Pro 2.0 GB laptop.

It took 10 seconds to open a document in VW 10.5 on my G4/733 Quicksilver desktop.

I'd say I have a valid gripe here!

It's a shame because I'm very impressed with the program and the job nemetschek did upgrading it.

You are also comparing two different computers, too. There could be a myriad of reasons why it's 30 and change seconds longer.

The load also takes into consideration the number of library files that are included in the Resource Browser.

Am I missing something here? Some programs take longer to open than others, but I don't feel a need to "gripe". Is this really an issue?
