Scale 1:100

Make Revision cloud -polyline option

Double click to edit polyline

Move or add verticies

About 20% of vertex edits, VW pauses for a couple of seconds then crashes

Message is the usual MS bugsubmit message.

Same thing happens when using the Repetitive Unit tool

XP sp2

current video driver

current OS updates

I have had similar problems with Polylines when shifting vertices - the hour glass of death appears and it's goodnight VW - quit start again and all of that. Hardscape tool will do it sometimes as will my Plant Symbols. I think there is some sort of bug but have not tried to isolate it.My computer is fairly fast (I know not a mac) AMD 3800 dual core, 2 gig ram and 256 graphics and normally nothing else at all running - I use a different machine for email, word processing and general office tasks. I have arrived at the point when editing polys I do it very slowly and wait after each command before moving on and that has helped a little.

not limited to large files.

I can get it to happen with a new file.

BTW, The office here is using LM12.5 on XP over a server, but the same thing will happen when working off the local machine.

I'll have to check what happens on my Mac

Is there any news on this??.

It's starting to get unmanagable for us with some of our large files.

As far as a sample file is concerned; I can make it happen with any new file within about 6 edits of a revision cloud.

Please help.

What would we do without the ability to upload and then download then upload files ... install ... de-install ... reinstall...

this sure reminds me of the old days when beta testers used BBS & mailed floppies back & forth ... how much productive time is being wasted with all this ??

If this trend continues then we should all invest in the makers of Installer Software .. that's where the real $$$ is .. not in managing CAD chaos...

I'm eager to totally upgrade .. but so gun shy ... now that even a simple proven procedure will be sufficient to break the workflow

and take down the app.

Sure... for newbies this is just the price of admission to the wonderful World of VW ... but for us Old Dogs ... it's simply devastating.

Please Help. ...
