Slow instrument conversion

Recommended Posts

Has anyone else had problems with SL2008 and really slow convert to instrument/numbering processes? I've been working on a plot for 2.5 hours now because it takes at least 5 minutes each time I convert to an instrument, enter a position, and number. Sometimes longer to do all three tasks. No other applications running, Windows Vista, some new high speed dual core processor, 2G of ram.

There's less than 200 units...I should have been done the entire plot by now.

Make sure you update to VectorWorks 2008 SP2. There was a general application slowdown that was fixed with one of the service packs since the initial release.

Why don't you use the instrument insertion tool when you insert an instrument?, then you don't have to convert them.

are you entering the instrument info throught the OIP??

Also position should automatically get entered when you place an instrument on a named position.
