text peoblems in 2008/Mac/Leopard

Recommended Posts

Whenever I try to modify text, the text shows up off screen and in the text box all I see is small boxes. This is pretty frustrating. Is there a solution?

Please create a signature with your version of Vectorworks and computer specs including OS version. This will make it possible to help.

OK, sorry just read your title again (it's still a good idea to create a signature). I believe this was fixed in a service pack, are you up to date in your SPs?

You may also want to try with a different font to see if it is a corrupted font. Use one of the Apple System fonts like 'Courier', 'Geneva' or 'Helvetica'.

Have you updated VW to the latest version?

Are you doing this in the viewports?

Can you post your signature?

Failing all of that, this issue is often corrected on Macs by going to Tools>Options>VectorWorks Preferences, under the Display tab, and toggling the setting for "Quartz Imaging"

While you're there, make sure "Hardware Accelerated 2D Navigation" is on as well.
