VW 2014 - Glitchy zooming with images

Recommended Posts

Reproduction steps:

1) Insert image into drawing

2) zoom in or out

Result: VW pauses, shows flash of image, performs zoom operation (0.5 second total)

Tried disabling Quartz/Enhanced options, problem persists

Go ahead and email that file to tech@vectorworks.net with

"ATTN Jim" for the subject please, we can take a look at the full profile.

Also, if you could in that email include one of the image files that you confirmed to have this issue, just in case.

(I'll see about having SPX files added to the allowed list of formats for the forums if thats possible.)

Ok, sent. One thing I noticed that is odd is Sys Profiler only reports 1 cpu / 4 cores... why might this be?

I tried running the old nvram boot-args to see what was set but the correct usage escapes me

That seems normal, those i7 iMacs were 1 CPU, 4 cores, hyperthreaded to 8 total I believe. So if you pulled up Activity Monitor it would show 8.

(My iMac12,1 is 4 cores, but not hyperthreaded, so I only see 4 in activity monitor.)

In any case, that shouldn't affect this behavior. Taking a look now.

It looks like this machine is 10.9 Mavericks pre-release, so we wouldn't have any compatibility with this OS yet.

Do you have any other Macs or Windows machines with a supported OS that you could test to see if you get the same slowness on?

Yes you're quite right, Activity Monitor does show 8. Mavericks Crisis #58 averted.

Unfortunately I don't have any other machines I'm willing to put the release on. I'll check back once the GM goes public later this month.

Understood, thank you.

I'll be able to get more direct answer for you once the OS is officially released. (Engineering is quiet on things that are still in the realm of developers-only.)

But wait. I'm getting glitchy zooms, too. I've had VW 2014 running for several weeks, but this prob only showed up in the last couple of days. Regardless of images, or whether the file is new or a converted older file, I get herky-jerky response when I zoom with mouse wheel. By that, I mean that when I zoom in by a few 'clicks' on the mouse wheel it zooms, pauses, goes back to original zoom and then zooms in to the expected scale. No probs if I zoom a click at a time.

Logitech M510 wireless usb mouse, current driver according to Logitech download page.

This is one of many new symptoms that have been popping up this week, so it might be hard to pinpoint. Any ideas?

Do you see the same slowness if you use the Zoom tool instead of the mouse zoom, in both of its modes?

Seems I misspoke - the problem only occurs for me if using the zoom tool, or keyboard shortcuts assigned to zoom in/zoom out. Zooming with the mouse wheel works fine.

Yes, I see the same herky-jerky zoom when I use the zoom tool. One other observation that might be important: If if I use the mouse wheel to zoom in and out from one mouse position without pause, it seems to work ok. But if I zoom once, then pause a sec, and un-zoom or zoom to a 'very different' mouse position it goes bonkers again. I guess that has something to do with having to redraw another part of the screen?

I figured it out. No more glitchy zooms if I open Preferences>Display tab and check the 'Enhanced Navigation Graphics' box. Now I'm back to normal with mouse zoom.
