2014 SP1

Recommended Posts

How's everyone finding v2014 SP1?

I've got a feeling it's less stable but I haven't been using it for long enough yet.

He meant how are you liking the SP so far, "How are you finding" is an expression.

I'm experiencing a lot of crashes when switching design and sheet layers.

P.S. hehe, thanks anyway Yoginathaswami.

I have instances where I shut down the program....and it stays active in the background until I go and manually shut it down via task manager

I'm surprised no one is confirming the crashing when switching layers. For us this has become quite prominent on all machines in the office as of SP1.

I have two other users that are actively experiencing this, but I can not get it to occur here in house at all.

Still trying though, the only thing that seems similar is that the files came from older versions, however with both of the users i've been working with even a full layer import into a fresh 2014 document experience the same problem that I am unable to replicate.

WW2014 SP1 seems to have a lot of issues with files that originated in earlier versions. I've had alls sorts of issues (at least one identified by Jim) and its getting frustrating.

As a general rule we do not Batch convert a file if has gone too far into DD; keep it native, keep it clean is our motto, so I only have two older VW files that have been batch converted, so far, so good. Some of the comments give me some pause, I don't remember this being said as much for 2012 & 2013.

What I've noticed is if I open a VW2014 file and I have another application active I will get "Ghost Images" from say a web page I have open. It only shows up for a few moments on my VW drawing but long enough to be concerned. This ghost looks like the webpage was put through a shredder then haphazardly re assembled.

Same here. Older files.

A good practice perhaps but it's not the way we want to work in the long run. We want to progress to the latest version of VW when it comes out and move everything forward with it. And we want Nemetschek to expect us to work this way.

^This.

Any example files where this or other anomalous behavior occurs after updating to 2014 or SP1, please send to Tech@vectorworks.net with a brief explanation and a link to this thread. I am still trying to nail the issues down and this would be a great help.
