1-Bit PNG import and MAC OSX SIERRA

Question

I have installed Sierra and after the installation I couldn't import a jpg anymore as an 1-bit PNG in my Vectorworks 2016.

It remains 32 bit and therefore I cannot change it's color as I used to do.

Same thing happens to VWX 2017 Test Version.

VectorWorks 2013 still works without a problem.

Furthermore the plans which have already 1-bit Pngs in them although they show correctly on the screen when I try to export the plan as 

PDF the 1-bit PNGs show only B&W.

 

I'm using a iMac 27'' 16 GB RAM, mid 2013

 

Anyone else has the same problem?

Sorry: You are running VectorWorks 2016 on OSX Sierra?

 

How is it? I tried a very times after update my Mac to run VW 2016, but nothing happens. The app icon even do not bounce on the dock. After that appears an error log and crash.

It works fine apart for the 1-bit import and that all the plans that are using 1-bit import when I try to export them they are in Black and white which is very annoying.

I have a laptop with the older Mac OS and I can continue to work properly.

It's really annoying

Vectorworks 2016 and 2017 have not yet been made compatible with Sierra yet. I'll log this as an item to be tested once they're made compatible.

My Vectorworks support team wrote back after 2 weeks stating that this will be fixed with SP5 for VW2016

Unfortunately SP1 for VW2017 didn't fix it

What? No, Vectorworks 2016 has not yet been patched for Sierra compatibility. 2017 got its compatibility patch first.

Service packs are released free of charge.
