Toss that installer in the trash and empty the trash. Then, try downloading from the link below by right clicking and choosing Save Link/Save Target As (this menu command might change in name slightly between browsers) and downloading it directly to the desktop. After the download directly to the desktop finishes, mount and attempt to run the application inside.

Object Info palette sometimes shows No Selection even if objects are selected

With SP1 installed I still have this problem. It comes and goes, no speciel action makes it happen. Sometimes if I create a new polygon it starts to show the info but disappears again later.

If anyone has steps that can reliably and repeatedly cause the OIP to go blank, PLEASE don't hesitate to send me the file and steps. Engineering is tracking this actively but replication is a problem.

This looks like it is just a service pack updater, and not a full installer. You should be able to get the full installation download on the student portal: https://student.myvectorworks.net/home

If you can't see it, or if the same error occurs with it, let me know.

Hello, I'm unable to get the full installation download, the student portal will only start downloading the service pack updater. It´s Vectorworks 2018 for mac, thanks.
