Display preferences for VW11

Recommended Posts

In Vectorworks preferences there are settings for both

Hardware Accelerated 2D Navigation

Use VectorCaching for faster drawing

I watched the popup info on these items, I am currently working on a G4 that hase a Radeon 9000 w/64 MB VRAM and hase 1.5 GB Physical RAM So I have plenty of available RAM for VectorCaching & have a decent video card for Open GL performance.

Is there any reason to choose one over the other? Will there be any interference between the two if they are both on?

any help is appreciated.

You can have both of these preferences on. They don't interfere with each other. The Hardware Accelerated 2D Naviagation preference applies when you are panning or zooming. In most cases of zooming or panning, you will see a faster redraw with this on. The VectorCaching preference is more general. In many situations, you will see a faster redraw with this on.
