Cannot manipulate multiple view pane

Question

I love the new multiple view pane feature. it really is great. 

Today I was trying to reconfigure three view panes, and tried to close 2 of the 3 active view panes. I could close one of them, then noting happened when I tried to close the second one. Also, the margin that was appearing between the panes disappeared. 

Any insight would be great! This is my first post, so I apologize in advance if I missed some protocol.

 

I am using. 

iMac (21.5-inch, Mid 2011)

2.8 GHz Intel Core i7

16 GB 1333 MHz DDR3

AMD Radeon HD 6770M 512 MB

Running High Sierra

Its very likely its a VRAM issue. Your graphics card only had 512MB of VRAM and the minimum for multiple view panes is 2GB.

Thank You Kevin,

As it says in my title, I am a greenhorn, so Ill ask this:

Would  this issue  you speak of, file specific, or global on any VW file I am working on? For example, the Multi View Panes were working for a while on the model I am making then stopped working. After I posted this last night, I opened up a blank template and the Multi View Pane was working well, but there was nothing really happening in the file. SO as a file size grows, more memory to render that particular file, using more resources that are taken away from the program performing as it should?

Thanks again

Randy

Hello RJDG,

 

Could you send me the file if possible so that I can inspect the multiview data?

You can choose to send it through the messaging system here on the forum.

 

Thanks!!

If its related to VRAM then it would be dependent on a variety of factors - complexity of model, number of panes open, whether the panes share layer/class settings, rendering modes of the panes etc.. My system has only 1GB of VRAM so as my models get more complex I can start to see display issues during long working sessions. I believe each pane is treated as a separate "display" of sorts, so the Vectorworks Graphics Module may load your model into memory separately for each pane. Someone else may be able to give you a more technical answer.

Thank you for the insight- I privately messaged Chih-Pin and attached the file!
