Texture mapping badly broken in VW2018


I have a feeling everyone knows this, but just in case here it is: texture mapping in VW2018 is badly broken. The Attribute mapping tool barely works and it just now stopped working. Here is how it goes: I click a 3D object and the screen would go blank. I do command-6 to bring it back. Click with the Attribute Mapping tool. Blank screen as the object disappeared into the ether. Command-6 and begin stretching the texture. It only works for so long, however, and eventually the Attribute tool does nothing. Nothing. Did I mention Nothing? In OpenGL mode (so I can actually see the texture) many objects are not able to be selected--even if I lock everything else. Really, this is horrible. It is so horrible, in fact, that this is now a deal breaker. Unless this is fixed VW2018 will be my last version. Add no more"features" until this is fixed. You have gone down the road as a 3D application, so now you have to finish the drill. If I'm doing something wrong, fine. Please tell me. But I did not have this problem in VW 2016 or 2017. Thank you for your time.

Yes, it's highly dysfunctional. I'll add to your list that it can also cause Vectorworks to crash, but there does not seem to be a particular set of circumstances that cause it to do so, just repeated use. After a crash and restart, it will usually work again on the offending object / texture.
