Vectorworks keeps crashing


Hi I'm having problems with Vectorworks, I'm using the educational version. I had the 2017 version but it kept crashing when I tried importing dwg files. Then I dowloaded the 2018 version I'm able to import files and work but when I try editing the 2d cad block it keeps crashing. Could you please advice me on how how I could fix this.

Welome to the forum.


Hard to answer without knowing what's in the file and the blocks and what your computer specs are.  Please feel free to post the file here or send it to me in a PM.  We'll be happy to take a look at it.


In general, dwg blocks are 2d and 3d symbols in VW.  If you double click on the symbol you should get an edit window.


You might also try selecting the object then Modify > Convert > Convert to Group.  This will "desymbolify" it.
