@912345678 it looks like we have other reports of this problem and are working on a fix, but I'd like to add your example if you wouldn't mind messaging me a copy of the file?


From what I'm seeing the problem is worse if you update the viewports and then edit the Annotations. So one workaround might be to get the viewports in an updated state, then save/close/reopen the file, and then edit the VP Annotations. I'm not sure how much it'll help, but it might be the best approach until we can get this fixed.


Best Regards,

Is your drawing or viewport rotated? I'm having issues with text  whenever the viewport or plan is rotated. I get the spinning ball and it hangs.

That happened to me as well.  I updated to 2019 this morning and can't edit text as well.
I tried to open a blank document and just used the text tool.  I get the spinning wheel and unresponsive application message again and again.
My computer is running on macOS Mojave v10.14.3 and the version of Vectorworks is 2019SP2 (Build 463397) (64-Bit)   Please help!
