VW 2017 SP 5 text tool is super slow


lag time of 3-4 seconds between characters and beachball appears for 2-3 seconds when you try to do anything else such changing to selection tool.

This is happening on multiple machines in a computer lab that I teach in.

Vectorworks 2017 was no longer supported when macOS Mojave was released, hence it has not been updated to work on subsequent operating systems. This is almost certainly the cause of this behaviour, especially because it occurs on all other Mac in the lab.


Contact your local distributor to instigate receiving the latest version of Vectorworks which will circumvent this issue and likely include free technical support. (The conditions may differ between markets/distributorships). 


I realise this is a very late reply, but I'm posting also for the benefit of other users researching this symptom.
