Question

Vectorworks 2019 has been  freezing for 1 to 5+ minutes at irregular intervals.  The cause is pretty random.  Today I have been tracking between 2 different files I working in. 

- froze while undoing a rotate left

- froze while creating a viewport of a front view

- froze while making a section view (10 minutes ish)

- froze while converting a set of polygons to a group

- froze while rendering an open GL

- froze while trying to scroll an open GL

- froze when zooming in and out on annotations of viewports (during each scroll each other viewport rerendered. 

 

Whenever it is really bad I restart vectorworks and it functions fine for an hour or so and then triggers again.  My settings are set low quality for rendering and I have been working in wireframe except for when otherwise specified.  One file I'm working in is very large and the other is fairly small however I am freezing in both documents roughly the same amount.  Do people know what settings might cause this or if it is an issue with vectorworks 2019?  

Needless to say I didn't have this issue with 2018 so I'm trying to figure out why this might be happening since it significantly increases amount of time necessary to accomplish tasks.

Update, service pack seems to have helped in some respects however I did make a new sheet and put together sets of viewports on it.  Shortly afterwords every action in vectorworks took about 3-5 second delay.  Had to restart vectorworks, then worked fine for an hour or so.  Need to do more testing but it appears the issue is still alive.

 

Edit - continued working, tasks that have also been oddly slow

adding surfaces if over 9000 polygons, under takes like 5 seconds tops, 9000+ took 5 minutes

selecting large numbers of objects

converting copy to polygons takes 1-5 minutes from mesh objects takes like 5 minutes.

@Dendecko

Is it possible for you to share this file? You can send it to me in a private message, if so.

We would like to take a look at it internally.

 

Thank you!

Selecting wall in 3d view - custom view cause freezing for few seconds...

@Marissa Farrell I will look at options.  I cannot directly share the file due to an NDA but I could show some independent pieces when I have a moment.
