QA helped me locate the bug ticket that describes the crash you discovered https://jira.vectorworks.net/browse/VB-181752   Looks like the crash was macOS specific-- that's why I wasn't duplicating it.  The bug was fixed last month and has been verified fixed in VW2022 SP2.  I'll double check that it's been fixed and report back

I just verified the crash has been fixed testing one build before the fix and one after:

  VW2022 SP2 build 614210 -- has crash
  VW2022 SP2 build 615870 -- no crash

 

Looks like SP2 becomes publicly available in just over 1 month

Hmmh,

 

seems I can't even create any light !?

Red Warning in status bar :

"created Light is not visible"

 

VW 2021 SP4

M1 Mac Mini

macOS 12 Monterey Public Beta

sounds like you have Vectorworks Preferences -> Display -> Display Light Objects option set to Never.  Change it to Always as shown here:

You are totally right !

I did clean settings from scratch with VW 2022 Upgrade,

and forgot that setting. It was set to "Wireframe only" !

 

 

Thanks for that.

Still happening to me every time:

VW2022 SP2 build 619242

MacOS 11.6

iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, 2017); 3.8 GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i5; 40 GB 2400 MHz DDR4; Radeon Pro 580 8 GB

 

Seems to be tied to adjusting the brightness.  Adding the light works fine.  I will try updating VW again to make sure I have latest.  But that build should still have the fix from previous builds.
