After upgradng to Windows 7 I tried importing a .dwg file to Impression 3 and it goes straight into adesk crash mode.
I'm giving up on this software for now....zero support. Back to Adobe.
I am feeling like dumping Impression too now, if it is not going to be supported. Jtickenoff, you say that you will go back to Photoshop, which I use to process illustrations that have been through Impression to convert the CAD geometry to 'wiggle' pencil strokes and to get the watercolour fills. Do you know of anything else that can convert the lines into the hand-drawn wiggly look?
"It looks as though this is actually a Microsoft issue. Our developers have logged this with their contact in Microsoft and we are currently waiting on feedback from them. I have requested an update from our developers and will get back to you when I hear from them."
So at least it looks like we will get our fix, but still none the wiser about when.
I have done it totally all over 3 times just to make sure!
As an Architect I love Impression for quick sketchy looks of my Revit Arch models and elevations.
No other Autodesk product has such a wide range of color fill texture styling tools.
ASBPro is way too light on effects to be worth using.
I do hope Autodesk keeps the Ipression code going into the future.
When can we have a fix?
According to Autodesk Support, the problem lies with Microsoft (dotnet?). I am not sure whether MS agree.... so there could be a standoff, which might explain the delay in resolving it.
I urge anyone who is impacted by this issue to contact Autodesk support via Subscription. We need keep up some pressure to get a resolution. We need keep up some pressure to get a resolution.
Having said that, the low activity on this forum makes me wonder how big the user base for Impression is, and thus how high a priority fixing it is for Autodesk.
Impression is currently not supported on Windows 7.
