These are the big issues I have seen so far.


Known bug list and fixes:


Pan and zoom are jerky



Crosshairs vanish

Fix: Type VPCONTROL off. 


Text becomes unselectable/vanishes

Fix: run audit then regen, or set DTEXTED to 1 to use old editor.


Find & Replace tool needs to be run twice to find all objects.

This text bug needs to get fixed ASAP.  Thanks for the advice to use the old editor.  This works for me except I still have to audit/regen to be able to move text.  This is ridiculous.

I had all these problems plus an issue with legacy surfaces (surfaces created in 2009,2010 yet upgraded to the new version) would cause C3d to crash on open if Level of Detail was turned on. Everything was easily fixed. Come to think of it though we are experiencing issues with publishing. As always I would test EVERYTHING you can think of before moving up.
