Re: Slow mouse and zoom response issue

Hi dominic,

 

There is only one type of acceleration in Mac version of AutoCAD - Hardware, so you can not disable it.

 

Although acceLeration option of  -3DCONFIG command shows both options - Hardware and Software, the last option is only for compatibility reasons and does nothing on Mac.

With VM Fusionware you need to untick the "gaming" mouse preferrence in the settings otherwise the mouse function does all kinds of funny things.

Hi I had the same problem and think I have sorted the slow delaying snapping, panning, spinny coloured wheel frustrating situation.....on my all new mac and autocad. Lt for mac....having spent considerable money updating i feel like i have been hoodwinked by both apple and autodesk......of course it will run cad blah blah yea right half baked software not fit for professional use. Anyway.....my fix is this not ideal.....but works....so far.

Was running autocad 2004 on windows moved all files to mac.....opening up files on mac lt autocad....wow so easy.....this is great........hmmmmmm.........cad files for 2004 windows open but not fully compatible.......ie laggy mouse etc etc

SOLUTION.......open up your CAD 2004 drawing.......copy it......and paste into a newly opened mac lt doc........no more lag.

Why could autodesk the reseller or apple tell me this???? Testing not done fully.......!!!!!

Hi,

 

I'm just curious how did you perform such task: copy data from AutoCAD for Windows (2004) and paste it to AutoCAD for Mac? Does clipboard on your Mac allow such operations - I mean AutoCAD specific data exchange between virtual machine and Mac OS? I'm assuming that you run AutoCAD 2004 inside virtual machine on your Mac.

I mean that i opened up the .dwg file that was drawn in windows 2004, inside mac lt......and copied from that file, pasting into a new drawing file.....obviously not perfect but the drawing snapping etc works like a dream. I assume that you can do this function in mac lt and you can perform this operation.

Hope this helps took me a month to work it out, there should be a converted program written to batch change.....its a case of opening up a drawing copy and pasting when you need it. Most of our work was born in 2004 win version. So wont have a problem with new files started in mac lt......i hope this is the case so far so good. Who knows bit disappointed with autodesk and apple......as far as i am aware vector works is the standard cad program for mac, which in no mood to learn.....running sketchup pro to do most work....trying to migrate towards that simplier graphic and free....non pro version so clients can look at models.

I see... In fact, when you copy data (AutoCAD objects) from one drawing to another some settings (AutoCAD system variables), specific to the initial file (2004 version file in you case) are not transfered to the new file, as they are stored in each DWG separately. Maybe the case is in these settings? Can not say for sure.

 

 

EDIT:

Hi Ben,

 

I just now remembered one more thing.

Do you have a lot Layer Groups (Layer Filters as they named in Windows version of AutoCAD) in your 2004 drawings?

Large amount of Layer Groups could considerably degrade performance of AutoCAD.

Look at Layers palette. Do you see a lot of Layer groups?

BTW: AutoCAD can ask you about deleting Layer groups, when you open file that contain a lot of them, but you have to set variable LAYERFILTERALERT=3 in order to see this warning:

In your model space view make sure to set your view to 2d wireframe.  If this is set to Wireframe or something else it will lag bad.

Should fix the problem
