Does anybody encountered a problem with mouse and cursor response, ... also zoom in/out is slow and gluing, sneaky. Almost the same problem as running Autocad under Parallels 5; slow and sneaky, gluing mouse response, ... does anybody know for help? I have 4GB RAM and GeForce 9400m NVIDIA on MBP 5.2, 17".
I have the same problem, I am running on a Macbook pro with 3GB, i will post all my system characteristics so you can give me some feedback if possible.
same problem with me, mouse very slow and zoom in/out too. some features are missing comparing to Windows plattform.
i think Autocad on Mac must be faster and more reliable than on Windows. i think it needs more improvments.
... not only mouse (or pointer) and zoom but also a pan is extremely! slow, with delays and sticky (especially with some more drawing material). As you pan with mouse, the content of drawing delays of some microseconds! Also snap is slow and not precise. It is not possible to work with this version of AutoCAD for MAC professionaly at all!! After one day I returned back to Windows version! Waiting for some improvements or any help from AutoCAD helpdesk!! Thanks, ...
I have the same problem, so I tried out my old wacom-tablet. And that's giving me a decent workflow. It pans and zooms smoothly. But that's not a real solution. It needs to be fixed! I'm going back to windows today to get some work done.
Same here MacBookPro late fall 2010 with i5 and 8gb. Mouse and trackpad reallly disappointing for sure. Some very, very odd behaviors going on with my system. Disappearing mouse pointers, drawing peeling away to the sides for no reason, jumpy performance. This product is not ready for prime time for sure!
I bought the highest specs on a macbook pro 6.1 Oct 2010, 7200rpm drive, 2.8ghz i7 and 8gb ram, and yet the same thing happened to me.....
Mouse slows down, whether my velocity is slow or fast. Mouse cursor disappears etc. Let's not even talk about 3d mode, because it is like a madman looking for water in the desert. Program has even crashed. I'm impressed with Cad and even more so with the Mac that costs 3times a simple HP notebook handling CAD well in 2d and 3d.
Are we investing in the right machines after all?
In the Mac store, they told me that the software was the issue and that I should look for updates, does anyone know of updates of AutoCad for Mac 2011?
Is there anything else I can do?
Greatful for any response.
I think everyone should try:
1. Switch Visual Style to 2D Wireframe (via in-canvas Viewport control - at the top-left of viewport, or View -> Visual Styles-> 2D Wireframe). Especially if you create and edit 2D drawings. When performing 3D commands it should automatically switch Visual Style to 3D and back to 2D.
2. Do not use ViewCube for navigation in complex 2D and 3D drawings! (I use this for 3D Orbit and in-canvas Viewport control to set predefined isometric views)
Under these conditions the speed of AutoCAD for Mac is becoming acceptable, even in complex drawings.
