Upgrade from as6.01 to AS 7.0

Hi I just upgraded from AS6.01 to AS 7.0 and I noticed a reduction in
performance the redrawing time is slower. I remember in the past when I
upgraded from drafix to AS that one way to increase redrawing time was to
unmark the save bitmaps. I tried to do that in AS 7 but I couldnt find the
option... any ideas??? thanks

Yes, do what I had to do and go back to AS6.

AS7 is garbage as far as I'm concerned, causing multiple crashes and
generally wasting a lot of valuable time. And money as well.

I don't know about the bugs being fixed in AS8 now being advertised, but it
appears AutoDesk have ignored all wishlists as far as reinstating some of
the old features from Drafix (like MACROS!!!).

A month ago I kick-started my old Drafix Pro and was amazed at just how fast
it operated compared with AS6.1, plus the macros worked!!

Sorry if I sound like a whinger, but I'm disgusted with how AutoDesk have
nobbled a great product.

Regards

Barry Pike

Hi I just solved the performance problem.
I add in the windows register autosketch\preferences the string value of
"PaneBitmaps" then press enter click modify and in the value data input box
I typed number 0 and choose OK. It solved the performance degradation I was
telling about it.

I could be wrong here, but I seem to recall....by doing that you lose all
the handles from a selected entity.

Hi Rick: You are completely right, so for now I think I am going back to AS
6.01.
Thanks
