It's not a big deal, it's annoying. It feels like computing in 1998, when you had save your files every five minutes and backup your settings before the next crash.
Oh, and SP1 didn't mess up my application options.
I still can't type an extrude value in the heads up display - I have to go to the extrude dialog box to make that work. Even though the Extrude Command DEFAULTS to the Heads Up Display. Hmmm...How many releases have been like this?
ALL OF THEM.
Not working on core functionality.
Haven't seen that problem on any of the machines here.
There was a problem whereby you couldn't enter a user parameter into a feature (HUD or otherwise) while doing a part edit-in-place (you had to open the part explicitly)
Just checked and coincidentally they have just fixed that with SP1
Yeah, it makes me feel like I'm losing it because I keep thinking - "Surely they wouldn't have let something like this through - it has to be me".
But actually I've recently spoken with an AutoDesk insider and all the problems I asked them about, they embarrassingly admitted to and said that AutoDesk knows about some / most of these issues, but they aren't a priority to get fixed.
Where I work at, if something doesn't work - you fix it. Or they'll get someone that will.
I don't think they really use their own software. The make software, not hardware. That's why they spend time making a fancy but useless floating mini-toolbar that you can't turn off. It looks nice in the documentation but sucks to use.
If you look at the presentations their execs gave for the shareholders, you'll see that they're trying to sell subscriptions to the software suites, even though ~65% of the users only use one program. They seem to be trying to get into the multimedia market and so the parametric design stuff is second-fiddle to the CGI stuff. At least that's my interpretation.
Inventor has some terrific features and some monumentally annoying ones. I don't see the trend going in the right direction, unfortunately. I'd love to be wrong.
I just installed SP1.1 on a users machine and it crashed twice in 2 minutes. 2013 Inventor is so unstable. Is it also supose to install SP1 also? I am at a loss for words with these crashes and the Material Issues. Nothing I try works anymore. My users are getting very frustrated.
