Thank you in advance. We just upgraded to rhino 7 and at first seemed to be working perfectly and faster. A few days later I went to open a file that was last opened with rhino 6 and it caused 7 to completely lock up. I tried another file that i’d used in 7 recently and it opened no problem other than the annoying missing font error. I checked for updates and there was one so i did that and no change on that file. I tried this again on my home machine and it locked up again on this specific file (had to hard reboot). The problem seems only with certain files but we have no way to know which. Some open perfectly. I just went back and opened one from years ago no problem. I would REALLY like to know why this file won’t open and if other files we have will have the same issue.
Are others having issues opening some files and not others?
When trying to open this file (which opened fine in R6)
I’ve tried “testcloseloadingwindow” which i read about and that did nothing.
I’ve tried disabling plugins. (see systeminfo below)
I’ve tried the trick of importing the file that won’t open into a new R7 window and that seemed to work at first and opened it in wireframe top view single view panel but as soon as I tried to pan around memory usage shot through the roof and completely frozen. I gave it 10 min before another hard reboot.
I can securely upload this file to admin if provided a link. Sorry I cannot make it public. It’s 56MB
We have lots of files with pictures which seems like they will mostly be broken now (confirmed). Maybe that is my fault I can’t seem to figure out how to save a file and have the pictures stick around seems like save w/ textures even doesn’t work all the time. And old imported .dxfs from design cad. I’d really like to know what in this file is the problem.
Also, after trying to figure this out on my own a few other things I am curious about…
I read that R7 had an issue opening files that were saved in render display mode. or at least that made them slow to open. That would suck because I work almost exclusively in a modified render display mode with “no lighting” which I like because it provides real time textures but is not slowed down by lots of shodow rendering. I have shortcut keys that toggle between rendered w/ scene lighting (on) and rendered w/ lights off (off) so i can switch to the shaded view for screenshots quickly.
I also work almost exclusively in a single view panel because 4view is useless most of the time. I toggle with F1-4 the view I need. So all of my files are saved in single panel view and rendered mode which now I’m hoping isn’t going to take years off my life from just opening my own files.
