RhinoWIP / MACOS-Sierra problems


I have a client with problems with his Macbook Pro and Rhino WIP

  • Most of the time the keyboard “lose” the comunication with Rhino. For example: We use command BooleanUnion, but some times we press Intro, and Rhino don’t recognize it. We need to clic the button on the window, but the Intro button on the keyboard don’t be applied. (at that moment we went to Word and verified that the Intro button works fine)

  • In some exercises the object “dissapear”. We change to Wireframe, Shaded, Rendered and many other an the object didn’t apear. (I tried the command SelAll, and inside the properties panel, appeared that we selected the object). Other times all the viewports become all in red

Thanks for your attention

Also, what is the “Intro” key? Is that the enter key?

Thanks for yout attention

Thank you. I don’t see anything out-of-the-ordinary here.

Perhaps something in your preferences have been corrupted somehow.

Can you please try this…

  1. Launch Rhino for Mac and start a new modeling window.
  2. Run ExportPreferences and save a backup copy to your Desktop.
  3. Run ResetPreferences to set the preferences back to the defaults.
  4. Quit and relaunch Rhino.

Does this help?
