URGENT: Rhino 8 currently unusable in my production environment

Hi folks. Having a ton of little issues here today, making the new Rhino 8 unusable for anything that is rush or has a deadline.
I’m unable to get ‘float to top to work’ . The button shows engaged/checked but I don’t get the expected behavior of a tool button being the ‘first’ in line to show and be visible in a larger set of buttons.
Then after effing with it for 5 minutes Rhino just froze completely, about the 3rd time today.

Is it my machine? My video card? Who knows, but I was just using 7 fine for months with none of these issues going on. I humbly return my ‘early adopter card’.

Probably not. There are still lots of toolbar “issues” in the release version. Early adopters will need to arm themselves with some patience and perhaps have V7 ready as a backup plan.

oh i do miss my float to top! I hope to have it back in 2024!

Why wait until 2024? This should be working in the latest 8.3 release candidate.

Sadly not enough time in a day to mess with RCs lately… maybe again someday,… in 2024! :slight_smile:

Updating here:
Version 8 SR3
(8.3.24009.15001, 2024-01-09) is feeling so much better lately thank you all at Mcneel for the great revisions! Thank for getting float to top working again, and the glitchy Selectionfilter/osnaps tool bar issues…!!! :heart_eyes: :heart_eyes: :heart_eyes:

Short list of little things, I will post sep posts soon when relevant:
-New layer with random color does not randomize enough. See pic, too many off whites in a row, too many greens. Is there a way to adjust the randomness in settings?

-Still very slow update of ‘selected object layer’ heads up info in lower right screen:


This one actually a major pain in the butt.

-Random glitches with layout tabs. Selecting tabs was locked out from me yesterday after doing something in layouts, had to close/reopen the file to regain ability to select diff layout tabs.

-Other instances of Rhino grabbing focus while I’m doing something in current instance. V. annoying and kills productivity. Had to minimize the other instances to defeat this.

-certain defualt button commands/macros are busted. ie: the Symmetry button on curve tools bar will break and go to ‘convert’ if preselecting a curve.

There are a few other buttons like this, will mention them next time I run into them.

Keep up the good work all, I love this software!!!
