Viewport changing size - still

The bug is still here. Perspective viewport size is changing when reopening a file. Not always, but frequently…

I would upload a file, but the McNeel server isn’t working.

Server still not working… Sent the file to tech using WeTransfer.

Same file as here.

I made a new template file and saved it. When opening my new template file in the latest beta (6.16.19191.20064, 2019-07-10) it looks like this…

Closing and opening the same template 3 times in a row give me this result twice and the correct result (4 equally sized viewports) once…

This is still a problem now and then - in almost any file… Any luck repeating it / fixing it?

Philip

I’d like to add that I very much would like to have the same ‘viewport border snapping’ as in Win Rhino.
Thanks!

Philip

… and also the ability to move the horisontal borders together - and all borders together by ‘snapping’ to the middle of both the vertical and horisontal borders (as in WinRhino).
Thoughts…?

Philip

This is still happening… Can you fix it? I’d really like the borders to stay put…

Is this possible?

@dan

I believe you. However, we’ve never been able to reproduce it on our machines, so we wouldn’t know where to start a fix. That’s not for a lack of trying however. I know I’ve tried to reproduce this numerous times and failed.

As far as I can tell, this is not possible with the current state of Mac’s viewport drawing. This is the “epic” issue for tracking this sort of request: RH-54392 Rhino for Mac’s Viewport area is not customizable.

I have been fussing with this this morning and I cannot reproduce it. I know that is not much help, but …

it also happens on my computer, i reported it in this post

This is sad and odd. Here it seems to be happening almost every second day with different files. Oh well…

Philip

I really love the Mac version, but this is an area where WinRhino is so much better. Not your fault, obviously, but I really hope it would be possible some day in OS X also. How 'bout some sort of hack… :wink:

Philip

Philip, do you often switch between 5 and 6?

No, not anymore anyway - I don’t have V5 installed anymore :slightly_smiling_face: I do sometimes work with files that were originally made/started in V5, but that doesn’t seem to matter… I have had the same problem with an ‘original’ V6-file too.

Philip

how did you uninstall rhino 5? i may have a clue how to reproduce it, but i can do that with rhino 5 and rhino 6 involved only. i guess it has to do with some UI user file which both share.

Drag from Applications to the Trash bin no doubt.

that will leave quite a few files behind which are maybe responsible for exhibiting that issue.

Hmmm, if I remember correctly I just replaced it with V6 during the installation (of V6).

Philip

This just happened again… Rhino version 6.18.19246.01092, 2019-09-03.
I’ll send you the file.
