Worksessions ETA?

Just wondering if this feature is being worked on… I could use it! I see the main option in the File menu but nothing in the fly-out, which I’m sure you’re aware of.

It’s on the Open list for Mac V6:

No ETA yet other than before release.

Thanks John!

This item is marked 6.x and probably should not be (which is my fault). I think this is a 7.x or later feature actually because of the changes that would be necessary to the Layer manager. I don’t want anyone to expect this in Rhino 6 for Mac.

Dear Dan, is there any progress with worksession command for the Mac version?
it is such an important command/function.

Hi - issue RH-36512 is open to the public and you can check the status at any time. It is currently on the Future list - I have added your request to that issue and the issue it is dependent on to be fixed first.


Worksessions is the feature I miss the most from my days with WinRhino. I hope the “future” comes soon…



Yep, I miss worksession too!

Yes, it’s a very important feature and there have been no news about this for a long time. @dan ,could you share some info regarding when work sessions will be ready for Mac Rhino?

I’m sorry to report that nothing has changed since this post over a year ago. It will still require a rewrite of the Layer Manager to get working correctly. This is definitely a post 7.x issue at this point, I’m afraid.

Feeling more and more that I could use a bootcamp :slight_smile:

it was implemented in an early WIP 6 version, but it didn’t really work… Hope you guys can figure it out and get it to work in Mac RH7

(Sorry, I should have been more clear above :point_up_2: and not so jargon-y.) I’m afraid to report that Worksessions is not a feature planned for Rhino 7 for Mac.

That is disappointing. Contemplating whether Rhino could become our primary CAD software but without references / work sessions it is hard to conceive that it would be an option.


basically it is the key function in each large or team based project. In my opinion there should be a focus on.
