Hi

I can't Redo anymore after Undo. There is following error message: Error occurred reading/writing to undo scrap file. 

 

What I am doing wrong?

Close FormZ and reopen, you should be able to undo/redo

 

You are not doing anything wrong. There is a bug, several of us have been trying to isolate it - with little luck,

it seems to happen most with complex files (over 100Mb??) 

and/or with geometry that has multiple textures

I am affraid, this error is permanent. I installed High Sierra OSX couple days ago. That might be the reason for the problem.

AC1000,

 

We are not aware of any problems on High Sierra. What setting do you have for the Scratch Disk location (Preferences->Scratch Disk). The scratch disk is where formZ writes all of its temporary files. The default setting is "System Temporary Directory". Try switching to a custom location (for example make a folder in your documents folder called formZ-scratch and choose this folder as the custom location. Maybe this will solve the problem for you.

Thank you, Bartjuan and Tech.

I did as you suggested but without success.

 

I am pretty sure, that in my case the reason is High Sierra and oddities are lurking in OSX Library folders. I have problems also with Sketchup and Laubwerk (tree and brush application working with Vray). I had massive error log reports when tried to use Laubwerk. All the errors were referring to OSX Library. I have two MPB and other is still running Sierra - no problem with FZ or SU with Laubwerk. 

 

The whole machine with High Sierra was formatted first and all installations were absolutely clean.

 

I'll continue my investigations...

Correction:

 

I can Redo, but I'll get error message every single cmd-B (redo) command. As the error message tells, something is locked. Isn't it?

I have had the same error everytime I try to Redo, since installing High Sierra.

 

Is there a undo/redo scratch file that can be deleted or something?

imagix, 

 

as tech states, you can change the location of your scratch disk in the preferences.

I tried that, but it didn't solve the problem :-(
