    Palettes disappear

    I'm having the same issue here. I have to right click sometimes to make it work. I only have one monitor so I'm sure it's not a multiple display problem.

    Palettes disappear

    Yep, I'm trying that but some habits are hard to break. Since I'm apparently the only one with this issue If you come up with any ideas I'll be happy to help try them out.

    Palettes disappear

    Ok, so I tested with resolution 1920x1080 and the problem is still present. The behavior is the same with or without compatibility mode enabled. I'm still testing this on the newest beta driver: 364.51.

    I'll test the lower resolution as soon as I get back to my studio.

    Palettes disappear

    This video test was done with driver 364.51 with native resolution (3840x2160).

    Palettes disappear

    With the new beta driver 364.51: no change. With driver legacy driver 361.91: no change. I renamed the autodesys folder in C:\Users\??\Appdata\Roaming with formZ closed and then re-open to test with each driver. I didn't fiddle around with the UI during the test: a simple open formZ, minimize and maximize causes the problem.

    Thanks Allan for jumping in on this. I do have the latest driver. I remember updating the driver not long ago... and this issue showed up recently. You might be on to something.

    Palettes disappear

    Yes after I rename or delete the autodessys folder the problem is present straight away. Is there any other information I can provide to help find the problem? I know I had this problem in the past with earlier versions of formZ (maybe there's something about this on the old forums).

    Palettes disappear

    I only have one monitor running @ 3840x2160. The problem occurs when I minimize the window wither by clicking on the Z icon from the task bar or the show desktop at the bottom right corner of the task bar or the "-" on the upper right corner of the formZ window.

    Odd mouse behavior on 8.5.3

    When I click to toggle layer visibility I have the same issue. I know 'Z will fix it but for now try this: Click to toggle layer visibility but don't release the click. Instead hold and drag the mouse out of the layers palette and then release.

    Clipping Planes

    Hello Z, I'm having these issues with Clipping Planes: Non of the options of the right click menu are working: Flip, 2D, Make permanent section. There's a graphical issue where the lines representing the plane appear as double lines and/or the "bounding box" is larger/smaller than the object it clips. Doesn't sound like much but the center of the bounding box is so far off it makes it hard to move with precision. Sometimes it's really hard to snap the plane to a point.

    Clipping Planes

    Thanks! Objects far away would explain the over sized bounding box (although there are non). The fact that the bounding box is sometimes smaller than the object it's clipping means it's something else. Yeah, I'm familiar with the differences of clicking the arrow or dot. I remember before the patch that clicking the dot wouldn't move the section until I clicked to release it. The fact that it moves now (like it does when I click the arrow) makes it hard on complex scenarios to place it properly.
  15. I'm having a weird experience when I click to toggle the visibility of layers. Mouse clicking isn't very accurate for starters on that tab. Sometimes I click to Ghost layers and it just hides them all together. Sometimes I have to double click for anything to happen. Most of the times I cant get it to cycle properly (Ghost, Not visible, Visible) and I get a random result: I click to toggle and it goes from Visible to Hidden or I click to make Visible and it goes straight to Ghost. https://youtu.be/PFQa679Vwe8

    Shift click behavior

    When I shift click to select multiple items the crosshair moves and the new aiming point becomes the "+" or "-" sign making it hard to select the desired item and rendering the crosshair useless and confusing. Might be normal behavior but with larger cursos it's a noticeable problem now. Is it working as intended? If it is I suppose I can get used to it but I would prefer it if the crosshair was always the aim point.

    Maxwell and formZ8.5.3

    New formZ update isn't working well with Maxwell -- I think we need an update for the plugin!

    OpenGL Multi-threading option

    Cool, thanks! I don't want to miss out on the good stuff so I'm testing everything

    OpenGL Multi-threading option

    I don't have the option on my menu. Is everyone supposed to have it? My software: form·Z 8.5.3 Build 9795 (found here: http://www.formz.com...mz_85_Pro.html) My system: i7 6700K @ 4.8Mhz with 32G RAM Nvidia GeForce GTX 980Ti driver 361.75 (monitor resolution 3840x2160) Windows 10 PRO
  20. When I select an object and then right click everything disappears temporarily. https://youtu.be/VQTSQh3rLI0 I have opened several files and they all have the same issue. I tried the following: Open file and test > Problem is there New Project and test > NO Problem Open file and then save or save as > Problem still there Open file and a New Project, then copy/paste everything from the old file to the new one >> Problem solved! Is there an easier way to fix this? My software: form·Z 8.5.3 Build 9795 (found here: http://www.formz.com/products/formz/update/formz_85_Pro.html) My system: i7 6700K @ 4.8Mhz with 32G RAM Nvidia GeForce GTX 980Ti driver 361.75 (monitor resolution 3840x2160) Windows 10 PRO

    4K

    I just upgraded my computer and I now have a 4K monitor. I think it'd be cool if formZ could make a 4K UI. In the mean time could anyone help me find out if it's possible to have 4K on the main work window while still retaining Window's scale? I know it's possible for programs to bypass the scaling by right clicking the launch icon and selecting the "Disable display scaling" under the compatibility tab. However that makes every icon unreadable so I'm just interested on the main work window.

    Thank you. I downloaded the full installer as instructed on that forum and now the larger cursor is working.

    Maxwell and formZ8.5.3

    I was able to render in time for my presentation using the latest versions of both formZ and Maxwell. You'll have to remap some textures but if that's impossible you can try this: I lost all MXM referenced textures. It got this fixed by updating to Maxwell and Maxwell plugin versions found here: http://www.maxwellrender.com/betas/ I lost the mapping on several libraries and imported objects like cars and plants. I solved this by copy pasting the model with all the lights/cameras and objects to a new formZ file. I then re-imported the fbx files (cars/trees) and neighboring building (skp). It works now even though I get an error message in my log. Here's a link to my presentation in case you were curious: https://doc.co/ueQeUH I hope it helps, good luck!

    form•Z 8.5.3 Update Released!

    Yes! Sorry Z... I had a panic attack last night. I was able to render and I am ready for my presentation. I had to update Maxwell using the beta version I downloaded from the early-builds section. I lost the mapping on several objects but I was able to fix them without much hassle.

    Maxwell and formZ8.5.3

    Here's a copy of my log. I tried going back to formZ 8.5.2 thinking it had caused the problem but I'm getting the same results now with both versions. My software: both formZ 8.5.2 and formZ8.5.3 Maxwell Render version 3.2.1.0 Plugin 3.1.1.6.
