    Interesting comment - thanks! So I assume you have no regrets about switching?

    Thanks again - good things to think about.

    Thanks for those responses. cv2702: My understanding was that the slowing down was something to do with the build up of file storage being scattered over the hard drive meaning that a program has to spend more time finding and piecing together all the fragmented bits. I haven't done it very often but defrag doesn't seem to make a big difference.

    Thanks for your replies. One of the common things that happens with a new computer, and my only experience is with PC, is that they're nice and fast when new and gradually slow down over a year or so. I wonder if Mac is also prone to this?

    Does anyone have an opinion about pros and cons between Mac and PC as platforms for Chief Architect?

    Allowed angles - plan defaults

    Thanks again Curt. Glen - no I don't believe that is the problem. Another thing that might be related is that every now & then various Snap settings drop out and I have to reset them. I guess I will have to call tech support. Regards Ian

    Nope - still happening. Allowed Angles selected, file saved, copy & paste, allowed angles lost(back to 15 degree setting) HP Pavillion computer, Windows 8.1 64 bit, AMD A10-6700 APU with Radeon HD Graphics 3.7GHz 16 GB RAM

    Allowed angles - plan defaults

    Thanks very much for your response Curt. I'll try those suggestions.
  9. I recently upgraded to X6 from X2. I'm really enjoying the improvements. There's one annoying little thing that always happened in X2 and is still happening in X6. When drawing cad details, when I have copied and pasted an object the Plan Default Allowed Angles generally switches back to the 15 degree setting all on its own. I have to open the Plan defaults dialogue and then select enter to reset to 71/2 degrees and additional angles selection. (In X2 I also had to reselect the 71/2 deg.... setting). Anyone else familiar with this and is there a fix. It really slows down the drafting. Ian
