Is Chief X8 or X9 playing nicely with Apple Sierra OS?

Recommended Posts

I have waited patiently to upgrade my iMac to Sierra because of all the problems I experience with Chief when I upgrade to a new version of Apple's OS.  It is now the middle of Feb. are people still having problems with crashing?


I also have NOT downloaded Chief X 9 because of the same issues--I have been snake bit too many times with crashing, losing hours of work, graphics not displaying properly etc.  I just want to avoid all of those headaches and am hopeful that the kinks have been worked out.

I have a Mac with Sierra.  X8 worked well...just installed X9 - so haven't used long enough to know for sure...but, so far no problems.  


Scott Hall has a Mac...don't believe he's had problems.  He may chime in.

Thank you both.  I downloaded Sierra and so far it is working great with X8.  I have not downloaded X9 and will do so as soon as I finish the project I am working on.


Hopefully, when I do, I will not have a problem.

      Dang nabbit. Is it just me or is anyone else having this issue? Since last weeks update, 6 crashes in the space of 2 client presentations on a new MacBook pro. Since the update today 3 crashes in the space of half an hour on my iMac ( never had this issue before ). Basically making the software unusable at the moment.

      I have been working in X10 w latest update, setting up my defaults in a custom floor plan template for my kitchen or bath remodels.  When I check out my door style selections etc in the full camera view, the cabinet lines are blurry and jagged WHEN the camera view is at an angle.  When the camera view is straight on like a wall elevation, everything is perfect. I edited the current camera and turned off bloom, reflections, ambient occlusion etc., but it made no difference.  I hope someone can tell me how to eliminate or improve what should be a straight forward quick view of a room.  Thank you so much.
      iMac Retina 5K, OS High Sierra--
      I have several screen shots showing:
      1.  A straight on full camera view without these issues
      2.  An angled camera view and Chief Architect default camera settings
      3. An angled camera view with all of the default camera settings turned off.

      I am planning to finally make the move from windows pc to mac sometime later this fall.  I am tired of all the problems with pc, viruses, windows 10 and Microsoft.  Seams like you have to be a computer tech to use now days.  Can any of you mac users out there give me feedback on your imac system, what you have, memory, graphics card, etc. and how Chief Architect is running speed wise on your system, any other thoughts?  I'm looking at the 27" imac and others specs yet to be determined.

      I invested in a new Epson printer an all-in-one wide format WF 7610.  I am experiencing extremely SLOW printing speeds when I send the layout file to print with each page taking approximately 7 minutes to print--I timed it.  
      All drivers & software have been updated,  I have both the page setup correct and print layout correct and the print quality for the printer is "normal".  Have been on the phone with Chief and we've doubled checked all my printer settings, but they aren't familiar with Epson.
      Has anyone else experienced this issue?  I replaced an HP wide format all in one with the new Epson which is Apple compatible since the drivers in my HP were so old.
      Not sure now if I need to return it.  Thanks for any input.
