Hi all. New to X9 from like V10.0something. The undo command back THEN was a major shortcoming of this program. It still is today. Might even be worse, IMO. I am currently renting-to-own this program and overall am very happy with a lot of the new features that have been added over the years but this lack of functionality with the Undo command is a major disappointment. It really impedes the creative process when you're constantly thinking about how long it will take to Undo the commands you need to implement in order to test drive a new design element. Having to constantly save and reboot is a major pain in the butt. On top of that you cant even see what commands you are actually undoing while it is lagging out or if the undo command was even recognized by the program at all. This is simply awful. I think this issue is what keeps Chief in the minor leagues. To be able to do and undo on the fly is critical for good design.
I am really considering terminating my rent-to-own over this unless there is some workaround I am missing. I have tried turning off all unnecessary elements, layers, etc and it really doesn't help. I am running on a very capable laptop that blows through all of my other design programs - AutoCAD, Sketchup, Revit, etc. It can even do heavy Raytracing without effecting my work in Chief or any other applications running simultaneously. Interestingly enough the Undo command doesn't get worse while Raytracing - its just always horrible,
I really want to add this program to my tool box. If anyone has any help on this or news of CA attempts to fix this issue I would greatly appreciate it!
I bit the bullet from Home Designer and just paid for X9...I am on a Macbook Pro with 16GB RAM... it's super slow and I keep getting the spinning wheel of death. I have no problems running other complicated programs such as Adobe's Creative Suite..
2.6 GHz Intel Core i7
16 GB 1600 MHz DDR3
NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M 2048 MB
Intel Iris Pro 1536 MB
Chief Architect X9 library thumbs nails load slow. Anyone have a similar issue? Here is my system.
Windows 10 Pro
Intel Core i7-6900K
Nvidia GTX 1070
Crucial MX300 275GB SSD
Crucial 4X4GB DDR4 2400 RAM
I have Chief X8 and X9 on this system. in X8 the thumbnails load as expected. In X9 they take a long time.
I have taken a picture of Mirrors and Frames. The thumbnails in this folder take about 4 seconds to load. When I open the same folder in X8 it takes a little over 1 second. This may seem insignificant, but when you are doing things like changing doors I need to wait for all of the door thumbnails to load before I can pick the one I want. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the program.
