r13 Early Impressions

Just installed this morning. Hating the raster file handling, it's worse. I just attached several, they don't display until a manipulation like level on/off, ras display is used.

Then a little text editing, once you complete a single edit text command reverts to Default Tool. Single Click set to Locked in preferences.

We're just getting started with this dog, guess I'll go back to keeping a list and filing service tickets when I have time.

Anyone else feel like an unpaid beta tester?

Also crashed once today, just shut down, no error, no nothin.

  • My general impression is that it feels a bit more responsive and I like the new V8i mode implementation. However I see Bentley have just posted a blog with opening times. It seems (If I read it correctly) that unless you have a massive data set then V8i is still faster. IMO Connect should be faster in all situations.

    This Bentley blog discusses the DGN file opening times.  I've reproduced their table and added a column that shows the performance of CONNECT compared with V8i...

    Element Count

    FO Time (in sec) CE

    FO Time V8i (in sec)

    CONNECT vs V8i (below 100% means slower)

    Apparently, their conclusion is that we should all work with files greater than 800MB, because then we'll have a faster experience using CONNECT than with V8i!  Most of us, most of the time, are working with files well below 800MB, so we're stuck with a slower experience.
