My windows laptop has been giving me grief lately and is about to be non-functional. Today I installed the MAC version of SU (17.3.116) and all the plugins I use. I moved over all my SU files and have been successful at opening and ensuring the plugins work. My MAC is High Sierra 10.13.6 version.
A couple things I see and am trying to figure out.
1 - printing templates in windows (parallel projection and a standard top view) I had a screen with numerous settings that I don’t see in MAC. The 3 screens I have are very limited (page setup, document setup, print). There is no print preview but when I hit print I see the preview - so I guess that is it? In the document setup screen I have the ability to set the scale but that’s it. I suppose I don’t need all the other settings that windows presented when I did a preview and then print, which always showed the same settings.
2 - confirming that the toolbar is at the top and only at the top, whereas windows had the large toolbar on the left side, MAC I guess did away with that and I am limited to piling the top with all my icons?
3 - I found the Model Info when I open my project but where are the general settings, preferences? Like where my files will be saved, setting the preferences in general? Model Info has a ‘file’ in the list but seems like it’s just for the current project I have open. The preferences or some such thing of items are missing and that was on another menu item.
4 - Entity Info - what happened to my nice “I can find components, layout, materials, etc”? In windows when I opened the entity there was a lot of other items at my finger tips. I don’t recall the first time using windows that I had to find and open all these things. Now all I get is the entity info and nothing else. Do I have to open them all individually, somewhere?
“Is change always better?”
