Completely at the end of my patience now.
This software is steadily becoming unusable - not to mention that saving something has absolutely no effect because when the ‘bugsplat’ things popup and everything closes, I loose all progress and a version saved several days ago loads in its place - despite FREQUENT saving from me manually (turned autosave off as that was very unstable).
My main issue however:
The F*CKING STYLES.
I want to model in full colour - its how I determine which parts are complete, which need attention, which are ordered, etc etc.
I want the body of the piece to be, for example red, with the lines BLACK. so I can still see its shape.
This doesnt happen. I make the piece red, the lines go pink.
I click Window>Styles and then have to change Colour: By Material to ALL THE SAME every few minutes as it just keeps automatically reverting.
Whenever I save it reverts to By Material and everything goes to sh*t again.
As you can see in the top image - the lines are not defined in black. - Apart from the new part that is still the standard white. I cant do the whole model in white as it just looks awful and is a total pain to keep on top of things.
The bottom image is how I want it to look. This is how it has looked for years. I have no idea why its started doing it. I have no new extensions (as uninstalled them thinking that was the issue!)
I dont save parts as components, I save them as groups. Have done for years. Not entirely sure why.
Im at the point where I just want to delete the entire thing, strip every single trace of it from my system and go elsewhere.
