Bluebeam 2018 issues

Bluebeam 2018 issues

RE: Bluebeam 2018 issues

We've been dealing with our supplier and Bluebeam over all the issues with 2018, they have said they are working on another update to hopefully address performance issues.

The last update 2018.5.0 was to address the stability issues with blank pages getting rendered.

RE: Bluebeam 2018 issues

Celt83, we've updated to 2018.5.0, but that didn't help either. a lot of lock-ups and crashes. Pulling my hair out. Almost ready to downgrade to 2017thumbsdown

RE: Bluebeam 2018 issues

Anyone on version 2019 yet, they seem to be saying they have fixed many of the rendering issues...

I've installed it on one of my laptops as I had 2018 new license purchased less than 30 days old so was eligible for a free upgrade to 2019. I'm not seeing any of the famed increases in render speed or smoothness though?

This bluebeam video suggests buttery smooth dragging around, and all I see is jerko-vision, content jumping all over the screen rendering the page at point where I stop dragging the window around (more like the 2017 version in the video).

I realise it just came out but has anyone else had any success with 2019 improving things? Maybe I'm just failing to see a setting or something.

RE: Bluebeam 2018 issues

Not likely we will be upgrading because of the 2018 fiasco and more so how it was handled.

Working thru all those past issues their higher level support techs indicated the performance was closely tied to what .Net version was installed on your machine. If you haven't already see if installing the latest package for that helps anything.

RE: Bluebeam 2018 issues

Pretty sure it installs it as part of the install package, but I'll take a look. I pretty much skipped over bluebeam 2018, but with new laptop came new license and presumably latest version of .net with latest windows.

I'm kind of used to the completely different interface now. At least its not any slower for me than 2017 was. However I was looking forward to that buttery smoothness they tempted me with.

I fail to believe I need some supercomputer to get equivalent smoothness to Adobe, which renders near perfectly on the same hardware.

RE: Bluebeam 2018 issues

I swear Bluebeam is just getting worse...

It seems every 5 minutes it hangs, crashes and then I need to kill it in Task Manager.

RE: Bluebeam 2018 issues

Never had issues with stability here.

Tried everything on their page about tips for improving rendering in 2019 and no change, still jerko-vision without the buttery smoothness promised. After a few days of use you forget about it I guess. If anyone has cracked the issue please post your settings/hardware/solutions!
