TC 2018 Help in Deciding to upgrade? Playing around with the Demo.

Ok, Thought I would start a new thread specifically about 2018 Deluxe.  And how it works.  I am trying to decide if I like it better than 2017.  So far, maybe.  Here are some things I don't like.  Probably me,  or a setting.  Not the software, but maybe. 

Does not  render as smoothly when rotating a drawing?  I would think it would do it better?  Advice?  Can anyone actually see my settings if I upload it?  Attaching it anyway.   The drawing was created in 2017, don't know if that has anything to do with it or not?




I cannot get objects to move into the symbols library?  Is it because I am running a demo version right now?


Rendering and light, does look better to me.  so far.  Just slower.


I am sure I will have more input/questions as I fool around with it. 


Thanks in advance for any advice.

Sorry, you have not receiving answers yet.   This year I bought the RedSDK plugin for pro, instead of buying deluxe, so I can't be of any assistance.   one setting you could check though is, Options menu - Native draw - tick Flicker free draw.   That said I doubt that would affect rendering.

I just decided to uninstall Deluxe 2018.  I am going to stick with 2017 for now.  I cannot get 2018 to work right, maybe me, maybe bugs, I don't know.  I am just not comfortable with it.  Seems to act much differently than 2017.  And, now since uninstalling 2018, my drawings will not open in 2017?  What in the world could cause that?

Unless you specified otherwise, any drawings you saved from 2018 are in 2018 format, which is different from 2017 format. Version 2017 does not recognize 2018 format.

Take Down a trial of Expert, resave the actual drawings to 2017
Expert is sort of a pimped up Deluxe
