Rhino for Mac Wenatchee 5 Build 2014-07-28

There is a new Mac Work In Progress (WIP) build available, Wenatchee 2014–07–28.

This Mac release includes all applicable updates and fixes from Rhino for Windows V5.9 (SR9).

This Mac WIP release also includes these Mac-specific changes:
  • Changes
    • Rhino now always asks to keep changes when closing documents if you have not explicitly saved your changes. The state of the System Preferences setting “Ask to keep changes when closing documents” is no longer used.
    • When commands like Explode produced more that one line of output, only the last line would be visible in the status line. Now a popup window temporarily shows all the output from the completed command.
    • Dialogs such as the analysis dialogs and the Osnaps dialog when under the cursor no longer use a dark theme. The dark theme that is currently used in Rhino is not visually compatible with the dark theme in OS X Yosemite.
    • The “Distance between items” field in the ArrayCrv dialog now accepts values that include units.
  • Fixes
    • The code that creates model preview images has been replaced and should fix the intermittent “black preview” issue.
    • Autosaves to a remote network could be slow because Rhino would keep the modeling views from updating until the autosave was completed. This has been fixed.
    • Several issues with OS X Yosemite have been fixed.
    • Other crashes have been fixed.
Please report any problems you find in the Rhino for Mac support forum.

Requires latest version of OS X Lion (10.7.5), latest version of OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.5) or any version of OS X Mavericks.

Rhino for Mac Wenatchee 5 Build 2014-07-14

There is a new Mac Work In Progress (WIP) build available, Wenatchee 2014–07–14.

This Mac release includes all applicable updates and fixes from Rhino for Windows V5.9 (SR9).

This Mac WIP release also includes these Mac-specific changes:
  • Additions
    • The COLLADA or Digital Asset Exchange file exporter (.dae) has been added. OS X natively displays .dae files in Preview and the Finder, so this is a useful format for distributing Rhino models to other OS X users who want to view the model but do not have Rhino.
  • Changes
    • The applicable updates and fixes from Rhino for Windows V5.9 (SR9) have been merged into this WIP release.
    • Command options in the left sidebar have been tuned up to improve readability.
    • Typing a command now uses a smarter autocomplete. A typed command will autocomplete with your most most recent commands listed first. It will also display non-exact matches if there is room enough to list them.
    • SelVisible has been enabled again. If it continues to generate crashes it will be disabled until it gets further work.
  • Fixes
    • After printing using vector format, zooming in a view would not work correctly. This is fixed.
    • Other crashes have been fixed.
Please report any problems you find in the Rhino for Mac support forum.

Requires latest version of OS X Lion (10.7.5), latest version of OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.5) or any version of OS X Mavericks.

Rhino for Mac Wenatchee 5 Build 2014-06-30

There is a new Mac Work In Progress (WIP) build available, Wenatchee 2014–06–30.

This Mac release includes all applicable updates and fixes from Rhino for Windows V5.8 (SR8).

This Mac WIP release also includes these Mac-specific changes:
  • Fixes
    • Using either the Open file dialog or the Export dialog would crash on 10.7.5. This has been fixed.
    • Some keyboard shortcuts would not work when a command was running. This has been fixed.
    • The top screen edge macro now ignores top screen edge touches directly above the application menu. These touches only invoke the macro when you touch the top screen edge to the right of the Help menu item. This makes the top screen macro much more usable.
    • Other crashes have been fixed.
Please report any problems you find in the Rhino for Mac support forum.

Requires latest version of OS X Lion (10.7.5), latest version of OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.5) or any version of OS X Mavericks.

There is a new Mac Work In Progress (WIP) build available, Wenatchee 2014–06–23.

    • Switching to another Rhino modeling window now cancels any pending command in the previous modeling window.
    • The Import command now works the same as Rhino for Windows.
    • Both the Open and Save dialogs have a new Options button that allows access to the import or export options dialog for the selected file format.
    • Adding or modifying a command alias now immediately updates the command auto-complete list.
    • Changing the grid settings for all viewports in a template now works.

Rhino for Mac Wenatchee 5 Build 2014-06-10

There is a new Mac Work In Progress (WIP) build available, Wenatchee 2014–06–10.

This Mac release includes all applicable updates and fixes from Rhino for Windows V5.8 (SR8).

This Mac WIP release also includes these Mac-specific changes:
  • Changes:
    • In Preferences > View, you can now enter more decimal digits, which allows slower zooming speeds.
    • The tutorial models have been replaced. The next time you select Help > Learn Rhino > Open Tutorial Models… in the application menu, a dialog will state that there are no tutorial models on your computer and ask you if you wish to download the tutorial models.
    • The storage of Aliases has changed. Previously, only your changed aliases were saved, and these were automatically merged with (and overwritten by) the default set of aliases. This made it impossible to delete default aliases or change default aliases. With the 2014–06–10 WIP release, this is changed.
    • If you had custom aliases prior to 2014–06–10 and also want to use default aliases, do the following:
      • In Rhinoceros > Preferences > Aliases, export your aliases to a text file using the gear pulldown menu at the bottom of the window.
      • In the same gear menu, select Reset alias to default.
      • In the save gear menu, select Import aliases from file… and navigate to the file where you saved your previous aliases. This will merge your current custom aliases with the default aliases.
  • Fixes
    • Anti-aliasing was inadvertently disabled in the previous WIP release. This has been fixed.
    • Vector printing in perspective view is now enabled.
    • Other crashes have been fixed.
Please report any problems you find in the Rhino for Mac support forum.

Requires latest version of OS X Lion (10.7.5), latest version of OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.5) or any version of OS X Mavericks.

    • Other crashes have been fixed.
