heinerdFri May 27, 2011 9:43 amThie workaround does not seem to work for me. I have an Acer Aspite Z5610 Machine, running Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit, which has a touchscreen. I have searched everything on this machine to see if any Wacom Drivers are loaded but have come up with absolutely nothing. I can't seem to find any place where I can de-activate the touchscreen, which I don't really need, but I am also not sure if the touchscreen is causing the crash.
Please help as this is really a nuisence as I am working on a project where I have to do renderings and i need to update some of the materials that I has changed in revit 2011 and 2012 does not seem to find the path to the image files.
loboarchTue May 31, 2011 9:33 pmI am sorry to hear this is still a problem for you. It is hard to know exactly what the issue might be? I would suggest you contact our product support team so they can work more closely with you to find the cause of the problem.

janus13Fri Jul 8, 2011 8:15 amThere seems to be a connection between speed of refresh in the materials editor and the size of the project and number of instances assigned the material being edited. It's especially evident when working in the appearance tab.
A good example is a project with 100 windows, 50 or so doors and trim openings assigned the same material. It's necessary to wait for minutes after each click while cycling through material options, before even clicking OK or Apply. Revit behaves here as if it were querrying each family instance within the model, from the Materials->Appearance dialogue, for each change to a meterial, before final selection is made and we hit OK. This is unbelievably slow! What should happen is letting us tweak our materials, and then querry the families when we close out of the Materials window. I was able to validate this in the same model by changing the material of a family that had a separate, different material and only 1 instance existed. The process was exponentially faster.
Serget704Wed Sep 19, 2012 7:06 amI have the same problem with 2013 Revit architecture suite, after to had reinstall 3 times with Autodesk instructions. I don't have any Wascom.
I must use my 2012 version for my next projects.
pattygaleWed Sep 19, 2012 8:06 amThis discussion forum post indicates that some folks are able to resolve the issue by performing a clean uninstall and re-install. (See alan.quinn's post and the link he provides.) If that does not work for you, I suggest that this issue is best handled by our Product Support Team. Visit the Product Support page to learn how to contact them directly, or post your issue to the Autodesk Discussion Forums where the user community and Product Support Team work together to answer users’ questions.
