Hi,

Just tried MM2 on Catalina, can't import KML - MM2 crashes

Any news on when an update will be available?

TIA

Hi Alasdair,

Catalina support is a priority - can you share the crash report, or the KML causing a crash?

Evan,

I too am having issues with imports and Catalina.  I cannot get a ShapeFile to import without it crashing the application.  In addition, when I start a new map using the Physical World template, I cannot see any of the shapefile detail.  The co-ordinate grid layer shows, but the physical earth shows nothing.

Was Magic Maps 2 not tested with OS X Catalina?

Hi Gary,

There will be an update later this week addressing certain Shapefile crashes - this appears to be an issue unrelated to Catalina.

What hardware are you running? I have received a few reports about specific GPUs on Catalina not working with image layers (e.g. the Physical World template). I test the software on all the hardware that I can get my hands on, but some hardware combinations such as the iMac Pro are beyond my testing budget.

Evan,


Thanks for the quick response.  I'll look out for that update.  I have a 2012 Retina MacBook Pro.  Here are the full specs: 2.7 GHz Quad-Core Intel core i7 with 16 GB of 1600 MHz DDR3 RAM.  NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M 1GB Intel HD Graphics 4000 1536 MB.

Thanks Gary - is there a message in the system log when you try to open the Physical World template? You can check:

Applications > Utilities > Console > system.log

Sorry for the delay.  Here is what I see:

Evan,


It worked for the built in GeoTiffs but not for the large GeoTiff files I was able to import in the prior version.  I keep getting the following error-message, which would seem to imply there's some new width limit.  I'm getting very frustrated.

Application Specific Information:
Performing @selector(saveSheet:) from sender NSButton 0x7fbc8d5ec0f0
validateTextureDimensions:1227: failed assertion `MTLTextureDescriptor has width (21600) greater than the maximum allowed size of 16384.'

Help please!

Hi Gary,

Thanks for the report. It looks like this issue affects large GeoTIFF files with 24-bit color - I'll get a fix out ASAP.

Hi Gary,

Please try the 2.2.1 update, available in the App Store today. It should fix the GeoTIFF issue that you were experiencing.
