AutoCAD 2013 :: Support File Search Path Automatically Removes Locations

Jul 19, 2012

I add 3 folder locations to the Support File Search Path. At random, all 3 of these locations disappear. I haven't tracked when this happens and what maybe happened previously, but I know I'm not the only one within my office that this has happened to. The paths are on a file server for our blocks.

Not sure how relevant this is, but I have a HP Z420 Workstation, W7-64-bit, Autodesk Building Design Suite Ultimate, using AutoCAD MEP 2013.

AutoCAD 2013 :: Options -> Support File Search Path

May 8, 2012

I have been changing setting in the Options dialog box for many years but have never made any changes directly to the "Working Support File Search Path" because these update automatically to reflect changes i make in the "Support File Search Path."

What is the purpose of these "Working" settings?

AutoCAD 2013 :: Quick Print Screen Of Support File Search Path?

Jun 12, 2012

Do a quick print screen of support file search path? Our computer's are set up by an outside source and I believe they did not migrate anything correctly or did something incorrectly. My issue specifically is anything to do with rendering and materials displaying is not working. I just want to make sure ACAD 2013 is looking at all the standard file locations along with our customization files. This is happening on 2 computers that have 2013 installed, all the rest are still using 2012 and this works fine. I tried exporting that profile, but still nothing works for rendering.

AutoCAD 2010 :: Support File Search Path Lost

May 12, 2011

When I migrated to 2012 form 2011, it only migrated a partial list of the support file search locations. So, I reset the ones that were missing and exported out my profile.

Next I saved my workspace to my name and checked the box to "automatically save workspace".

I shut my computer down for the night. When I restarted my computer, then AutoCAD 2012 the missing support paths are missing again. I am not the only one in the CAD department that is having this issue. It is so annoying to have to reset my profile every time I shut my computer down.

AutoCAD Visual LISP / AutoLISP :: Support File Search Path

Sep 18, 2013

Some of our 64-bit users lose their custom Support File Search Paths.

After reading about it, I saw that I could add them back in by putting

(setenv "ACAD" "S:\Fonts;S:\Acad2007\Hatch_Patterns;S:\Acad2007\Lisp;S:\Acad2007\Simpson\Menu;”)

at the end of acad2013.lsp.

1.  However, I get malformed string on input error in AutoCAD.

2.  My other question is do I need to list only the custom paths or all of the built-in paths as well?

AutoCAD Visual LISP / AutoLISP :: Setting Support File Search Paths In Routine?

Nov 8, 2013

I have a simple lisp routine that loads everytime one of my users opens a new drawing, It sets the printer paths, sets the template paths and sets a bunch of environment variables

One thing I would like to add to this lisp routine is the ability to add support file search paths.

Is there a simple setenv variable for this? or is it more complicated?

AutoCad 2D :: Difference Between Tool Palettes File Locations And Authoring Palette File Locations?

May 30, 2013

I am new to using Tool Palettes. I have created a folder on my C: drive which contains all my tool palettes. Right now, I get the symbol of a circle with a line drawn through it and cannot use my tool palettes.

In the Options tab, I noticed that there are the "Tool Palettes File Locations" and also "Authoring Palette File Locations". What is the difference between the two? Do I need to do something to both so I can use my tool palettes without difficulty?

Lightroom :: Automatically Append / Prepend Directory Names In File Path Into File Name Itself

Jan 23, 2014

Is it possible in Lightroom to automatically append/prepend directory names in the file path into the file name itself? Example:
DirectoryA Sub-directoryB filename.jpg  (original file name)
DirectoryA Sub-directoryB DirectoryA_Sub-directoryB_filename.jpg  (concatenated new file name)
If this is not natively possible within Lightroom, any plug-in that delivers this functionality?

AutoCAD 2013 :: Sharing 2013 Work Between Locations

May 29, 2013

What is the use of "regular" AutoCAD 2013 as compared to 2013 Mechanical.  The question is; our office is divided between Designers that use the regular AutoCAD edition and our Engineers that would like to use Mechanical (rather than the regular CAD).  Are there any conflicts resulting from sharing drawings between the two editions on AutoCAD (regular & Mechanical)?

If so, what would be the optimal method for these two departments to collaborate?

AutoCAD 2013 :: Saving Automatically When Closing File?

Apr 12, 2013

AutoCAD 2013, 60-90 days into it, upgraded from 2007.

I have 2 of 4 workstations with this issue, AutoCAD will automtically save the file when the files is closed, w/o any prompts to verify of we want to saved or not.

I have my Options|Autosave turned off, but this should not affect the save on close it should only create a continual ac$ backup file.

This is now the 2nd time this has occured. In early March we noticed this and in dealing with AutoCAD (Suscription Service) we finally deceided to restore AutoCAD to factory defaults, which did fix the issue at the time.  However it also meant that I needed to retore all the pathways and our standards.  Once completed, I paid particular attention to ensuring that AutoCAD was NOT saving the file on close and it was doing so up until earlier this week, when I noticed it SAVING on close again.

Now most of you might think, hey thats a good thing, however, we routinely will test modifications to our layouts on our working files, but dont want to actually modify those files and then we would simply close the drawing w/o saving thus ensuring that those mods were not saved.

In March, both 2007 & 2013 did this, however only my 2013 is affected now.

AutoCAD .NET :: Printer Configuration Search Path?

Nov 28, 2012

I need to set the Printer Configuration Search Path and the Plot Style Table Search Path. Currently I am using COM but the issue I have is that I need to run the same application on 2 different machines, one has only Autocad 2010 (xp-32bit), the other has both Autocad 2010 and Autocad 2012(win7-64bit) and I've got some difficulty to have it running.

Can I set those paths without using COM?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Sequence For Search Path

Nov 27, 2012

I am having an issue with my assembly grabbing an out of date part. I was wondering what the sequence for the search path Inventor goes thru. I assume it first searches the folder you are in but does it go down, up after that? If there is a part below which way does it go? Is there a possibility it could be grabbing the wrong part if it is not in the same folder?

AutoCAD 2010 :: Xref Search Path

My computer is not searching for the xrefs correctly. Whenever I switch to another job and try to load an xref, the computer searches under the last job I worked on and nothing else. I have several folders listed as search paths but it just seems to be ignoring them. We never used to have this problem and I cannot figure out what has changed.

AutoCAD .NET :: How To Insert Block Not On Drawing In Search Path

Sep 16, 2011

I am trying to insert a block (using .Net) that does not already exist on the drawing.  It is on a network share, which is in the search path.  If I, from the command line insert the block, it finds it ok and inserts it.  But when I do this from .Net code it does not search for the block.  So how do you get it to search for the block and insert it?

Here is a code snippet I'm using to insert the block:

Dim myDwg AsDocument = Application.DocumentManager.MdiActiveDocument
Using myDocLock AsDocumentLock= myDwg.LockDocument()
Using myTrans AsTransaction= myDwg.TransactionManager.StartTransaction
'Open the database for WriteDim myBT AsBlockTable = CType(myDwg.Database.BlockTableId.GetObject(OpenMode.ForRead), BlockTable)

AutoCAD Inventor :: Template Locations In 2013

Oct 19, 2012

How do I set up the templates in 2013? we just migrated from 2012 and now some of the templates are not showing up. When we installed the vault we created a drive that the vault resides in. The templates also reside on this drive but outside of the vault. in 2012 when  I selected the icon to create a new part/assy/drawing I would get the following drop down menu:

 now in 2013 we have a new and imporved splash screen with more options, I think:

However as you can see, there is nothing to choose. If I use the drop down arrow this work, but not much as I have the 4 standard part, assy, drawing and project icons appear. We have used the options menu and changed the file search paths to point to our template folder but we still do not have any options in the new menu and the drop still does not show options for sheetmetal or square parts. The drawing does open with the correct template though. I have also opened each template in 2013 and saved it so it should be migrated to the new format. but that has not worked. How to set up the new splash menu to work?

AutoCAD 2013 :: Relative File Path For DXE?

I am trying to write a standard scrpit file for a data extraction using -EATTEXT. I plan for others to use this script file on different computers, so I will not be able to put in a full file path; it will need to remain relative. Unfortunately, AutoCAD will not recognize a relative file path entered into the command line for -EATTEXT.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Autodesk 360 File - File Locking Across Multiple Locations?

Jan 14, 2013

Does Autodesk 360 cloud storage work in any way shape or form similar to a Vault whereby users can check out, lock, and then check in designs? Can Vault be used in conjunction with Autodesk 360, or does Autodesk 360 eliminate or replace the need for Vault?

What's the best way for individuals working at multiple sites to work without overwriting each others' data or having save collisions?

AutoCAD Visual LISP / AutoLISP :: Get Filename From Outside The Search Path?

Jul 30, 2013

I'm trying to get the file name of a file outside the search path. Obviously (findfile) is not an option. The file location changes with each project so adding a search path is also not an option. I can get the path to the file but i can't seem to figure out how to get the file name. I can also get the first set of characters, as they are constant from project to project, it's just the end of the file name that changes. The file is always a PDF.

AutoCAD Visual LISP / AutoLISP :: Using Multiple Search Path?

Dec 17, 2013

I'm using a Lisp which searches a certain folder and then updates all blocks, which are nested in that folder.

My issue is, that I'd like to use more than one folder on different path, where the LISP can search for this files. Is there a way to use multiple search path?

The code I'm using now to search for the blocks is: (setq dir "I:\AutoCAD Blöcke\Template\Support")
