Have only recently purchased and installed X5. I am coming from PSPv9 (and doing so reluctantly.)
I am attempting to duplicate the tool toolbar that I am use to in PSPv9 in X5. I have been successful except for one group. In PSPv9, the Dropper tool and the Color Replacer tool are in the same group. I have been able to create a new Button Group and place both tools into it. What I can not figure out is how to have the new button group display an icon. All other groups display the icon of the first tool in the group listing.
I just loaded 2014 onto a new computer and poof every custom toolbar has a question mark. Yet the image displays on the preview in the cui.
All of my button images are in a folder on my C: drive and that path is in the support file search path.
I went to one of the buttons and click on the small and large image and browsed to the folder with the BMP files and clicked it for both small and large.. And when I clicked 'ok' everything started to display correctly.

I'm trying to find a way to add a custom button to my ribbon that will launch a global rule or form using VB. I know of a way using VBA but I want to get away from VBA. I'd much rather create an add with VB and use that.
I have a Logitech mouse that uses Set Point. I would like the sideways function of my wheel to function as Pan. In Acads CUI there is a list of ten buttons which different functions. How do I know which button is which? None of them have Pan by default, so how can I add it to a specific button?
I have this vba code that created in 2009 autocad 32 bit environment. I am fixing it so it will work for the 2013 autocad civil 3D 2013 64 bit environment.
The code work fine in the old vision but keep on crushing in the new one . I fixed the references and also move up the search path to the top, but it showing compile errors or runtime errors like the following.
if you ignore that error and run it agin it will go to the next step and show you another errors. after a few rerun it will give the result.I try fix it with an older vision library of autocad 2009 and 2012 both gives an run time error message.
I have been using a dialog box with checkboxes for creating layers for the past 5 years now with minimal problems. I don't know much about VBA code, but when there is a problem, I can usually figure out what is going on, which is generally a typo the causes it to error. The code was created by an employee that left the company about 3 months after I started.
After installing acad 2013 and the VBA enabler this code only partially works. It will create the layer in the drawings, but will not set the color, linetype or the description. When I click on the checkbox for any of the layer checkboxes I get a "Run-time error '13': Type mismatch" error. I click on the "Debug" button which opens VBA, the "This Drawing.Layers.Add" line in the below code is highlighted.
As a troubleshooting effort, I tried retyping the ".Color" line, when I had typed out "m_refg_pipe_n." a drop-down box appears, but "Color" is not an option anymore. The only color option in the list is TrueColor, which we do not use. In the next line of the below code, "Description" is an option. So I am guessing that the ".Color" line of code is the problem.
Private Sub CheckBox101_Click() Dim m_refg_pipe_n As AcadLayer Set m_refg_pipe_n = ThisDrawing.Layers.Add("m-refg-pipe-n") m_refg_pipe_n.Color = acGreen m_refg_pipe_n.Linetype = "Hidden" m_refg_pipe_n.Description = "MN - Refrigerant Piping" End Sub
I am upgrading the AutoCAD 2009 X 32 systems to the 2013 X64, and I have this vab code that won't work on the new system. I try to move the search path that contain the file up to the top and also got all the missing libraries, but the code still won't work.When I run the code it will give me error message like: compile error:
Function or interface marked as restricted, or the function uses an Automation type not supported in Visual Basic. The code work perfectly without any error on the old system so I sure the code is causing this error.
Is there any possible way to enter a G Code into AutoCAD to end with the result of a 2D drawing of what my CNC has made? I have the code from the machine, and am not sure how to input it into the program to draw the face the CNC has cut out.
I have an animation that runs for around 2 minutes. I want to add a button that the user can click to pause/play this animation if they want extra time to read the content on screen. I'm not sure how to tell a button to pause at the current frame and resume when clicked by the user. The button will also need to change states from a pause image to a play image when clicked and vice-versa.
I am copying chunks of code from the My First Plugin tutorial and am using the code that opens Inventor to start the form. I have both Inventor 2012 and 2013 installed on my system. I have gone in to the properties and changed the .dll reference file to read out of the bin/PublicAssemblies folder in 2013, however, when I run my Windows Form, it will open Inventor 2012 instead.
I'm following the steps in the following link from Adobe:
The final step, after selecting the folder I want to add, is to select Import. Except, the Import button remains grayed out. I'm not sure what to do in order to select Import and add the folder I already have.
I want a to create a tool button on the annotate tab of the ribbon. The button will toggle between having the 'display line weights' box (on the drawing tab of the application options dialog box) ticked or not ticked.
I have the settings set to display true line weights. (so i can visualize how the actual print will look, but need it off to be able to draft properly).
I am running LT 2013. I have the Group Ribbon turned on and use it constantly. Until recently, whenever I would select the "Ungroup" button on the ribbon, a box would appear below the ribbon with a couple of button choices, "Accept" or something else.
I was looking at the shortcut list a couple of weeks ago, and went to turn off the command line (ctrl+9), and apparently entered the wrong command. In trying to undo my error, I probably entered some other commands, of which I have no idea what was entered. As a result, My "Ungroup" "Accept" button no longer shows up.
I know I just turned off a setting. But, I have been through the "Shortcut Key" list and I can't find it. I've been through the listings with AutoCAD LT 2013, and I have looked through the forums to no avail. And turthfully,, there are other text readouts that I used to get when doing a command that seem to be missing too. However, for now, I'd like getting the "Ungroup" "Accept" button turnd back on. I'll worry about the other ones later.
i have downloaded autocad on a new computer and i am amazed i can draw and dimension at the same time.
first of all how do you ENABLE and disable this option because the other autocad app that i have on another computer doesn't work like this and second, how come the delete button doesn't work and how to enable this option because right now i have to use other features such as Trim and it's slow.
I have a few sites that I use just to keep FeatureLines that I'm using for construction and don't want them interacting with anything in other sites. Of the when I draw an FL in one of those sites I'll get a message such as "Updating 286 points". This takes over 2 minutes to accomplish.
Since I don't have a lot of FeatureLines in the sited I wouldn't expect it to take that long. If it were a complicated site I might not think anything of it. If I add another FL I will still get the same message with the same # of points. So it isn't based on the number of vertices in the FL in that site or it would increase after adding each FL. There is no Surface that uses these FL. So It isn't updating a TIN.

BTW. If I delete the FL I don't get any message or lag.
However everytime I try to resize it there is no frame to pul from and with QR codes you have to be careful so you have to depress the Shift key to keep the QR code readable. I can't pull from the corners as there doesn't seem to be a frame around the image to pull the image smaller. Am I missing something here possibly in the settings somewhere.
I added a couple of standard Autocad MAP tabs to a custom panel and in my custom workspace some of the button images don't show up. If I go to the Planning & Analysis workspace, the images are visible, but in the custom workspace, all I get are clouds with a question mark.
I attached two screen shots.
