AutoCAD Inventor :: 2013 - Open Dialog Does Not Retain Resizing After Parts List Export

Jun 10, 2012

I had resized the File>Open dialog in Inventor.  I had resized it so that it was quite large so I realized pretty quickly when I opened another file, that the window size had rest to its original size.

What I found was that if I export a parts list to excel, then go to File>Open, for some reason the size of my file>open dialog is cleared.

AutoCAD 2013 :: Can't Save UCS Name In Dialog Box

Aug 11, 2013

In ACAD 2007 when I create a new UCS, the dialog box shows as current an unnamed UCS which I can then rename. In 2014, this doesn't happen - I have to do all that using the command line. Is there some setting to get the dialog box to work?

AutoCAD 2013 :: Save As And Export (FBX) Dialog Boxes Are Gone?

Apr 19, 2012

I lost my dialog boxes for SAVEAS and EXPORT.  I tried the CMDDIA system variable but had no luck.  I can't stand having to type in full paths for files that I'm trying to save.

I would imagine that alot of my other dialog boxes default back to command line as well.

AutoCAD 2013 :: Save As Dialog Box Opens In Wrong Folder

Feb 28, 2013

We had a project folder named A.  We created a new project folder named B and copied the AutoCad files from A to B.  On one of our workstations if you open a drawing from folder B, then click save as, the dialog opens to folder A.

Not a big problem, but since the files are named the same it can be confusing...

AutoCAD 2013 :: Dual Monitors - Open / Save Dialog Boxes?

Jan 9, 2014

I've been running dual monitors (22" and a 18") for a while, but I just upgraded to a larger second monitor (now both 22").  Before, I left AutoCAD running in the main monitor, but now I've switched it to run in the second monitor instead.  Now AutoCAD will not remember the position or size of the Open and Save dialog boxes while it is in the second monitor.  Sometimes it throws them back into the main monitor and other times they show up in the second but without the resize I did previously.

AutoCad :: 2013 / Open Drawing Dialog Box - Select Initial View

Jun 28, 2012

I recently purchased AutoCAD Civil 3D 2013 and all of a sudden when I select "File", and "Open", the dialog box from which I am supposed to select a drawing file has a small "Initial View" box with a small check box to "Select Initial View". This box seems docked to the right side of the "Select File" dialog box but I am unable to select the check box. It seems to do nothing. Is this a glitch?

AutoCAD 2010 :: Publishing Dialog Won't Accept Changes For Layer Settings

Jun 12, 2012

My issue is with the Publish dialogue.  I am publishing several sheets to PDF.  I do not want layers to be available in the PDF.  I shoud be able to control whether or not layers export with the PDF in the "Publish dialogue box > Publish Options > General DWF/PDF options > Layer Information"  (then there are two options, either to include or not include layer information).  However, when I change it to "don't include" and close out of that box, the main Publish dialogue still shows the layer option as included and the layers are in the PDF after I publish it.  why the layers still show up?

AutoCAD 2013 :: Prompt / Save In 2013 Drawing Format?

Nov 14, 2012

As many of us seam to do the option to save by default to an older version of AutoCAD or universal DXF format is selected, my problem is however when you save an existing drawing a prompt appears asking if 'Drawing*.dxf last saved in AutoCAD 2004 format. Save in AutoCAD 2013 Drawing format?' this has annoyed me for years!

I have set it as default DXF 2014 for a good reason I don’t want a prompt asking me if I want to then save it as 2013 or I would have set it like that on my default setting, gets on your nerves when you are doing 100's of files.

AutoCAD 2010 :: Publishing DSD File Message / Model Tab Included In Published List

Mar 30, 2009

If I open a drawing created in 2009 and try to publish it in 2010, DSD file message pops saying about unsaved changes (see attached). Since I don't use sheet sets, I do not have any use for DSD file. Is there a way to disable it?

In 2009 it was simple not to include model tab while publishing. Where is this option in 2010? I don't want to remove model tab from the list every time I publish drawings.

AutoCAD 2013 :: Unable To Save To Drawing

Jul 30, 2013

I recently started having trouble when I try to save a file. It started about an hour ago. I have been working on this file all day with no problems. What is happening is when I do a quick save or a save as I get an error that says "unable to save to drawing F:NNorthview SchoolsHS - Phase 5, 6 & 7NH-EPSF1A13.dwg. Drawing saved to F:NNorthview SchoolHS - Phases 5,6 & 7savACD.tmp"

If I do a save as It will say the same thing but it will delete the existing file that I tried to save over. I have to do another save as to get the file back. I think this is specific to this drawing because I have not had it happen with any other file.

I ran Recover on the two exref files as well as the working file. No errors are found. I have purged all the files and tried again but it did not work.

AutoCAD 2013 :: Unable To Save Drawing

Oct 23, 2012

I am using Map 3D 2013 on a Windows 7 machine and am getting the following error when I try to do any save, q save or saveas: "One or more objects in this drawing cannot be saved to the specified format. The operation was not completed and no file was created."

I was working in this file yesterday and received the same error at one point.  I shut CAD down and did something for a few hours before I came back and everything operated normally for a little while.  I was able to make edits and save.  But then this morning the error is back.  Even upon opening the file and immediately trying to qsave it will give me the error.  I have run an audit, purged, tried to copy everything out and save to a new file.  Nothing appears to be working. 

We do run network licenses and I am pulling my drawings from a server, nothing is local to my machine.

AutoCAD LT :: 2013 - Unable To Save To Drawing Message

Aug 16, 2012

Several times, with different files, I get a message when I try to save a drawing using ctrl-S (or when clsoing an un-saved dwg);

Unable to save to drawing B: (file location folder)file name.

Drawing saved to B: (same file location folder)savD214.tmp

The only option is to click OK

Now there are several .tmp files in my job folder. I haven't tried to open them or anything else.

The original file will be lost if I close the drawing. I've had this happen when I clsoe the drawing before saving it - I'll get a message asking if I want to save the draiwng before closing it, and then I'll get this message, click OK, and the file will be gone. I have to to the .bak file, make a copy of it and change the file extension name to .dwg to get the file back.

If I get this message when I'm just doing a ctrl-S save, I immediately do a "save-as", copy over the original file name, and everything seems to be fine.

AutoCAD 2013 :: Unable To Save Drawing As It Is Being Accessed By Another Session

Oct 8, 2012

I have the same problem reported here : [URL]

Fresh installation of Windows Small Business 2011 standard

Disabled offline and cache on shared directories

Removed the router (server and computers in "standalone", just joined by a gigabit switch 5 ports, 2m of cables between the compure and the server)

Installed latest evaluation of Autocad LT 2013

No Antivirus; firewall settings by default

The user is the only one who access to the autocad files.

Still the problem.

The user does want work on the network anymore unless the problem is solved, which is annoying because only the server has a backup routine.

AutoCAD LT :: Cannot Overwrite PDF When Publishing In 2013

Feb 6, 2013

We seem to be unable to overwrite a PDF that we created with AutoCAD when PDFing anew with AutoCAD. In other words, I "Plot" a file in AutoCAD and PDF it as "New File A". When I later realize I made a drafting mistake and want to overwrite it, when I "Plot" it says the file is in use or write protected or something of that nature so I have to PDF it as "New File B" and then manually delete "New File A" and then rename "New File B". I might add I do not have to close AutoCAD to do this.

AutoCAD 2010 :: Selection Pop-up Dialog Box - How To Turn It Off

Jan 11, 2011

My AutoCAD has started doing something different, I don't remember turning it on, and now I can't figure out how to turn it off.

What happens is when I hover the mouse near two or more objects a little blue box icon appears telling me that there is multiple objects there. Then, if I click, it asks me which object I want to select. URL....

AutoCad :: Publishing Drawings And Determining Which Space The Drawing Is In

Oct 4, 2011

I've got a persisitant problem with the publishing feature in autocad. I know how to set up bulk print of drawings using publish.

However the drawings are a mixed lot (some in paper some in layout). Is there a way to determine the state of the drawing without opening each one. In my case there is thousands of drawings and of course i do not have the manpower to inspect each one.

AutoCAD 2013 :: Publishing To Single Pdf File

Dec 4, 2012

I have no problems publishing to one file from multiple tabs, or plotting to multiple single files named after each tab.  I want to batch plot to a single file with bookmarks named after each tab in my AutoCad file.  I would think that it would name each bookmark "Filename-TabName" as it goes down the batch plotting (publishing) list.  Right now, I print to individual files and combine.  This creates bookmarks for each filename like I want, but I have to name my tabs in order, or re-order everything each time which is time consuming.

Is there a setting to create bookmarks as you print to a single file that are named after each tab? This would be cool and very useful.  I cannot imagine that I am the only one who wants this.

AutoCAD 2013 :: Publishing Multiple Drawings To PDF

Jan 28, 2013

I've started having a problem with the Publish command when publishing multiple drawings to PDF.

When I plot a drawing using the plot command, I don't have a problem.

When I publish one drawing using the Publish command it is also fine.

It is only when I try to publish multiple files that the problem occurs- the PDFs are produced, but the it is as if the drawing contents (paper space) has been shifted up by 10mm or so, cutting off the top of the drawing, and creating a larger margin at the bottom of the drawing. I use exactly the same page setup as for the single drawing plot.

There seems to be no setting that would change this, and the fact that publishing a single drawing works suggests that there is some kind of bug. At the moment i have to plot every drawing individually (or get my colleague to do it- it works fine on his machine, same page setup file!)

See attached example.
