AutoCAD Architecture :: Properties Palette In 2014 Shows Only Current Settings Of General Properties

Aug 13, 2013

It's not just the layer that isn't being displayed in the Properties Palette.    My 2014 Properties Palette isn't contextual--displays only the general info--none of the object specific information.

AutoCAD Architecture :: Properties Palette Shows Any Selected Object On Current Layer

Aug 13, 2013

Just starting to use 2014, and so far not so good.  I tend to keep the Properties Palette open and docked.  In 2014, if my current layer is 0, any object I select in a drawing shows as Layer 0 in the Design tab of the Properties palette.  If I change to a different layer, any object selected shows that layer in the Properties palette.    If I start a new drawing, enter WALLADD and draw a wall segment, the A-WALL layer now correctly appears in the Layer Manager, but when I select the wall, the Layer in Properties is the current layer, not the A-WALL layer it should have gone on.  Also, Quick Properties is on, but doesn't pop up anywhere.

AutoCAD Architecture :: Properties Palette Not Wide Enough / Can't Read Actual Properties

Feb 13, 2013

Somehow the Properties Palette has gotten less wide- such that I can't read teh actual properties.  Previously I was able to make it wider just by hovering over it, clicking on an arrow and dragging it wider.  Not now.

AutoCAD Architecture :: Properties For AEC Objects Not Displaying In Properties Palette?

Jan 16, 2012

A user showed me today that she cannot see any properties for a wall, door, or other AEC object in the Properties palette.

Some options like height, width, etc. are shown, but not layer, style, etc. from the General portion of the Basic tab.

Is this going to be a reinstall scenario or is there a fix for this?

AutoCAD LT :: 2014 - Properties Box Does Not Display Properties Of Selected Object

Jun 6, 2013

I recently upgraded from LT2013 to LT2014. I never had any issues with 2013, but now seem to be battling with 2014. My OS is Windows 7 Home edition.

When selecting an object and then clicking the properties menu, the properties of the selected object are not displayed, but instead the properties of the selected layer are shown.

In the attached screenshot:

1) My active layer is "AM_VIEWS".

2) The layer of the object that is selected is "MEDIUM".

3) The properties dialog box shows the properties of my active layer and not the selected object.

I am therefore unable to override any settings of the selected object and manually change settings e.g. Linetype, Linetype scale etc.

I recently had to reinstall my AutoCAD LT 2008 and now when I open the properties palette to make adjustments to dimensions and fine tune, many peramiters that used to be visible are no longer there and accessible.  I used to be able to adjust the dimscale as needed in the properties window, but can't now.  How do I get it back?

AutoCAD 2013 :: Properties Palette Won't Remember Columns Settings

AutoCAD Architecture :: Properties Palette Not Available When Roll Over It

Jun 29, 2011

AutoCAD Architecture 2009 - Something new started today!!! Working in either design or construction workspace the Properties tool bar will not operate.  When I select an object and roll over to the Properties Pallette it simply starts to blink and does not open.  Also, the Quick Properties panel will not open.  Background, the new file I am working on was last saved on my laptop and transfered via a thumb drive.  I have done this often with out a problem.  However, the laptop is a new one with Windows 7 and my desktop has Windows XP.

AutoCAD Architecture :: Cannot Edit Project Properties 2014 On W8

Nov 18, 2013

I am running Architecture 2014 (PrDS-U) on a Windows8 Pro N.

In Architecture I am a frequent user of the Project Navigator.

After moving to W8, I find that I can not edit Project properties, neither from Project Browser nor the Navigator.

The project resides on my local C:VCC and the folder is being shared on my network. It is not write protected. Everyone has full access.

Others who are connected to the share can edit the project, they are running Windows 7. I cannot.

AutoCAD Architecture :: Properties Window / Floating Palette

Nov 7, 2011

I'm having a problem with my properties window or floating palette. When I select an object, such as a "line", my properties palette refreshes itself for about 3 seconds. When I hit esc, or deselect the line, it takes another 3 seconds to refresh itself. You can even see the properties palette start at the top and go blank as it travels downward.  Very slow process, I can not get anything done. IF I close my properties palette, it does not have the delay, but I can not work without it. When I reboot, it works fine for about 5-6 selections, then jams back up.

AutoCAD Architecture :: Properties Palette Docking In 2012?

Apr 20, 2012

I like to have all my palettes docked, however, the Properties Palette won't stay docked after closing and reopening AutoCAD.  Every time I open AutoCAD, the Properties Palette reverts to its undocked status (all other docked palettes stay put).  Is there any way to remedy this?  It's a pain to have to redock it every time I open the program.

AutoCAD Architecture :: Properties Palette No Longer Appears When Double-click

Feb 8, 2013

I can no longer open the Properties Palette when I double-click on something.   Sometimes, I get the Quick Properties Box, instead -- which was already turned off.   I've triple checked that the QP is off, made sure no tool tips or the like are on, and I've rebooted the computer, but I can't get rid of the thing.

The main Properties Palette still opens up when I use CTRL-1, if I type "properties" at the command prompt, and if I right-click and select "Properties" from the short-cut menu.   Sounds great -- except when I double-click something out of habit and can't jump into the palette and keep going.   Instead I have to clear out of whatever pops up on my screen and open the PP 'manually'.

I've gone in to the CUI and dragged "Properties" in to the double-click function, but...nada.

AutoCAD Architecture :: Where To Change Settings For Layer Properties For AEC Objects

Feb 15, 2011

Walls are being created on layer A-Wall, in color Cyan, Lineweight .020, etc.  I'd like to edit those layer properties.  There must be a matrix somewhere that shows a list of all of the Architectural Objects, the layer that each object will be created on, and the properties of those layers.  Where in ACA2008 have they hidden this top-secret matrix?  I've accessed Layer Key Styles via about 6 different routes, and nowhere do I find a list of Objects.  I see that I could define an override for every component of a Wall object in the Style Manager / Display Properties, but it sure would be easier to just change the layer color once, wherever that's defined.  There is only one Layer Key Style accessible through Style Manager, and layer A-Wall doesn't appear in that manager- layers A-Wall-Abov, A-Wall-Blow, etc appear, but not A-Wall.  Neither does layer A-Glaz, which is where Window objects are placed.

How does a Wall object know to place itself on layer A-Wall, and where are the properties of layer A-Wall defined?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Manage Keynotes And General Notes As Custom Properties In SSM

Sep 6, 2012

Has used ssmpropeditor with civil3d 2012.  I see that it's approved for 2013 on the autodesk exchange sever, but no mention of how it works with 2012.  We are looking at using this to make SSM more user friendly to manage our keynotes and general notes as custom properties in the SSM.  We already use SSM to plot large jobs, populate title blocks and when notes reference other sheets.

AutoCAD .NET :: Finding Sheet Set Properties For Current Drawing?

Apr 2, 2013

I am writing a program acts on the current drawing by using data in the SSM.  If the current drawing is found to be a member of a sheet set (using sysvar SSFOUND) it cycles through all the sheet in the sheet set looking for a sheet entry that matches.  Sometimes a match is not found because the layout name in the SSM does not match the layout  name in the current tab (sysvar CTAB).  Is there a more directly way...and one that works?  I just need a reliable way to get the AcSmSheet object the correlates to the current drawing.

AutoCAD Map 3D :: Text Properties In Palette

Sep 10, 2013

I'm working in AutoCAD Map 3D 2014, just upgraded in fact.  I'm working with older drawings that had their text added by a trained chimp in simple text (Command: TEXT as near as I can figure).  In updating these specification drawings, I'm making fonts the same size, updating material lists, correcting typos and just generally wiping off the banana chunks and drool.

Unfortunately, the properties palette no longer populates with all the text info like it did back in my 2010 version.  In fact, the displayed values won't actually change when I select ANYTHING.  Except it does go blank if I select something and then hit Ctrl 1 to get the palette.

I've hunted through Customize Palettes and Options under the Tools Menu (Map Classic workspace customized).

AutoCAD .NET :: Responding To The Properties Palette

Nov 7, 2011

I am writing in the process of writing a AutoCAD/Civil3D plug-in (in VB.Net) product that needs current detects all of the updates (modified, erased , Unmodified, etc) on my own Entities and then only act on these once. So to this end I am maintaining a list of the affect entities and then processing the 'queue' on Document.CommandEnded.

This worked perfectly for me until I realized that the Properties Palette (and probably others) do not actually perform a command so the command end event is never caught. Obviously the queue will be processed on the next command but it looks sloppy that my data is not updated straight away.

I have seen various blog posts and a similar post on here that suggest using DocumentManager.DocumentLockModeWillChange or Editor.EnteringQuiescentState as the event to detect the end of the edit. However I am finding that no matter which of there I use I am unable to apply my Document Lock and this leads to Access Violations no matter what checks I do passed on the EventArgs.

I believe I have all the right Document locks in place, all in Using Statements so they should be disposed of correctly.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Properties Palette Tabs?

Apr 1, 2012

Question of curiosity.  The Properties Palette in C3D 2012 has four tabs:  Design, Display, Extended Data, and Object Class.  The Design tab obviously has a lot of valuable information and allows you to edit and manipulate entities within the program.  But do the other tabs really have much value? 

OK, it seems that there may be times when the Extended Data tab is of use as you can associate hyperlinks, notes, and documents with an drawing object; so I can buy into that.  Are there folks finding those features to be useful?  

Now I don't know about the Display and Object Class tabs.  Whenever I select an item, and happen to check these tabs out, there just doesn't seem to be any useful information.  Perhaps I am not selecting the right types of objects.  If they are not listing any valuable information, why are they so prominent instead of being buried deep somewhere.  Any insight into the usefulness of the two tabs?,

AutoCAD .NET :: Update Layer Properties Manager Palette

Oct 17, 2011

I've created a VB.NET routine to update blocks, layers and layer filters from a source drawing.

After updating filters and when the command is finished (dialog closed), the Layer Properties Manager palette MAY not update to show the new set of filters although visually you can see that it does appear to refresh itself.

Whether it updates seems to depend on which filter is active and which filters are added.For example, I have properties filters A, B, C, D and E, and B and E have subfilters B1-B8 and E1-E9.

If Filter E3 is removed as a test and the parent filter E is active, when the command is done, E3 should appear back in the list, but it does not show until the palette is closed and reopened. If filter B is active, then the list will refresh and E3 will show immediatlely after the command exits.

I have added a dialog to my routine to inform the user they may have to close the palette and reopen to get the proper display.

I have tried Editor.UpdateScreen() but that does not work.

AutoCAD 2010 :: Slow Picking And Properties Palette?

Aug 4, 2010

What setting would cause a huge, well about 5-second, delay when any entity is selected without a command active and only with the Properties Palette on-screen but autohidden? If command is given first, verb-noun, no hesitation after selecting at Select Objects: prompt. But, selecting any entity first, noun-verb, causes the 5-second delay before the mouse is again active. Very annoying. Closing the Properties Palette completely seems to cure the delay problem, but at a different cost in editing time.  The workstation is running WinXP Pro with 4 gigs of ram.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Layer Properties Manager Palette Won't Appear

Jun 4, 2013

One of my CAD techs is having an issue with the Layer Properties Manager Palette.  When she opened AutoCAD, the palette was gone.  When she tried to bring it up with "LAYERPALETTE", she gets the "unknown command" message.  When she tried to bring it up using "LA" or "LAYER" or the button on the ribbon, she gets a bunch of options in the command line.

How can we get the Layer Properties Manager Palette back?
