AutoCad 3D :: Realistic Visual Style Has Changed And Can't Get It Back

May 15, 2013

i've been plaing with my CUI and found there were a lot more visual styles than i thought so added a few to the dashboard to try out. trouble is, a few have similar names and the same icon and now my realistic that i liked is not available.

now it's kinda semi-transparent.... before it was totally opaque. the same with my 'conceptual'...i can see far too much geometry.

btw i don't have a personal CUI or whatever the procedure is....i just modify the main one when inclined.

i've made a toolabr with ALL the listed visual styles on it and gone through them all but none of them gets it back to the opaque version.

^^^ this is in model space only. viewing from paper space it's the same as it always was.

AutoCAD Inventor :: 2012 Fusion Error - Realistic Visual Style

Apr 26, 2011

I get the following error when I try to launch Fusion from within Inventor (or on it's own):

The application is unavailable. There was an error while initializing the graphics subsystem.  This is likely due to one or more of the following:  your graphics driver is not configured for "True Color", there was a problem installing the application, the application installation was damaged, or some other problem with the graphics hardware and drivers or the configuration of the application.  More detailed information may be included below.

Also, when I try to switch to Realistic Visual Style, it will not allow me to. When I go into Application Options, Hardware, and try to set it for Quality it always goes back to Compatibility.

AutoCad :: Settings Changed And Cannot Go Back To Default

Mar 20, 2012

I have been using autocad for many years but have never experienced this situation before. I have received a simple Electrical layout file from a consultant, after opening this file my settings in AutoCAD changed, for examples the snap angle to the cursor changed to 337.18 degree, the selection box (pick box) went to maximum and a few other settings also changed. I had to manually go back to the options and change some of the settings back to what I normally have which is very much similar to default settings. But I could not change everything back to normal. I had AutoCAD 2010 and later installed 2012 to see if it would fix the problems. What surprised me is that when install fresh AutoCAD 2012, the default settings is now changed to the settings that has changed in my previous AutoCAD.I would like to change the settings back to normal.

AutoCAD LT :: Changed To Layout Tab For A Moment And Then Back To Model

Sep 19, 2012

I ran into a problem with my dimensions. Everything worked just fine until suddenly, in model tab, every new dimension i wanted to draw, looked like this (see .jpg attatchment). I didnt modify anything. Just changed to layout tab for a moment and then back to model. When i changed the text height into 10x bigger just to see the difference, the white dimension line just got wider and thats it.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Object Viewer - Realistic Style - Loss Of Quality

May 2, 2012

For some reason, when I view my corridor in Realistic mode in object viewer, all the rendering has changed colours and quality of the textures etc.

It used to display just fine and I am wondering what has caused this? Is it a Driver issue?

I have attached an image of what it looks like now. As you can see the quality is really poor and the colours are wrong.

AutoCAD Visual LISP / AutoLISP :: Changing Text Style Used By Table Style

I am looking for a way to change the text style used by a table style with Visual LISP.  So far I have been able to get the IAcadTableStyle object from the acad_tablestyle dictionary, but there is no property for text style.  Is this even possible?  Code and results are below.

(defun DumpTableStyles ()

(setq TableStyles (vla-item dict "acad_tablestyle"))

AutoCAD LT :: Text Style Changed When Copied From Word

Dec 13, 2013

I'm using Autocad 2013 and have problems when I want to copy some text from Word file. I'm doing that because translating text, which is translated already in Word. I.e., I have a text written in English in Autocad and now I have to select it all, and paste text copied from Word. It changes color (now it's "by Block"), but I change it back to "by Layer; and changes it's style even if in Word it is the same style as in Autocad (it is Arial in Word and in Autocad, but when I paste copied text it is in Times New Roman. 

Is there anything to set up not to change this text, because I have a lot of copy/pasteing to do and would save me a lot of time?

AutoCad 2D :: Dimension Style Changes Without Dimension Style Being Changed?

May 25, 2011

I'm working on a drawing that was converted into cad and it seems like every dimension has its own style. When I copy use the move comand or try to change the dimension the text changes from being above the dimension line to centered and the text gets closer together horizontally. When I compare a copied dimension to the original it has all the same properties including the text pos vert still being above text. The actual dimension style hasn't changed at all but what is showing up on screen is different.

Here a image showing three dimensions with the same properties, the top 2'-10" is what it should look like, the bottom is what it looks like when I copied it and the 1'-2" is when I make a new dimension.

Lightroom :: (Metadata Changed) Keeps Coming Back?

Dec 23, 2012

Two pictures keep coming up in a Smart Collection I created to see which images' metadata need to be saved after adjustments.
I select the two, save and after a few seconds they populate the Smart Collection again. Clicking the "Metadata needs to be updated"-icon of the selected files also doesn't work.
This is what I see:
I tell LR to save the changes:
And think all is OK:

But in no time I'm back with where I started; the same two images in the collection.

Going to the folder in the library and saving doesn't work either.
What can be wrong with these two pictures? The Metadata list shows all correct info, caption and keywords, just the Metadata Status shows there's a conflict. Choosing "Resolve conflict" gives the same results as all I tried before.

AutoCAD Visual LISP / AutoLISP :: Opening Drawings With Default Visual Style Set To 2D Wireframe

Oct 7, 2013

Is there a way to programatically set a visual style before a drawing actually opens?

We have some huge models and people seem to forget to change their visual styles back to 2D wireframe before saving and exiting drawings.  Some models will crash on some workstations when trying to open in a rendered mode.

I found a lisp with a function that looked to set viewport visual styles.  But it does not seem to be supported anymore. --> (vla-put-VisualStyle vport 1)

AutoCAD 2010 :: How To Get The Old Array Style Back

Jun 2, 2011

My company just got all new computers and upgraded out AutoCAD to 2012 from 2009. And every single drafter has complained to me that the new Array is terrible. Basically, it seems to take 10 times as long to set up and array as it used to and now it's linking all of the objects together as a group which is absolutely terrible for what we do especially when we are making 4 or 5 columns or hundreds of objects. I cant find any classic or legacy array commands.

This really needs to be put back in because right now everyone is asking us to put AutoCAD 2009 back on the computers, and the whole reason we bought new PCs is because they couldn't run anything after 2009 without being too slow to be productive.

Xara :: Any Way To Get Old Style Drawing Back Like Xtreme 2

Aug 20, 2013

the new Xara Pro X9, but did happen to notice... Is there any way to get the old style drawing back like Xara Xtreme 2? In Xara Pro X9, it seems you have to drag a line to make one, where in the older versions it was click a point move click another point and it draws a line between them, it was much easier to draw lines and bend them on the fly with the older version, or am I missing a step with the new software.

Photoshop :: Realistic 3D Rendering Converted To Less Realistic Image?

Oct 11, 2013

Was wondering if there are some ways in converting a highly realistic rendering of an object generated in a 3D program into a more illustrative, simplified, alittle less realistic version in Photoshop?

The object has plenty of silver reflections, HDRI environment map reflections, precise shadows and highlights, etc. I just want to make it look more generic  and not as polished I guess.
Are there filters or plugins that will do this in a plug in play method or is it more prodedural and manual?

Oct 25, 2011

I use the hidden visual style when I plot my MEP drawings and I keep having this issues (sometimes it's worse than others) of piping that is on a layer that is off/frozen still blocking a visible line.

It looks like there are wipeout's going over my pipes when in fact it is a pipe not shown.

AutoCAD 2010 :: Turn Off Visual Style?

Jun 19, 2012

Something I did today now causes "2D Frame" to appear near the upper edge of an active Viewport.

I can't draw a line under it, I can't do any command under it.

I hoped that VISUALSTYLESCLOSE would stop it.

It doesn't.

I've unlocked the Viewport.

I've Regenerated.

All the User Interfaces choice are unchecked.
