AutoCad :: Saving And Opening A Drawing

Jul 29, 2013

Whenever I go to save a drawing or open a new one from AutoCad, a command box shows up asking me to manually type in the file name and file path of the drawing I would like to open or save. Before I could do it as most programs do (Microsoft word, excel, etc.) where I can browse for the file via folders. Has this happened to any of you before and what do I need to do to get it back to normal?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Opening Drawing In 2013 And Drawing View Changes?

Nov 28, 2012

Recently upgraded to Civil 3D 2013 and drawings opened up fine.  Now today any drawing that opens shows the plan view as last saved but then after loading takes the drawing and shifts it into a 3d view similar to a crossection.  Is there a setting somewhere that has been changed?  I noticed after a windows 7 update was preformed.

AutoCAD Map 3D :: Drawing Disappears After Opening Second Drawing In 3D 2012?

Mar 23, 2013

I have two drawings A and B. I work in A and I need some design elements from B.

When I open the drawing B everything I have in drawing A disappeared. I refer to all elements of design (blocks, lines, polylines, etc.).

After studying the issue have concluded that the design of all elements were automatically isolated. Right click> Isolate> End Object Isolation and everything reappears in drawing A.

I mention that I installed Autocad Map 3D 2012 x64 on Windows 7 x64 and work in Map Classic Workspace using the same coordinate system in both drawings.

AutoCAD .NET :: Opening A Drawing

Jul 18, 2011

I'm reading a .dwg in from a database and writing to a local file.I'm using the following code to open it after I write it to a local file. Application. Document Manager.Open(filepath); What is happening is soon as it gets to that line of code AutoCAD either crashes or it has a StackOverflowException.

I've stepped through and before I go to open the file I have double check it is there. Also after AutoCAD crashes if I go to where I wrote the file to and open it that way I can open it by double clicking it.

Photoshop :: Saving And Opening Psd Files

Aug 5, 2009

I use PS CS4 for photo editing and digital scrapbooking.  For the past few weeks I have had some issues opening layered psd files of digital layouts that I have saved.  They save properly but when I open them there is nothing but a black document with a red stripe going across the top.  Can someone please help?Here are a few screen shots of what I am getting.  In the first one you will see that the thumbnail is an actual image of the document and the second one is a screen shot of that document when I open it.ETA:  This does NOT happen all the time.  I have successfully saved and opened some psd files since having this issue for the first time a few weeks ago.  I just can't seem to pinpoint what has happened prior to the psd file not opening properly.

AutoCAD .NET :: Edit Drawing Without Opening?

Jul 5, 2013

I need to open a bunch of drawings, update a block and then save. I am trying to do it without opening each drawing in AutoCAD. Here is the code snippet I have. I figured before I plug in my block editing code, I would test things out with just adding a line. It seems to be boing through the drawings, and I get no errors, but the line is not being added.                           

Dim mydb AsNewDatabase(False, True)
mydb.ReadDwgFile(Newfname,FileOpenMode.OpenForReadAndWriteNoShare, True, "")
Using Trans AsTransaction = mydb.TransactionManager.StartTransaction()
Dim btr AsBlockTableRecord = Trans.GetObject(mydb.CurrentSpaceId,OpenMode.ForWrite)

AutoCad :: Setting For Opening Drawing?

Jul 23, 2009

Currently in AutoCAD 2008, evertime I browse my folders and dbl click a dwg - AutoCAD opens that drawing in a new window. If I click on three drawings, AutoCAD has three different AutoCAD programs running.

If I'm inside AutoCAD and choose File, Open, etc... then the new drawing opens in the same AutoCAD program. I'd like for that behavior to work if I have AutoCAD already open and I browse my server thru explorer and dbl click a dwg on the server.

Is there a setting that will allow that?

AutoCad :: Opening Drawing Files From CD

Aug 16, 2011

I have an issue with opening my old drawing files (.dwg). I usually make a backup copy of all the drawings I have done and save them according to the project numbers. The drawings I have difficulty opening were done ages ago and backed up on a CD.

When I was trying to open the drawings from the CD, I received error messages saying "cannot find the specified drawing file. Please verify that the file exists". I also noticed that all of those drawing files are of size between 30Mb and 35Mb. So clearly, there is some data in them.

I also tried to do copy and paste from the CD to my local machine but to no avail. It said the file may be corrupted or something. I do not know if this is to do with losing path or what.

Photoshop :: Opening And Saving Files / New Eps Default

Sep 14, 2012

(1) When I go to open files, raw or jpeg, I now need to enter a value for 'enable' on the open dialog.  That never was necessary before.
(2) When I go to save as jpeg, the file type defaults to eps. And even when I change to jpg, I get a dialog about eps options.
The only way I found to get around this was to convert my files to 16 bit.  That certainly shouldn't be necessary.(I'm using Photoshop CS6 on a Mac running Mountain Lion)

Photoshop :: PS CS2 On Vista Opening Or Saving File...

May 30, 2008

I try to open a file from inside Photoshop CS2 on my new Windows Vista laptop, if I try to change directories by clicking on the directory list on the left side of the open window, I get an error: "Adobe Version Cue - The operation could not be completed. There was a problem with the selected file or folder. It might have been moved, renamed, or deleted. - Error Code -6640" I does this while saving too, which means I have to save files, then go back into Explorer and move them manually.

GIMP :: Colours Wrong When Opening And Saving?

Sep 17, 2009

Whenever I open an image in Gimp, it's just a little off colour. Then when I save it as an image file (usually png), it's even more off colour than what's displayed in Gimp. For example, if the image starts out with a grey background of 808080 (RGB Hex Value, 16-bit), in Gimp it's 7F7F7F, and when I save as a png, it's 6E6E6E (honestly, how does that make sense under any circumstances?). I've tried every combination of settings under colour management, to no avail. Once, I managed to get Gimp to display the correct colour, but when I saved it as a gimp file, and re-opened it, it was wrong again.

AutoCAD LT :: Objects Disappearing When Opening The Drawing

Dec 13, 2013

we are having a problem here at our office. this revolves around one file. When I open the file, some objects (text, hatch, lines - all different layers) disappear. This happens before any command is made, and the object that disappear are on layers that are active and not frozen on all viewports. Also, the rest of the objects on the layer are visable.  Other objects on these layers are visable, and the objects that disappeared are not visable on the model space or paper space. On top of that, when someone else opens the file, different objects turn invisable, and they can see the things I cant. The drawing takes about 5+ mins to load, dispite it being not a very large file. I tried purging unused items, reconciling layers, unhiding everything, freezing and unfreezing all layers and restarting autocad. 

Coincidentaly  the x-ref dwg is having a very similar issue.

AutoCad :: All Layers Set To No Plot When Opening A Drawing

Aug 1, 2012

I've recently upgraded to AutoCAD 2012 and CADS RC 2012 and a really annoying thing has starting happening! Every time I open a new drawing or an existing one, all the layers are automatically set to 'no plot' so print previews come up completely blank every time! I then need to manually go through all the layers setting them to plot or no plot as required!

AutoCAD VB :: Opening Drawing And Creating A New Layer

Aug 15, 2011

I am trying to automate opening a document and inserting a new layer in it.  Inserting the layer and opening the document is quite easy, but doing both is proving to be quite difficult.

Here is the Code that I am working with.  The code for creating the layer works fine in an already opened document.  It seems that autocad cannot find the opened file. 

Sub Open_and_new_layer()Application.Documents.Open ("C:UsersPatrickDesktopAutocad program66986691_BL_01.dwg")Dim strLayer As StringstrLayer = "BOM"Dim layCurrent As AcadLayerOn Error Resume NextSet layCurrent = ThisDrawing.Layers(strLayer)If layCurrent Is Nothing ThenSet layCurrent = ThisDrawing.Layers.Add(strLayer)If layCurrent Is Nothing ThenMsgBox "Error creating layer " & strLayer & "."Exit SubEnd IfEnd IfThisDrawing.ActiveLayer = layCurrentEnd Sub

AutoCAD Map 3D :: 2013 Crash Upon Opening A Drawing

Jun 6, 2012

After upgrading/switching my stand alone license from Civil 3D 2011 to Map 3D 2013, my computer is crashing before a complete opening of some larger dwgs (1575 KB).  Sometimes I get an Out of Memory message.Other (much smaller) drawings open fine.The switch from Civil to Map was made because we were not using any of the civil bells and whistles that make it unique. 

Map suits our needs.  We use shp files (data connect) to generate most of our work.I can use another computer in our office that has Map 3D 2011 and am able to open up any of the drawings with no problems.  Because I had no issues with Map 3D 2011, I thought moving up to 2013 would be "easy". 

We have a subscription and every couple of years try to load up the latest and learn to live with it.Now I am wondering if we can all just go to Map 2011 and forget 2013.

AutoCad :: Opening A Drawing Exchange File

I am having problems in opening a drawing exchange file sent to me by a friend who is using TurboCad V1.1 In trying to open the file using AutoCad 2000 I am getting the following error message "Invalid or incompatible DXF input - Drawing discarded".

I thought that the whole point of a dxf file was that it could be universally recognized from one system to another.

AutoCad :: LT 2010 Crashes During Opening Of Drawing?

Jul 23, 2012

We are running LT 2010. I have one drawing that crashes Autocad while the drawing is trying to open. The drawing is about 13 Meg. The crash occurs when it gets to the regen step. The program does not continue and it is necessary to go to the Task Manager. Autocad shows as not responding. Performance shows 50 - 100% CPU usage. The task must be ended. CPU usage drops to < 10%. The recovery utilities say that everything is OK and make no difference. It is doing the same thing on another PC. About 10 Meg of the file is one block. I can open that block separately without a problem.

AutoCad :: How To Change Settings For Opening Another Drawing

AutoCAD .NET :: Stop Opening A Drawing Consistently?

Oct 29, 2013

I would like to run some code BEFORE AutoCAD opens a drawing. It's a simple validation routine.  Ideally speaking the sequence would run as follows...

The user opens a drawing in some way (file dialog, windows explorer, sheet set, etc) I run my validation routine If it passes validation let AutoCAD open it / If it doesn't abort the process.

I can override the OPEN command and substitute my own, but there are a variety of ways to get a dwg open. How to stop or abort opening a drawing consistently? Even if it's not .net?
