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.
I am trying to change the default label styles for AddSegmentLabel under general styles using .NET...
Dim X As Autodesk.Civil.Settings.SettingsCmdAddSegmentLabel = CD.Settings.GetSettings(Of Autodesk.Civil.Settings.SettingsCmdAddSegmentLabel)()
X.Styles.LineLabel.Value = strChildStyleName ... says name does not exist
X.Styles.LineLabelStyleId.Value = oidChildStyle ... "The type of objectId is wrong"
If I manually change it to a child style and then check the values, they are the same as what I'm trying to set them to. If you use a "parent" style then these both work. Am I doing something wrong or this another limitation?

We have walls constructed out of modular panels, represented by basic rectangles. Rectangles are a standard 16" wide. (length not important) Only when a rectangle is not 16" wide, would we need to show it's width with a dimension.
In multiple blocks I am creating, I need a stretchable rectangle, in which there will be a dimension.
However I do not want the dimension to show up when the rectangle is 16" wide. But I DO want the dimension to show when the rectangle is not 16".
So... When the rectangle is 16" wide, no dimension is displayed. When the rectangle is NOT 16" wide, a dimension is displayed.
pic of three rectangles next to aforementioned stretchable rectangle. When the one on the right is 16" wide I don't want to see a dimension.
In the styles my template drawing is set to Standard ANSI, then below are a bunch of styles like Dim and center mark etc.I want to change the precision of my template so that when I bring in a part to the drawing and dimension it. it is at a 3 place decimal.
one would think that you could just export the .stm file into hydraflow, make some changes, and import, and all would be fine. when i export, all of the structures in hydraflow come up as drop curb. how can they come in as what they actually are.. aka, when the part i use is a 2x4 box, it should come into hydraflow as a "grate inlet", or a st-mh will come in as a "manhole".
and then likewise, when the changes are made, and its brought back into autocad, they all come in as a "standard" style. except the outfalls, which show as a "standard" style, but come in with a different block, and get a whole new label (outfal - x)
Ever since I downloaded the latest 13.0.1 update to CS6 two days ago, my custom settings keep resetting to every time I close down and reopen the program. Even my custom brushes keep disappearing and require reloading. This is getting maddening! Why is it happening and what can I do to fix it?
I have a drawing that can be used to manufacturing purpuses or to normal company ipt, iam, etc., and I want to when opening a new drawing configure it if the designer if it chooses yes in the msgbox change the title bock and the standards in the styles.
started the code like this:
Dim i As Stringi = MessageBox.Show("Vai efectuar o desenho de uma ferramenta ou de um elemento seu?", "Parts List", MessageBoxButtons.YesNo, MessageBoxIcon.Question, MessageBoxDefaultButton.Button1)If i = "6" ThenActiveSheet.TitleBlock = "Alualpha_Ferr"End If
but it gives this error
The parameter is incorrect. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070057 (E_INVALIDARG))
1. When in style and Standard editor with default standard selected under Standard I am trying to display mass properties in my view label.Select View Preferences tab. View type Base. Next to Display select Edit View Label.When Format Text box pops up in the selection for text type I have two options.
a. Properties - Model b. View Label Properties
2. Inside an IDW file right click on view and select edit view.When Drawing View box pops up there is the option to access Edit View Label next to View Identifier.When Format Text box pops up in the selection for text type at this point there are seven options.
a. Properties - Model b. Properties - Drawing c. Drawing Properties d. Sheet Properties e. Physical Properties - Model f. View Label Properties g. Sheet Metal Properties
Questions 1. Why are ther only two options in S&S Editor?
2. Can I add more options to S&S Editor?
I would like to add mass to my lablel inside certain templates and have it show when I display a views Base view label. Not ot have to maunually add it each time it is displayed.
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.
In our drawing office we use Inventor in a mining materials handling environment. Our output is mainly structural drawings where we require a bill of materials as part of creating a drawing. Whenever I insert a BOM in the drawing environment I get this table which is labeled in a foreign language (it looks like an Eastern European language) and the format is not as per the standard Autodesk installation setup.
How do I either revert back to the standard setup or do a BOM setup from scratch?
I was working on some isometric drawings for my CAD class and I can't seem to figure out how to get the grid back to the standard 2D grid view that I used to get when opening CAD. I now jusr get this dotted grid every time:
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.
I'm taking over the development of some Autodesk addins that are used to parse a drawing to bring back text from the drawing, namely title block and bill of materials information. I have another process that runs and reads the meta data for the drawing itself that gets run from Vault before checking in the drawing. I need to know if I can combine these two processes such that I can parse the drawing outside of AutoCad. Is this possible?
In older versions of IV I thought that fractional dimensions were automatically changed to decimals in the sketch mode (part modeling) and you could change it to fractional if so desired. In IV2012 they stay fractional, is there a way that I can't find, to make them convert to decimal at the global level or better always show as decimal as standard. I know I can change them at the individual level.
Using 2012. On pre-07 versions I've used, I could change the style of all dimensions in a drawing by selecting all entities (or using window selection) and then selecting the new dimension style from the combo box, regardless of what layers or entities were selected. Any dimension within that selection gets changed to the new style selected. In 2012, if I select any entity that isn't a dimension, no dimensions styles appear in the combo box, and so this method doesn't work.
Is there some new setting preventing this from working?
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.
