Illustrator :: Why Take So Long For Open / Save Or Save As Dialog Boxes To Open

Dec 11, 2012

I'm having a problem throught CS6 with the Open, Save, or Save As dialog boxes not opening for a period of time after clicking on the desired functions.  It can take over a minute just to get the Open dialog box up to browse for a file.  Eventually, the dialog boxes open, but during the time that it's trying to open, the program is unresponsive.  It is happening with all of my CS6 programs.  I have unistalled and reinstalled with no fix.  The programs are updated.

Photoshop :: Open / Save Dialog Boxes Not Working Correctly

Sep 24, 2012

Environment: CS6 (PS 13.0.1) Mac OS X 10.7.5. Plenty of hardware. (Generally starting with .CR2 RAW.)Recently (maybe since the 13.0.1 update??), I have been having problems with the open and save as dialog boxes.
First. The open file dialog always defaults to Enable: blank (i.e. no file types enabled). Each time I have to  go to the bottom of the dropdown list and select "All readable documents" before I can open ANY type of file. I've searched in everyway I can think of looking for some method to have OPEN default to "all readable" but can't find anyway to do this. when whipping around at deadline having to stop each time and make this change is irritating. No other program has this difficulty (including Illustrator and InDesign). PS 5.5 did not exhibit this behavior on the same machine.
Second. When I save as and try to select any file format, say going from psd to tiff, the format dropdown list ALWAYS selects the format ABOVE the one I choose. Example: If I select JPEG, PS tries to save as .iff. If I pull the selection down to JPEG2000 it will then save as standard JPEG. Again just an irritant but, tiff (which I need for several other programs) is last on the list thus there is no way I can go one below it to get tiff format selected. It always comes out as png. Also note that the Format selection indicates the correct format - in the case of tiff the dialog box shows TIFF selected, but the program is appending .png. (Continuing the save as (without altering my selection) always results in the incorrect format no matter what the Format dialog says in the save as operation.) Again, no other program I work with (including several Adobe products) exhibits this behavior.
I seriously need to be able to save as tiff.

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.

Illustrator :: Can't Save To PDF - No Dialog Box Open To Set Output File

May 3, 2010

I am just trying to save a PDF from my illustrator file. However, when I go to Save as, and select PDF, no dialog box opens to allow me to set how I want the file outputted. IF I just hit enter, the file does save.. its just like the Dialog box is hidden or not appearing. The reason I need the dialog box is because I need to add bleeds to the PDF and my default save doesn't do that.

Photoshop :: CS6 Windows - Open Save As Dialog Box?

Mar 11, 2013

Why in Photoshop & Illustrator CS6 "Open" and "Save as" dialog box style is from Windows XP?
In AfterEffects, Audition and other is new dialog box style:
Can Adobe add in "Preferences" - option with checkbox for users Windows 7/8 who can use the new windows explorer with extended folder bar? That would be simplified and speeded up a lot of things.

Photoshop :: CS6 And CC Freezes In Open / Save Dialog

Aug 24, 2013

Photoshop is unusable for me. I was running CS6 but it kept freezing when I tried to open a file. I uninstalled and installed CC -- same problem. I checked the preferences to see if there was a setting for an Adobe file dialog and it froze again.
I suspect it has something to do with Mountain Lion 10.8.4 but I don't have this problem in other Adobe apps. Ran Disk Utility, verified permissions, verified disk -- everything checks out. Not sure what to do.

AutoCad :: Open / Save / New Dialog Box Missing?

Aug 12, 2005

In AutoCad 2006, when I want to open a new or existing drawing or template, instead of regular dialog box I receive only a prompter dialog which is present in the command line also, asking me for the name of the drawing that I want to open; it is the case also when I want to save a drawing too. I already checked the "Options" under the "Open and Save" tab and everything looks to be in order. How can I resolve this bothering problem since I am able to perform the above tasks only accessing "Windows explorer"?

3ds Max :: How To Switch To Dialog Windows For Open / Save Dialogs

Feb 1, 2013

How do I switch to Windows' dialog windows for open/save/etc dialogs ?

On Photoshop CS3 we had this option (PS's had more options, but Window's gives a better view).

For the same reason I would like that on AutoCad : AutoCad's dialog is misorganized and carries a bad side menu. I really prefer explorer's .

I know there is an option on AutoCad to use Thumbnails instead of list, for example, but it won't apply to evey folder.

And the side links (see the picture) poins to useless places, and I cannot add my shortcuts, oppose to windows', where I can.

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 2010 :: Unable To Get Dialog Boxes To Open

Mar 9, 2012

I have several lisp routines I have been using since Acad 2002 (with occasional minor revisions) for my title blocks that open up a dialog boxes. None of the lisps I have that should open up a dialog box are working in a fresh 2012 install. 

 The lisps work in 2010 but not in 2012. I searched through the boards and found some info but it hasn't worked (made sure ATTREQ & ATTDIA set to 1).

Here is one the lisps in question:

(defun c:title(/ archl sqftl filel datel salel namel builderl planl subdivision1l subdivision2l plana planb year month day rb1 rb2 rb3 insp1)
(setvar "cmdecho" 1)
(command "attdia" "0")
(command "-osnap" "none")
(setq dcl_id (load_dialog "tools.dcl"))
 I have tried changing the attdia value to 1 in the lisp but the result is the same. The command fails at the same spot:

Command: TITLE attdia Enter new value for ATTDIA <1>: 0
Command: -osnap Enter list of object snap modes: none
Command: nil 

If I use -insert I can get the blocks to run by typing all the information at the command line but I want my dialog boxes back!

AutoCAD 2010 :: 2012 Crashing Whenever File Open / Save Or Save As Selected

Jun 27, 2013

I have the student version of AutoCAD 2012 on an HP laptop with Windows 7 Home Premium OS.  I originally installed AutoCAD in June of 2012.  It worked fine for 9 or 10 months but now whenever I select File/Open, File/Save, or File/Save As, AutoCAD stops responding and the spinning blue donut appears.  AutoCAD never comes back and I have to close it from Task Manager.  I uninstalled AutoCAD and reinstalled it, and the process went smoothly.  However I still have exactly the same problem with the File operations.  I apply Windows updates, but other than that have not made any changes to the software on the laptop.  AutoCAD works fine for everything except the File operations.  I am able to save with CTL/S and am able to open AutoCAD files from File Manager.

Photoshop :: "Use Adobe Dialog" In Open/save Screens...

Oct 21, 2008

I just upgraded to photoshop cs4 from cs2, and I noticed that a feature which I really, really loved is now gone, and that is the Use Adobe Dialog option in the open/save/save as file browser.

I don't see any option for this anymore...was it taken out in CS4 or CS3? Or is there an option to enable it that I'm just missing?

Illustrator :: Save All Open Files At Once?

Dec 4, 2013

I would like to be able to save all open Illustrator files at once.
For example: I am working on a series or collection of designs. Each design has multiple artboards in it that make the files rather large. I am making minute changes to each one that require grunt work. I would like to be able to open 10-20 files at a time, copy and paste the chagnes i need, hit Save All and walk away. So is there a way: a command, a script, something that does this?

AutoCAD 2010 :: PC Freezes After Save / Save As And Open?

Oct 6, 2010

First of all  a little bit about the hardware/software:

- Windows 7 Enterprise 32 bit

- ACAD2011 with 1.1

- Nvidia GeForce 8400 GS (not a supported graphic card from what I know)

- Intel i5-750

Since we got that out of the way let's get to it.

A week ago I was told that a lot of times the PC's freeze when you try to "Save", "Save as" or "Open" a file (we open/save on a network drive). If that happens we have to restart the PC and hope it doesn't happen again, but since this happens quite a lot (over the course of four days about 27 times on 7 PC's) I tried to fix this.

I installed the patch, updated the drivers for the graphic card and reinstalled NET Framework 4. The problem didn't occur as often but it still happened sometimes.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Open Inconsistent Assembly Takes Long Time To Show Unresolved Link Dialog

Oct 20, 2011

We have a data folder on the server mapped as network drive to the clients. The data folder contains all cad data stored from productstream professional.

Due to an over 10 year old environment the data folder contains a huge amount of cad files, library parts, iParts and so on.

Due to historical growth of the environment there are some missing parts (not available on the file system anymore), because they were deleted, are corrupt, and so on. At the root of the data folder there is located the typical cmpinv11.ipj inventor project file.

If you open an assembly either from productstream or via inventor (without productstream) directly from the data folder and the assembly has an unresolved child component because the file isn't there anymore it takes a very very long time until the dialog box for unresolved link comes up (waiting time several minutes 1...10min). Once reached this point one can skip and repair the assembly, of course.

But the question is, how to speed up the time for getting the unresolved link dialog?

The network connection itself is quite OK und the project file itself is also OK. The project file list of every user is pretty small (only cmpinv11.ipj and some standard ipj's).

We think inventor internally scans the whole project-file folders to ensure that the component is really missing but due to the huge environment this takes many minutes and is annoying.

Any bypass for that? Is it possible to apply a temporär setting before opening a potential inconsistent assembly? Or is there a setting like skip unresolved components by default or by a defined timeout?

Because it is Inventor 2010 (Productstream PRO 210) there is no File open Option Auto-Skip unresolved components (like in 2012) but even if it was I guess it wouldn't reduce the time to get the dialog either.

Maya :: Won't Open / Save Files / Open Certain Menu

Jun 7, 2012

I recently installed a student version of Maya 2012 on my home computer so I didn’t have to work from college for a project, but I have run into some issues.

Not sure what is going on with my Maya but it won't open files unless I actually go to it in the browser and double click on the file. Even once I have done that I can only save over it, save as doesn't work. I also can't create or set projects. There are probably more problems but these are the ones I noticed/really need.

This is what appears in my output window:

Could not find maya.utils._guiExceptHook.
Invalid Python Environment: Python is unable to find Maya's Python modules
Python Environment:
