    Default Returning to previous editing screen

    Hi everyone,

    Previously, when I want to open a file in the editor, I am presented with the recent files I have been working on straight away. However, after running a lengthy file of about 2500 lines of code, resulting in a crash, I started getting a Visual Lisp console where I have to select the folder and give type of file before I can select the file. Though the program works fine now, each time I want to make a change I have to go through the same lengthy process.
    How can I prevent this happening?.
    Thanking n advance for a solution.
    Aloy.

    There is no doubt some registery entries etc that hold this info but no idea where. Some one more advanced in Regapp may be able to help or else it may be an old fashioned INI file some where.

    had a quick look 1800 INI files none jumped out as relevant.

    Thanks Bigal for the try. Will wait for advice from others too. If not was thinking of formatting and reinstalling AutoCAD.

    Google for "what files have changed" I am pretty sure that you can record what files are opened and closed etc may give some clues about the VLIde writing the file list.

    BIGAL, Fearing virus attacks, I haven't connected my computer to internet. But some virus may have got in via pen drives. Perhaps that may be the reason why it behaves the way it does. Any idea about the files that catches the default settings of the vlisp editor and the way to initialize them at the start of autocad?.

    Are you talking about the recent file list, in the File drop down menu of the VLIDE?

    In the Visual Lisp Editor there is no 'recent files' item in the drop down list of 'File'. How ever previously when you open the editor you go straight to the file you edited last time. I believe at the start of Autocad these default settings are executed. And for some reason this file may have been deleted or corrupted. When this happened for the first time an automatic message asked me to send a report to Autodesk.

    Sure there is. File>Reopen>Flyout




    Regardless of that, the condition of the VLIDE is written to disk when AutoCAD successfully closes. If your routine is crashing AutoCAD, then those settings never get saved.

    Try this. Open your file, then shut down AutoCAD gracefully. Then reopen AutoCAD, and then the VLIDE. Does it reappear automatically now?

    you could also check if your configuration file (VLIDE.DSK) is corrupt :

    Of course , you can use backups etc but keeping your files in a easy to reach folder (short path / add to favorites) is less work. But I agree , it can be annoying to have to manually select your files once in a while ...

    If you invoke the vlide and close all files when you open next time it will be blank is this what you want ?
