    Cool Trouble viewing weld symbols

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Hi All


    I have a customers drawing that I have added dim's and weld symbols to (I use Auto Cad Mech 2016), after I save the drawing and get out, my co-worker who uses Autocad Lt 2014 opens the drawing and can see the dim's that I added but not the weld symbols. I have looked at his setting, trying to compare them to a second system that is also running Autocad Lt 2014 who can open the same drawing and see both the dim's and weld symbols. Any suggestions will be greatly appricated.

    Does LT utilize object enablers?
    Drafting is a breeze.

    When opening the drawing on the compter which does not display the weld symbols, is there a pop up about PROXY OBJECTS?
    Are both copies of LT running all of the latest updates from Autodesk?
