ljhignett posted a topic in AutoCAD Bugs, Error Messages & QuirksHi, I work at my local council as a trainee engineer, we recently recieved a drawing back from a consultant. Being the trainee i have to 'fix' it. The issue is when i try to insert our own blocks ie (title block) it comes up with invalid and wont perform the command. Same thing if i try to copy and paste anything into the drawing. The only way ive found around this issue (if i must get something into the drawing) is to draft it up in another drawing then xref it in. I am guessing there must be a glitch with this file? I am currently using 2009 version of autocad, the drawing was saved in 2011, but it has been saved in compatibility mode for 2009. I have tried a number of things, the block im inserting isn't creating a loop so thats not the issue. I've opened the drawing and saved it back to an earlier file type, that hasn't helped. Tried resetting my pgp file as i thought it might be my acad as our computers at work are below or just at minimum standards and they are constantly crashing. Would anyone be able to help me? or suggest something to try? Cheers
for example when i click on "Door - Imperial" i get the message "Source drawing "C:\Program Files\AutoCAD 2010\Sample\Dynamic Blocks\Architectural - Imperial.dwg" for block "Door - Imperial" not found." what do i need to do to fix this???
Hey all, I have a quick question. I apologize if this has already been asked, but I can not find it myself. I have searched other spots, but its hard if the thread does not specifically deal with your question. My problem is, we have a LISP routine at my company. After you get all of the information from the user, it will insert a block in a specific arrangement in a specific amount. Like, insert blah blah blah 3 times downward 1 inch apart. Everything works fine, but the problem is is that the block HAS to be in the drawing, otherwise the routine fails. If you run it while the block is IN the drawing, it runs fine, no problems. Help?! I have scoured different ways to have it insert the blocks, but no combination seems to work. Here is the line for inserting the block, any ideas? (command "insert" "terminal" (polar #pt1 1.570796327 0.125) "" "" "")
