SAFeSTeR posted a topic in AutoCAD 2D Drafting, Object Properties & InterfaceHi again, I have a serious problem when hatching in AutoCAD LT 2011, it's making my PC hang but only when I'm using the 'Add: Pick points' command. It's so bad that I can't even call up the task manager to stop the process and I have to switch it off and on again to get it working. I've never encountered this before with earlier versions of AutoCAD, is there a way around this? It's driving me nuts! I'm using AutoCAD LT 2011 on Windows Vista. **EDIT** Since opening my most recent backup file I think I may have found the cause. I had inserted a .jpg image (150 x 150 @ 8KB) that I was using to trace around it and it was these tracings that I tried to hatch. I have since deleted the image and now the hatching causes no problems.
HUMMIKE posted a topic in AutoCAD Bugs, Error Messages & QuirksHi All, New to the community, hoping for a miracle! I've been asked by my employer to open a file pertaining to an old project that has recently been re-opened. I've never worked on the file and, as such, have no idea what might have happened to it. It's a large file (approx. 13mb), drawn in ACAD2007. We now use Autocad Architecture 2010 in the office. I've tried opening it on 3 office computers and on my own at home, all yielding the same results. When the file is opened, it opens slowly but apparently successfully, with the last saved view of the file appearing in Autocad. The progress bar disappears but it continues to read opening 'C://****.dwg' at the bottom of the window. This is as far as it ever goes. I've tried recovering the file and no problems show up, but it still won't completely open. I thought it might have to do with a hidden dialog box, but no luck. I assume its a problem with the file, and in that case, what are our options? Thanks, Mike
