CTB files in AutoCAD C3d & LT 2013


Recommended Posts

We have our CTB files (as well as our pmp and pc3) files on the network.

With 2008 thru 2012, we have edited our profiles to point to these.

In 2013, one C3D PC sees them fine. A second C3D PC and a LT PC see the lone STB file and no CTB's. It appears the pmp and pc3 files are seen, however.

I did locate a dialog box on LT that seems to be where you might choose between CTB and STB files, but we have it set to CTB and in there, you can select a default CTB file. And in that dialog box, the software sees our folder contents.

Is these some toggle hidden in the interface that we need to flip for this to work?

If a drawing is set for STB then you will only see those. If you have an existing drawing that needs CTB and doesn't let you see them then you will have to look into the CONVERTPSTYLES command. This will be required for each file not showing CTB's.


Open your template and run that command if it is also not showing CTB's.
