Problem with Autocad 2013 page setup

Recommended Posts

atrickofthemind

Hi all, I am having issues with what I believe could be a corrupted page setup file. I have gone to the page setup manager to try and delete and re-create, but ANY interaction with the page setup in question causes CAD to immediately lock up and crash (even a right click, somehow). Does anyone know the folder location of these files so that i can go in and manually get rid of one? Thanks

 

Edit: I am using a windows 7 machine.

Have you tried running the program as administrator?

is it just this file?

 

Have you tried running an audit?

I'm not sure there is a folder. They are stored in the drawing file.

Do you have all of the service packs hotfixes, and updates for AutoCAD 2013 installed?

Are you saying that you can get to this screen, but if you select the page setup and click Modify, that is when it crashes?

This lisp is supposed to delete those for you. Page setups are kept in the drawing.

 

;;; save this file to a folder on your C:\ drive, name it PAGESETUP.LSP or any name you want
;;; use the AppLoad command, navigate to this file so it will load each time
;;; type DELETEALLPS to delete all page setups in the drawing or set up a button
;;; type PAGESETUP_IMPORT to import all page setups in the drawing or set up a button

(defun c:DELETEALLPS ()

;;import page setups - not sure of the original source for this code below
(defun C:PAGESETUP_IMPORT (/ exprt)
(setq exprt (getvar "EXPERT"))
(setvar "EXPERT" 2)

;;;CUSTOMIZE THE LINE BELOW THIS ONE FOR YOUR PATH AND DRAWING OR TEMPLATE WITH YOUR PAGESETUPS, see below
(command "._-PSETUPIN" "C:\\YOURPAGESETUPS.dwg" "*")  ;change the name and path to your dwt file, etc

;your pagesetup path will resemble the one below, type that in the line above for YOURPAGESETUPS.DWG
