Change "shows as" when opening a file autocad 2002

Recommended Posts

Hi

I've been using Autocad 2002 for a long time and I'd like to find a solution for a problem I couldn't find.

I like to see the full list of drawings in a folder instead of small icons. To do that I right click on the areas where the files are displayed and select "show list" or "show details". The problem is that whenever I chance the folder or select a file to open and go back to open another file Autocad is already showing me again the "small icons". So my selection is not permanent.

I know that in Autocad 2000 if I did that selection of "show as" whatever and selected it, when I went back to open another file, that selection was still standing (ex.: I selected "show details" so it allways showed me "details" until I selected something else).

Can anyone help me with this? Does it happen to anyone else?

Not sure how many people around here are still using 2002, but can you tell us what operating system you're running? This could be a result of running old software on a newer operating system.

Have you tried setting "View" (for the root folder where your drawings reside) to show "Details" in Windows Explorer?

I have also been using AutoCAD 2002 since 2002, and running it in Windows XP, and I have always seen the details in the folder.

 

I have just tried changing to icon view, closed AutoCAD down and opened it, and the list showed icons. I then changed it to details, shut down etc. Opening it up, the list was details. So for me, the folder list stays as it was when shut down.

Hi ReMark

 

Yes, I did, but as soon as I change the folder it goes back to small icons.

Maybe it has something to do with using AutoCAD 2002 under an OS it was not designed to work with?
