I have a problem when i migrate my Acad2005 MNU file to Acad2009 CUI.

- hard to explain the problem -

In the MNU file I use the iconA0.bmp ... to iconA4.bmp as icons for paper-setup scripts.

When migratet til CUI the script is correct and are working, the icon name are correct and the path point at the correct folder - But in AutoCAD only the iconA3 is shown for all icons.

When I edit the CUI file and change one of the wrong icons to something new - ALL the wrong icons change to the new icon.


what do I wrong

I had the same (or similar) problem when migrating to 2006 (original version to use the CUI interface).

The MNU/MNS text files required different formatting of path names than the CUI editor. Those formats were not automatically adjusted by the editor during conversion to CUI.

After F-ing around for days trying to correct the path statements, I finally just removed the paths from the image lines in each command, placed all custom Icon files in one place and called that location in the Support Paths in OPTIONS>Files.

Haven't had a problem since.
