What would cause the Properties command and the Quick Select command to stop recognizing drawing entities?

If I select some objects and hit properties it tells me no selection. Same in Qselect.

Ther is a variable that will shut off dialog boxes but I don't remembeer it.

"FILEDIA" should be set to 1 for dialogs, hope that helps

FILEDIA only controls the dialog box for finding & opening files.

There is another variable that turns off dialog boxes for other commands, INSERT for example.

I had exactly the same problem.

Go to Control Panel

Select Uninstall a Program

Select AutoCad 2008

It will offer a button to Uninstall/Change.  Click it.

Select Repair or Reinstall

Select Repair my AutoCad 2008 installation and click next.

 

That's it.  You don't even need the install disk.

 

Brilliant
