DELETE NAVIGATION CUBE FROM DRAWINGS

WORKING WITH AUTOCAD 2011 WHICH WHEN OPENED COMES UP WITH THE 3D NAVI CUBE IN THE TOP RIGHT HAND CORNER I HAVE FIGURED OUT HOW TO MAKE IT SMALLER AND TO ACTUALLY TURN IT OFF (NAVVCUBE : OFF) AND IF YOU SAVE IT, THE NAVI CUBE WONT SHOW UP IN THE THAT SPACIFIC DRAWING BUT IT WILL SHOW UP WHEN OPENING A NEW OR DIFFERENT DRAWING THAT DOESNT HAVE THAT SETTING SAVED INSIDE OF IT. I HAVE TRIED TO TURN IT OFF AND THEN "SAVE AS" IN MY WORKSPACE TAB. IT WONT STAY AS MY STANDARD SETTINGS. VERY FRUSTRATING BECAUSE I DONT USE IT ALL WITH THE WORK I DO AND IT GETS IN THE WAY CONSTANTLY.

 

ANY SUGGESTIONS?

 

THANKS,

 

MIKE

Have you tried turning it off in the template?

If by some odd chance my nattering was useful -- that's great, glad to help. But if it actually solved your issue, then please mark my solution as accepted :smileyhappy:

HOW DO I DO THAT?

 

I HAVE TURNED IT OFF IN MY SPECIFIC DRAWING BUT IM NOT SURE HOW TO TURN IT OFF IN TEMPLATE. 

 

AND EVEN MORE SO HOW DO I KEEP IT OFF IF I AM GOING BACK TO AN EXSISTING DRAWING THAT IT WASNT SAVED IN THAT TEMPLATE. 

 

AND IF THATS ALL IT IS EXPLAIN WHAT YOU MEAN OR STEPS TO GET TO THAT.. DONT MEAN TO SOUND DUMB JUST NOT FOLLOWING COMPLETLY

Find the variable and turn it off thru the setvar command.  Sorry but I can't remember the variable name at the moment.

Welcome to the forums.  FYI - ALL CAPS IS PREFERRED IN DRAWINGS... but sentence capitalization is used in these forums.  All-caps is usually interpreted as yelling, or at least heavy emphasis.

 

If in doubt on formatting, try to emulate the other posters.  And again, welcome aboard.

NAVVCUBEDISPLAY set it to zero

It's a vaviable that saved in drawing, if you want it off permanently for new or existing drawings, make Acaddoc.lsp and turn it off.

This is what I do, Cut and paste following text into a file name Acad.lsp.  Save it in your support directory and then run the options command, select the System tab and check the box to Load acad.lisp with every drawing.

 

;;; AutoCAD Short-cut keys for Kewaunee
(setvar "NAVVCUBEDISPLAY" 0)
(princ)
;;; End of ACAD.LSP
