Anytime I try to add a custom scale either by selecting the "custom scale" option from the paperspace viewport scale menu or by entering the command SCALELISTEDIT manually, the dialog box doesn't appear.
It's not that the box isn't opening because all other buttons and functionality are restricted in AutoCAD until I hit escape to exit out of the command. It's as if it's opening on a separate monitor, except it doesn't appear on my secondary monitor when I plug it in either.
Has anyone run into a similar issue? Is there a command where I can manually add a custom scale or a property that I can change to force the box to be docked?
Woah - that's weird - I've never heard of that one before.
In the meantime, try using the command line version -SCALELISTEDIT (note the hyphen before the command name)
Have same problem on dual monitor system. Thanks to murray-clack for workaround. But stell, i think autodesk have to pay more attention on dual monitors
Ok, here is the solution.
then Alt+Space shortcut to window's main menu - select Move
Use arrow keys to reposition the dialog.
It works on any window that are not displayed for some reason on dual monitor systems.
I've tried this and the Dialogue box appeared - however every time I select add/edit the box freazes and I cannot proceed.
I'm working on Auocard LT 2011, please could someone give me direction?
Has this ever been resolved? i am running Civil 3D 2012 64 bit in Windows 7 with dual monitors and having the same problem. Murray-clack's workaround worked for me, but what a headache to have to use the workaround.
This happends if a dialog bounds location gets a negative value in the registery/profile. You can edit the following registry by deleting them or change the negiteve value to 450 or something safe. I deleted these keys from our custom ARG file so the error would not get pushed to new users. Autocad will recreate the values the first time the dialog gets used.
+1 with MarkNelson
Did you change your graphic card ? or its Resolution ?
Did you switch between One Screen and Two Screens ?
The only safe solution can be to reset XY position of the dialog box concerned !
So follow the magic wand called MarkNelson !
So here is another possibility. The SCALELISTEDIT Display may be off screen. Try this. Enter SCALELISTEDIT, Enter.
Then at the same time push both the ALT key and the SPACE BAR, then release, push "M", release. Now with your arrow keys try moving up, down, left, or right until you see the Display. Just a thought. Read Y'all Later -KLYPH
