I'm experiencing a weird bug appeared out of nowhere. Every single time I start AutoCAD 2013 my Properties Pallete's columns reset their size. Please see attached image for an example.
I've tried re-saving workspace to a new one. It won't help. It also doesn't matter if I open application using shortcut or by double-clicking DWG file.
It's very annoying so maybe someone knows how to fix it?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Which flavor of AutoCAD is this, (the 3 tabs indicate it's not vanilla)
Does it also happen when undocked? You may try manually adjusting it in the CUI (select the current workspace in the top left pane, then select "Properties" in the top right pane, then adjust the size/location in the lower right pane... APPPLY)
It's Civil 3D. Same thing happens to Properties in both modes (running as Civil 3D and as AutoCAD). I tried what you've suggested and it didn't work. And there was no option to adjust columns widths of Properties Palette inside CUI. Changing size to a diferent one didn't help... BTW it's no matter if the palette is docked or not.
Log into the machine as a new user (a user that has not logged on to the machine before).
When you launch C3D, a new profile will be created.
Does it work OK now?
If so, this indicates something screwy with *your* profile, and you can try this:
Or if you feel more adventurous.....
Close Civil 3D
Go to this directory: %appdata%\Autodesk\C3D 2013\enu\Support\Profiles\<your profile name>
Find the file "Profile.aws" and rename it to something else like "Profile.aws.bak" (make sure file extensions are visible in Explorer)
Restart Civil 3D
Thanks. R.C. I've done it to both profiles and it's fine now! Maybe you could point me to what information is stored inside profile. So I could double check the settings and delete backup files.

I don't know exactly, but it's just an XML file so you can open it in Notepad or an XML file reader and poke around and possibly figure some of it out.
