We just upgraded to windows 7 from windows xp 32 bit. I had 8 years of cad drawings and blocks and now that I'm on a windows 7 computer 64 bit I see the outline to all my blocks but all the texts and images are missiing inside. I've tried this on other users windows 7 computers and its all there. I know the data is there I just can't seem to get it to show up on 2013 or 12 3d now that I'm a windows 7 workstation. Could it be cause I don't have admin rights? Any tips or tricks please help this is killing me I'm wasting too much time trying to solve this myself.
Can you provide screenshots or if possible, the DWG file?
I will do both first thing in the morning when I get to work.
However if I send you the file you'll be able to see it for some in its complete form and see what I'm talking about
on your computer. Its just the outlines to all my blocks and drawings that I have and I have none of the text in any of the blocks or drawings just the outer layer of the blocks on my computer. i will take pictures of what I have on my screen. I will send you pictures and dwg file tomorrow.. Thank you so much for trying to help me...
There is a system variable which shows text as an outline box, something of a holdover from ye olde days when hardware performance wasn't great. I can't remember it off the top of my head, maybe somebody else with more time can look it up.
here are the files and images of whats happening, the file is how it's supposed to look, the image is how it looks now.
thanks again if anyone can help me
