I've seen a couple posts similar to this but not exactly this and not in 2013. Please refer to the attached screen shot.
Q1. What does the red "X" next to Arc, MText and Text mean?
Q2. I have the Arc properties "Layer" "Total angle" and "Arc length" checked but as you can see in the insert, these are not displayed and "Color" "Layer" and "Linetype" are displayed. Why?
Solved! Go to Solution.
The Dialog that you are seeing is information about the current entity you are hovering over.
The List that you are checking in the CUI is for the Quick Properties Dialog.
Quick Properties will need to be on. QPMODE set to 1 will show the dialog.
You will need to click on the Arc to Highlite it to see the information that you want.
Thanks for the quick response. Please look again at the attachment in the OP. Unless i am missing something, the list is NOT for quick properties but, as you should see, for rollover tips. Notice that it is highlighted in the left column.
What i want is for the rollover tip to display "Total angle" and "Arc length" and NOT display "Color" or "Linetype."
And BTW, do you know what the red Xs are?
Yep, did not notice that light shading of the Rollover Tips.
Deselect the Arc so nothing is highlighted.
Go back to the CUI and choose Rollover tips from the Main CUI and not your CUSTOM Cui.
Now rollover the Arc. Works as expected here.
I suspect the red X means that these dialogs cannot be changed from this CUSTOM CUI.
Something new. Thanks.
It works here for me.
I also see that you can define rollover tips for the same entity in more than one cuix file.
Maybe the specs you are setting up are being overridden by rollover tips defined in another loaded menu.
Not sure about the x
You have pointed me to what appears to be the problem when you said "Maybe the specs you are setting up are being overridden by rollover tips defined in another loaded menu." As you can see in the attached screen shot, "custom13" is the main customization file as George suggests, but the ACAD.cuix is a partial customization file INSIDE the main customization file and that has its own rollover tip settings for certain objects which, as you suggest, are overwritting the settings in the main. (I hope that makes sense.)
I don't understand why a partial menu would override the main menu that holds it, but that seems to be what is happening. So i removed "Arc" from the ACAD.cuix rollover section and guess what? The red X went away and my arc rollover tip now looks as i intended.
Thanks for all the help from this ng. You guys are the best.
