Anyone see this? Two or more files open in a session. Save the cuurent file and one of the other opened files becomes the current file. If I use the CTL+TAB buttons to move between the files the file I choose to be cuurent gets sent to the back and another file becomes current.
I had this issue in 2012 out of the box but it seems to occur much more frequently with the latest service pack installed.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Have you seen a change in this with the latest SP?
Have you made any attempt to log the defect?
It seems like it is occurring more recently, yes. (i.e. since installing sp2.1).
No, I've not logged it. This was a minor annoyance compared to the other issues I was reporting.
This usually happens to me when I have multiple 3 or more drawing open in 1 session. After a few hours saving a drawing can swap me to a different drawing. All i can say is contol tab is your friend.
I used to have this issue and I read about closing my Layers dialog box. Worked for me!
All, I have also has this issue since R2013 RC. It seems to happen when an open drawing Auto Saves, the application will switch to the saving document.
It does seem to be more occurant when one or more open files have Drefs within although the drawing it switches to does not nessesarily contain them as I have seen this with blank drawings in the background.
I don't use the New layer dialogue I use the old one so I suggest that it is not that causing it.
Closing the layer man, toolspace, xref man & props dialog seems to fix a lot of issues. I really wish they would fix the dialogs that continue to introduce these issues.
Just want to clarify Craig's post. It appears (so far) that if you CTL+Tab to switch files a new dwg will not be made current if you continue to hold the CTL key during the process.
