So I have this little issue that's bothered me now for a couple of weeks or so. I have a design drawing with several alignments and profiles, and have created a corridor with a surface and all, and now have to create some plan-profiles. So I created the view-frames, then the sheets and all looks good. Now back in my design I create some new profiles by layout in existing profile views and want those new profiles to show up in the plan-profiles I created. I save the drawing then goto my project in toolspace and right-click then select "Create Data Shortcuts" and it tells me that the drawing must be saved. So I save it then repeat, and get the same thing. So I save the drawing then close cad. It ask me to save even though I don't do anything (i.e. run a command or zoom or pan). I save, get out, then restart. Open the drawing and the first thing I do is try to create the data shortcuts and it tells me to save the drawing first. I save then retry and it says the same thing. ISAVEPERCENT is set to 0 for a full save. I do have some apps loaded and running, but that will only affect when I first start the drawing and not later after doing work then saving. I also have the latest service patch installed. Any ideas?

Do you know if the "Save" command has been redefined? We had that problem because we were doing some layer manipulating during the save command.
We had to issue ".save" instead when working with data shortcuts. See if that works.
Does not appear to have been re-written. Whether I hit the save button, run the save command, or save-as, or qsave it save the drawing. I've also gotten out of the drawing and saved it as I get out, then re-open the drawing without getting out of C3D and it still does it. Not sure if it's a bug or what. Eventually after saving and getting out 3 or 4 times it finally let me save the data shortcuts. But I still don't know why it went thru all of this.
Have you tried what Bruce suggested? Be sure to include the leading period.
**Edit** I think you may want to use ".qsave".
Just tried it and it still asked me to save the drawing after the fact. And this is also on a different drawing (project) as well. Also did a qsave and it still asked me to save the drawing.
I'm curious - are the files stored on a network or locally? If they're networked, put them on the local drive and see if you still have the same problem. It sounds like a system problem with file permissions - are you running the program as an admin?
The project is on the network, and all of our projects are networked. They have been networked for awhile now and I've not had this problem before. As far as admin rights, I'm pretty sure I have them. When I get the chance I will try and copy over the project to my local drive and see if that fixes the problem.

Nothing unusual there. Since this isn't something that happens all the time with other data, could you log a case with us and upload the data? I'll be more than happy to take a look at it and see if I can tell what's going on.
