I've been having a problem being able to access the scalelistedit function of Civil 3D.
Each time I try to edit the list my Civil 3D freezes completely. I can Esc out and everything else works perfectly fine however it's become quite the nuisance.
I don't get any errors and it appears to be working on the function but after having left it that way for several minutes with no results I'm drawing a blank. The drawing I'm currently on is very small (1.3MB) and I thought size might have been the culprit but it keeps happening..
Solved! Go to Solution.
Let me help you out with this. You will need to follow the directions to the letter, i.e. don't 'click' on move if I say hit'M' for move.
Start by hitting Alt+Space bar. A menu will pop up. type "M" for move. Then, use your arrow keys left or right until you see the pop up menu for the scalelist. What is happening is your menu is popping up behind you main Autocad frame. You can also try grabbing the windowed frame for autocad (the corners) and make it small enough (don't minimize) that the scalelist shows up. I hoipe this works for you.
i had this same problem and followed the instructions to get the window to pop up... worked great.. but now when i go to add a custom scale it freezes and wont let me add one.. any solution??
You might be suffering from "excess annotation scales" ie. the list has gotten longer than what the listbox in the dialog can support. Try using the command line version of the scale list editor to reset the scale list first.
tried that.. nope... i am unable to 'delete' any of the scales as well.. very strange.. annoying.. and driving me crazy because i use custom scales all day long.. ugh
ok! i just realized that my "add" scale window was coming up and that had to do the same thing to move
the window to my screen!! thank you all so much for your help..
