Dear Sirs and/or Madams,
I am experiencing a relatively new and maddening AutoCAD problem. If I manipulate any point, or select a point group, or perform ANY action involving points in my drawings, a "Sorting" progress bar appears in the lower left hand corner of the screen, and if it's a drawing with a substantial amount of point data, it can/will lock my computer up. This is driving me bonkers! Can someone explain to me what is going on, and help me find a solution?
Thanks in advance,
attached herein is an image of the progress bar.
I believe that the sorting message refers to the TIN points within a surface. The software needs to sort them as part of the surface build process. Normally the operation is so fast that you never see this message, unless it's a very large surface. I usually see it with Lidar datasets.
This same problem frequently occurs in drawings where my points are not included in a TIN. I am also going bonkers. It seems to be a recent problem for me as well. Is there a point setting that can eliminate the constant sorting?
I have a drawing with absolutely nothing but the points I just imported in it. There's a lot of sorting going on. Seems that getting out of Toolspace stopped the problem, but that's an issue for anyone who does have a surface in their drawing.
Was having the same issue, so from the Prospector Toolspace, right click on POINTS, then select "Refresh", I have not had an issue since.
Hope this helps.
