I am new to AutoCAD and AutoCAD Electrical and am doing a course to learn them (I am using the 2013 version on both). In AutoCAD Electrical I have noticed that for some reason I am not able to create a new drawing from the project manager unless i have a drawing opened already. Am I crazy or was it intended this way? If it was intended this way, would somebody mind telling me why?
Solved! Go to Solution.
It was intended this way !
Needs the command line for some things.
1 drawing open in the active project
to use the AcadE project command's.
Don't use CTRL C - CTRL V unless you know what your doing.
Never edit a attribute manualy !
In Acad double-click on an attribute to edit.
But in AcadE you right-clck on a AcadE symbol to enter the edit mode. All you do here will be written to the project database. And with a re-wire or re-tag this data is used to update things. So all you entered manualy will be lost !
And with CTRL C+V you normaly copy a block or something else in the same or anoter drawing, but with AcadE this will get you errors unless you use commands like "insert wblocked circuit" that are specialy made for it. They do the right thing, so AcadE updates the attributes and puts it in the right layer and more lke this.
