So, all of a sudden my AEPREV and AENEXT commands are not doing what they're supposed to. If I don't make any changes to a drawing, then click my AEPREV or AENEXT button the previous or next drawing does open. However, if I make any changes to a drawing and then try to move back or forward to another drawing, ACE looks like it's thinking about it but does nothing. I've attached two images which show the command line sequence for each activity.
Can someone out there help with this?
Thanks a billion
I did a restart on my computer and that didn't solve the problem. I typed the command on the command line and still no go. I should clarify that when I click either AEPREV or AENEXT, it doesn't do anything, but when I click it again it does go to the next drawing.
I did save the drawing first and that seemed to work. So my theory now is that when I click on AEPREV or AENEXT, it's saving the drawing but not closing and reopening the next one. The problem is that I don't know why that is suddenly happening, and I am not going to keep 'saving' the drawing first before I click one of those commands.
I went to my temp files folder and there didn't seem to be too many files (about 1000 or so). But my initial conclusion seems to be what is happening: on first click the program is saving the drawing but is not opening the prev or next drawing, which is why when I click it again it does. Does anyone have any idea why this is happening all of a sudden? Can I find a lisp routine for the AEPREV/AENEXT and see if something changes?
I'm attaching screenshots of the OPEN_DWG.SCR files, one after I click AEPREV the first time, and one after I click on AEPREV the second time.
Any more help would be greatly appreciated!
Hello again all!
I think this issue has something to do with a lisp routine I made for another issue I was having with AutoCAD. My autosave would periodically turn off, and it was happening for about a year. After some research online, I found that I could run a lisp routine which would "alert" me when my autosave turned off. Apparently when you run a 'publish' command, this causes the autosave to turn off.
I loaded the lisp, ran the "alertme" command, then I went on to do a 'publish' to .pdf and sure enough, a message box came up that said "SAVETIME has been changed". The only problem is that this little box comes up once more after I click 'OK' in that message box; can't figure out why. And, when I checked the autosave box, it was still on.
Anyway, here is the lisp code, and if anyone can help me figure this mess out, I will give you a chocolate chip cookie! Maybe I've done something incorrectly, or left something out, I don't know.
(defun C:ALERTME ()
(setq VTFRXN (vlr-editor-reactor nil '((:VLR-sysVarChanged . VTF))))
(defun VTF (CALL CALLBACK)
(if (= (strcase (car CALLBACK)) (setq str "SAVETIME"))
(alert (strcat str " has been changed "))
