When I open an drawing, AutoCAD opens *two* drawings, the one I wanted *plus* a new one (called drawing 1.)
Why does this happen and can it be prevented?
AutoCAD LT 2010
Are you clicking on a drawing file and having AutoCAD Start from the drawing calling for CAD to open?
Or are you Starting AutoCAD and then opening a drawing and having this happen?
The former could be normal behavior.
The latter is a little funky.
I click directly on an existing drawing file (plan.dwg for example) -- NOT opening up AutoCAD prior top selecting a drawing..
When I click on this drawing a *new* drawing is automatically created first called "drawing1.dwg". After this new drawing is created then my target drawing opens next.
Opening up 4 separate drawings will result in 4 new drawings I have to delete.
Thanks for your help!
That is normal behavior.
You need to read up on STARTUP
OPTIONS, Files tab, Template Settings, Drawing Template File Location: Remove the entry here if it points to a file.
I managed to chang the settings to avoid a new drawing from being created, but a separate version of AutoCAD is opening up anyway *without* a drawing (as well as the target drawing I do want opened.)
Is there a way to avoid having AutoCAD open up twice for each time I want to open a single drawing?
