If I accidently turned it off and can not find it in the Hiddeen Messages Settings dialog, is there a variable or registry key or other trick to turn it on again? Hav searched everywhere but can not find a solution..
Would be interested in a variable for the "missing shx files" dialog as well.
Kind regards Patrik
No, the problem is the old bug with anExcessive amount of Annotation scales when using ACAD 2008 without SP1.
When opening a drawing with Excessive scale lists in a newer version you are normally prompted if you want ACAD to reset the scalelist. A client clicked "Always perform this option" and chose NO by mistake. The result is that the dialog is not showing anymore which is usually resetted in the Options-Systems-Hidden Messages Settings dialog.
However the Ecsessive scale list option doesnt come up in the list, which is why I wondered if there is a setting somewhere to get the dialog back?
Hope this clarified my question a bit..
(Im aware of how to manually doing this, or Scale list utillity, but the client want this to be automatically corrected..)
You need to run this on your files:
And install the Service Packs:
Please mark any response as "Accept as Solution" if it answers your question.
My client has updated servicepacks and as I wrote Scale list Utillity is not an option because the client dont want to do this manually everytime new files are sent with 100s of scalelists. (The problem is already in the files, created by ACAD 2008 users long time ago..) and they keep coming...
So what we need is to turn on this dialog again, check always perform this action... and choose YES..
Any moore ideas?
No, the problem is the old bug with anExcessive amount of Annotation scales when using ACAD 2008 without (emphasis added) SP1.
Install the Service Pack
Correct all the drawings one time with the Utility.
Cure the sickness and stop trying to manage the symptom.
IMHO the question appears to be:
So what we need is to turn on this dialog again, check always perform this action... and choose YES.
I don't think he wants to " ... cure the sicknes ... " I think he wants to turn on the warning pop-up again.
Thanks everyone for trying o help, but you are not reading my post.
I know where the hidden Messages settings are, problem is that the Scalelist option doesnt turn up there..
Curing the files wont help, it will only be a temporary solution, since there will be moore and moore corrupt files coming in from different sources/projects..(this is a common problem here..) I understand that the client doesnt want to correct the files manually when there is an automatic solution in ACAD. If it was full ACAD I would just write a simple lisp..
All I need is to turn on the dialog in some other way than using HMS since it for some reaon doesnt turn up in the list..
Surely these settings (as well as the missing shx files f e..) must be saved somwhere?
Kind regards Patrik
Autodesk recommended uninstall and reinstall procedures:
These messages should be the the HMS section, if not, you might have to go exploring in the Windows Registry.
