Re: Map Crashes with DWG

Win7 64bit. Civil 3D 64bit.


I have the same problem after using Data Connect to add a polyline shapefile to my drawing.

I would roll off the Data Connect Diloag an onto the shapefile...HANG...CRASH.


Thanks to Alfred's suggestion I checked ROLLOVERTIPS and SELECTIONPREVIEW.

ROLLOVERTIPS was set to 0 already, SELECTIONPREVIEW was set to 3, I changed it to 0.

Everything works good now.


I checked these two settings in Civil3D 2011, where I have no problems with shapefiles, and ROLLOVERTIPS was set to 0; SELECTIONPREVIEW was set to 3. Those same settings will not work in Civil 3D 2012.

Further testing shows that if I use a regualar AutoCAD template when using the Planning andd Analysis' Data Connect to bring in a shapefile, it will hang and crash.

If I use a civil 3D template, no matter what the SELECTIONPREVIEW is set to, it will not hang and crash.


In Civil 3D 2011 64bit, it works no matter which template I use.
