when working in your drawing, are you importing any blocks from a local library? you may have a corrupted block.

Thanks for your suggestion. The problem occurs whether or not I import anything or not.

For instance the file I uploaded was fine untill I worked on it (slicing, extruding, solid editing, etc.).

 

Something corrupts and is deleted, but no entities are ever missing from my files.

 

In all the dozens of file recoveries that I have done, It states that items are deleted, but I have never found anything missing.

 

A corrupt reg. app?

After 12 weeks of frustration, I am abandoning Autocad Mechanical 2013.

 

Problem solved.

HI Darnold,

                   My name is Greg Douglas from GMW Associates.

 

I have the same problem with some of my files.

On ACAD 2013 the file error checking looks for empty text boxes and zero length lines.

If found in the drawing file then errors are reported.

 

After the following actions my files do not report errors any more

 

1. Open file, ignore message to restore file. It does not help.

 

2, Purge file ENSURE UNAMED OJECTS SWITCH IS TICKED.

     This ensures zero-lenth line and empty text boxes are removed.

 

3. Save File

 

4. Reopen file, error should be cleared.

 

Regards

 

Greg Douglas

Thank you, Greg for taking the time to post a solution.

Every so often, I use Autocad for little things, but for the most part I have abandoned it for drawing in solids, which I am required to do here. (using Inventor) 

If I have the problem again I will follow those steps, but none of the files I worked with had any lines or text.

 

I will say, that in 25 years of drawing in Autocad, Version 2013 was the most frustrating, irritating, and maddening experience yet. 

 

Again, thank you.

My box is greyed, so i can´t switch it to be ticked.

What can i do to get it ticked
