for all who have already installed the 10.6.7 update and don't want (or can not) to reinstall OS, I want to suggest to try my workaround for Copy-Paste problem.
Download attached ACADDOC.LSP and place it to "~/Library/Application Support/Autodesk/roaming/AutoCAD 2011/R18.1/enu/Support/" folder. Then you can use standard AutoCAD commands for copy-paste and even shortcut keys (Cmd+C, Cmd+V...).
The only one limitation, that when you copy (or cut) objects AutoCAD asks to pick base point, like in Copybase command.
IT WORKED! I've tried it with my new MBP 17'' with OS 10.6.7 and it work perfectly! Thanks a lot, works every time I use it and hasn't crashed yet neither!
god i wish that i had more patience.. autocad working but a lot of of other programs after restoring to 10.6.3 are getting me headaches here..... going back to 10.6.7 also and use this fix... 16hours for the mac os update is there uppffffff (living in brasil can be something a pain, but not for the women)
It works! thx Maxim! And i dont call that copying with basepoint a limitation, i call that what i have been waiting for for a few months To change ctrl-c to copy with base point. 2 problems fixed at once!
thank you thank you!
In fact this workaround is not pure solution, because I have redefined COPYBASE, COPYCLIP, CUTCLIP and PASTECLIP AutoCAD commands (substituted with custom routines). So, for example, inserting "plain" text to drawing (not inside TEXT or MTEXT commands) from real clipboard with pasteclip doesn't work.
About your problem "To change ctrl-c to copy with base point".
Have you read my post at macacad.com "Edit and Create Shortcuts in AutoCAD for MAC? YES it is possible! Part two (advanced)"? It is about your request too.
For your problem you have to change only one word in AcceleratorRoot.cui file:
1. make sure you not running AutoCAD, open AcceleratorRoot.cui file in text editor
2. go to line 89 and change "ID_Copyclip" to "ID_Copybase"
3. Save file (you already made backup copy of it, isn't it?)
From now you will have CMD+C for COPYBASE (Mac style) and CTRL+C for COPYCLIP.
If you want CTRL+C for COPYBASE and CMD+C for COPYCLIP, then you have to change line 530 in that file.
Oh yes, you can make the above modifications after Copy-Paste fix will be avaliable from Autodesk. Also don't forget to remove my ACADDOC.LSP from Support folder after official fix.
Thanks for all your effort on our behalf. I've installed your file and things are working as you say. Assuming that AutoDesk issues a new release soon with a fix to this problem, should we then remove your file?
