How can I set the default save as to 2004?
i have read and tried the various suggestions from previous posts and seem to be unable to get it to change -
Solved! Go to Solution.
1. Quit AutoCAD.
2. Open Terminal.app
3. To set default format for save to AutoCAD 2004 format - copy this string an paste it to Terminal command prompt:
defaults write "com.autodesk.AutoCAD LT.R19.0.ACADLT-B033.409" "HKEY_CURRENT_USER.SOFTWARE.AUTODESK.AUTOCAD LT.R19·0.PROFILES.<<UNNAMED PROFILE>>.GENERAL.DEFAULTFORMATFORSAVE" -int 24
4. To revert back:
defaults write "com.autodesk.AutoCAD LT.R19.0.ACADLT-B033.409" "HKEY_CURRENT_USER.SOFTWARE.AUTODESK.AUTOCAD LT.R19·0.PROFILES.<<UNNAMED PROFILE>>.GENERAL.DEFAULTFORMATFORSAVE" -int 60
what would the code be for regular autocad 2013? not LT? i've been searching everywhere for the answer and cannot find it. and what is the code for default file format in 2002?
Not a problem. Here are the codes:
1 - AutoCAD R12 DXF
12 - AutoCAD 2000 DWG
13 - AutoCAD 2000 DXF
24 - AutoCAD 2004 DWG
25 - AutoCAD 2004 DXF
36 - AutoCAD 2007 DWG
37 - AutoCAD 2007 DXF
48 - AutoCAD 2010 DWG
49 - AutoCAD 2010 DXF
50 - AutoCAD 2010 DWT
60 - AutoCAD 2013 DWG
61 - AutoCAD 2013 DXF
62 - AutoCAD 2013 DWT
For AutoCAD 2002 use "12" (AutoCAD 2000 DWG)
but what about the code to enter in terminal? because it is different for the full version of autocad 2013 than lte? and the "set av" "DefaultFormatForSave" does not work i'm afraid.
For full version of AutoCAD you don't need to use Terminal, look here:
I do have the full version. but the command has changed.
setev is now setvar, which i do, but when i enter "DefaultFormatForSave""24" after it, it says it does not recognize the command in my command line.
