I would like to be able to see the preview of my drawing before opening, but for some reason my computer doesn't come up with it, as per attached.
I have Design Review 2013, True View 2012 (tried to install 2013 but it complained about my .NET version), .NET version 4 and extended, Windows 7 Professional SP1 and I know I should be able to see the thumbnails of these drawings because other people can who have the same software as I do.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Unfortunately I can't share a drawing as they are all proprietary. But as I mentioned in my first post, I know these drawings can be previewed in the bottom left hand corner of the window becasue a number of other people at work can see it who only have the same software as I do. All the drawings I view are created by the proffesional draftsmen at work as well.
So I found the solution.
In windows 7 under Organize > Folder and search options > tab View I had 'Awlays show icons, never thumbnails' selcted.
Once I un-ticked that the previewer works great.
I am having the same problem. I'm running AutoCad LT 2012 on Windows 7 Professional 64-bit.
Up until a few weeks ago, Windows Explorer showed the thumbnails just fine, then all of a sudden it would only show the dwg icons. It will still show the thumbnail in the "preview pane", but it stubbornly refuses to show the thumbnails in the main pane where I need it to.
And, yes, I have un-ticked the setting "Always show icons, never thumbnails". Multiple times. No luck.
Please, does anybody have any other ideas? I'm pulling my hair out here. Thanks!
I am having the same problem, mine occored after installing the latest Design Review. I cannot preview them in thumbnail mode or on the sideof Explorer. I'm also using XP pro. Uninstalling Design Review didn't fix it either. UGH
Hope they fix this soon.
