Using FIBERWORLD=0 in AutoCAD 2012
1.- Block definition with attributes
Try making a block with attributes, use the option "Convert to Block" in the dialog... you end up with the new block plus the old geometry and attribute tag displayed (traslaped) on screen, this is not the normal behavior, the geometry and attribs should be erased. The same happens defining a block without attributes.
2.- Command line
Some times, not ever, the command lines get irresponsive, you can't type a command until something else happens , like clicking a menu item.
It's known that the ribbon get useless with FIBERWORLD=0, but some contextual Ribbon tabs, like the Text Editor Mode seems to function.
Not sure if this is to be blamed on AutoCAD and the Fibers issue, or just a bug in Visual Studio, but I have had some pretty strange behavior when trying to step through functions, usually using a breakpoint to stop the code at the place I am interested in.
In particular I have seen the code "stop" at my breakpoint, highlighting the next statement, but then without touching any F keys or clicking any of the step buttons, the code completes, but Visual Studio still has everything shown as if it is stopped. At this point the step buttons and F keys don't do anything, and AutoCAD is unresponsive until you click the Play button, but the code has already run, and pushing the Play button does not cause the remaining code to run again. It just seems to re-sync AutoCAD and the studio to both realize there is no active call stack, and AutoCAD is ready to accept commands. Unless of course the code that got executed caused AutoCAD to crash, which was happening in some of the cases I'm talking about.
The worst part (or best part, depending on your point of view) is that it is not positively repeatable, meaning at the time, I could repeat the steps exactly, 5 times in a row, and have it fail in this manner 4 times and work correctly the fifth time.
when starting AutoCAD 2012 for debugging with FIBERWORLD=0, using command function in LISP will stop the initialization
i had to remove all these lines from my LISPs that are executed at the startup
>> I have no FIBREWORLD and no NEXTFIBREWORLD variable in my AutoCAD Mechanical 2012 German.
hast Du vielleicht nur die Worte falsch geschrieben? Versuch mal NEXTFIBERWORLD.

Uups, ich Dödel!
Dabei war ich so sicher dass ich es richtig geschrieben hatte. Liess mich zufest von fibreglass leiten. Habe aber auch nach *fib* und *nex* gesucht und nichts gefunden - klar bei internen Sysvars! Ah, ich könnt mich ...!
Correct spelling is the key to the treasure
Danke (für den Kick in den Hintern ;-))
so I just read about new features in ACAD2013 and i found this: .NET Framework 4 needs to be targeted in Visual Studio.
afaik that means, you have to use VS2010 and that means that we will encounter the problem with breakpoints again
is there any progress with the fibers?
