when i save a dwg and close it, then click on open and highlight that dwg,
it does not display any image
is there a setting that allows the dwg previews to be displayed when you
open dwg files?

Does it show the preview frame? If not, in the "open" dialog, go to 'Views'
and check 'Preview"

Also, check to see if the option to save thumbnail previews has been disabled. Go to TOOLS>OPTIONS>Open and Save>Thumbnail Preview Settings to find out.

Go into the drawing and zoom extents, save, and see if that fixes the problem. Works for me sometimes.
