Scanning Drawing While Saving/Printing

276 Views, 4 Replies

Hello All,

 

I have an issue with a drawing created in AutoCad 2002.  Whenever I open it to edit it and then either Print or Save it shows Scanning Drawing and takes considerable amount of time for this process.  I have done a purge so far but that did not help.  Any suggestions?

 

 

Best Regards

KenJG

Thank You

scanning drawing? So the problem is this one file? Is the location of it unique? Is the file unique compared to others you use?

PURGE doesn't fix anything, try AUDIT or RECOVER and see if that helps.

Hi,

 

>> try AUDIT or RECOVER

or run WBLOCK to create a new (cleaned) drawing from your current DWG.

 

>> scanning drawing?

Yes, I saw that message (long, long ago) in the lower left part of the status bar (where you also see the load-time progress-bar while a file is loading). But at the moment my brain does not get the solution to the awareness.  animierte smilies traurig trauern weinen

Hello All,

 

Thanks for the help/replies.  It looks as if the procedure WBLOCK seemed to have solved the problem.  I'm curious on why this fixed the problem, what does WBLOCK actually do?

Writes a new header section of the DWG file in current format and inserts the existing objects inside.

Once inside, these objects are also updated to the current format/structure.

Educate yourself by DXFOUT the file and open this newly created file using a ASCII text editor (notepad).
