Apparently the Blipmode command is obselete in 2012. I want to turn it off and can't seem to. I've tried to access the setvar but get an unknown variable error. Any ideas? If the command and the variable are obselete, why are the blips still there?
They're deprecated and hidden, but still all there. They just need a little digging to unearth:
How many releases they remain there is anybody's guess.
Thanks. The only problem is that you went "way" over my head. Is there an easy way to turn it off from the command line? Something like the old "Blipmode - off".
I really don't know. I don't know if it's possible or not but the only thing I can think of is that it came in turned on when I migrated the settings from 2011.
Taking shutting it off a little further, in the Toolbar, Customization, there is a command called "Blip". all it does is turn blipmode off. Kinda makes me wonder why that would be in there.
Thanks for the solution. I myself use blipmode because I like to know exactly where I picked last, or if I'm doing an area
calc and need to make sure of the points I'm picking are exact. My fellow co-workers, however,
don't like blipmode and pretty much keep it turned off. Some like it, some don't.
It doesn't bother me, because F7 works just fine to clear it off, and the fact I actually use it. lol
Wonder how many other hidden commands are in there. Hmmmmm. Might have to go fishing.
