Why is this stupid bug introduced into 2011 not fixed yet? For every great wonder in the latest version there are stoopid bugs introduced to make work difficult. 2009 has stoopid bugs that weren't in 2006. Now 11 has stoopid bugs not in 9 (or 6). Upgrading is hard enough without really dumb bugs creeping in.
Ok so I will have to stay with 09 for longer. Maybe it will be fixed in 2012. But then there will be other bugs.
Did you do a search in the ACAD Architecture forum? If you search using the words "sky bug" you will find a post by a fellow who developed a lisp macro that works pretty well. I've been using it for a few days with good results. I know, the bug is ridiculous but this will help until (if, that is) further action is taken by Adesk.
Thanks, I might have posted my own lisp, not sure.
But this type of impediment is unacceptable especially past the first bug fix release, er, sorry patch update. It should have been fixed.
Thanks anyway for the direction.
Nathan, LOL. You are the guy with the lisp! I don't know that it's not fixed in the latest update, but personally, I never, ever, ever turn the sky on in my main drawings anymore because of this bug. I do all my renderings in View drawings only (separate drawing with nothing but xrefs).
Hahaha. Yeth is that me?!
I do multistory in one file. Makes rendering a lot easier but I only (mainly) work in residential or smaller commercial work but yes you are quite correct. Because Adesk can't seem to deliver a complete product anymore without breaking something else it's never a smooth easy process to upgrade. You have to have your work-arounds very much in place before doing so.
Odin's solution works.
