I just recently purchased AutoCAD 2012, but when I tried to read an AutoCAD LT file the screen was blank. Yet when I place the cursor over the file under RECENT DOCUMENTS the image is present..
Matt thankyou for your response. While waiting for authorization to purchase AutoCAD 2012, I created a drawing using AutoCAD LT 2011. When I try to open it using 2012, the file size looks correct. Is there a way to identify anything that may be causing the corruption? I don't suspect corruption because when the file does eventually open, much of the detail is missing in the drawing, but kind of in random locations.
The PREVIEW is just a simple raster snapshot imbedded in the DWG file and is in no way/shape/form an indication of what is actualloy inside the file.
So, I will ask again, what error does LT2012 report after it opens the file, if any? Tap the keyboard's F2 button, scroll all the way up to the top to where is starts to open the file, and look for it. Post back with that information if none of it makes sense.
