Re: Where did the window go???

there is a similar workaround for MULTILEADERs containing blocks with attributes.

Use (command "DDEDIT" (entlast))

but once again you need to check whether the mleader block has editable attributes

& the mlleader is not on a locked layer.

Pain in the proverbial

Just installed 2012 & having the same issues with custom insert routines & attributes not popping up to edit as they used to.   I tried the (initcommandversion 2) in front of the code....couldn't get it to work.  Were there any simpler solutions?

I did find the solution. By placing (INITCOMMANDVERSION) prior to the (command "insert... The command has been around since 2009 but I'm not sure why it stopped working in 2012. Very annoying.

*Copied from another post*

I think this has been issue has been officially addressed in SP1.


I have been dreading the coding rework to get our tool palettes upgraded to work with 2012. I already had to completely redo them in 2009 because the standard toolbar scripting (^c^c_layer ...) would no longer work in the same manner as it did in previous versions. I didn't want to have to go through that pain again.


Anyway, I decided to install the service pack today and now the dialog is firing without any work arounds ...
