I'm having issues with Civ3d 2013. I pushed off upgrading because of the format change and the service pack release. I was hoping little glitches would be fixed.
Here are the a couple of glitches to date that I saw no resolution to in the long list of threads.
1. Layer filters do not filter, unless I have checked "Apply filter to toolbar". The problem is, I dont want to apply them to the toolbar.
2. Publishing to PDF - when set to lines merge (set in the page layout and the publish setting), the wipeouts dont work, and the background masks on leaders makes a faint border around the text in the PDF. When set to overwrite, to get the wipeouts to not print to the PDF as a big black blob, they have to be on a layer set to color 255. I can work around most of the wipeouts, except for dimensions because the background mask doesn't seem to take.
another complaint that doesn't have anything to do with AutoCAD, but since I'm venting... we just got a KIP 7100 printer/scanner. WORST printer/scanner we've ever had. Period. Getting the right driver, then getting the driver to produce good drawings to the correct paper size was ridiculous, and the gray shades still look like we're using a big dot matrix printer. Scanning is the most painful thing; compared to the Xerox 6204 we gave up, the quality is poor and PDF file sizes are huge.
If you know an answer to the top two issues, I'd appreciate insight.
We actuall upgraded from Civil 3D 2012, and were not experiencing this with that setup. The only other new thing in the office is the KIP printer.
I will post this in the Civil 3D forum as well.
I moved your original post to the AutoCAD forum to stimulate some responses as I have not seen the behaviour you are reporting both personally or in my research. Are you running a custom CUI or ARG profile? Maybe try a stock setup and see if that helps.
