Ribbon Bug

Acad 2013 32bit on XP Pro


I use the Ribbon as a palette.

I'm creating a Dynamic Block with 3 visibility states (Plan, Front, Side).

When I try to change from one visibility state to another using the Ribbon pull-down it keeps reverting back to the previous view.


To make it stick I have to use the visibility state dialogue box.

You're talking about when you're in the block editor, right?


For me, the ribbon tool updates the drawing area when changing the current visibility state, but the name of the visibility state in the pulldown does not change. That's got to be a bug. BTW it works the same with the ribbon docked at the top. It's definitely screwy.


Maybe it's tied to the in-palette preview functionality. That's pretty new, so there's bound to be a fix needed here or there.


Quick Properties works correclty.

It does appear that whilst in the Block Editor when you set Visibility States, the dropdown sticks to the topmost Visibility


State in the dropdown.  This issue has been noted for action.
