XREF - Right Click Issues

717 Views, 4 Replies

So I'm using AutoCAD Civil 3D and am having an issue with the UI when I select an XREF, right click and choose Open XREF the UI starts sucking royally. In the XREF drawing the UI doesn't want to interact with the drawing unless I change to another drawing and them come back into it. Then the right click menu doesn't show up and reverts to the last command setting. Closing the XREF drawing brings it back to normal. Before the SP I the UI would have issues with the layers and throw exceptions, but that doesn't appear to be happening anymore.

 

Here's a video showing it in action: http://screencast.com/t/whmRLMtiq6 When the help screen starts to load it's after I right click. 

 

Is this a known issue? I've tried doing a repair and it doesn't appear to have fixed anything related to this issue.

Hi,

 

just tried it (with small drawings, 4MB) and have not found any problem. The ribbons context functionality seems to be normal, the right-click context works normal.


A difference I have to your workspace: I have the command line docked (as in previous AutoCAD releases) and as there were some issues with undocked command lines you might try it do dock it.

 

Another question: what happens if you don't "open the XRef", but "Edit XRef in place" ==> same problems?

I tried docking the command line and got the same results. I don't have any issues with editing the XREF in place, everything works normally for that. If it's not a common problem or known issue I'll probably reinstall the program and see if it fixes the issue.

 

Thanks,

Just curious if the reinstall solved the issue. I have not been able to reproduce, so I am curious to learn your results.

So I tried doing a reinstall, but silly me neglected to save the gigantic monstrosity of an install of the Infrastructure Design Suite. So I had to download it from the website again. Didn't go well. Tried to download it through the browser, but it looked like someone published the subscription website without the javascript files that allow downloads. The buttons finally worked and I was able to download the install files. I then did a reinstall and AutoCAD Civil 3D was still exhibiting poor behavior. I uninstalled Civil 3D completely and reinstalled. It appears to work correctly now. The one difference in the installs is that I didn't install plain Jane AutoCAD this time. Not sure if that caused an issue.
