Is anyone else having the problem that I do with the "Layer" setting changing to layer 0 after editing a survey figure? The hotfix did not correct that problem for me.
I recently did an update to my C3D13 install to SP3 due to the bug posted here, I had not used field book files, perfering the ascii format. I notice that I could not edit the figure (hence the SP install), however when I did the install this did not resolve the problem. Im going to run a reinstall to see if this resolves the issue, as I have had numerous issues the the SDB from the start, the main one being the inability to use osnaps when the toolbar is docked during the translation process.
I think some of the issue may stem from the methods I use to create my projects. Usually I have a default shortcut template with an sdb that I use to create my project folder, then create the sdb (same folder name). Some how I think my transition from C3D12 to C3D13 has done something to the default sdb causing these problems.
If anyone has any suggestions feel free to chime in.
We'll a reinstall did not solve this problem, did they remove the edit figure functionality from figures using a field book file?
What does your figure property dialog box look like? Are you even getting the dialog box up? Is the place where the vertices at the bottom of the figure properties window gone?
I noticed this when we switched to 2013 and I had to convert the figure from a vector based figure to a chain based figure. I have a post about this because the help files do not explain anything about this or why it even exists. I've attached a PNG showing a figure that was created in 2012 orginally and migrated to 2013. All of a sudden I couldn't edit the vertices in my figures. There's a button on the upper right that I've circled that converts it to the method C3D used to use.
That was it.
The thing I dont understand is why is that happening I created a new survey database which I would have assumed would have been a C3D2013 Survey Database. I even went through and did a reinstall so as to get all new files just to verify this.
I must have something going on with my default database that makes C3D think that I am using a 12 database. Originally when I installed 13 it was a new install on a new system and I had numerous C3D12 files that were created, I wonder if I did copy a 12 sdb file over my 13 file - and this is causing all the issue. However, I would think a reinstall would resolve that.
So now if my default sdb is a 12 sdb and not a 13, how would I go about changing it.
