I recently upgraded to Civil 3D 2011 from C3D2010. I have used the same ACAD.PGP file for years that includes the shortcut C for the COPY command. Up until C3D2011 this would always allow me to copy an entity multiple times, (the default when COPYMODE is set to 0).
I am running C3D2011 64bit on WIN 7 64bit OS. It happens with other commands too that use a dialog box normally, i.e. INSERT - it only brings up the command line version of it.
Does anyone know what causes this?
I'm not sure about the copy issue. I do not have the issue using an alias for copy.
For commands that are running in command line mode, type cmddia at the command line and make sure it is set to 1.
Enter the Copy command and select an object to copy. Type O to see what mode (Single/Multiple)Copy is in.
Thank you very much for your suggestions, they are good things to look at, but all is well on those fronts:
Enter new value for CMDDIA <1>: *Cancel*
Select objects: 1 found
Current settings: Copy mode = Multiple
Specify base point or [Displacement/mOde] <Displacement>: o
Enter a copy mode option [Single/Multiple] <Multiple>:
I had the same problem in Civil 3D and this is how I fixed it:
* In Command line type in OPTIONS.
* Click SELECTION tab.
* Under Selection Modes, UNCHECK the "Use shift to add to selection" box.
