In AutoCAD command line type this

 

(findfile "ACADDOC.lsp")

 This should return the path of ACADDOC.lsp

This is true - if acaddoc.lsp isn't found then follow my previous post

Hi I am not an expert by any means on CAD, however somethign has cause my computer to to that thing they're all talking about on this forum where you have to type the name of the drawing in to open it.

 

I have tried typing Fieldia=1 in and what ever i type it just says there is not a drawing of this name?!!?

 

Please help I have major project drawings to finish and i cant open them..... I also noticed I couldnt save as when recently working in CAD I had to save over what I had done.

 

I forgot to mention this is Civil 3D 2013

 

Thanks

Sam

If it's asking for the drawing name, type a tilde. It's normally at the top left of the keyboard, looks like this ~
Then, when you have a drawing open, type FILEDIA in the commandline. Hit enter. Then type 1. Enter.


Credit where credit is due! Give kudos or accept as solution whenever you can.

Hello;

What if the command line does not show up? I type in FILEDIA after the sentence: "Enter name of drawing to open <.>" and nothing happens

​Enter Filedia command and change value to 1

Just to clarify for those having difficulty understanding what you are being advised... If you happen to get the prompt for file opening or saving at the command line and not the dialog you expect to see, hit escape to exit the command and THEN type filedia at the command line and change the value to 1. Then try the open or save command again and you will see the dialog box. John
