Re: Recent documents list

I'm now running into this problem and it's very frustrating. If I open a drawing and do not close C3D 2013 the drawing shows up in the recent list.  If I close C3D and reopen it, the recent list doesn't remember the last drawing I opened and instead lists every DST I've ever created (there aren't many, but enough to fill the default list).  The only way to keep a drawing on the list after closing C3D is to pin it.  How annoying.

Re: Recent documents list

I think I have found a good work around for this problem that doesn't involve editing the registry or installing any extra software, since my company has removed all administrator privilages from all users I had to find some other way.

I say "I think" because I have only tried it on 4 *.dwg files.  If you all would help me test it out that would be great.  Here is what you do (I'm going to use Civil 3D in my example):

1) Open C3D 2012 and go to Options.

2) Click the Open and Save tab.

3) In the Application Menu section, change the Number of recently-used files number, I made it 50 (the Max).

4) Click OK.

5) Click the C3D Icon on the upper left side of the program screen and click the recent documents icon.

As you can see, it still puts the *.dst files ahead of the *.dwg, but at least the most recently opened *.dwg's are listed.

Hope this helps.

I had mine set at 50 for ages, but it was still pushing the .dst files above all the .dwg s.

 

 

*edit*

Sorry, I realized that's what you said.  So, yes, this does work in a manner of speaking.  You get the dwgs somewhere, rather than nowhere.  But you still have to go digging rather deep for them.

I also found when I had the list set to 50 that it took a good 20 seconds to open when I click on the icon.  That was a dealbreaker for me, the reason why I set it back to 15.


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

**Attention Autodesk:**

 

We are still waiting for this issue to be resolved (for several years now I see).

 

I should be able to open the drawings I had open yesterday without having to sort through DST files that I haven't opened for a year. 

 

I know that if you click ‘open’, your most recent drawing folder will open, however, opening the rest of yesterday's drawings should be a simple 2 clicks with the recent list, and not having to sort/scroll, pin each time, edit the registry, or clear the recent list with an external manager.

 

By the way, if I wanted to open a recent DST file, then I would use the ‘Recent’ list within the Sheet Set Manager that automatically starts with AutoCAD.

 

Please advise.  Thank you.

 

 

Current version:  AutoCAD 2013 SP1.1 BDS

I did but but it doesn't work.  Each time I open it, an error window pops up saying "AutoCAD Recent Documents Manager  has stopped working..."  and then closes.  I assumed it was not compaible with the Building Design Suite version.

 

I'll resort to the Bug Report Submission.  Thanks guys.

Which version of the BDS do you have? I'd like to figure out why this doesn't work for some people and you are the second one now to mention this.
