Adam, and others:
I have "all" set under the layer filters already, and it's still scanning. Am I not understanding something correctly? I'll attach a screen shot of where I'm looking for this magical fix.
This scanning stuff is wasting all kinds of time!
any help on this one?
Have you seen this?
I'm only using the standard Autocad Imperial template, and I bet I haven't added ten layers to it. So the number of layers isn't probably the issue. Also, according to the link you provided (thanks for that) I already have that box unchecked that it recommends.
Could the scanning tile be related to the amount of RAM I have? I only have 4 gb...
I've never used "purge" before. What exactly does that do?
Purge will get rid of unused Layers, Blocks, Text Styles, etc. You can select which specificaly you want to purge or let it delete all unused items. I'd suggest reading the help entry on it for a better understanding.
From reading this thread It sounds a little like the age old floating dialogue issues we ran into in previous versions since being included.
Does this occur when you don't have the layer dialogue open? If not then I would sudgest going back to the Old layer dialogue [LayerDlgMode] (I haven't used the new floating one since it was incorporated and have never had this issue in R11 - 13) The other thing that has upset and hung things is the digital signitures when on.
Sorry still not using R2014 no real reason to cross over yet and I'm awaiting first round of Hotfixes.
nope, just one layout at a time. It usually scans everytime I go from one layout to another, or to a layout from model space.
I tried SHOWLAYERUSAGE and then accepted the <0> and it hasn't scanned since. Although it's great that I'm not wasting 30-60 seconds everytime I switch views, it bugs me not really knowing what that command is doing. Can someone shed some light?
I'm not sure how to explain it other than this:
