Toolspace Item View not working properly

2043 Views, 15 Replies

I'm having trouble viewing a list within Toolspace Item View. When I click the item in the tree nothing shows up in the item view. There should be a list of all my parcels but there is not. Graphical view works fine. List view works fine with other items in my tree except for my parcels. Also, when i right click parcels and click refresh I can see the list genereate in item view but then it quickly disappears. Any ideas what is going on?

Try changing the Top Row "Active Drawing Name" to Master View.

I've tried both. Nothing has worked. It's very odd. Everything displays fine in item view except for my parcels list. When I click individual parcels in the tree the graphical view displays properly. When I click other items such as points or surfaces they display as a list. I know the information is there because I can see it for a brief second when I click refresh parcels. It just disappears and I can't get it to display again. I've even reinistalled the software and gotten the same result. I'm trying to edit the parcel styles of mutiple parcels. Is there any other way to view a list of all my parcels and edit them in bulk other than in toolspace?

What version of C3D and which Service packs have been applied?

One way is to select one of the parcels in the drawing that you want to change the style of, right-click and choose Select Similar. This should select all of the parcels using that style. If you need to remove some, do so be normel slection removal, then use the Properties Manager to change the style.

I am using Civil 3D 2013. No service packs have been applied. Thanks Jeff. I will use the 'select similar' as a workaround but I'm still curious as to why it's not displaying properly in item view.

Ok, that was pretty easy to fix.

 

Open REGEDIT

Go to:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Autodesk\AutoCAD\R19.0\ACAD-Bxxx:xxx\Profiles\<<your_profile_name>>\Dialogs\AxUiMgrItem

Then look in the right pane for a AeccMgrParcel:List:AeccMgrPltProspector:smileytongue:rospector

Click on it, press F2 to enter rename mode, give it a new name like "X"

Go back to C3D, and try again.

C3D will recreate the binary data with the correct values.

Close REGEDIT.

Do not try to sort again!

This fix is great, but still a bit of a pain.  i have created a LISP routine you can run that fixes this.  See attached.

 

This command is FIX.

 

When the bug happens, run this command, click to somewhere else in the prospector then click on Parcels again and you should see the populated list.
