Zooming Cancels Save As command?

160 Views, 3 Replies

I am trying to "save as" a dxf several shapes in a drawing.  Except that when I use my mouse wheel to zoom in, I get this odd message:

 

"xxx.dwg" has a command in progress.
Hit enter to cancel or [Retry]: *Cancel*

 

Never had this happen until this morning.

 

Any thoughts?

Is this a one-off, or every time?

Restart the program

Reboot the machine...

let us know what you've tried.

 

I first ran into the "command in progress" error when I was messing about in 3D orbit.  Try searching the web for "Command in Progress", it's been around for a while.

Thanks for the response.  I rebooted, still having the problem.  I looked up some other pages, and the issue is not related to tables. 

 

here is what I see if I type the 2 suggested check commands

 

Command: cmdactive
CMDACTIVE = 1 (read only)
Command: CMDnames
CMDNAMES = "SETVAR" (read only)

 

I've saved as a new drawing, same set of stuff.  The issue is when I try to save dxfs from shapes within.  Is the (read only) something to look into?

Sorry I missed replying sooner.

 

Don't think that's a problem.  Some sysvars are editable and some are read only, just the way it is.

 

Sorry I don't have any more suggestions.  Hope someone else can jump in here & help.
