2010 ET Tframes not toggling

TFRAMES command in 2010 doesn't seem to toggle
image frames.  It just continuously turns them off.  Anyone else
notice this or is it just me?

It's old and no longer useful: FRAME system variable, usage explained in
HELP in 2010. A little lisp and you can get it to toggle as you wish.

If you want to use this with Wipeouts, lisp is your friend too.

Thanks Dean.
Problem is we've temporarily got people on 2008 and 2010 and one of our
shortcuts simply runs TFRAMES toggle (in 08). That's still available in
2010 but apparently doesn't work right so I modofied the macro to
(if (= (getvar IMAGEFRAME) 0)
(setvar IMAGEFRAME 1)
(setvar IMAGEFRAME 0)
)
as a toggle. But that doesn't work in 08 because IMAGEFRAME is a command in
08 but not a variable. Now looks like IMAGEFRAME (and as you point out,
also FRAME) is a var in 10 but not 08. So I may be able to use a command
toggle for both but can't simply test for the current var value the same way
in both anymore....

Not a huge deal, just have 2 macros now for it in the transition. An
inconvenient bug I think.

You can lisp "something new" called TFRAMES if that makes everyone happy, in
both programs.

Don't let a command name be the only thing holding you back from using the
program the way you want: it's the reason you dropped a ton of money on it.

no duh.

just trying to easily get the same thing to work in both versions. TFRAMES
is apparently still a command in 2010, it just doesn't work correctly.

Great.  Now it seems that the IMAGEFRAME var
in 2010 (not a var in 08) does not control wipeout frames...


style="BORDER-LEFT: #000000 2px solid; PADDING-LEFT: 5px; PADDING-RIGHT: 0px; MARGIN-LEFT: 5px; MARGIN-RIGHT: 0px"

Restarting AutoCAD seems to bring the TFRAMES toggle back to life.
