autocad redrawing object slowly

Autocad has just started this wierd thing where if I move an object it disapears and starts redrawing it line by line very slowly. What's going on?

Hi User,

 

Please check your sysvar DRAGP1.

If the value is 0, pls try to change it to 5000.(default value)

 

Hope it is useful for you.

thankyou. I discovered what was wrong last night just after i posted. My second question now is why do my settings keep randomly changng on their own accord? I've had this sort of thing happen before. (The dragp1 was set to 0 yet I didn't change it.)

Hi,

 

Do you use custom AutoLISP routines?

Sometimes this could be the case: suppose that for some reason the author of routine change some of system variables for it's own need inside Lisp routine and doesn't revert back them to default values when the routine ends.

I don't use lisp routines, this was in LT. Before I was using standard autoCAD yet the same thing kept happening.

OK, sometimes application crashes can lead to changes in system variables....

Something new everyday:

Maxim_k is indicating something that may be going on if this is happening and has happened in the past.

Do you have any Macros or Script routines that you use regularly?

Did you bring any of these from AutoCAD to the LT seat?

There could be a setting in one of these that triggers the setting of the Variable to 0.
