I tried to print, and then autocad crashed. it doesn't even work if you uninstall autocad and try to reinstall it. is there a way to reinstall it?

Almost 3 months since Lion came out and still no patch for AutoCAD 2011. I think the 2011 version was really just a beta test version and now that 2012 is out it will be forgotton and unsupported.

Hello,

 

You can now download Update 3 (which provides compatibility suport with Lion) from the Autodesk Product Support website.

Thank you,

mhamon, I really hope not. 2012 seems to be far more stable than 2011, but 2011 should work without crashing constantly (including when the program is open, not doing anything, and I go elsewhere, come back and it crashed all on its own). :smileysad:

AS mentioned above, the patch is out ... but!!!

I applied the patch after appying updates 1 and 2.  I had applied those previously however Autocad 2011 kept shutting down without warning.

 

After applying updates 1, 2 and 3 - Autocad 2011 for Mac STILL shuts down without warning.  So, I deleted Autcad and reinstalled as the out of the box versions - no patches.  It works without crashing.  Slow, but it works.

 

In my opinion, Autodesk is really more about selling 2012 than supporting 2011.  Just saying!

you can't create materials in the MAC version of autocad: http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/ps/dl/item?siteID=123112&id=15833488&linkID=15839490

So, not to sound redundant, but I just installed AutoCad 2011 for Mac to my Lion OS Mac. It opened up, and even opened one file - then shut down. Now it won't start at all. Is there a fix coming? At all? I have installed both patches - and that doesn't make any difference.

Hi,

 

You should install all THREE Updates (Update3 solves problems on Lion OS)

Not for me.  I have given up trying to run Autocad R11 with the patches and am still running OSX 10.6.8 instead of Lion.
