Running into a serious issue where certain dialog boxes are not appearing. The app runs as if the dialog is present (can't edit and menu bar is greyed out, but the box is nowhere to be found.
The two instnaces so far:
- Edit Page Set-up...: The print dialog shows up, but when I select the "Edit Page Setup..." button the app runs in a mode as if the box is there but it can't be seen. Hitting escape brings me back to the original print dialog box.
- Edit Attributes for a block: Same as a above, except the box shows up for a split second and then it's gone.
Things I've explored with no succes:
- checked all spaces
- hidden or closed all other windows
- permission repair
- tried on multiple dwg files
- Clean Screen mode
- hide all pallettes
Thanks in advance.

Solved! by BKSF. See the answer in context.
Reinstalling didn't work...deleting pref files seems to have done the trick.
It is in "~/Library/Preferences" folder, the name of the file is: com.autodesk.autocadlt.plist
If you are on Lion, then:
"Holding down the Option key will show the “Library” directory as an option in the Finders Go menu. The other nice thing about the Go menu is that after you have accessed ~/Library on multiple occasions, it will start to appear in the “Recent Folders” submenu for easy repeat access."
I am experiencing the exact same problems that you have already described. The dialogue box fails to appear when I go to "page setup" from plot mode. Everything freezes up and won't go back to normal till I've hit "escape".
I have tried locating "com.autodesk.autocadlt.plist" but it isn't in my library directory under preferences.
Are you looking in the system Library vs user Library? The preference file should be in the Pref folder in the user library (user library hidden by default - you would need to select the Go menu in teh Finder while holding down the Option key to reveal the user Library, as Maxim describes above.)
This is happening to me when I try to ATTEDIT - I see the box pop up momentarily and then it goes away and I cant edit my blocks that are tied to attributes.
I might have turned something off with att(...) command line (0,1,2). Does anyone know how to fix this?
