Thank you so much. EXPORTTOAUTOCAD command helped me renew my faith in AutoCAD. Finally I can copy elements from one drawing to another. Thank you again Dean.
A bit late.. im sorry but please find attached the file. if you try to paste a block into it or element in it into another file it crashes. Ive tried all the suggestions in this forum.
ANy help would be appreciated.
Dynamic Block from Palette: No Problem.
Dynamic Block from Insert: No Problem.
Dynamic Block Copy/Paste: No Problem.
Dynamic Block Copy/Paste as Block: No Problem.
Standard Block from Palette: No Problem.
Standard Block using Insert: No Problem.
Standard Block Copy/Paste: No Problem.
Standard Block Copy/Paste as Block: No Problem
For the heck of it - Hatch from Palette: No problem.
The file is missing and attcahed XREF.
Could the XREF be the issue?
Yea, it happened!
I perused this thread and added to it. Maybe someone will see the bump and chime in again.
The answers here are no more useful than anything else tried.
Google returned a couple of hits that basically have said the same thing for the last 10 years.
One in particular from an Autodesk employee spoke to fixing an Open Space Object. (At least that is something different. Hopefully Dean will chime in to tell us what that is or even relevant.)
Your file crashes in LT2011, LT2012, LT2013, AutoCAD 2011-12-13, AutoCAD Architecture 2011-2012: your file is the problem since these programs do not crash here with that function.
What is the source of your file? Nothing I tried seems to fix it sadly except for a routrip to/from R12DXF format.
I cant be certain as the drawing comes from a consultant/s. but it can only be revit or autocad.
You mentioned you found a way to solve it though?
I saved it down to a R12 DXF and then back up to a 2010 dwg. but that didnt work. Not sure if that is what you meant?
Your file seems to be the problem based on testing here. Sorry, not much else I can do with it.
Wait and see if others can look into it more, but I can't find an easy fix.test
Here is the DXF and R14 DWG file that do not crash here: http://wikisend.com/download/292566/test.zip
Thanks for the file, but how did you create it? or clean it so it doesnt crash?
I tried saving it down a version and it still crashes. What did you do exactly? Prior to saving down?
