SketchBook Designer data can only be saved in DWG file format

"SketchBook Designer data can only be saved in DWG file format and will be omitted from other file types."

 

Why do we get this message?

 

I don't care about "sketchbook" (whatever it may be), nor about "other file types"... Now... how do I make sure this message doesn't appear?

 

http://forums.autodesk.com/t5/AutoCAD-2012/Sketchbook-error-in-Autocad/td-p/3015524 does not answer anything except confirm that I'm not the only one annoyed by it.

Hi,

 

I think this warning message comes from SketchBook Designer addin. I guess you may have installed those products from Suite installer.

 

So maybe you can try to uninstall the addin of SketchBook Designer for AutoCAD and see if the message goes away. see snapshot.

Nevermind...  I figured out how to stop the message so copy works again.

Will uninstall SketchBook designer addin work for you?

Go to Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Programs and Features, then find a program like SketchBook designer addin?

Thanks.

Unstalling the "SketchBook" at the control panel solves the error message when saving a drawing.

I am getting the same error in a couple of my drawings, but do not have this "sketchbook" installed. It is not listed in my control panel/programs and features. I do have a "sketch-up" add on for Autodesk though. Would uninstalling this remove this annoying error?
