When originally setting up the plot style and plotter wizards on our server
(from the old pc) I copied and pasted shortcuts to the wizards on the old PC
onto the server.
When AutoCAD started it was looking for the wizard on the old PC. Instead
of giving a quick message that the wizards could not be found, it hung. Not
only did it hang for loading, but it hung for all commands requiring a
In essence, the shortcuts placed onto the server for the wizards pointed to
the old PC using UNC.
Why were shortcuts placed in the plotter_config, plotter_description and
plot_styles directories? Why did you not place the actual wizard
executables? This would have possibly prevented the situation I
I know it was a stupid act on my part to paste shortcuts onto the network
drive. But if handled correctly, AutoCAD would have identified and notified
me of the descrepancy. Whay were all of the dialog boxes affected?
This is a problem that can be avoided in the next release.
Why did I copy them in the first place?
Because I wanted all users using the same plot styles. If a user felt that
a new plot style was necessary, this would give them the capability to
create them and also would meke the new style available for all to use.
