changes to form not visible while debugging

Hi all,


I'm using visual studio 2010 and autocad 2012 x64. When I make (visual) changes to a form in the editor between debugging, for example the width of the form, the changes aren't visible on next debugging, it's still the same width as it was before. Same thing for font size, when changed the changes are not showing when debugging again. Almost seems like autocad remebers the previous layout of the form. A new control added between debugging shows up fine. Can anyone tell me what's going on and how to resolve this.

AutoCAD remembers the size and position of your form when you use ShowModalDialog or ShowModelessDialog.


You can remove the entry from the registry under this key:




Under that key, there will be a key with your form's fully-qualified class name, that contains the persisted data.

Thanks, that solved most of the issues. The font not updating turned out to be an error in my code.
