One one monitor, I have a spreadsheet with hyperlinks to all of the drawings in a project.
On the other monitor, I have an AutoCad Mechanical 2011 session running.
When I click a hyperlink, the drawing generates in the Acad session, and then the WHOLE ACAD SESSION MOVES TO THE MONITOR WITH THE SPREADSHEET. Each time this happens, I have to resize, move, and then maximize the drawing window so that I can view the spreadsheet and the acad session at the same time.
In a typical day, this action is repeated about 120 times, and is extremely annoying.
Is there some way to tell AutoCad to stay where I put it? Please advise. thanx... jpp
We have the same problem here.
Very very annoying.
We have tried both autocad on primary monitor and excel on primary monitor. on clicking on a Hyperlink in excel, Autocad simply resizes and goes to the monitor where excel is. this behavour is consistant with MSOffice 2000, 2007 and 2010. with Acadm 2008 to 2012 on Windows XP, Vista 64 & Win 7 64bit.
Autodesk Product Design Suite Premium 2012 has some serious problems with Hyperlinks which I want to post in a different thread.
