Anybody know the Setenv, Setvar, Registry switch to change the bottom option bar (Snap, Grid, Ortho, Polar etc.) from icons to text please?

 

I know yu can right click and change it there, but I would like to do it when setting up new Autocad upgrades.

Eddy,

 

look inside the following registry key

 

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Autodesk\AutoCAD\Rxx.x\ACAD-xxxx:xxx\Profiles\StatusBar\Application

 

Cheers

Moshe

I found the registry value here:

Profiles / <myprofile> / General / "AppStatusBarUseIcons" =dword:00000000 (0) for off and 00000001 (1) for on.

 

Problem is that:

 

(vl-registry-write

(strcat "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\\" (vlax-product-key) "\\Profiles\\<my profile>\\General\\")

"AppStatusBarUseIcons" 0)

 

Does not work - any suggestions?

We are on Autocad Architecture 2012 I've just checked and it's the same for 2011... search your registry for:

"AppStatusBarUseicons"
