This is the same problem as 2012. Workspace is set then saved, then upon opening the program after closing the workspace is loaded incorrectly eg. docked panels flipped, Navbar reappearing. The same is for when a new dg is opened or the CUI is accessed.
We as a company have a Cad Manager who installs the program on our workstations, we have a company cad cui that we use alongside the stock standard autocad cui. We installed 2013 without migrating any settings from prev versions, and set up our indiv workspaces from scratch. again. Latest Servicepacks are installed, drivers are up-to-date, hardware is more than capable.
Shouldnt mean that the workspace wont stay as its set and saved as surely..
Make sure your workspace is saving where you think it is, and make sure its not defined in the Enterprise CUIx. Also check how AutoCAD is being started - there may be a workspace argument ( "/w", I think) which specifies the workspace to use at start-up. And check to see if your in-office start-up system is setting a specific workspace.
Right - checked all that, all legit. Did the whole startup thing with /w "workspace etc". Still no good. Ive got unwanted tool pallete turning up, and docked palletes still flipping over.
And now ive lost the FILLET & CHAMFER commands. Handy
I'm having a somewhat similar problem here too.
ACA 2013... the big difference tho between my issue and Nathan's is that while my workspace *never* loads correctly when I first start ACA, most days it will at least load correctly after I reload my personal workspace after ACA is up and running.
However, about 2-3 times a week even after ACA is up and running and I've reloaded my specific workspace, it still doesn't wind up correct.
So I have to manually reposition things (the main things affected are left and right-docked palettes), save my workspace again, and hope that next time I load it it is correct.
Nothing is changing my workspace between startups, there's nothing we have in-house that is running one day and not the next that would affect it, etc., etc.
ACA is its own beast, because of the way it handles some of its tools it doesn't behave just like AutoCAD. Are you automatically saving workspace changes, or manually saving them?
Care to define "legit" in your context? A quick breakdown of your Main/partial-Enterprise/partial organization would help.
I wonder if lockui is set to zero?
