Thanks, Peter. Setting fieldeval to 0 before qsave allowed me to create data shortcuts from my drawing as well. My drawing had fields in mtext used to label the assemblies just as you stated.
There is a Hotfix available to correct this problem with C3D2012 SP2.1:
This hotfix is also required for creating cropped surfaces with C3D 2012 SP2.1.
I just got around to installing SP2.1 a few weeks ago but didn't install the hotfix since Autodesk has it listed below the service pack. I thought that list was supposed to be chronological and I thought service packs included all previous hotfixes.
Did Update 3 break this? Two different machines running 2012. One with Update 3 and the other still Update 2.1.
Opening the same exact file on both, I could create shortcuts on the 2.1 machine, but 3 could not. Kept telling me to save the file.
I reapplied the shortcut hotfix (just overwrote the AcFdEval.arx file that Update 3 must have overwrote) and I can now create shortcuts again on the Update 3 machine.
So it looks like Update 2.1 included the hotfix, then Update 3 that is not supposed to include any hotfixes broke it.
Anyone else notice this after applying Update3?
Yes, I just checked and have the same issue. The ARX file from the Hotix has the same Date &
Time as that in the install folder, but the sizes are 100k+ different. Strange. After replacing that ARX file I am getting load errors for another file, saying it doesn't exist, yet it does. Scratch that, evidently I had copied the old ARX file into my Service Packs folder. Re-Unzipping the HF file and copying that one worked.
The only DS creation issue I've seen was with a surface that had a boundary. I removed the boundary and I can create the DS just fine. That was pre-SP3 though.
i have an issue with one particular drawing with the DS file saving issue. i've purged , recovered, audited, hotfixed but it's still not letting me create new data shortcuts. i've already got data shortcuts that work fine, i just can't create any new ones. thoughts?
