LISP - Drag and Drop
« on: August 26, 2014, 02:04:48 PM »
ok: here is the problem.

I've inherited a few setups for AutoCAD 2012 and AutoCAD 2014.
They both work great. I'm a specialist and I've configured AutoCAD now for over 15 years.
But, I have found that I am not able to Drag ANY files into either version.
I have tried DWG files, TXT files, LSP files, and SCR files.

All of them change from a file image (on the desktop) to a BLACK CIRCLE with a LINE THROUGH IT, when I try to drag them into AutoCAD.

Can someone direct me to a fix. this is driving me nuts.  :tickedoff:

Dragging into the command window gives me the black no-can-do symbol, but dragging and dropping onto the active canvase loads the .lsp file

sure you're not dragging shortcuts?

Do the new security features affect drag-n-dropped LISP files?

of course they are not shortcuts. they are all files being dragged from windows explorer.
I have dragged them all over the AutoCAD interface and non of them go in...

I've looked at

SECURELOAD
TRUSTEDPATHS

but none of it is locked down.
plus ... its not working inside acad2012 either

sorry to say i can't replicate it -  dragging in a .lsp loads it, and dragging in a .txt prompts for an mtext location.,  i'll be following this thread, and hope you can ID the problem.
