Expert Level Resetting to Zero
« on: February 04, 2004, 02:18:43 PM »
The Expert level keeps returning to 0 when I restart AutoCAD 2000i.   I've checked the programs I have in acad.lsp and none of them refer to this setting.  I also have searched the Autdesk support site and I checked the contents of the startup suite unsuccessfully.

Any suggestions?

How about the acad2000doc.lsp?
What happens if you put the following in your acad.lsp?
(setvar 'expert 4)

You also need to check in VBA routines, startup suite programs and the profile *.arg

Ok Mark ... so I have a problem comprehending what I read ... errr .... look at .....

I still think that the profile MIGHT be a starting point to look at.

Did it set to (setvar "expert" 1) and it works fine.  Thanks.

Hey guys, I just took a look at the ... ahem .... help file and look at what I found ...

Quote from: Autodork

Type: Integer
Not saved
Initial value: 0
Controls whether certain prompts are issued.

0   Issues all prompts normally.
1   Suppresses "About to regen, proceed?" and "Really want to turn the current layer off?"
2   Suppresses the preceding prompts and "Block already defined. Redefine it?" (BLOCK) and "A drawing with this name already exists. Overwrite it?" (SAVE or WBLOCK).
3   Suppresses the preceding prompts and those issued by the LINETYPE command if you try to load a linetype that's already loaded or create a new linetype in a file that already defines that linetype.

4   Suppresses the preceding prompts and those issued by UCS Save and VPORTS Save if the name you supply already exists.
5   Suppresses the prompt, "That name is already in Use, redefine it?" issued by the -DIMSTYLE Save option when you supply the name of an existing dimension style.

When a prompt is suppressed by EXPERT, the operation in question is performed as though you entered y at the prompt. Setting EXPERT can affect scripts, menu macros, AutoLISP, and the command functions.


Note the fact that EXPERT is not saved AND it defaults to 0

Don't worry about it. Most people don't read the help file and half the time the help file isn't that great or is inaccurate.
