Arch Desktop 2005 Autosaves & Editing 2D Sections..
« on: April 05, 2005, 10:27:51 AM »
I have my Autosave set to 3 minute intervals, for me this works great along with manually saving every 5 minutes or so. (some say 3 min is way too short, I'm not lightening fast, but I found that I can do enough things in 3 min that I don't want to redo). Any way we use 2D sections in most of our drawings, I've come to accept that I can't do a Manual save while in 2D Edit mode, but every time the AutoSave wants to do a save , I get "Saves are not allowed During Editing secession" which I then have to click OK to get rid of it. You can imagine it can get pretty annoying to have press OK to the same message every 3 min. It's like Pop up Spam in Autocad. Is there a way to suppress this dialog box while editing 2D. It seems to me that AutoSave's should get ignored during Editing secession. Which If you think about it Why can't I Save During 2D Section Edits or Editing Blocks that are in my current dwg. My other question would be is it possible to make a script that would disable or change that AutoSave time setting to say 10 min when in 2D Section Edits and have it revert back after the 2D Section Edits secession is over? TIA

The Silence is deafening...

Either my question was:

A: So abusurdly simple that no one will even spare the time to educate me.  :oops:

B: So complex that no one is capable of answering it and as a result ALL are hiding in shame and embarresment and waitng for me to "Drop the subject".  :shock:

C: Most people really aren't familiar with ADT 2005, and that is why no one has answered the post.  :?:


I might choose C, but that fact that no body has bothered to Disbute A or B still leaves me with guessing...  :D

Perhaps some brave soul can muster up the courage to respond.... :P

I fall in the "C" category.

Well Thanks, at least your out there and breathing.  :lol:

I posted this question on the Autodesk NG and got nil... :roll:

You'd think the most frequent users could at least respond  :cry:

Get the exact name of the command when you enter the 2d edits.
Go into the VBA Editor and setup a BeginCommand Event reactor, if the command is the one you found from above then set savetime to XX.

As to all the other stuff, I am working in ABS 3.3 (2002) so I can't help you there.
Murphy's Law applies to all.
Whatever can go wrong, will, and at the most inopportune time.

Thanks for replying to both my Posts, The 1st post was solved a while ago, because at that time I only Had ADT 3.3, But with 2005 You can select individual line with a Crossing window or multiple picks (much better now) And we started using the Customizing the Section style to color, we like it so far. :-D

My question is about the :

 :? :? :?

That went right over my head, I have some VBA routines autoloading, but that is the extent of my understanding.

I believe the command you are referring to is "Aec2dSectionResultEdit"

Could you provide some sample to help my accomplish this. TIA
