    Default Unable to edit plot style table though plot dialog box

    I have recently installed LDD/Civil 3D 2007. After completing a drawing in LDD I open the plot dialog box, before printing I needed to change one of the pen assignments in the plot style table. When I clicked on the edit table button inside the plot dialog box nothing happens, I am unable to bring up the table for editing. I went to the folder where my ctb files are stored and was able to edit them there.

    Does anyone know why the button in the plot dialog is disabled?

    Thanks in advance

    I don't know why it is disabled but I can confirm that behavior in LDT 2007 SP2. The button is enabled in Map.

    I also checked a computer with SP2A and it appears to be working there. You may want to install the latest service pack.

    I installed the service packs as suggested and it has fixed the dialog box issue but now when I have my points layer visible the program slows down a lot. If I have the points layers on and I try something very simple, like trying to draw a line, it slows down so much that all I see is flashes of where my pointer is it would take about 5 minutes to draw one line.

    I am not seeing a performance reduction like you are. The drawing I tested it in only has about 930 points though.

    The drawing I'm working on only has about 200 points... it must be something wrong with the software. Any ideas?

    Sorry, I don't have any good ideas. There's always the nuclear option (uninstall/reinstall). You could contact your reseller or subscription support if you are on subscription.
