    Default ucsfollow not sticking in modelspace

    Has anyone else had a problem with ucsfollow not sticking in modelspace since upgrading to 2008? IE: Set ucsfollow to 1, save and exit, go back in and it's reverted back to zero. We don't have any startup rotines running that would cause this so I am a bit of a loss.

    Chuck,
    Just off the top of my head it sounds as though it is changing with a profile load. The icon on the desktop has a profile that it loads when you start software. The default is /p "AutoCAD" . If you create a different profile with the change already made then make sure icon properties is set to load that profile.
    I am not sure this is the culprit just one of the things you can check.

    Thanks for the reply Jim. Unfortunately we're not loading any profiles. Also, the UCSfollow variable is susposed to be save in the file. I can't figure it out.

    For the benefit of anyone doing a future search on this issue. Here is the reply from Autodesk support on this issue:

    Chuck,

    I can confirm that this is a known issue in our 2008 software. The problem is scheduled to fixed in the next major release of AutoCAD.
    Unfortunately, I do not have a workaround that will maintain the UCSFOLLOW value in model space between drawing sessions.
    Please let me know if you have any questions.

    Best Regards,


    Autodesk Support Team

    I have the same problem.
    When i change ucsfollow setting from 0 to 1. And i leave modelspace to paperspace, when i come back in model. The setting is back on 0! Very frustreating. I have tride to change the acadvar.ini file. I can change this but, in the first drawing it is 1. But when i change model/paper again its back to 0.

    Is this a bug? Or a setting in cad?

    It's a known bug in 2008 that did not get fixed with SP1.

    For now I have my AcadDoc.lsp run and change it to "1" when a drawing is open...

    Fixed...



    Thanks because I did not notice it and
    no user told me they were having any problems with it...

    (setvar "ucsfollow" 1)

    Also, i have used a program
    which along with changing space
    also resets ltscale along with a few other things
    that AutoCAD have always forgot to do...

    We don't use those s2s tabs at the bottom of views. We use this TT for years.
    Here is a look.

    (defun c:TT ()(Setvar "cmdecho" 0);1=arch 2=Eng 4=MM 6=Meters
    ;(if (=(getvar "userr3")0)(progn(Alert "\nYou Need to run DDS\n")(exit)))
    (if (=(getvar "userr3")0)(progn (load "DH-dds2") (c:dds2) ))
    (if (= (getvar "tilemode") 1) ;if your in Model Space
    (progn
    (cond
    ;((and (= (getvar "USERR3") 0))(progn (command "userr3" "1")))
    ((and (= (getvar "USERI1") 0)) ; imperial
    (progn
    (command "ltscale" "1")
    (command "setvar" "psltscale" "1")
    (command "textsize" ddsth)
    (command "DIMSCALE" "1")
    (command "DimAssoc" "1")
    (if (=(getvar "userr5")1)(progn (command "insunits" "1")))
    (if (=(getvar "userr5")2)(progn (command "insunits" "1")))
    (if (=(getvar "userr5")4)(progn (command "insunits" "4")))
    (if (=(getvar "userr5")6)(progn (command "insunits" "4"))); Added for 2006 insertion blocks

    ))
    ((and (= (getvar "USERI1") 2)) ; metric Milli
    (progn
    (command "ltscale" "25.4")
    (command "setvar" "psltscale" "1")
    (command "textsize" "3")
    (command "DimAssoc" "1")
    (command "dimscale" "1")))
    );end first cond
    (command "tilemode" "0" "DimAssoc" "1" )(setvar "ucsfollow" 1) ; Switch to Paper Space
    );end first progn
    (progn
    (cond
    ((/= (getvar "USERR2") 0)(command "textsize"(getvar "USERR2") "dimscale"(getvar "USERR4")))
    ((and (= (getvar "USERR1") 0))(progn (command "userr1" "1"))))
    (command "ltscale" (getvar "USERR1")"dimlfac" "1" "tilemode" "1" "DimAssoc" "1")(setvar "ucsfollow" 1)
    (if (=(getvar "userr5")2)(progn (command "insunits" "1")))
    (if (=(getvar "userr5")4)(progn (command "insunits" "4")))
    (if (=(getvar "userr5")6)(progn (command "insunits" "4"))); Switch to Model Space
    );end second cond
    )(Setvar "cmdecho" 1)(princ))
    *****
    BTW: the DH-DDS2 is another program which set all the user vers on the drawing which this program uses to reset each and everytime a user open and/or moves from s2s...

    I modified the 'Z axis' button to look like this:
