    Default macro:

    I have a VBA macro loaded automatically with every drawing opened or new drawing created.

    (COMMAND "-VBARUN" "timelog.dvb!Module1.login")

    It works fine as long as you are opening one drawing at a time, but if I try opening multiple drawings autocad hangs with "MACRO:" at the command prompt. The only way I can get cad to continue is to use a cancel button I have programed into the menu.(the keyboard is unresponsive)

    Make sure your macros are executed from with the S::Startup Visual LISP routine.

    Default Re: macro:

    Try puting your macro in the ACAD.dvb this will auto load with autocad start

    then run you macro by calling it from the Appilcation.EndOpen Event of Autocad

    This way ever Drawing open will call the macro after it is open up.

    or you can make your macro the code for the Appilcation.EndOpen Event of Autocad
    Note:
