Note - working with variables

System variables influence behavior of AutoCAD commands or elements.
When you enter a variable into the command line and hit ENTER, following line shall be displayed:

  • Enter new value for VARIABLENAME <X>:

where "x" is current variable value. Program expects new value to be entered after colon. Once entered, the variable shall be updated to the new value after we hit ENTER.

File dialog window is not displayed while attempting to save a file (FILEDIA)

Variable "FILEDIA" controls whether the file dialog window (mini browser) shall be displayed in the moment of file saving or not.
Variable value can be either "1" or "0".
  • FILEDIA<1>: file dialog window (mini browser) shall be displayed
  • FILEDIA<0>: file dialog window shall not be displayed. Saving options are offered in the command line window.

"Delete" is not working and some of the context menu (right –click menu) commands are not displayed (PICKFIRST)

If "Delete" is not working and some of the context menu (right –click menu) commands are not displayed change the PICKFIRST variable value to "1".

Note:
This System variable controls whether you can select objects before you start a command.
  • PICKFIRST<0>: You can select objects only after you start a command
  • PICKFIRST<1>: You can also select objects before you start a command

TeleCAD-GIS (AutoCAD)  displays an error alert when I try to use INSPECT button

 
Permanent solution for this problem is to install service pack for AutoCAD 2012/AutoCAD MAP 3D 2012.
Quick (but lasting) workaround is to change the value of ROLLOVERTIPS variable from 0 to 1.

Control how icons are displayed when using [Alt]+[Tab] keys combination to switch between the windows

If you are fond of using [Alt]+[Tab] keys combination to switch between the windows (in Windows OS) than you can use these variables to control how the icons will be displayed:
  • TASKBAR<0>: only the icons of the programs that you are working with shall be displayed. 
    TeleCAD-GIS shall be represented with only one icon regardless of the number of opened drawings.
  • TASKBAR<1>: the programs that you are working with shall be displayed and represented with an icon.
    On the other hand every single drawing opened in the TeleCAD-GIS shall be represented with its own icon.
Option "TASKBAR <0>" is much more convenient for work.
(You can still use another key combination to switch between drawings within TeleCAD-GIS ([Ctrl]+[Tab])).

There is a long halt during the download from the GIS database

If there is a long halt during the download of infrastructure from the GIS database (it seems that download never ends) it is possible that there are duplicated TCG elements in the drawing. Elements are duplicated by copying existing TCG elements (copying TCG elements is strictly forbidden). In this case you need to call INOVA technical support.

COPY/PASTE is not working

There are several causes of this one of which can be resolved by installing ARX Object Enabler. In other cases you should search the Internet (ACAD forums etc.) for the solutions

When I move a label, leader (arrow) doesn't move and it breaks apart from the rest of the label

If this is happening, open "Options" window by right-clicking on an empty drawing area and selecting "Options" command. Find "Selection" tab and mark "Object grouping" check box.

When I use "Base maps > Frames > Off" command to turn of raster image frames they are still selectable even though they are not visible

The purpose of the command "Base maps > Frames > Off" is to turn off raster image frames. This way raster images remain visible while their frames are not. The result is that images are not selectable. This is very convenient because we can work with the other elements of the drawing without the fear that we shall accidently move or delete base maps.
 
For this command to work properly three variables must be set in the following way:
  • FRAME<0>
  • IMAGEFRAME<0>
  • FRAMESELECTION<0>

How to display command line window

If you are unable to see command line window click on an empty space of drawing area to make it active and type COMMANDLINE (it doesn’t matter if you don’t see anything being typed) than hit ENTER.
 
Another way is to press [CTRL] + [9].
