Question about PC Desktops

2 Answers

I am working in AutoCAD 2000 and am getting a .dxf file created by the Trimble Office Geomatics software. When I open the .dxf file in AutoCAD my points will have the point number and the point description but not the point elevation. I can't get this node feature to appear in my drawings after using a .dxf file to bring in the points.

Hi,

I may be able to help in the most general of ways having used several autoCAD programs myself but not this version of AutoCAD itself.

When you are done with your drawing in Trimble, are you saving or are you exporting. Are you compelled to render your drawing upon saving or do you have to render before saving.

And, more importantly, do you have the option to Export your drawing and then select the Program to export to. Or, is this what you are doing already.

And lastly, for everyone who will respond to your post, and you'll get some good replies and some weird ones and some like mine that may just double check your process; What version of Operating System are you using and what Platform are you on, Windows or Mac. If you are using Windows, have you applie XPSP3 yet (this patch has caused a lot of off the wall problems for many people).

When replying please address those of us who have asked a question by using the format: Worldvet: my problem is strictly with AutoCAD 200, thanks anyway. By including the board name you will help us to understand to whom you are replying.

Thanks.

Regards,
Worldvet

I download MS Office 2007 from Internet, However I don't have Product Key for this Product X12-30196. So I am getting error.


You can only use it as a trial version. It'll work until 60 days or a maximum of 120 usages, what ever comes first. You need to purchase a product key from Microsoft. Alternatively, you can try to download a free alternative called Open Office:

Here is the site: http://download.openoffice.org/
It does not look as good as Microsoft Office but it serves the purpose. The best thing about this software aside from being free is that it supports files created from Microsoft Office like word, excel and powerpoint.
You just need to get used to a different naming convention.

Cannot use miscrosoft word. entered the product from the back, still not working


if this is a recent laptop the version of windows on it is only a trial version and there is no product key - you have to buy one. however, if you bought your copy of microsoft word and the product key does not work then you would need to contact microsoft to obtain a replacement. then again, if you are looking for a word processor, you can get a full office suite for free from www.openoffice.org and will read all microsoft formats. if you create a document to send to anyone with ms office then remember to 'save as' and select ms office rather than just save.

I had a cad drawing and I was messing around with it and lost it tried recover and can't recover it. I had someone resend it to me and every time I get it it changes to a file I can't open it is white page...


Most CAD programs such as AutoCad have a history of recently opened files. In AutoCad go to TOOLS/ OPTIONS/ FILES/ Automatic Save location. There you should find a file with the same name but a different file extension such as .BAK (AutoCad back-up) You can set AutoCad to automatically save to any time period, such as every 15 minutes.

Make a copy of this .BAK file so you keep that unchanged, Then change the file extension of the copied .BAK file to .DWG. Then you should be able to open this file. A file with an extension containing the $ symbol needs to be recovered using the programs recovery tool, in FILE/ DRAWING UTILITES/ RECOVER

If you're using a different CAD program look for this backup file wherever the programs Autosave files are set to be stored.

One other possiblity is the file extesnsion is set by your computer to open with another program for some reason. Right click and hit "open with"

Let me know if this helps

all you need to know is the file extension of the file you downloaded. there are some common file extensions when attaching to the email . pdf , doc, if pictures the JPG,PNG, BMP, and many more. however if u have an office application program (Microsoft office,open office) all office files will be opened but if the file extension is PDF you must download and install the PDF reader. you can download it here http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep2.html.
Take note! Any other files which you don't whose the sender and the extension files is not on office application program not pdf or picture files maybe can harm your system so be sure to know the files.

Copying Microsoft Word macros to new computer system


Macros are stored in one of two places, Irene - and you decide where and when you create one. When you select Tools -> Macro -> Record New Macro you’re prompted to either create the macro in the global template (normal.dot) file, or the document you’re currently working on - by default, normal.dot is selected so that the macros are available in all documents you create.

Your normal.dot file is also where all custom styles, toolbars and autotext entries are stored, and it’s possible to transfer all of these - plus your macros - from one machine to another courtesy of Word’s Macro Organizer tool. The walkthrough below explains how to access it and back up your macros to a file you then transfer to your second PC before copying those macros into the normal.dot file on that computer so the macros are accessible from there too.

While this tool is the best way to transfer macros, or other individual elements of your normal.dot file (just select the appropriate tab to transfer styles, toolbars and autotext entries in exactly the same way), if you’re migrating to another PC you may wish to take all your settings with you. If you have Office 2000 or later you can use the Save My Settings Wizard to back up all your Office customisations - including the normal.dot template - and then use the same wizard on your new computer to restore them to the version of Office installed there.

Office XP and 2003 users will find the tool installed with Office -access it from the Microsoft Office Tools menu on the Start -> All Programs menu; Office 2000 users need to download it from here. It’s called the Microsoft Office 2000 Profile Wizard here.
