Error when trying to save

Postby cbunker » Fri Feb 18, 2005 4:22 am

I'm trying to insert portions of various third-party drawings into a master drawing of my own. Before I insert anything extra, my drawing is fine - I can save it with no problems. However, if I insert the third-party drawings as PARTs, or if I use the copy to clipboard/paste from clipboard functions, and try to save, I get an error that simply says

Error saving drawing!
BLOCKS

All I can do is hit OK. I don't see a drawing externally referenced named BLOCKS, nor do I see a layer with that name, so I'm not sure where it is coming from.

Obviously, I'm not able to save the drawing - any suggestions?

PURGE

Try running the command PURGE and purge out all of the parts listed in the drawing. Sometimes the extra parts can cause a problem when saving to DWG format.

Thanks Glen, I'll give that a shot. In the meantime, I've found that I can XREF the drawings instead without the problem occurring, which I think will give me a viable workaround.
