But I assumed that if you have autosave setup and had a CTD, then that would trigger an autorecovery. I guess what I'm trying to do is determine whether autorecovery is working or not. The post called "What ever happened to autorecover" got me thinking that in the past when SW would CTD, I would get a message upon restarting SW, asking if I wanted to try to autorecover the last part/assembly, and I haven't seen that message in awhile. And so I thought that maybe they (SW) incorporated it into the autosave feature.
I haven't found any reference to autorecover anywhere in SW, help files or otherwise.
The auto recover option automatically saves information about your active part, assembly, or drawing document so you do not lose your work in case of a system crash. To set this option, click Tools, Options. On the System Options tab, click Backups and select Save auto recover info every changes. Specify the number of changes that should occur before information is automatically saved.
So, I guess my assumtions are right. Now all I need is a way to crash SW.
I just looked to in my file where I keep all my SPR info, and I had submitted it with another one (Property Manager does not expand Add Relations box when sketching line with single command per pick enabled) and i got an SPR for the Add Relations box, but edit expolode had already been issued (yours).
BUT, it must be fixed in SP01RC, because I can't get it to crash. I can't believe I complaining about NOT being able to crash, John McElenny is probably pulling his hair out right now.
Hey, Just plug in that old video card laying on the shelf collecting dust. You know the one that always helped your SWX CTD until you upgraded. It should cause you to CTD real well when you just try to rotate your assembly with a section veiw setup.
