AutoCAD Civil 3D 2014 Hotfix 1

Autodesk has released a Hotfix 1 for Civil 3D 2014.  The issues that are resolved are as follows:

Corridor Design

  • Importing a subassembly to a tool palette when the tool palette is closed no longer causes the application to close unexpectedly.
  • Closing a drawing while the Corridor Section Editor is open in another drawing no longer causes an error.
  • Attaching a subassembly to a LinkToMark point no longer causes the application to close unexpectedly.
  • Importing a subassembly from a file location with a long path no longer causes the application to close unexpectedly.
  • The CreateBestFitAlignment/Profile command no longer causes the application to close unexpectedly when more than one drawing is open.

Feature Lines

  • An issue that caused the application to close unexpectedly when creating feature lines from objects has been resolved.

General/Other

  • An issue that caused an error when opening a drawing has been resolved.
  • Stability when adding or editing a point style has been improved.
  • The stability of the ExportToAutocad command has been improved.
  • An issue that caused instability on systems that do not have BIOS serial number information has been resolved.
  • Stability when opening a drawing has been improved.

Parcels

  • An issue that caused an error when modifying or deleting a parcel segment line has been resolved.
  • The stability of the Mapcheck command has been improved.

Pressure Networks

  • An error no longer occurs when running the FollowSurfaceINPV command on a pressure network when there is a pipe crossing a surface gap.
  • Importing multiple content files in the Content Catalog Editor no longer causes the application to close unexpectedly.

Profiles

  • An issue that caused the application to close unexpectedly while using the profile layout tool bar has been resolved.

Surface

  • An issue that caused an error when switching between layouts with the level of detail display enabled has been resolved.
  • Adding, deleting, and re-adding a point file to a surface definition no longer causes the application to close unexpectedly.
  • Surface analysis data is now retained as expected after rebuilding the surface.

Survey

  • The stability of the ImportSurveyData command has been improved.
  • The stability of the ImportFieldbook command has been improved.

Controlling the Text Height in a Point Table

Autodesk has a solution for controlling the text height in a point table.  You might have noticed that if you change the text height, you don’t get the desired result.  That’s because you need to change the table size instead, NOT the text height.
