My Edit/Paste has stopped
working. It is grayed out.
A: This is because you installed
CADVANCE 99 in a directory
other than the default directory. This requires a Registry FIX. Here is the process:
A) Close all CADVANCE.
Go to Windows "Start" menu and
B) In the "Open" box, type this: regedit
C) Click "OK." You'll enter the Registry Editor
window. You'll see a
folder that says HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT.
D) Click on the "+" to the left of HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT. Many
folders are within. Scroll down a very long way until you see FIT.CADVANCE.99.
E) With right mouse button, click on FIT.CADVANCE.99. Choose Delete.
You'll be asked "Are you sure you want to delete this key?" answer
F) Re-boot your computer. Then run CADVANCE. Your Copy/Paste
should now work.
Please keep this information, in case you ever need to re-install your CADVANCE

- A: If
you are using v2000, press [Ctrl][V] for the
paste function instead of using Edit /
Paste. If you are using v99, you will
need to do the same as for v2000, or you will
need to clean the registry as shown below.

OK. You will enter the Registry Editor
- Edit / Find,
to find the string "DATATRAN.DLL"
- For every
instance of DATATRAN.DLL found by the
Registry, you need to EDIT the string value
by double-clicking the item where the "ab"
icon is displayed. Edit each string
containing "DATATRAN.DLL" so that
it conforms to the actual CADVANCE 99
I've upgraded from version 8 or earlier. If I enter
"Edit/Properties", none of the boxes are check-marked. Why is this?
In Versions 99 and 99.5, all of the "Modify" boxes have been
turned off. Check-marking them will make those boxes check-marked for your
current drawing session.
Q: A lot of my drawings,
when I open them, can't be Previewed. Why not?
A: When you had saved the drawing, you didn't select "Save
Or, if the drawing was created in a version of CADVANCE earlier than v8, there WAS NO preview option. See
CADVANCE Manual and "Help"
menu inside v99.
is my drawing file taking up so much disk
space? It is unreasonably large.
try one or more of the following methods to
resolve this problem.
- Use File / Pack
to pack the drawing.
- Get rid of any
embedded or linked OLE2 objects, which can be
found by an Object properties selection.
Type "o,o" on the keyboard for
Object selection. In the lower left of
the dialog box, click on the box for
"Object Type" and then select all
object types EXCEPT for "Assoc
Object". Then cut and paste to a
new drawing window. This is a way to
determine OLE2 objects. If the OLE2
objects are bitmap images, try File / Open /
*.BMP to bring them into the drawing, or open
the bitmap image file and copy and "Paste
Special" into CADVANCE as
whether any area texturing is taking up too
much disk space, and re-texture the area.
