AutoCAD/lost drawing crosshair


How do you restore the cross hair to my drawing.This only happens when i save a unfinished model. I am using mechanical desktop 6.

Many people have had the same problem.  Most people have not been able to resolve the problem.  A few people have had some good luck by turning off hardware acceleration on their PCs.  Give that a try and let me know how it goes.

I can address all 2-D questions and some 3-D questions. I do programming in AutoLISP if it doesn`t involve solid modeling. I can also address menu customization issues and can help you find answers to questions I can`t answer by taking your question directly to Autodesk via their newsgroups.


I used to do electronic and mechanical design for a flat panel monitor manufacturer, and now I do architectural drafting for an architect. I did and do AutoLISP and menu customization and take pride in making my lisp routines to do the work exactly the way the client likes them done.

I had a routine published in CADENCE magazine (no longer in publication and taken over by CADALYST). Some of my routines are published on my website at
