You have installed AutoCAD Mechanical 2012 and SketchBook Designer 2012 on your machine, for instance, from the Product Design Suite media.
In AutoCAD Mechanical you notice that, selecting some entities, the grips don’t display
Even if the option for display them is selected.
The problem is due to SketchBook Designer for AutoCAD 2012 AddOn.
Our development is working for fixing the problem.
In the meantime, in order to display correctly the grips, you need to start Mechanical without loading the SketchBook Designer AddOn.
For doing this, follow the procedure below.
- Close AutoCAD Mechanical 2012
- Browse under the folder C:\Program Files\Autodesk\ApplicationPlugins and locate the folder named SketchBook Designer.bundle.
- Rename the folder, for instance, as SketchBook Designer.bundle_unload
- Restart AutoCAD Mechanical 2012.
After that, the grips display correctly and the SketchBook Designer AddOn is unloaded.
If you want to load the AddOn again, restore the original folder name SketchBook Designer.bundle and restart Mechanical 2012.
Of course, the grips display problem will be back as well.
