AutoCAD, how does the FILEDIA variable work?

Sometimes it can happen, that when opening a file, it seems that AutoCAD has gone crazy and the command bar says:

Enter name of drawing to open <C: \ Program Files ...

Autocad variable filedia fidelia

The problem: it does not show us the browser dialog when using the commands to open or save files. It is because the dialog variable is disabled.

Autocad variable filedia fidelia

It is solved with the command FILEDIA.

Eye!, It's not FIDELIA, like the name of the grandmother of Gijón, but FILEDIA of File Dialog.

We write FILEDIA, then Enter, we write the variable 1. And ready.

Something similar can happen with the commands, and is solved in the same way with the variable CMDDIA.

  1. Thank you very much, I had gone crazy with that fidelia that I almost already knew it.
    Thank you

  2. Okay, that's another way to solve it.
    Unfortunately, you may lose data or settings in other installed programs, depending on when you last saved the system state.

  3. Very good contribution to solve this problem. Another way to correct this problem is to reboot the PC to an earlier point in the system where you did not have this problem and you're done.

  4. talking about variables, they will not manipulate the "pickfirst" and it is the one that makes the most mistakes in the space model

  5. THANK YOU FOR THE HELP, YOU CAN ALREADY RESOLVE IT

  6. Most English commands work in Spanish, with a low hyphen.

    that is: _filedia

  7. Thanks for the contribution was very useful, greetings.

  8. THE COMMAND FILEDIA ALSO SERVES FOR THE SPANISH VERSION BECAUSE I ALREADY APPLY IT AND I DO NOT RESOLVE THE PROBLEM TO OPEN THE FILES, OR IS THERE TO APPLY THE COMMAND IN SPANISH, AND WHAT IS IT? Thank you, if anyone helps me

  9. No idea what may be going on
    And what version of AutoCAD do you have? this did not exist in versions before 2010 I think.

WHAT HAPPENS TO ME A PROBLEM WITH THE DIALOGUE PICTURES IN PARTICULAR THE HATCH, LAYER, AND STYLES OF COTA; DO NOT APPEAR THE DIALOGUE PICTURES, ALREADY DISCONNECT AUTOCAD 3 TIMES AND NOTHING FOLLOWS EQUAL, ALREADY DIED FILEDIA WITH VALUE 1 ENTER AND CONTINUES LIKE THE DIALOGUE PICTURES DO NOT APPEAR. SOMEONE KNOWS HOW TO REPAIR THIS

  15. Jeje, that of the grandmother is a saying of a friend, who did not lack and who literally has his grandmother there in Asturias.

  16. It takes a lot of time in this AutoCAD to remember filedia. A colleague who was the most autocad hours well spent in the company where he worked, teaching me how to put .., sorry to play a joke to another friend told me. What a good time I had with them.
