Print Preview Switcheroo

Post by DaveR » Tue Sep 01, 2015 9:13 am

Using MSCAD 2014:

I usually have 2-4 separate MSCAD program windows open at a time. I access them from the Windows taskbar. I find it easy to switch between drawings this way.

So, if I'm ready to print Drawing#1 from paperspace I will hit "Select Print Area" and sometimes I will instantly get switched to Drawing#2 or any other drawing I happen to have open. I will have to go to the taskbar, find Drawing#1 and switch back to it to select my print area. This also happens sometimes when I hit "Print Preview".

This does not happen every time and I haven't been able to find a pattern as to when it occurs and when it doesn't. I don't have anything selected or on-the-go in the other drawings. They're just sitting (usually in model space) in my taskbar.

Any idea how to prevent this?
