Q - question

Cannot save XXX.DWG command in progress

A - answer Command in progress can't save

You may have an add-on application running, a running command in another AutoCAD MDE document/window, or not enough free memory.

Try to close DesignCenter window and switch SHADEMODE to standard wireframe mode. Also may be caused by extensive use of 3DOrbit.

Try to type the SAVE command on the command line and close AutoCAD.
