Q - question

"Local server is loading" when inserting a block in AutoCAD LT.

A - answer When trying to insert a block from the library, the BLOCKS palette in AutoCADu LT, the palette just displays the message Local server is loading C:\path\file.DWG (Lokaler Server wird geladen), but the block is not inserted. The palette also does not show block thumbnails (previews) - the cells are empty.

Perform Reset of the AutoCADu LT settings (see "Reset to Defaults" in the Start menu in Windows).

If the problem returns, use an alternative method for block insertion, e.g. the commands CLASSICINSERT or the DesignCenter (ADCENTER). Apply the latest updates for your AutoCAD LT.
