Tip of the Day

Salvage a corrupted drawing

So, you opened a drawing only to find it has been corrupted. You've tried Recover but to no avail. Now what?

As a last resort, open a new drawing and then insert the corrupted drawing into the new one (InsertBlock…). The insertion will only bring in the main (Model Space) components of the corrupted drawing; this trick does not recover any paper space objects. Hey, I didn't promise a miracle but it sure beats losing the drawing altogether now, doesn't it?.
