That is correct, you must pick a file, any file, in the folder you want to search through.
The file dialog will not close until you do that, unless you hit cancel.

Thanks guys for the suggestions.
I have tried both ideas however it hasn't solved my particular issue.
I'll keep looking into it and see if I can find out what warrants this behaviour and report back.
Any other suggestions…
If the purpose of renaming is for conversioning, then I would recommend looking at using ETRANSMIT as an alternative approach. With this method you would use Etransmit at key project stages (Concept, Tender, Construction, Asbuilt) to capture a copy …
The attached LISP will allow you to rename layers based on search string and replacement string
Rename can be either:
* An exact match of the search string with the layer name
* A partial match of the search string with the layer name

Have you checked with V20? Sounds like a bug that has now been fixed. See SR 90685 in the release notes. There are a number of other fixes related to multileaders in the new release too.

Your issue could be due to ORTHOMODE being on. This was fixed for V20.1.06
ORTHOMODE no longer has a delirious effect on the BMINSERT command.

If you are working with large files, such as several buildings on a site, then making using of xrefs will be of benefit. It also allows multiple people to work on the same project.
You can use BIMCLASSIFY to classify your xrefs. That way they will …
@RoatanBill This previous Forum post may be useful

Try the Components Panel (COMPONENTSPANELOPEN). You may need to check the COMPONENTSPATH if you don't see the BIM components listed.

Currently COPY of a hole only works correctly if done on the same solid body. In you case it looks like you're copying to another solid.
Workaround in this case is to force an update. You can do this with BMUPDATE, when it asks you to select object…
This capability is built-in to the DIMSTYLE. Simply:
1. Turn DIMALT on.
2. Check DIMALTF is the correct conversion factor for your target units.
Attach an example with the drawing created in mm. Dimensions display both units.

The LISP allows you to toggle the visibility of the elements of the north arrow.
The AssemblyTree.lsp was provided to me from a Bricsys SR. It allows you to retrieve the assembly tree of an assembly.
Perhaps try using the MANIPULATOR . To display the manipulator, do a long left button press on your selected 3D solid. If you hover over the cone arrows at the end of the axis you will see mirror planes appear. Pressing CTRL, then the picking the de…
