Known Issues by CAD Version

Here is a list of problems our tech support team has encountered with specific year versions of AutoCAD – along with their solutions.



  • CAD freezes when you use a Multileader (MLeader) label tool.
  • CAD freezes when editing multiline text (Mtext), or running the MTEXT command.


Both of these issues are the result of two components having been incorrectly flagged as already installed during F/X CAD 2022 installations and, as such, being skipped during installation.


If you experience either of these issues while using F/X CAD 2022, here's the solution.

Note that we've updated the F/X CAD 2022 installer to correct this issue, so future installations should not have this problem.



  • (F/X CAD 2020 users) License checkout timed out. What do you want to do?: Follow our steps to change your F/X CAD license type.
  • Installation incomplete. Some products failed to install. (F/X CAD or AutoCAD) 2020 did not install (error code: 1603) when installing F/X CAD or AutoCAD 2020: Solution.



  • Background mask of items such as irrigation heads comes in a the top, above the text, or other issues with draw order: Run the 2019.1 update.
  • The name of an Xref reverts from uppercase to lowercase after the file has been renamed in Windows Explorer: Official Autodesk solution



The following are all issues that were resolved in the first AutoCAD 2018 update:

  • Land F/X can’t create schedules or labels through an Xref (broken data link through an xref).
  • Occasional crashes after using the PDFCLIP command
  • Occasional crashes when right clicking the DWG from the Start tab
  • Occasional crashes when saving to the AutoCAD 2004 DWG format or earlier
  • Product no longer hangs on Windows 10 when copying objects between 2018 and 2017 versions
  • Crossing window and fence selection can select objects that are not on the current UCS XY plane
  • Digital Signature Warning dialog box does not display on every save or autosave operation
  • Plot preview performance improved on some DWGs

To resolve any of the issues listed above, install the update using the Autodesk desktop app.
