  • Q: When I try to print my title block drawing to a network printer, I get the following error messages:

"Start Doc 1722 Status 1"
"Start page Error 6 Status 1"
"End page Error 81 Status 1"

  • A: There is not enough room on your C drive.  You need to increase your system resources. 


  • Q:  When I launch CADVANCE I get the message "CAD.FNT not found, unable to continue."  
  • A:  Copy CAD.FNT into the root CADVANCE program folder on the system giving the error message.


  • Q:  Colors in View / Layers / Setup are displaying in low resolution.
  • A:  Your monitor is probably set to 256 colors, so you are going to see some dithering.  CADVANCE uses a color palette of 256 colors, but its color scheme is slightly different than that of Windows software. If your monitor is not able to display certain colors in CADVANCE, select Start / Settings / Control Panel / Display and click the Setting tab and set your monitor to at least 16-bit color.
