    button image properties

    When installing Acad 14 or 2001, I always use acad.mnc, acad.mnr and acad.mns saved from a previous install so that I can have my custom toolbar install without having to rebuild it. However I will still have to edit some of the button images (like the ones with the smiley faces) to what I want. What file in the support directory contains these edited button images so I may avoid having to rebuild them, can anybody tell me?

    I have come across this before when copying the .mn* files and button icons to another machine.

    It was a problem with the NAMES of the icons not the location, especially if you have given them your own name rather than the Acad generated one.
    As you say when you start Autocad after copying the mn* files and button icons you often get smiley faces insted of the image.

    The only way I found to correct this is to edit the button in Autocad and reload the the image back in.

    PS. This applies to the older Autocad versions that use the drop down menus and .mn* files; not to 2006+ that use the CUI.
