Autocad 2013, decals, and automatic view switching

Does anyone know what setting to change in Autocad 2013 to prevent the following?

Attaching a decal, I generally work in one of the isometric views because you can see all 3 points needed to place the decal: Lower Left Corner, Upper Left Corner, Lower Right Corner - right?

After I select the Lower Right Corner, AutoCAD switches to the face-on view corresponding to the orientation of the decal (for example front view if it was applied to the front face of the solid), then after I "accept" the placement of the decal, AutoCAD switches to Top View.

Nothing like this happened in AutoCAD 2010.  I'm guessing this isn't caused by Accurender because it also happens intermittently when modeling.

Anyway, any insight would be most appreciated.  I apply a lot of decals.

Thanks,

Ron Eddy

Probably you are clicking on the view cube or wheel without knowing an thus changing to the view/ face you click on.

It sounds like you have dynamic UCS turned on.

It's a hateful thing. Turn it off.

Set UCSFOLLOW to 0.

UCSFOLLOW it was!  A system variable carried in the drawing.

Thank You SO much!  It was driving me insane!

You're welcome! That variable is just as annoying as the dynamic UCS.

"Those are all exceptional work, Peter! Congratulations!On this one only: bricks look big to me, but maybe I am wrong. Also some areas in shadow look still a bit noisy."

"1-  On the Rendering Tab there is a popdown called Destination.  The option is called something like "Local Out of Process".  2-  No, installation will require admin access."

"Yep-- the groundplane in ArStudio should be turned on in that case-- but you will get a rectangle which may need to be sized.  If it's not turning on, that's probably a bug."

"Not to worry. I've just seen that ArStudio has its own version of a ground plane. It just doesn't translate the old nXt one."

"Sorry-- just got back into town last night.  Infinite objects aren't supported in ArStudio-- so yes-- the ground plane has to be represented by a finite object, in this case a rectangle.  You don't have to use mine, you can use…"
