Lost your Block Authoring Palettes?

Yesterday one of our more advanced AutoCAD users had a peculiar problem. When using the Block Editor to edit dynamic blocks, he was not seeing the usual block authoring palettes (these are the tool palettes containing actions, parameters etc.) Instead he was seeing only the regular office tool palettes. So he was unable to create dynamic blocks.

Well, after a bit of messing around, I found that the path in Options/Files/Authoring Palette File Locations had been fiddled with to include one of the office palettes. I’m not sure how this happened, but I know that one of our CAD “gurus” has been playing with tool palettes. Anyhow, removing this stray entry fixed the problem.
