I have a crap load of smoke detectors on a floor plan, each smoke detector needs to be assigned a unique number. I have in front of me a blueprint which is red-lined to indicate the unique numbers given to all the smokes.
Is there a way to create a label and paste it on the smoke detector and assigning it the right number, rather than copying text and then going thru and editing each one?
The smoke detectors are numbered 68-127 in numerical order...
just curious if there was a faster way to do this, rather than me sitting here copying text to all the smokes, and then editing each one.
well to answer your first question: refer to my profile or under my name on the left hand of your screen.Originally Posted by Galingula

PSD as in photoshop?
here's a quick pic of it:

Yes it can be done using Lisp. Maybe you could move this post over to the Lisp forum?? I know what function to use, but i'd have to mess with it to get it right. basically it would be something like (setq cnt (1+ cnt)) so that everytime you copied the text it would add the number by one, so you wouldn't have to go back and re-number - that is of course if it does count by one. I'm sure I could figure it out, but I don't have time right now so unless somebody does it for ya, i'll try and help ya tomorrow.
the thing is, i believe i have until the end of this week to have this job done, but for future reference, i'll be doing this a lot, so a lips wouldn't hurt... in fact, i need to work on lisp(ing) creating and using b/c i'm sure i could simplify my life by a whole lot.
Property set definition.
In ADT, don't know about plain AutoCAD, you can attach them to objects and they'll hold information that can be reported in a schedule or with a tag.
As an example, I can attach a PSD to a space, and it will KNOW its room name and number. When I tag it, the tag automatically shows the Room Name and #, and if I schedule the spaces, the same info will be reported.

No scheduling features in Plain Jane? (imagine a "shocked" smiley HERE)
