    Default Steal from Drawing

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Generalising on an idea I've had for a while, I offer this program to allow you to import (humourously: 'steal') items from another drawing into the current drawing.

    Steal

    Upon running the program the user is prompted for a selection of a drawing to steal from, and, upon selection, a dialog appears detailing items available for import. The user may choose multiple items from a list of...
    • Blocks
    • Layers
    • Linetypes
    • Dimension Styles
    • Text Styles
    • Table Styles
    • MLeader Styles
    • MLine Styles
    • Layouts
    • Page Setups
    • User Coordinate Systems
    • Views
    • Groups
    • Layer States
    • Scales
    • Materials
    • Viewports
    • Drawing Properties
    • Custom Properties
    ...should these collections contain any items which aren't already present in the current drawing.

    Dialog Preview


    A full description of the program and the latest version can be found here.

    Enjoy!

    With Mathematics there is the possibility of perfect rigour, so why settle for less?

    Thanks Lee, especially useful for Mleaders and Mlines since they aren't available through Design Center.
    How about Civil 3D styles next?

    How about layouts and page setups, pen widths and colors and all that?
