    Default Electrial Project Settings

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Is it possible when Activating a project in Autocad Electrical to run a customized script or macro? Specifically, it would be nice to set the "DefaultFormatForSave" variable to the proper customer specified value.

    Thanks in advance

    It may be easier to look at creating a profile so when you start autocad everything is preset, set everything up ready to go, save a profile. Make a copy of your Desktop autocad icon then edit its properties start with name, look for /p in the startup line and make it your profile /p My20004save

    Otherwise just make a simple script and run.

    Batch Process Drawings > select project or Active drawing >
    OK.
    Done

    Script can run a LISP file, load the LISP en run the lisp in the script.
