  1. Hello Everyone, Been looking through lee mac's website for helpful lisp routines for work and found this copy2layouts lisp routine he created. When I start the command, it doesn't seem to select any objects I have within the layout for me to copy. Instead, it only selects object in the model space. Can anyone help me with this? And if Lee Mac see this, BIG FAN! Copy2LayoutsV1-1.lsp © 2020 Lee Mac DarkLightVLIDE ;;-----------------------=={ Copy to Layouts }==------------------------;; ;; ;;
  2. Hi Guys, i have this problem. in my work, i need to use layers for the design, and sometimes i copy objects from other drawings, when i paste the objects in current drawing, they are pasted in their original layer, and then i need to change the layers of all the pasted objects to the current (active) layer. well, it doesn't sound very handful, but when i need to copy and paste a lot of them, it is quite a work to do. so, does anyone have a lisp routine that can do this; when i do the paste operation, it automatically changes the layer of the objects in clipboard into the current
  3. Hello everyone. I am working with a code to copy object (s) and paste with rotation using the same base point as the axis of rotation. What I can't do is create a while cycle to be able to make multiple copies and rotate. I could only do it once. If someone helps me a little I would be very grateful. (defun c:cr (/ ss p1 p2 p3) (setq ss (ssget)) (command "copy" ss "" "0" "0") (setq p1 (getpoint "\n base Point: ")) (setq p2 (getpoint "\n destination point: ")) (command "move" ss "" p1 p2) (setq p3 (getpoint "\n reference point: ")) (command "rotate" ss
  4. Yesterday by AutoCAD crashed and since then I have been experiencing a number of issues with all of my existing dwg files and any new files I create. The prob is that I am unable to select items (objects/text/lines) before I select the commands. For instance I am unable to select a line and then press delete. I am also unable to select a viewport to lock and unable to select text to edit. I am also unable to copy with basepoint, or copy things in to a new drawing file. However I can delete / move as long as I select the command prior to selecting the item. Has anyone got any solution
  5. Hi Guys, New to CAD Tutor. I came here looking for a lisp routine to do multiple copies at varying distances from a point relative to the last copy point. I found Lee Mac's Lisp Routine on an old post but I am having trouble with it. I am using AutoCAD 2018. (defun c:copyrel ( / b i l o p q s ) (if (and (setq s (ssget "_:L")) (setq p (getpoint "\nSpecify Base Point: ")) (setq b (vlax-3D-point (trans p 1 0))) ) (progn (repeat (setq i (sslength s)) (setq l (cons (vlax-ename->vla-object (ssname s (
  6. Hello, I'm very new to LISP and wanted a hand with writing a simple script to copy a line and change the layer to a specific layer. It going from Layer "50" to "TRAV" and I wanted this changed line copied on to of itself. I have a pretty good understanding of TCL as I have written in that when using Surpac but I'm at a new job now and trying to educate myself with a few basic but useful scripts. Any help will be great.
  7. I have a lisp that copies everything inside a circle, but I wish I can copy everything inside a closed polyline. Can you help me editing this code? (defun c:det (/ osm blip ent alist cir1 pt1 raio1 cir2 pt2 raio2 fator ss pt) (setq p1 (getpoint "\nSelecione o raio do círculo de ampliação:")) (command "CIRCLE" p1 pause "") (command "undo" "be") (setq osm (getvar "osmode")) (setq blip (getvar "blipmode")) (setvar "blipmode" 0) (setvar "osmode" 0) (setvar "cmdecho" 1) (while (not cir1) (setq ent (car (entsel "\nSelecione o círuculo a ampliar: "))) (if (and ent (setq alist (
  8. I want to copy/paste some items from one job into another job. I have reverted everything to layer 0 and there is no text at all in the items I am copying. When I bring it into the other drawing, all the text styles have come with it, which I do not want. I have tried to run 'purge' to get rid of them, and it doesn't work. If I try to deleter any of the text styles, it says they are in use (which they are not, since the new drawing has no text in it yet.... I am creating a new template and it is 100% devoid of text so far). What am I doing wrong?
  9. Hi All, I'm looking to see if there is a Lisp out there that as you copy a block in a drawing the first attribute with change in increments of 1 I.e. P1 P2 P3 Thickness " " " " Material " " " " (1) " " " " P1 Would be the attribute that changes every time it gets copied. Thanks Brain
  10. Hi All, As a newbie to AUTOLisp, I am trying to accomplish the following with a script/function, however I still haven't found much useful information 1. While looping through the files in the directory, check if each drawing has any xrefs attached. 2. If yes, then copy all objects from all attached xrefs to the current drawing, and detach them. If no, skip the the next drawing. (If there are xref objects that cannot be copied to the drawing (such as jpgs), then leave them as they are). 3. Save the drawing with the same file name in another folder. I know this sounds like asking
  11. I am so close to getting this code to perform but need some final touches and manipulaton.. Currently it offsets all text on a specific layer and copy's and moves it up "0.15" which is what we already have doing with another layer we use in our drawings. (we use this to add specific descriptions above a labeled point.) What I am looking for now is to change the code so that instead of offseting/copying/moving every string of text on DEFICIENCY layer within the drawing, I would like for it to prompt me which individual string of text I would like to offset - i.e. ("\nSelect Text to Offset:
  12. Just came across this neat little LISP routine. Works perfect for me and my guys because we insulated pipe and this eliminates having to click click click click to constantly offset lines both ways. (defun C:OFF2 (/ pickEnt pickObj offDist) (vl-load-com) (setvar "ErrNo" 0) (while (and (not (setq pickEnt (entsel))) (/= 52 (getvar "ErrNo")))) (cond ((and pickEnt (setq pickObj (vlax-EName->vla-Object (car pickEnt))) (progn (initget 6) (setq offDist (getdist "\nSpecify offset distance: ")))) (vla-Offset pickObj offDist) (vla-Offset
  13. Hello all, Could anyone tell me how to alter this code? It asks to pick a value then whether to apply it once or multiple times. In multiple mode, you still only choose one at a time. I would like to be able to apply to multiple objects at once, using a selection box. Thanks -Nobull ;;;;Realization {Smirnoff} ;;; TTCM - Text to Text copy whith Matchprop.

  14. When copying a large amount of obects (i.e. moving a set of points obtained from a DXF file for a Feature & Level), the crosshair disappears and the screen appears frozen until I click again. The only problem is when I click, the objects I copy past in a place where I don't necessarily want them to (The place is determined by where my crosshair is, which is hidden on my screen). Is there a fix for this? I can right click to bring up *invalid move* which then lets me see my crosshair, but this gets annoying. ~ Using AutoCAD 2014. This also happens on Civil 3D 2010, which I use for contouri
  15. Is there any possible way to do that? I had a .dwg with a layer with contours and i deleted it (my fault) .. I have this layer in another .dwg . Is there any way to transfer it in the other drawing file? Thanks in advance!
  16. Hi, I'm looking for a way to copy only circles (but several of them) from the model space to paper space. I found a utility that does it but there are few limitation that need to be resolved. Can the viewport scale be counted as a part of the routine so that the object seen from the layout space is exactly copied as is (should not come 1:1 if the viewport scale is 1:2) and at the exact same location. I want to copy only circles of the balloon which is actually an attribute block so something like ncopy (which actually extracts only selected entity out of the whole block). This

    In the never-ending search for lisps, functions and commands to make life easier, efficient and productive, I have a suggestion. Your website has an amazing amount of information. For lisps in particular, and maybe other areas, have categories for users to put their information into. If someone was searching for a particular copy command, they could choose that category and browse the available. It seems the search function brings about many other things not pertaining to the keyword. Thanks for the help and keep up the good work, Nobull84
  18. Newbie to forum but not to CAD. I need a copy lisp that will add the entered dimension accumulatively. Example: Command; copy, pick object(s), pick base point, enter displacement, "10 foot", first click copies in a direction at ten foot, then twenty, thirty, forty, etc.... I would like to be able to do this without having to snap to the last copied object (as the standard copy command would be used for). The type of work I do, the drawings can be very busy and snaps can move too easily. The other reason is for speed. Hopefully I have been clear in what I need. Thanks for the help
  19. we switched from civil 3d 2012 to 2014 and since we switched my copyclip (ctrlv or right click ) will work for the first few times then after that it will say "duplicate definition of block XX ignored Substituting [simplex.shx] for [TB.shx]. Substituting [simplex.shx] for [GB-LD.SHX]. Substituting [simplex.shx] for [TC-ROMND.SHX]. this happens when pasting the same item in that ive already pasted in 2-3 layouts and once this starts happening i cant copy paste at all untill i shutdown autocad and reset my computer (which only works like 30% of the time) also this would happen regardle
  20. Hello everyone, I just made a 3D model with ACAD 2011. fixed_pedestal.dwg It has chamfers and fillets. When i copy the 3D model, the copy doesn't have any chamfers or fillets . Anyone knows why? greetings, SB

    Copy and Pasting

    Hi, I have a project for school that I am trying to complete at home, but realized that I don't have the proper SUD file at home. Is there any way I could copy and paste the already dimensioned object into the new SUD later? Please help a.s.a.p. Thank you so much, Tori
  22. I have a .lsp file that mostly creates keyboard shortcuts for basic commands. My copy mode is set to default to "multiple" - and if I type "copy", it is indeed multiple. However, if I use my shortcut (just the "c" key), it is not. Here's the code: (defun c:c() (command "copy")) I don't think it gets much simpler than that... why would it not operate the same way as "copy"? Confused.
  23. I work with AutoCad Electrical. I've been using an amazing Lisp file by Alan J. Thompson (who is a frequent contributor) call Match Attributes Values and it has been a enormous time saver. However, with AutoCad Electrical, the electrical blocks called "components" have an attribute called Tag1 that gives the component its uniqueness. It is this (and only this) attribute that I DON'T want to change when I copy all attributes between these blocks. I attached the wonderful MAV code. (I hopes that's okay.) Can someone help me in modifying the code that would change all attributes ex
  24. Hi, i was wondering if someone had a lisp that would copy object by windowing and then change to a different layer but be over the top of the original objects. i need to copy a set of lines inplace and change to a different layer. thanks, Brian
  25. Hi All, Here is what i'm looking for a lisp routine that when i copy rectanlges that are spaced 1/2" or so a part that when i place the copy back into the drawing it spreads them apart 24" or so. thanks, Brian
