  1. Hi all, I'm trying to set up a button in my ribbon for a simple process I very regularly perform in AutoCAD 2010 LT. basically I want to: 1. Select everything in the model view (through an already active viewport) 2. Erase it all 3. Purge everything 4. Paste in whatever is in the clipboard memory (previously copied from a different drawing) and locate it at 0,0 coords. 5. Zoom Extents 6. Zoom out to 97% The macro below works perfectly fine as long as there were originally objects in model space to start with, but if I try this with a new file that has no model space object
  2. I need a paticular linetype made, i have looked everywhere and have tried making my own but i am terrible. If anyone can do it and send me .lin file with it, i would be hugely grateful
  3. Sorry if this is a repost, although I doubt it. Can't hurt. As part of our Confuse-a-CAD-Monkey policy, we change our standards on every project. We had a custom linetype for silt fence years ago, which looked something like this: Unfortunately, every one of those pointy bits had to be drawn by hand, or at least copied, along an erratic border. I came up with a dynamic block (my first), but it was kinda clunky. Then we switched to a different linetype. Now we've switched back. I came up with a custom shape and put it in a complex linetype. If anyone wants it, here's the shape
  4. Does everyone know how to insert xrefs with other ucs than world. The host drawing ucs must be in world. The different x-refs are made with different ucs according to local coordinates. In the host drawing, the xrefs must be placed correctly according to global coordinate (world). (The xrefs are all surveys of different spaces all with marked fixpoints according to the physical global coordinates.) please help...

    Custom Standards!

    Hello everyone, this is my firs post, so greetings. I have been given the task from my director to produce a concept for the following: when a member of staff opens AutoCAD (2011) there is an interface that pops up that has two buttons. The first being A3 and A4. The idea is that when each of these is clicked, a new template is opened ready for them to use, that has out title block and layers etc all set up. Does anyone know where I should start with reference to custom interfaces on AutoCAD startup? Thank you in advance for your help!
  6. I'm running Autocad 2011 on MAC (dont ask why, its just needs to be done..) and now I'm struggling getting all my old keyboard shortcuts from PC setup up again. Does anyone know how to include the SHIFT key when editing/customizing the command aliases?? ie, i want SHIFT+V to = MOVE So in the Command Alias text file, Im guessing it should look something like this? SHIFT+V, *MOVE But that doesnt work. I really really want to stick with this format, and not need to include other control keys, ie CTRL+SHIFT. Any info or help would be great! Cheers, Matt

    Custom Tool Palettes

    Hello Everyone, I am new here and have a new question for you guys. Forgive me if this has already been asked. We have some old timers at the company who have extensive tool palettes with all kinds of custom goodies that they want to distribute to everyone else in the company, or atleast make them available on the network drive. I have already found out how to export and import profiles to make my station's setup look like theirs. I have also exported custom tool palettes but the blocks that are the meat of the palettes aren't there. I get the error "Source drawing "C:\BLOCKS\P&

    Tip of the Day

    I've posted an earlier version of this in the past, but decided to update the code and provide a proper write-up. Designed as a bit of fun, the program will allow you to create your own custom Tip of the Day messages, which will be randomly selected and displayed once each day. Whether it's used to constructively provide help for AutoCAD users, or merely provide a funny message for each day - I leave it up to you Have fun with it! Lee Code is available here - if you have any questions about how to set it up, let me know.
  9. I'm building a custom lowrider bike which ill later post and i already have all of it done but i need to build a chain for it and i don't know how. and i also need help with making twisted bars for the handle bars. if you can help that would be awesome!
  10. Swales have always been finicky to draw with the proper annotation and it seems to be a common inquiry of forum users to find a code string that creates one automatically. I got sick of waiting and searching so I developed a code string that draws/repeats the squiggly line and triangle arrow annotation for me to make things faster and easier. It works (kind of) but it draws a continuous line over the swale symbols almost like a strike-through in MS Word (see attached image). I wouldn't mind it so much if it was a standard centreline symbol but my preference is for the "line" type to just be th
  11. Hello community, it's been a few weeks with no activity whatsoever on the forum, but I'm back for a with a good one I've been customizing acad.lin like a maniac for the last couple of days and there's a recurring problem that I can't resolve by myself. I have this line... *EX-DASH,[G] Existing - - EX - - - - EX - - - - EX - - A,.125,-.0625,0.127,-.254,["EX",STANDARD,S=.127,U=0,X=-.127,Y=-.0635],-.2,.125,-.0625,.125,-.0625 The result is similar to... - - EX - - - - EX - - - - EX - - - - EX - - - - EX - - - - EX - - Let's say that the pattern of the line ("- - EX - -",
  12. Hi, I'm familiar with creating hatch patterns using notepad, I have been scouring the web for any examples that meet what I’m looking to do: I'm looking to create a customer hatch pattern where text is defined within the pattern in the same way text is defined within a custom line-type. So far, the only examples I have found show the text being drawn line by line. I don’t know if it is possible to do what I’m looking to do, although I’d be surprised if it can’t be done in some way. Any help would be appreciated even if it's to tell me it can’t be done - as it would save me a lot of time
