  1. Hello, I am searching for a lisp that can export the lengths of all selected polylines and export them to either Excel or an AutoCad table. I have found and tested around 20 lisps but so far cannot find the right one. There were only 2 that look promising, maybe they could be modified? One was by Lee Mac and the other Jimmy Bergmark. I can post the 2 Lisp if needed. The lisp would need to have you select multiple polylines and give the total lengths of each polyline in the order that they were selected in. Then the data would either appear on an AutoCad table or Excel. Thanks for any help that can be provided.
  2. hi all, i have drawings that contains stations and waterlines as polyline or spline. (in att. dwg named as ST0, ST1...ST20, and WL0 to WL8) there may be other stations or waterlines such as ST0.5, ST1.5, WL9, WL10... i need a table that shows distance of intersection points from CL. (see att. dwg) is it possible to make this table by lisp? lines.dwg
  3. Hello, I am attempting to put together a LISP that creates a table of cumulative geometric properties of selected objects. I would like to be able to quantify Erosion and Sedimentation Control BMPs by layer for a cost estimation. Controls such as compost filter sock and orange construction fence are polylines, erosion control blanket is hatched, and inlet protection is a block. The controls are all on their own respective layers. The idea is that I would be able to select one occurrence of each of these controls (polyline, hatch, block), have the LISP apply the "select similar" command, and create a table that reports back the length of the polylines by layer, the cumulative area of the hatches by layer, and a count of the blocks by layer. Due to my inexperience with LISP, I am afraid that I am unable to create this app in time for when I need it. It would be greatly appreciated if someone could help out in creating this app. Thank you for your time.
  4. Hi All, I'm very new to these so please be nice! Basically our company cuts heaps of metal panels. We draw each panel, do the cutting lists, nest and optimise them on sheets manually. I'm trying to save some time by creating a block that'll make life a bit easier. So I've currently got a block where you can input the height and width & it automatically adjusts. What I'd like to add is an atrribute? or a tag? where that little box pops up and you can input the height & width in there instead. Additionally I'd like the pop up box to include the panel # which is then shown on the panel (see drawing where I've just added in 'a1', 'a2' etc). Next step would be to include a table that collates the information from all the panels (we often do around 30 panels per order). Currently we manually input all the sizes in to excel. Just to make things more interesting we use metric autocad but are often given dimensions in imperial, so half the time is spent manually converting feet & inches into mm and then drawing the panels in mm. If there's any way to input in imperial and show both metric and imperial on the dimension line that would just be the best thing ever! I might be being a bit greedy with so many requests so if anyone could help with just one of the above it would be very much appreciated. Thankyou trial.dwg
  5. Good Afternoon, I am working on an issue at my company and I hope I can get some help. I work at a metal panel company and I was hoping that I could insert a table that will update due to panel dimensions. What I would really like to see is a table that can give me Length and Width as well as the bends associated with the panel for fastening. What would be amazing is if I could get that table to give me the aforementioned information as well as being able to account for "corner panels", etc. since that is counted as one panel in this instance. Can this all be connected to a panel number? Please let me know if this is unclear. Thank you so much!
  6. Dear all, I need support for an issue with table. I have a table composed by 70 rows and 12 columns, Rows height and columns width has been settled before as preliminary, when table being inserted in the drawing. The scope is to fit the column size to cell contents, with a fixed row height. Of course I don't know, before writing data into the table's cell, if the contents length will be higher than the columns width, so when table will be drawn and updated I would like to adapt the columns width to cell contents. I tried to apply the below code but nothing is changing, I tried after writing the cells contents and before writing the cells contents but result it's the same: if cell's contents it's higher than columns width I have the contents carriage return results. See image below. I Tried also to use the Autoscale2 method but I do not understand how to use nContent parameter, due to it's required as long type variable instead a text as table data cells required. For i = 2 To .Rows - 1 For j = 0 To .Columns - 1 Actable.SetAutoScale i, j, False 'or True Next j Next i RetVal = object.GetAutoScale2(nRow, nCol, nContent) object Type: Table The object this method applies to. nRow Access: Input-only Type: Long The row number of the cell to set. nCol Access: Input-only Type: Long The column number of the cell to set. nContent Access: Input-only Type: Long The content value for the cell. Return Value (RetVal) Type: Boolean True: AutoScale is used for the content with the index at the cell location. False: AutoScale is not used for the content with the index at the cell location.
  7. I have a table in AutoCAD Architecture 2013. If I click in a cell, acad highlights the cell with extremely thick borders, as shown in the image below. I guess this was because of the table line weight settings, so I tried to change the table style, cell style, set different grid line weight for all grid lines, etc. Nothing works. Here is the dwg file. CellHighlight.dwg Thanks for any suggestions!
  8. Hello, I have created a table within AutoCAD. I have written some words in cell "A1", I would like to display the same words in another cell using an equation "=A1". When I type the "=A1" equation the cell displays "####" Is there anyway to make this work? possibly using fields? Thanks
  9. I inserted a pdf file (table) and printed it out. Now that I want to open the file again, the table is gone and its address is shown instead. What is wrong and how can I keep the table as the first time?

    sequential alignment number segments

    Hello, I am trying to find a simple way to number alignment segments sequentially and numerically. an example would be changing L1, C1, L2, C2 to 1,2,3,4. I also need this information to be applied to a table and be dynamic. Any and all help is appreciated. Regards, Phil
  11. Hello, I am trying to figure out a way to get all of my common data (detail numbers, sheet numbers, and when I bubble an item from my BOM) to update easier. The best way I found to do this seems to be using Field. Field works with regular text really well, but I cant figure out how to get the correct data from Mtext or from a table. Meaning, Field pulls all data from Mtext, and only table data from tables (i.e, nothing inserted inside the table, just table height and whatnot). I would like to use a table so that I can copy paste my BOM from excel, and Field reference to the data in that table. If you have an easier solution I would appreciate that too.. Using full Autocad 2017, Mechanical. Also, I tried using Custom Drawing Properties but that maxes out at 10, and I cannot populate it easily from the excel file. I know I can use sheetset for the sheet numbers, but see no way to use it for the BOM.

    table default style

    Hello, I am having issues finding the location to set the default table style for a line/curve table. Any help is appreciated! thanks, phil
  13. Hello all, I am looking for a way to append a remark/comment column at the far right of my alignment table. The desired result would be to have a character, a simple hyphen, in every 'remark' cell and be able to revise it to be a comment specific to the line/curve in that same row. Any and all suggestions are appreciated. Regards, Phil
  14. Hi guys, I wanna know if someone has a Lisp code to convert a simple table to a real table. The drawing shows a simgle table made by lines and texts. Thanks in Advance.

    Curve Table Row Heights

    Hey All, Is there anyway to adjust the row height when making a curve table. i know that it is possible to adjust it when making a regular table but I do not see anywhere in the curve table settings/style to adjust it. I know its based off of the text height but its too much of a gap. Thanks for any and all help. Miller
  16. Hi all, I'm hoping you can help. I require a lisp file that can count the number of blocks in a drawing and calculate the total area of say a polyline that is in each block and plot it in a table format? Can anyone point me in the right direction please? Thanks Peter
  17. Is there a command or a .lsp that converts individual lines within a single MTEXT object into a CAD table with rows and columns? Unfortunately, Excel is not installed locally on my computer, so I cannot do a DATALINK. In Excel, I select and copy the cells to the clipboard. In AutoCAD, I PASTESPEC as text or unicode text. It appears as a single MTEXT. BLOCK LOT NUM AREA BLOCK 1 1 5770.67 BLOCK 1 2 5300.01 BLOCK 1 3 5336.69 BLOCK 1 4 5280.00 BLOCK 1 5 5280.00 BLOCK 1 6 5280.00 BLOCK 1 7 5280.00 BLOCK 1 8 5280.00 How do I convert this into a table in AutoCAD with cells and rows? I do not want to export back to Excel if I can avoid it. Thanks!

    trouble with table

    Hello, At the request of a co-worker I am trying to generate a table with the station number and % grade of the lane subassembly at that station. Any help is appreciated. Additionally, they want it to be a live, dynamic table in the drawing, not a toolbox report dropped into excel. Thanks! Phil
  19. Hi everyone, Setup; OS: Win 7 Pro X64 Product: AutoCAD 2015 Electrical CPU: i7 Graphics: AMD FirePro M6100 FireGL V Ram: 16GB Problem; I've created a datalink table to an Excel spreadsheet, and I'm only having issues with tables that required a break (table wrapping). Once I break the table and setup text properties; text height, alignment, headers, cell widths. Everything looks okay until I close and open the drawing. The first half of the table remembers the settings, but the second half always reverts back to .5 text height and top center alignment (headers and cell width are still in place on the 2nd part of the table) Solutions I've tried; I've tried to do the formatting before I break the table, I've tried after its broken. I right clicked on the tables and "Remove All Property Overrides" which makes the text all crazy, so I setup text properties, qsave and close. once I open the drawing text height and alignment changes again. If I try to "Remove All Property Overrides" the text doesn't change, so I think that function worked correctly. Summary; How can I get the 2nd half of the datalinked table to remember all property settings? I'm out of ideas Does anyone have some other solutions to try? Thanks for your time. -DataLinkQ
  20. Lately I've been working on electrical panel schedules in both excel and CAD. The company I work for is pretty particular about how they set up the schedules regarding colors and fonts, so they have a table style template set up. This works great, but I still have to pull up the adcenter and pull the style from a previous project to import. Is there any way to save it to my list of styles permanently so that I don't have to find it every time? If not, is there a way to save the file somewhere so I can import it myself easily in the future?
  21. Good evening, everyone. When manually creating table styles you can create custom cell styles and set, for each of them, a horizontal and a vertical margin. I'm trying to change an existing table style via LISP. I need to check each cell style, extract the values of its horizontal and vertical margins, multiply those values by a factor and then set these new products as the horizontal and vertical margins of that cell style. My problem is that I don't seem to find reference to cell styles anywhere. I can't find them using entget and I can't find them listed in vlax-dump-object. Is there a way to get the names of all the cell styles defined in a table style? And then is there a way to change the properties of such cell styles (namely the horizontal and vertical cell margins)? The most promising thing I've found so far is the GetCellStyles method (which is supposed to list by name the defined cell styles), but I can't seem to be able to use it correctly. No matter which arguments I supply to it I always get nil. Does anyone know how to use the GetCellStyles method? I thank you all in advance. PS.: there are a HorzCellMargin and a VertCellMargin methods (40 and 41 groups in the tablestyle entity list), but the values there apply only to the standard cell styles ("Data", "Header" and "Title").
  22. Our company uses "hand" as the style for all our projects. I need to import a table from excel with excel formatting. After I change all the text to "hand" style I can't figure out how to change the font. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
  23. Does someone have a routine (or know of a way) to reorder a column of text items? ie: Line 1 Line 2 Line 3 Line 4 to Line 4 Line 3 Line 2 Line 1 I have a large table of text that I need to flip the column order. Has someone posted something along these lines? Is there an Autocad command I don't know about? I have had no luck in any of the search terms I have used.. Thanks for all the help you guys provide...

    Pipe radius in table

    Hello all, I would like to be able to have my pipe table generated so that if there is not a radius it would display a " - " in the cell of the table as opposed to a 0.00' radius. Has anyone found a way? Any and all help is appreciated. Thanks, Phil
  25. Hi guys, I've created a table through data extraction using blocks for data. The table isn't showing the text for comments, keywords,title or subject that is in the drawing file for the different blocks. Any ideas why this is so? Thanks
