  1. Hello, Using the sync attributes (attsync), resets all the attributes properties of all occurrences of that block in the drawing to the defaults. Anyone has a lisp that will reset all properties of one instance of a block to the default properties including attributes? Only the picked instance or several occurrence picked should be reset by the lisp. Thank you
  2. Not sure if this is the right place to post this, but here goes. I've got a block that I frequently edit. One of the tags is in inches, so every time I edit the value I have to append a quotation mark " for inches. Can I append this to the tag in such a way that I don't have to change it each time? I thought about creating a second text object for the quotation mark, but the attribute needs to be centered and the value can change from 1 to 2 digits so it wouldn't always line up properly.
  3. Is it just me or were you able to put a plot stamp on the title block so it would plot where you wanted it to? As appose to what they have now? I have title blocks for letter size, 11x17, and 24x36 and I have to adjust where the plot stamp is for each one. Also when I am placing the viewports I have to make sure the plot stamp will not print over the drawing. I could have sworn that they use to have an attribute that you could add to a block that would add the date or time or file location, and it was a part of the block itself.
  4. Hi all! I would like to give (notedit) a tag attribute value to existing multiple blocks. The attribute is defined as ‘SIGNCODE’ but the value of thisattribute is currently empty.Also I need to givedifferent values to the ‘SIGNCODE’ for multiple blocks in the same file. I am using AutoCAD 2013. The full story is: Due to my project’s requirements, I hadto add additional attributes to existing block. Now I need to fill the valuesof these additional attributes. Each value applies for more than one blocks in the file. Example: If my file contains 300 blocks I wouldlike to give a ‘EX3’ value to the ‘SIGNCODE’ for 100 blocks, a ‘FB’value to the ‘SIGNCODE’ for 50 blocks, and a ‘AE’ value to the sameattribute for the rest of the blocks in the file. PS: I checked older post ‘Editing the same attribute in multipleblocks at one time???’ but the ATTEDIT solution does not work in my case. Alsoselecting multiple blocks and then filling the properties pallet does not work as theblock attributes do not show in the properties.. Your help highly appreciated!
  5. Hello Community After many hours looking for a solution to my 'problem' I have been forced to sign up to a website in which there are far more skilled people than I in their programming skills. My issue isn't new but I am unable to find a straightforward solution. It is this...I wish to update individual blocks with different attributes using their handles from an excel spreadsheet on loading any applicable drawing. As I have it I have Handle | Blockname | Attribute 1 | Attribute 2 | Attribute 3 | etc. I have found Lee Mac's Update Titleblock Attributes and (as I see it) this is similar to what I am after in a different form however, I could be wrong...! Could someone please advise me? Many thanks in advance.
  6. I would like to know if there is a way to make a link between attributes so that text will only need to be entered once to update 2 areas with the same text. Does this make sense?
  7. Hi. I have some blocks (different exit signs) in a drawing. I want to make a table or excel sheet that sums up the number of equal blocks in the drawing. How can i make this? I want to connect this tabel to excel 2010. I use AutoCad LT 2012, can some noe help me?

    Block Attributes

    Hi All, I am really confused of what I have below. I got this code from somewhere on net. This iterates through the attributes and extract the attribute with tag "ROOM_NAME" (while (not (eq "SEQEND" (dxf 0 (setq ent (entnext ent)))) ) (if (= (dxf 2 ent) "ROOM_NAME") (setq RmName (dxf 1 ent)) );If );While Well... Now, What is the condition the 'while' is checking here? What is that "SEQEND"? What is that "dxf" function after SEQEND with '0' (zero) as argument to it? Could someone please help?
