Modified CLIP Lisp Routine? Anyone?
tmelancon posted a topic in AutoLISP, Visual LISP & DCLI am interested in seeing if anyone has a modified CLIP routine. I like what it does but I would much rather the "clipped" part of the object to be controlled in a different way. Instead of completely 'wiping out' the target part of the object, I would like it to be put on a "hidden" layer as we have it here, where the linetype is dashed and the color is light. Any ideas? See picture and look forward to discussion
Parse text information into a pasteclip routine
wing posted a topic in AutoLISP, Visual LISP & DCLI've got an idea for an autolisp routine. I'd like to select text or mtext objects with bearing and distance (in metric units of course) and generate a paste_clip that I can paste into. i.e.: I click on a text that has 12%%d01'10" as its text content. I click on a text that has 10.01 as its text content. repeat for other segments I press on c or esc to end the input. I get a "nice" paste_clip on my mouse cursor where I specify the insertion point (The first line segment being 12°01'10" orientation and 10.01 for its length.) Being a novice autolisp programmer, can somebody point me in the right direction please? I have some experience with outputting text, lines and points but this is a bit tougher. A polyline would be nicer to have but I don't mind a series of lines too at this stage.
VIEWBASE with XREF that I'd like to clip
ben_hensel posted a topic in AutoCAD Drawing Management & OutputI have pipes and equipment in modelspace. Walls and structural columns are XREFed in from another DWG. I want to create base + projected views in paperspace. However, the walls-and-columns drawing is 3 times the footprint of the stuff in THIS drawing: it would eat a lot of paper for no benefit. So I used XCLIP in modelspace to slice away the parts of the XREF I don't want. Then I used VIEWBASE over in paperspace. The whole (unclipped) XREF was created in the view. I know I can remove XREFs from the view with VIEWEDIT but I want to be able to measure off some of the walls; it's just that the walls are longer than I need (for this specific drawing). Does anyone have a silver-bullet solution to this? Otherwise I might be (1) going to Viewports instead or (2) slicing my building drawings into pieces. I am not too enthusiastic about either of those.
Having Copy paste issues any assistance would be greatly appreaciated
mikewa posted a topic in AutoCAD Beginners' Areawe 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 regardless of what the object is i could draw a line and not be able to copy paste it. and another thing it does when this starts happening is it creates a few dozen random blocks *A2556 etc etc that i have to purge out. please help me with this issue ive managed to figure out/deal with all the other issues autocad 2014 has brought to us but this one i cant figure out for the life of me and its not just my computer it happens on all of them and happens even if you start a project with nothing
oliverpockets posted a topic in AutoCAD Drawing Management & OutputIs there a way to prevent a viewport from showing behind an object drawn in paper space? It's not attached to the side of the title block so I can't _vpclip around it. It's floating in the lower left corner, and I don't want the contour lines on this map to show up behind it.
