Hi, i'm want to import the code (or description) from csv file (X,Y,Code) on the coordinates of each point. I can do it in excel, but i'm looking for a easy way. The layer could be current, height 2, and rotation 0. I can change this properties later, so no problem about it. Please excuse my limited English, corrections are welcome. Many thanks in advance.
I am wondering if there is a way to update the description of an existing block. I notice that the associated hyperlink of a block can be updated via the Properties window, but I haven’t been able to find a location or command to update its description. I suppose the block could be exploded and redefined with the new description, but my intuition says that there should be a more direct method I haven’t been able to figure out yet. If it matters, I am using AutoCAD 2013. Thanks in advance for the help.
Hello everyone, this is my first post here (though I have been reading these Forums for quite a while). When you create a new multiline style (or modify an existing one) you can set a "Description" text. That text can be seen when you do the following: "MLINE" "STyle" "?" What I wish to do is retrieve that information through LISP. I couldn't find it when applyling entget-car-entsel or vlax-dump-object to the multiline entity. I don't know if this is relevant, but I shall explain why I need that description. We use multilines here to draw structural elements. The name of the MLSTYLE is the name of the steel profile, for example W150X29.5. The second number (29.5) is the linear mass of the piece (kg/m). What I need to do is multiply the MLINE length and the linear mass to obtain the final mass of the element. The problem is that I can't create a multiline style named "W150X29.5" because of the . character, which is forbidden. So I thought I'd place the linear weight information on the MLSTYLE description to later retrieve it give it proper use. Even if you gentlemen can find me a solution that does not involve retrieving MLSTYLE Description I'd still wish to find out how to do that. Thank you all for your time. Felipe
