  1. This is related to command LayerOrder or AecLayerOrder in AutoCAD Architecture 2015. This command lets user specify the order in which layers are displayed in the drawing. I'm trying to modify the order by program, but can't find where this list is stored. It has something to do with a dictionary AECDACH_VARS_UTIL within dictionary AEC_VARS, because when it's deleted, the layers go back to their original order. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
  2. Hello there! I need to make a small sub which aims putting all modelspace hatch objects to bottom in draw order. I've debugged the code below, but the line in red never works. Now I'm trapped in here. Please someone help me out? Thanks a million. Sub hatch_to_back() Dim eDictionary As ObjectDim sentityObj As Object Dim A1_STB(0) As Object For Each b In ThisDrawing.ModelSpace If TypeName(b) = "IAcadHatch" Then Set eDictionary = ThisDrawing.ModelSpace.GetExtensionDictionary* On Error Resume Next* Set sentityObj = eDictionary.GetObject("ACAD_SORTENTS") If sentityObj Is Nothing Then* Set sentityObj = eDictionary.AddObject("ACAD_SORTENTS", "AcDbSortentsTable") End If Set A1_STB(0) = b sentityObj.MoveToBottom A1_STB AcadApplication.Update End If Next End Sub
  3. Apparently I have overloaded AutoCAD's little mind. I needed a way to cover the background of a bubble note, which is a multileader with the standard circle for content. First I tried Wipeout, but it kept turning out dark in PDFs. Then I tried a solid hatch with override color 255. Obviously I want the note itself to display, so I set Draw Order for the hatch to Behind Boundary. In model space the note displays correctly, but in layouts the hatch moves to the front and takes on the color of the multileader's layer, whether the multileader is in model space or paper space. The notes plot correctly, so these misbehaving hatches are more of a nuisance than a problem. Is there a simple way to fix this? Some system variable that reverses draw order in paper space or controls the appearance of hatches?
  4. Hi, I'm new and self taught on cad (so sorry if i appear dumb) I've used cad now in a basic 2d architectural sense now for 10 years, through various versions. I have recently dropped back to a 2007 from 2008 (changed jobs) and for some reason the draw order is all messed up i noticed this first through hatching but its on everything including inserted images. I've tried a few of the solutions on other threads even uninstalling cad and re-installing it and nothing seems to be sorting it. Functions like 'send to back' etc just don't work and the draw orders are all to pot. Any ideas ?
  5. Hi all first of all thanks to everyone for all the help in the past, a really cool community here, hopefully one day i have the knowlede to return the favour. maybe i could shout a six pack of ausie beer some time. I am working on a road design with a whole set of drawings that have about 10 -15 xrefs, for example pavement hatch, contours, detailed survey, cadastral, design, ret walls, drainage layout, survey ug services, tcs layouts, utilities, utilities (current theme), survey bdy, prop bdy, plan control, text notes. this is the order i need the xrefs in, but some drawings have more or less xrefs than others. can anyone suggest a way i could put these in order rather than individually picking a line from an xref and sending it to the back, over and over again? i thought maybe a table where i number the order next to the xref name. Im new to this lisp routine so please be gentle. Cheers Marcus
  6. i am using autocad 2009. draw order options like 'send to back' or 'bring to front' , for solid hatch, are not working in my drawing.. previously they used to work. bt nw they r nt working in that same file. tried all possible ways..
  7. Is there anyway that I can assign a layer to be always in the front/on top of all other layers in draw order?
