  1. (Autocad 2015) Express Tools is loaded, the Express Tools menu is displayed. 97% or more of the Express Tools work just fine. Tools -> System Variables (SYSVDLG) does not work (Unknown Command) Is there a way to manually fix this short of the uninstall/reinstall?
  2. I am trying to convert text to mtext but the "txt2mtxt" command is not working. all the other express tools are working; this command shows up as unknown. I have searched for this command on the apploader and had no luck. How do I get this command to work?
  3. For some reason the Express Tools were not loaded when they installed Autocad 2015. I guess the checkbox was overlooked among the tons of other stuff loaded. In days of old you could copy the Express Tools folder, load the Express Tools Menu and "APPLOAD" the main file and you were good to go. I found the Express folder among the install files (they're not compressed) But when I go to load the menu, I don't see it. Can anyone walk me through the process of manually loading the Express Tools in Autocad 2015 (Please??) Thanks Much!!
  4. I am working in autocad for mac when I am not at work (dreadful program) and it's lackluster to say the least. Since there are no express tools, i can't FLATTEN the drawing. I have a bunch of objects on varying levels of the Z plane which is infuriating. it happened cause I got blocks from an outside source so it just cam in that way (side note: is there a way to disable 3d mode completely even if i import blocks) I was wondering if someone would be able to take my drawing and flatten it for me in real autocad and sent back to me as a 2010 DWG so I can open the thing and have everything on the same plane. Thank you!
  5. Hi every one, For days I looked on the internet from detailed info to mere description of all the ACET-..... functions given by the express tools. I found a great excel file listing all of them (I think - see attached file: ACET-FUNCTIONS.xls) But nothing really tangible regarding how to use them... I've looked @ all the *.chm files from autocad I have in my system but nothing came up (one small express tool chm file on the tools shown in the ribbons nothing more). So if someone can enlighten me I will be very thankful NB: I'm on Autocad 2012.

    Express Tools tab 2012

    On the top in AutoCAD Architecture 2012 where the tabs are (Home, Insert, Annotate, Render, etc...) I am missing the one for Express Tools. When I right click on the area and under Show Tabs, there is not the option to tun it on or off, it isn't there at all. The computer next to mine which has the same AutoCAD Architecture 2012 installed on it has it there but mine does not. How can I get that tab?
  7. Hi every one, Althogh txtexp command of express tools, works fine in the lack of such internal command, but it has a bug. In some cases, it moves newly exploded text far away from the original location and changes the size of it. Is there any suggestion to correct this bug?

    Blocks Replace

    Hi to everybody, Is there a way to modify the tools blocks replace available in Autocad Express Tools ?. I try to explain better : - The express tools blocks replaces "all" blocks inside the dwg comparing the name. - I would like to change only selected ones ? Is there a way to have access to express tools blocks replace "macro" and starting from that create another only for replace the selected one ?. Somebody think that could be easier create complete new tools for my issue ? Many thanks for all your support
