  1. I searched previous post, and could not find a answer to my issue. I copied some lines with global widths into another drawing and the line is displayed and printed with an outline around the global width of the line in the new drawing.. almost like it is a (3D offset for the global width, and not solid fill) I have checked my fillmode. "fillmode = 1" and I also checked my UCS "UCS is set to current" Why is this happening and can someone tell me if it has to do with some inherent properties of that new dwg? Thanks
  2. Hi all, I have done data extraction of my CAD file to excel using AutoCad 2017 (full version), which includes global width, but did not include the handle or any other type of ID to distinguish the lines from one another. Is there any way to get the attributes of lines, specifically global width, in an attribute table that includes the handle to distinguish the lines? If this can be accomplished in other cad software that is free besides Autocad, I'm open to that as well Thanks!
  3. Hi all, I am using AutoCad 2015, the problem I have is that when I select a polyline, do select similar and change the global width to 0.15 (for example) then when I save the drawing and re-open it, when I select the polyline and select similar, it says the global width is varies. I know this sounds like a rather minor problem but at work, everything gets checked and these kind of small errors do have a rather large effect on our performance rating. The strange thing about this is that it only happens for some drawings and not all drawings. Unfortunately that is all the information I really have on the problem so I hope that is enough. Thank you for your time, Josh
  4. I'm looking for a LISP that will allow me to offset a polyline on one layer with a global width (any varying width) to another layer (a specific layer written into the code) with a global width of 0. Please help
