  1. Hi, I try to plot my drawings in this new template that i created - with all those new layer. I have compared it with my other drawings, the layer properties is pretty much the same however for this drawing, some of my layer are not visible in the viewport and missing when i plot the view. All layer missing are in white colors. Do you guys happened to know why this is happening and what are the solution? Thanks.
  2. Hi, I have a problem that I have many drawings which contain number of the same block which should be hide. Based on tips from another threads I came up the following solution which I don't know how to utilize. First -> I use lisp which create new layer, then blocks with the same name are moved to this layer. For example something like this: (vl-load-com) ;Load VLisp extensions ;; Function to change bllocks to a layer by wildcard (defun Blk2Lay (LName ss / n en eo) (if (not (tblobjname "LAYER" LName)) ;Check if layer doesn't exist (command "._LAYER" "_Make" LName "") ;Make the layer ) ;_ end of if (setq n (sslength ss)) ;Initialize counter (while (>= (setq n (1- n)) 0) ;Step through all entities in selection set (setq en (ssname ss n) ;Get the nth EName eo (vlax-ename->vla-object en) ;Get the ActiveX object ) ;_ end of setq (vla-put-Layer eo LName) ;Change block reference to new layer ) ;_ end of while ) ;_ end of defun ;; Command to change blocks to a layer by wildcard (defun c:Blk2Lay (/ LName BWild ss) (if (setq LName (getstring "Enter the layer's name: ")) ;Get the layer's name (if (and (or (and (= (setq BWild (getstring ;Get wildcard, default as layer name (strcat "Enter the wildcard for the block name <*" LName "*>: ") ) ;_ end of getstring ) ;_ end of setq "" ) ;_ end of = (setq BWild (strcat "*" LName "*")) ;Default to LName ) ;_ end of and (and BWild (/= BWild "")) ) ;_ end of or (setq ss (ssget "_X" (list '(0 . "INSERT") (cons 2 BWild)))) ;And some blocks found ) ;_ end of and (Blk2Lay LName ss) ;Perform the change ) ;_ end of if ) ;_ end of if (princ) ) ;_ end of defun Second - > I changed property of this layer to non visible. Third - > I applied above changes on selected drawings. Based on another example I found that there is possible to use LISP getfiles as well as ObjectDBX Wrapper which allow to use another function like below: //This is example of script which remove blocks with name "KOLKO' from selected drawings (defun c:dbtest ( / lst ) (if (setq lst (LM:getfiles "Select Drawings to Process" nil "dwg;dws;dwt")) (LM:odbx '(lambda ( doc ) (LM:deleteblocks doc '("KOLKO"))) lst t) (princ "\n*Cancel*") ) (princ) ) Can anyone help me how I can solve my problem?
  3. I've updated to 2015, and most of the changes aren't a big deal. However, the new version shows the layer properties window with a medium grey background. I find it visually difficult to tell what items are selected and to read the text. Does anyone know if it is possible to change this window back to white with black text like the older CAD versions? I've attached images of both the new version and my preference for older, easier to read version. Preferred WHITE version : AutoCAD 2015 GREY version :
  4. I got the CAD file and want to find the length of the line of specific layer. The image attached contain the red line one dotted and other straight and full. The dotted represent the existing and full & straight represent the new & Proposed. By using the select similar I got the both line selected because both have of same layer (I think). Is it possible to use any command in autoCAD which select only doted line or full line at a time. (because In file there are about 20 groups of these line).
