  1. Hello Everyone, Been looking through lee mac's website for helpful lisp routines for work and found this copy2layouts lisp routine he created. When I start the command, it doesn't seem to select any objects I have within the layout for me to copy. Instead, it only selects object in the model space. Can anyone help me with this? And if Lee Mac see this, BIG FAN! Copy2LayoutsV1-1.lsp © 2020 Lee Mac DarkLightVLIDE ;;-----------------------=={ Copy to Layouts }==------------------------;; ;; ;;
  2. Hi there, I'm trying to convert a few thousand files from dwg to pdf and I believe I'm on the right track but am a little stuck. I'm attempting to use DWG TrueView though I have limited access to AutoCAD for like template creation and such. I seem to have trouble getting some of them to plot/publish and also it seems many of the layouts don't show the entire actual view (like I see 1/4 corner taking up the entire page) - scaling problems. My procedure is to create model and sheet page setup files in AutoCAD to use the built in DWG to PDF printer and 8.5" x 11" landscape. So I ope
  3. Version 1.0.2


    This small program works just like AutoCAD's GATTE express tool, with the extra option of choosing which layouts to apply attribute changes to. GATTE2 is made in lisp and uses CAB's Layout Select program to select which layouts you want. Make sure you place LayoutSelect.dcl in an AutoCAD search path or GATTE2 will not work! Required Files: gatte2.lsp LayoutSelect.dcl Both in gatte2.zip See this thread for more details. Function Syntax: gatte2 For instructions on how to run the program see here.
  4. Hi all. I've looked pretty much everywhere for a solution. I basically what to show the UCS at its origin, just like the command UCSICON>OR>ENTER but for all spaces. I can go this route but this means iterating through all the layouts. (foreach itm (append '("Model") (layoutlist)) (setvar "ctab" itm) (command "._ucsicon" "ORIGIN") ) Would there be a vla-put method for this?
  5. Hi all, firstly, apologies for my lack of technical terms on this, please bear with me whilst I try to explain what I am struggling with! Right, I have got a drawing of a school that we are designing the fire sprinkler layout on. For the initial approval drawings, I have printed it to scale an A0 paper which is fine. However, I am now looking at doing the construction issue drawings following the approval and I want these on no larger than A1 paper and a larger scale for ease of use on site. This is where my problem comes in. A colleague has previously split the original layout of anot
  6. Hi all, I have a colleague that came to me with a question. He would like to grab everything in a layout and scale it by 1.5X while at the same time having all of the viewports in that layout adjust their scales by 1.5 as well. I don't think there is a way to have AutoCAD automatically do this, but I thought I'd post it in case I'm wrong. Thanks.
  7. Hi all, I have about 140 layouts and I've just been asked to add a piece of information (some mtext) to every other layout, any ideas? Any help is appreciated, Dave
  8. Hi All. Im assuming this could be done via a lisp but not entirely sure. Im wondering if there is a way to create a layout with border plus a viewport that uses a polyline/block set in model space as its reference for its limits. Almost the opposite way that the change space command works but creating a viewport in the process. I basically have some polylines setup in a drawing that essentially ring around certain areas and would like to create layouts from these polylines and use them for the boundaries. Im wondering if there is also a possiblity that if i create a block or som
  9. Hey guys, hope your guys' summer have been awesome so far. I am working on a piece of code where I can save each layout as a 2004 autocad drawing (as well as bind any xref's and purge/audit the drawing). One of our clients requires this and depending on the project size it can take a long time manually. I was looking around for a code for a long time, and only one has come really close to what I was looking for... and I found it here I've taken certain parts of his code and b*stardized it to fit closer to my needs. One of the reasons using "wblock" doesn't work for my case is t

    CTAB Field editing

    Evening All I have a scenario where I want to use some thing like the system variable CTAB in a field but have it report another Layout Name in the drawing rather than the Layout that I'm working in. Let me explain..... I'm producing phasing drawings for a well known supermarket and I use the Layout Tab name to drive the phasing dates within the Layout. ie P1 - Thu 23 Oct. I then use this to populate the title block etc with the system variable CTAB this saves me a whole load of time as I know the dates on the Layout tab name are correct and will therefore be right in the drawings (up
  11. Hi All, I am having problems Xref ing a drawing of my new title block to paperspace. The plan is to try and have it as the default title block whenever I select to layout a drawing, can anybody help me with this? Regards Greg
  12. Hi folks I have a floor plan of residential building. In modeling mode the ratio is 1:1, after I fitted the drawing to my viewport in layout mode, the ratio is lets say 1:50. Does this effect my dimension? I used metric unit (Centimeter), because I thought when someone reads my drawing, he will count each 1 unit as 50 which I dont want. I know it sounds kinda rookie, bu pls som1 give some hands
  13. I have inserted an image to a layout for our drawings. On my computer the image shows just fine in the layout. On my co-worker's computer, she doesn't see the image when she opens the same layout. It shows the reference location- example-Z:\Facilties\blah\blah.jpeg I have AutoCAD 2013 and they have AutoCAD 2014 Is this why there is an issue? Please help, I want to add this template layout to all our drawings company wide, but if she can't see the image there is a major problem!
  14. Hello, I’m trying to save myself a bit of time and was wondering if it is possible to have part of the file location displayed in the title block? The current title block we are using shows the full file location of the drawing but I was wondering if it is possible to show only part of this? The reason I am asking is that when a project progresses to the next stage we have to go through each drawing and change the status to warrant, tender, construction etc. so I am looking for a way that this can be done automatically and I was thinking if only part of the file location could be u
  15. Hello, I have used the GATTE2.lsp and am indebted to the person who posted it. It's wonderful. Now I humbly ask if there is a way to use the LAYOUTSELECT.DCL in order to completely delete blocks from certain layouts. I would LOVE to learn how to program and work with lisps, dcls, dlls, etc. but no time is allocated for this in my division. I rely on the kindness of strangers. Thank you in advance for any help!
  16. Thanks in advance for any help with this issue. I was asked to convert a .DWG to a .PDF. The .DWG came from a manufacturer and displayed 3 pages worth of content that was seperated into 3 Engineering Drawings. The layout included all 3 pages. I want to Plot this document to a 3 Page PDF. Do I need to create 3 seperate layouts? How do I specify what part of the model goes into a particular layout? Is this a common problem? What is considered best practice for solving the problem.
