Command Line Not Staying Docked - *FIX*
ILoveMadoka posted a topic in AutoCAD 2D Drafting, Object Properties & InterfaceI'm posting this for any future people encountering the same issue. Hopefully it will save them some frustration! I'm old and I like the Command Line under the tabs. Personal Pref... I tried letting it float and adjusting transparency settings for several months and I'm just an old dog. I just read every thread I could find about how to get the Command line to stay put. I tried every variation if LOCKUI with no luck. Saving Workspaces (and new Workspaces) didn't work for me. CUI didn't work either. (Restarting ACAD always reset the location) Easiest Fix - WSSETTINGS -> Check Automatically Save Workspace Settings ALT Method/Same Command - Workspaces Pulldown (Upper Left of center) Where Drafting and Notation, 3D Modeling, 3D Basics are located Pick Workspace Settings Check Automatically Save Workspace Settings I did find this mentioned in one thread but it was a bit obscure. Don't mean to offend anyone, just trying to do something to help others the way many on here help me!
Layer palette size/location
rkmcswain posted a topic in AutoCAD 2D Drafting, Object Properties & InterfaceUser is running AutoCAD 2017. Every so often after closing AutoCAD, and restarting it, the layer palette positions itself as shown in the screenshot with no user interaction. Even more bizarre, user was just given a NEW PC with a fresh install, and no "migration" was done. This still happens on new PC occasionally. Any thoughts?
Exporting object locations to csv
protostar49 posted a topic in AutoCAD Drawing Management & OutputHi, I am trying to export the location of an object to a csv/excel file. To explain further I have a 2D site layout with multiple instances of the same object (sensors) and I want to be able to export their locations to provide accurate data for our installation teams. I do understand that the location data is only as good as the drawing but the actual process has got me a little stumped... Any help would be very much appreciated! Thanks
Hello all and thanks ahead of time for any guidance. To simply put it, I am grabbing linework from a dwg and copying it from base point 0,0,0. in the drawing that I want to copy it into, I hit ctrl+v and type 0,0,0 to put it exactly where it needs to be. For some reason, that I cannot figure out, the 0,0,0 point in the two drawings are different...so I have to zoom extents and hunt for it 10,000feet away in model space. But that is not the main problem because I can always find it and move it where it needs to be. The main problem is that when I move the copied linework over the previous linework that needs updated, it has been rotated like 3 - 4 degrees. That, or my base file's linework has been rotated 3 - 4 degrees - which doesn;t make sense because my base files linework is made up of xref's! All drawings are set to UCS World. Is there a way to make the 0,0,0 points the same location in both my base file and all the xrefs? I can kind of tell that my base file is not completely vertical when the xref dwg is...is there a setting that my base file has for xref's that is rotating them 3 - 4 degrees? Sorry if this is complicated...I am having this problem on several of my projects. I can explain more if I need to.
Plot Points - Using Distances from Two Known Points
Trebor posted a topic in AutoCAD GeneralI have two locations marked by steel stakes on my land that are also shown on a CAD drawing. The CAD drawing is two dimensional; however, contours are shown. I have physically measured distances between these two known points and numerous other locations that I wish to plot on the CAD drawing. I could always print the CAD drawing to scale and plot the new points on the CAD printout by using the two known locations, a compass to draw arcs and locating the new points by where the arcs intersect. I am sure there is a much more efficient way to plot these new points within the CAD program itself. I have just started to use CAD; any help is appreciated.
Ask the name of running program!
Ahankhah posted a topic in AutoLISP, Visual LISP & DCLHi CADTutormates, is it possible to know the name and location of current code by itself? If yes, how? For example, if the loaded program is: "c:/MyFolder/Myprogram.fas", needed to find strings: "c:/MyFolder/" and "Myprogram.fas"?
