  1. Hi, running 2016 LT on Windows 10 machine. I have used Mleaders for years and it always give me a prompt in the Command Line for the value or text. For some unknown reason, it now opens the Edit Attributes window and I have to enter the text and then click OK. Really slow. What have it turned on or off and how do I fix it. ATTREQ = 1
  2. Hello, I am trying to create a lisp routine that sets all existing MLEADERs to a certain pre-set MLEADERSTYLE, the equivalent of doing a Quick Select for Mleaders, and setting the style under the properties window. I was able to write a similar routine that selects all dimensions and sets them to a certain DIMSTYLE, using entmod and DXF code 3 for dimstyle. So far, I have not been able to find a group code for MLEADERSTYLE Any help would be greatly appreciated! (defun C:dimstylechange (/ ENTITIES NO_OF_ENTITIES SSPOSITION ENTITY_NAME OLD_ENTLIST NEW_STYLE NEW_ENTLIST) (setvar "CMDECHO" 0) (setq ENTITIES (ssget "X" '((0 . "DIMENSION")))) (setq NO_OF_ENTITIES (sslength ENTITIES)) (setq SSPOSITION 0) (repeat NO_OF_ENTITIES ;***CHANGE STYLE*** (setq ENTITY_NAME (ssname ENTITIES SSPOSITION)) (setq OLD_ENTLIST (entget ENTITY_NAME)) (setq OLD_STYLE (assoc 3 OLD_ENTLIST)) (setq NEW_STYLE (cons 3 "BCR 11x17")) (setq NEW_ENTLIST (subst NEW_STYLE OLD_STYLE OLD_ENTLIST)) (entmod NEW_ENTLIST) ;***CHANGE LAYER*** (setq OLD_ENTLIST (entget ENTITY_NAME)) (setq OLD_STYLE (assoc 8 OLD_ENTLIST)) (setq NEW_STYLE (cons 8 "DIM")) (setq NEW_ENTLIST (subst NEW_STYLE OLD_STYLE OLD_ENTLIST)) (entmod NEW_ENTLIST) (setq SSPOSITION (1+ SSPOSITION)) ) (command ".CHPROP" ENTITIES "" "C" "BYLAYER" "LT" "BYLAYER" "") (princ (strcat "\n..."

  4. I've only been learning LISPing for a few weeks so C&C's are most welcome. LINK TO VIDEO: One of my most used LISPs is the LeaderToMleader.LSP. Found here. It was last updated many moons ago, so I decided to try learn and modify it to suit. Many thanks to the original author Lyle Hardin. I just need some guidance on how to get UCS working with it. EDIT. Using the TRANS fn. It works okay. Took a bit of tweaking but I got it. Please test. Here's a list of things I've changed at the top of the code: Main ones are: Multiple Selection - User can now select the LEADER and MTEXT together and no longer individually resulting in a much faster conversion. Strip text - Of formatting option - LM:UnFormat fn written by LeeMac. Annotation support - Program simply matches the (entget) object to that of the (entlast) object. With the help of AT:isAnnotative written by Alan J. Thompson. Case conversion - Built in fns using (load "TcaseSup.lsp") - OPTIONS: Titlecase Lowercase Uppercase Sentencecase toGglecase Keepcase Verts - Leader_To_Multileader now supports 2 or 3 points. (Old method was only 2). It uses the 1st, 2nd (if applicable) and last verts of the LEADER. The 4th vert or more, will get removed. Text Rotation - MTEXT rotation is now preserved. Undo levels - As opposed to one command at a time. PS. How easy would it be to calculate the distance between the start point of the LEADER point and pos of the MTEXT and then for each of the closest pairs make them an MULTILEADER. That would be cool. ;;; CADALYST 08/08 www.cadalyst.com/code ; Tip 2305: Leader_To_Multileader.lsp LEADER to Multileader (c) 2008 Lyle Hardin ; Pick an old style LEADER and text to create a new MLEADER entity and erase the old LEADER and text. ; March/2008 ;;; EDITED ON 15/04/2017 BY 3DWANNAB ; Reason for creating this, was to learn and create a LISP that I use on a regular basis. ; Commandline Syntax: Type "Leader_To_Multileader" OR "LTM" to run Program. ; ; ADDED - Case Conversion. ; OPTIONS: ; Titlecase Lowercase Uppercase Sentencecase toGglecase Keepcase. ; ; ADDED - Annotation support.

The 4th vert or more, will get removed. ; NOTE: Not really any need for more than 3 points on an MLEADER, I don't think. ; ;;; KNOWN QUIRKS, BUGS ; Works in different UCSs, if you are fixing MTEXT & LEADERS which are upside down then the new MLEADER might be a little wacky. ; ;;; FUTURE ADDITIONS ; Convert based on how close the LEADER and MTEXT are away from each other.

  5. I have a bit a head scratcher. I want a lisp that when run I will be able to select the whole drawing and all the mleaders will automatically justify to the side that the leader and arrow is on. Occasionally our leaders get move and it is time consuming to change them individually. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  6. Hello, My manager made this LSP file for me and it doesn't work and we are both not sure why. Seems correct to me. How it works: Creates the E-Anno-Note layer, otherwise makes it current, then creates an MLeader (to avoid creating leaders on incorrect layers). (DEFUN C:NN () (setvar "cmdecho" 0) (if (not (tblsearch "layer" "E-Anno-Note")) (command "-layer" "n" "E-Anno-Note" "c" "2" "E-Anno-Note" "")) (command "-layer" "m" "E-Anno-Note") (COMMAND "mleader") (princ) ) Thanks!
  7. I need to select all existaing MLeader on a specific MLeader Style and change them to an other MLeader style. I already create a similar code to dimension that work good for exemple. ________________________________________________________________ (setq dimstyle_old (ssget "_X" '((0 . "*DIMENSION") (2 . "dimstyle_old") ))) (COMMAND "OPTCHPROP" dimstyle_old "" "D" "dimstyle_new" "") ________________________________________________________________ The problem is: I am not able to find a dxf group code that work for MLeaders... Thank you Patrick
  8. Hello. I'm attempting to create a custom mleader style for keynotes, using a user defined block. This works great when I start the leader on the left and pull to the right. However, when I do the opposite, the block does not flip and the leader landing is attached to the wrong side of the block. (See attached) Is there a way to get the block to flip? I have no experience with LISPing, so if that 's the only way to resolve the issue, I will find another way. Thanks in advance. mleaderblock.dwg
  9. I have the command syntax in my lisp file to create a splined Mleader but I when I try to add text to the Mleader using the Mleader settings, I end up getting text at the landing. How can I put the text at the arrowhead?
  10. Does anyone know how can change to new text style in Multileader text? i set up the new Mleader with the new text style and set as current, but when i used mleader on model space it's still show the same type of text and when i came back and checked on the mleader manager box, it still goes by the default
  11. Is there a way to create a lips program or a vba macro to offset a line on both sides, keep the source, then trim all the content between the two offset lines and delete them. Or is there a way to create the same effect around a MLeader? Something like the described on the attached imaged
  12. Hey guys. I have a LISP I wrote this morning that asks for an insertion point, grabs the layer of the object, then draws a MLEADER on an associated layer. I have it working completely, except when a block is selected. Can anyone take a look at the code and help out? Thanks in advance!

  13. I have an old project where the mleaders were all created in WCS and aligned to it for a preliminary plan set. Now that the plan has progressed to CDs (over a year later) they have rotated the views to a new alignment for the final plans. I'd love to not have to re-do all my mleaders in the new UCS to match the new alignment. Has anyone found a way to update existing mleaders to follow a new UCS? Any help greatly appreciated. Thanks
  14. Okay so two questions both relating to text in a multileader. 1) I have written a lisp that sets layer, creates a revcloud but when it gets the point at which it generates an mleader, I run into problems. Basically it draws the leader then ask me for the text in the command window. But soon as I hit space (as in between words) it finishes the command. I am hoping there is a way to pop up the normal dialog box that happens with multileaders so that the user can type in there entry hit okay then it finishes the lisp. 2) Second question, I am using a portion of a lisp from Ken Jolly that uses a series of texts in quote marks and then the user can select from them in a dialog box. it works great but for some of our longer texts I would like it if it could insert a 'return' to bring it to the next line. Is there a way to do that? See attached code. The one I have modified but not posted utilizes a mleader not a leader. '\n' did not work. Any help would be appreciated. note.zip
  15. Hi all, I just purchased Autocad 2010 and going through the mleader settings I can't figure out which settings will have the mtext come in at a 90 deg. angle. The option to have the text placed for "reading from right" places the text at maybe a 80 deg. angle w/ ortho on. The horizontal setting does its job. Could I be overlooking a setting? Greatly appreciate your suggestions.
