  1. Hey all! Been a while... New job... Working in 2008 LT SP1 right now, and have been noticing most drawings I have inherited are HUGE! Even a blank drawing I have created from deleting objects, purging, ran "audit" and saved back is still over 300kb. Decided to open this up in ACAD LT 2012. and get this dialog... Clicking YES and saving the file reduces the file size in some cases 10 fold... Is this option available in 2008 LT? If so, I do not see the dialog. Read elsewhere that this dialog, once turned off (check the box), cannot be turned back on. Thoughts anyone?
  2. I have a vector map of a floor and all i am given are vectors and grade ratios (i.e. 1:155.095, 1:97.561) of the floor. The problem is that I only want to look at the areas of the floor that are below a certain grade ratio (1:69), but they are ratios set as Text Contents so AutoCAD doesnt understand that these ratios are numbers. I am looking for a Lisp function that, for each text if a ratio across an entire floor (or the layout), copy the text (which is a ratio), find out the number that the ratio is (i.e. take the 1 and divide by 69), then replace the text with just the number (0.0145).
  3. Hello all. I have a routine that enters data labels in a drawing where the user would like them. It finds data in a file and inserts it based on the label number the user inputs. However, for the data labels that we enter that have no information, but the user still wants that label called out, it simply enters "#50.00-0.00". I was able to remove the "0.00" suffix because it was obvious in the code. But I would also like to remove ".00" immediately after the data label, and this isnt working out in my favor. The only thing that I would like displayed is "#50-". No decimals and no zeros. I
  4. I am looking for a routine to automate what we already do. We have a routine that currently when we run the command it ask for "Select location on pipe" which then user selects a point where they want the leader to start. After selecting the initial point the user then selects the "landing" point- the point where the number on a specific layer will appear. It then asks the user to enter the number for point they are referencing. Once the user hits "1" then "enter". It automatically puts in that number on the layer specified in the code with a prefix(#) and a suffix (-). This gets the
  5. Hi to all, Please someone knows if its possible to create a field on a text form that could count a number of texts inside a drawing?... Eg.: I have the word "L1" 10 times in a drawing, it's possible to create a field that show me how many L1 I have in this drawing? Count of L1 = [10]; the item 10 it's automatic updates.
  6. Hi all, I'm looking to sequentially number all my text inserts but based on their content. For example, imagine I have 5 text boxes with the contents as "Text" and 5 with the contents "Number". I want the "Text" boxes to be numbered 1 - 5 and the "Number" boxes to be numbered 1 - 5. I'm aware I can use TCOUNT to auto-number them, but this would mean selecting each box individually based on it's contents. Does anyone know if there is a way of doing this, without using LISP? I have done a google search but I'm not coming up with much. Thanks in advance, Clare
  7. Hi guys i'm trying to figure out how to make this lisp and I'm just not able to get it done I would like a lisp to do this by launching "CHC" - Select objects (or objects could be already selected when launching the CHC lisp) - Question asked: "Which color ?" (answering a color number) - If number is 256 or more (its wrong) and the question has to be reasked to get a number between 1 and 255. -Change selection set to the color# answered I've try this but it doesnt work : (defun c:chc ( / obj col#) (setq cmdecho 0) (setq obj (ssget)) (setq col# (getint "\nQuelle co
  8. Hi All What i'm looking to do is the following with a lisp routine. pick 1st pick 2nd place answer (10) 5'-0" = 50' Thanks, Brian
  9. I made a couple routines for a friend who wanted to increment numbers and letters. I know there are a few different programs out there already but you only learn by trying, right! I used kind of a different approach than the programs I have seen. I tried to understand Lees suite but promptly gave up on that adventure... for now... Please take a look as I would like to know if I did anything that could be improved. All your input lately has been much appreciated, thank you all! The numbering program creates a new text style and gives the user an option to add a suffix to the number
  10. How do we flip the dimension numbers from one side of the line to another? My dimension always appears on the left hand side for a vertical line and on the top for horizontal line... Can I make them appear on the bottom or right side? How do I do it? Command: DIMLINEAR
  11. Hello Everyone! As my first post I'm going to give a doozy. I've searched and searched, but can't find a lisp or info that helps me with my problem. Maybe I can find some help here - even though I've already turned grey, I'd still appreciate it. So, here we go... I insert attributed blocks into my drawings that list part number, model number, etc. Along with these attributes, there's another tag that is an incremental number (used in our Bill of Materials). If there are two identical parts (i.e., same model number), the incremental number needs to be the same; if the parts are diff
  12. When I open an AutoCAD file which I receive from a client, before starting to work, I want to know how big is the file. Or how many objects are there in the file? Is there any command to show the number of objects (points, lines, circles, …) in a file?
