A simplified version of my problem: I have been adding new pipe sizes to an existing parts list. As I add a new part, it is automatically inserted at the bottom of the list. Is there a way to reorganize the parts list by something meaningful like part name, style, or ideally inside diameter? It appears the order of the parts list dictates the order of the drop-down menu used for selecting pipe types and it would make life much easier if this list had some kind of organization. For example my pipe parts list reads: 42" storm pipe 36" sewer pipe 18" sewer pipe 36" storm pipe I would like it to read: 18" sewer pipe 36" sewer pipe 36" storm pipe 42" storm pipe
Hello Everyone, I'm new to AutoCAD.. Basically learning to use it myself because my boss expects an engineer to know a drafter's job I was just beginning to learn about attribute editor and adding text with input commands. Currently working with making a section cut thing that will be capable of revolving, text input, etc. I am confused as to how saving a drawing file and a block works. Do I have to save individual drawing files with individual blocks (and you can't name the block the same as the dwg. file I noticed.) Or can I make one dwg and save several blocks? I would like to organize my blocks by folder ie. details, elevations, layout, title.. I'm far from it, but I read on the internet that attributes can be opened up in one excel file and easily changed there, and then updated in my drawings. Is this possible in LT and is it useful? Also, I'm having trouble understanding how to import my block, do I have to import the dwg file? As you can tell, I'm totally lost, if you guys have suggestions or commands or anything that would be great. I generally read threads and learn new commands and new ways of doing things and that seems to be the most helpful. Also, what is the best way to organize my blocks?? Thanks to anyone who attempts to help!
