Parse text information into a pasteclip routine
wing posted a topic in AutoLISP, Visual LISP & DCLI've got an idea for an autolisp routine. I'd like to select text or mtext objects with bearing and distance (in metric units of course) and generate a paste_clip that I can paste into. i.e.: I click on a text that has 12%%d01'10" as its text content. I click on a text that has 10.01 as its text content. repeat for other segments I press on c or esc to end the input. I get a "nice" paste_clip on my mouse cursor where I specify the insertion point (The first line segment being 12°01'10" orientation and 10.01 for its length.) Being a novice autolisp programmer, can somebody point me in the right direction please? I have some experience with outputting text, lines and points but this is a bit tougher. A polyline would be nicer to have but I don't mind a series of lines too at this stage.
