  1. Hi, Written a tool for replacing (updating) blocks. Had some spare time untill my boss recently used the W-word again (work , yak!) Anywayz , its a prototype so I'm not sure its stable and safe yet because I only did some lab testing. I hope it will be usefull. Not sure if I will be able to work on it further any time soon because I still have a few ideas and wishes. gr. Rlx RlxBlk manual.doc RlxBlk.lsp RlxBlk.dcl
  2. I know there's a bunch of posts on this but I could never find a lisp that could incorporate all, or multiple. lisps that can..auto run w/ ea. .dwg opened, redefine & replace multiple referenced blocks (about 10) keeping original location, & retaining attributes..w/o any prompts..I could be asking too much but any insight is greatly appreciated..I'm on hr 7 on this one..if it's easier..only one block has attributes and can make a separate lisp for that..or again if easier make a separate lisp for ea block..anything put together really that auto runs w/o prompts.. If u think I missed a post like this please let me know..again I really appreciate it
  3. I have a block with a flip action to move text from one side of the block to the other. We've revised the block and I'm using Insert/Redefine to update the drawings. The problem is, the flip action reverts to default and I have to flip them back. Is there a way I can lock the position of the flip before I Insert/Redefine? Many thanks for any help.
  4. Hello everybody, I've created a macro for creating different dimension styles for different scales. We are using these dimension styles in our company. It works well if I use it in a new, empty drawing. But if I use it in an excisting drawing with a dimension style with the same name, I have got a problem..... I'll see this in the command line; "Enter name for new dimension style or [?]: "scale 20" That name is already in use, redefine it? :_dimclrd Invalid option keyword. That name is already in use, redefine it? :" "_dimclrd" should be the next command in the macro, but because "scale 20" is already in use, I need to do some other commands first. AutoCad stops with this macro at this point. If the first dimension style, which the macro should be create, already in use, the other dimension styles shall not be create. Is there a possibility/ sollution to change my macro so he creates every dimension style what he supposed to do? Also if one or more dimension styles already excist? The reason why; if you delete a dimension style because you think; "I don't need him any more." But you're wrong. Or somebody else goes further with the drawing and needs to draw something with another scale. You need to copy the 'wanted' dimension style from another (new/ excisting) drawing. Could somebody help me?

  5. Hi guys, long time no post. I have a LOT of drawings all with the same block in and I have updated the block so therefore want to redefine all the blocks, ...as you do. I only have autocad LT 2010 so havent got the LISP coding option. I am trying to do it by assigning the following example code to a button and running it. The only problem is it doesn't run it properly... block name for example is 'box' C^C^_-insert;box=C:\users\michael\desktop\box.dwg;y;C^C^ All the individual lines work when typed but when used in the button macro it stops at: C^C^_-insert;box=C: ...and doesnt accept the backslash and so stops the macro from continuing. How can I get it to run a file path??? this is doing my swede in
  6. is there a command to redefine/update mulitple wblock?
