  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. Hello, So, here's the scoop: I'm drafting a property survey, obviously beginning in 1:1 scale. Now, this has to fit on a predefined viewport which rests on an 11 x 17 sheet. The only way I can get it to fit is by scaling the drawing to 1:30 or 1:20 scale within model space. Any clues as to how this can be done? A million thanks in advance! Cheers!
  3. Hey all, I'm setting up some plan and profiles (I DON'T HAVE CIVIL3D) with MAP3D. I have a couple of autolisp routines to help with the profile grid, but one thing that confuses me, the grid should be in paper space and the vertical scale set based on paper space, right? I'm assuming that the actual contours/polylines (once I have them georeferenced) will go in model space. Thanks for any tips,
  4. Hi there. I've created a .cui file for my business unit, but I'm having an issue which I'm not sure how to solve. I have created a pull down with text scales and dims scales, so depending on the scale of drawing you are using, you will always have a uniform text to use. (Annotative text can't be used due to client restrictions). Now, I originally had the text set to romanS, but upon a discussion, we now need to use arial narrow. It looks better and takes up less room, apparently. CAD doesn't have an SHX file for this, so I have used the Windows TTF and renamed it to arialn, as that i
  5. If I used millimeters as my UNITS, how can I scale them when plotting it into A1 or A0? How will I know the scale that I will use in Layout tab so that it will fit on the paper that I will used?a
  6. I've been "fixing" ADesk's stuff-up ... or trying to for a while now. But I'm hitting my head against one feature: Adding a Scale to an Object without using the -ObjectScale command. The reason I want to not use the command is that I want it to work inside of blocks as well. Now it seems reasonably easy when it comes to blocks/text/mtext. Where it gets difficult is with dimensions, hatching & mleaders. Attached is what I have so far. You may need some code in the Caddons Suite to run this as it uses some libraries from there. Most of it works reasonably, the function I've got probl
  7. I find annotative scales useful for text and for dimensions but what annoys me is that when the scale is changed, it affects the linetypes globally once a regen is performed. For text, dims, hatch etc, you are able to choose whether or not to make an object annotative, is there a way of opting out when it comes to linetypes? Even though the annotative function has been around for a few years now, it still seems like AutoDesk have done a half-job on it. With both the Global LTS & Annotative scales able to alter linetypes globally, surely (1) LTS should simply be phased out, or (2) ther
  8. I am trying to draw details at multiple scales in one drawings, ex. 3"=1'-0", 1 1/2"=1'-0", 3/4"=1'-0" and have come across a problem. I am only allowed to have one ltscale per drawing, so how can I make the lines (dashed lines, centerlines, etc.) show up correctly???
