Selecting similar to what is visable on screen
3dwannab posted a topic in AutoLISP, Visual LISP & DCLI have the Ctrl+Q set up to select similar. Quite handy when used with another shortcut I've set up Ctrl+H to hide that selection or any other command I wish to invoke after. This works great but I was hoping to know if it's possible for the same standard command of AutoCADs select similar can be done by LISP, only difference being that it only selects whats visible on the monitor. I think it's a long shot asking but worth asking :]. It would be handy for deleting similar stuff just on the screen without having to shift select (de-select) the other items selected. Thanks in advance.
Quick properties dialog box
jdavid10 posted a topic in AutoCAD 2D Drafting, Object Properties & InterfaceAs I draw, whenever I click on an object (e.g. a polyline) a small dialog box appears right next to it. For example: in the drawing below I'm selecting my own polyline which I've made into a line with an arrow tip. Now I select it because I want to change something but the small dialog box appears at the right. If I close the dialog box and click on another object, it shows back up again for whichever new object I'm selecting. This is quite annoying. How can I disable this? Thank you all for your time reading my inquiry. Please help.
