Blissful_Sloth posted a topic in AutoCAD LTHello, This is my first post here. I've used AutoCAD on and off since my junior year of high school. However, now that I'm using AutoCAD every day at an internship, I figured it was time to brush up on some info, especially shortcuts to boost productivity. I'm wondering if there is a way to configure my profile so that i can input both feet and inches just with the numpad, i.e. skipping the apostrophe. Is there a way to have one of the keys on the numpad (I'm thinking asterisk) become a shortcut for feet? As of right now I'm creating floor plans for an existing house from measurements I took and inputting them into CAD, so it's lots of repetitive movement for me to reach over to asterisk every time I input a dimension. Being able to type "12*8" instead of "12'8", for example, would save me a lot of time. Thanks!
Polisson posted a topic in AutoCAD LTHello, Firstly,Sorry for my English and I admit I'm addicted to making enhancements in CAD drawing I'm looking for quiet simple way to copy current layout and move it to end using only some commands. I know "Move or Copy..." dialog box method but I need to do exactly the same thing using commandline. What for? I've prepared little button which places boundary of viewport in model space and copies current layout with increased number like 'Layout1 (2)'. It's very useful with long maps projects (for example: creating 200 same layouts of trace/route). Button works fine except placing duplicated layout tab behind current one. So generating another copy of layout I get reversed order. I don't know is it clear so let me explain: my first layout is named 'Sheet(1)' duplicating with my button, after this I have two tabs: 'Sheet(1)' 'Sheet(2)' duplicating with my button again, after this I have three tabs: 'Sheet(1)' 'Sheet(3)' 'Sheet(2)' As you can see 'Sheet(3) is misplaced and performing action again and again gives ...'Sheet(5)' ..(4) ..(3) ..(2)... With hundreds of layouts I need to rearrange them somehow. With publish option is so painful . Button is based on this tip and using this command: [font=helvetica][font=courier new]^C^C_pspace;_boundary;[color=red]100[/color],[color=red]100[/color];;_chspace;_l;;_layout;_c;;;[/font][/font] Note that works only on viewports that are placed somewhere about 100x100 units (it doesn't matter on layouts with only one maximized vport bigger than 100x100 - red values in code above). I am not geek yet so I don't know how to find any command performed by dialog box - maybe debug, but how? I am using AutoCAD LT so VBA or LISP is disabled for me. Please help if it possible.
