  1. Our company uses "hand" as the style for all our projects. I need to import a table from excel with excel formatting. After I change all the text to "hand" style I can't figure out how to change the font. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
  2. Hello, I have created a table within AutoCAD. I have written some words in cell "A1", I would like to display the same words in another cell using an equation "=A1". When I type the "=A1" equation the cell displays "####" Is there anyway to make this work? possibly using fields? Thanks

  4. Hi all. I hope everybody is safe during this Covid-19 pandemic. I need some help. How do i move the text (BEFORE picture) and create a new line? The distance between the text is fix or as long as user can read it. How do i create the lines? I'm new to Autolisp, so please avoid giving example in Visual Lisp (vlx). Thanks.
  5. When I am using UCS by object and for that selecting the text it shows Z axis on text. but in the text properties it is not there if I change the value of Z also nothing changing same problem exist. Not only the UCS, when i am using Lee Mac Align Text to Curve it is not coming properly. for that I am fixing the problem am using Lee Mac Text2MText Upgraded with single selection or explode the text and making again Text2MText. while flattening the text is self-exploding. for this how can i remove all text z axis value at single time.....???? Test.dwg
  6. I found valuable lisp for auto creation block. I want to improve this lisp to following requirement * block selected object individually, not in one block thanks AUTO-BLOCK.LSP
  7. Hi, I would like to know some help. 01 - Is there a possibility in this Lee Mac lisp, Automatically Label Attributes, that it can be changed so that every time I open a different file it asks me about the increment, prefix and suffix settings? Because in the current way it always loads the pre-configuration that is already in lisp. I don't want to have to edit the lisp to configure the numbers for each file. Note: I use attributed blocks and multileader blocks. 02 - I also use the Lisp Incremental Numbering Suite, I would like to know if the option for multileaders can be added. As the current options are only for text, mtext and blocks. For my use multileaders are more interesting. Because the use of block with attributes will have to be manually making the leader lines to indicate their positions and references after their insertion and when you have many blocks end up wasting valuable time. I would like to know if it is possible to make any of these changes, since lisps have many lines. Note: Sorry for the google translation. #NumIncV3-9.lsp AutoLabelAttributesV1-4.lsp
  8. hello everyone , hope u all doing so great ... my problem here that i want easy way to insert numbers in autocad without trying to make texts or adjust them .. i wanna lisp make the number i press from keyboard be inserted into text or mtext and i just click the location of that text in cad ... hope somebody could help me in this ... thanks in advance

    Text Won't Rotate

    This mtext won't rotate. When I use the rotate command, the text moves around a point, but stays right side up the whole time. I remember this happening with xrefs as well. Anyone know what's happening here?
  10. I re-opened a dgn I haven't touched in months and when I started looking at the text all of the labels/text changed their style to 'Fancy'. I opened up other dgn's from different projects and every single one is 'Fancy' text. I recently updated Microstation (update 15) but not sure if this has anything to do with it. Is there anyway to revert these text changes?
  11. I'm looking for a lisp command that can quick swap text between two objects, be they text, mtext, or multi-leader text. So upon running, you click on the two objects, and the text from object A moves to object B, and the text from object B moves to object A, where object A and object B can be different object types.
  12. please refer the attached cad file below. on the left is output text given by software at specific x, y distance from center of the circle. i need a lisp routine that will produce results similar to what i have mentioned on right side so that drawing will be easy to read. i have done this manually, but it will take days to complete like this as area is too big. THE TEXT SHOULD NOT OVERLAP TO EACH OTHER AS WELL AS NEARBY POLYLINES. Please help ASAP. Thank You. Drawing1.dwg
  13. As posted over at theSwamp, I thought I'd post it here for you guys also CopyText.lsp The program will allow a user to copy the text content from a source object to a selection of destination objects or swap the text content between two objects. The user may select from Text, MText, Attribute, or Multileader objects. Upon choosing 'Settings' the user can alter whether source object formatting should be retained upon copying/swapping to/with objects which permit the use of such formatting. Ideas/criticism/feedback are, as always, welcome Enjoy! Lee CopySwapTextV1-6.lsp
  14. I saw this autolisp from Lee Mac on this forum, this lips routine allows to change existing text to anything instantly, i would like to know if any body wants to help me to make this lisp routine to select top text and change it then select bottom text and change it instantly too, thank you very much in advance, I have # at top of pipe reducer and a # at bottom of the reducer too, so I need to type 330 and click on the # top text and change to 3" then click on the bottom # and changed to 300, thank you again from Mr, Lee Mac but it work only on one text at the time. (defun c:req ( / ent enx ) (while (progn (setvar 'errno 0) (setq ent (car (entsel))) (cond ( (= 7 (getvar 'errno)) (princ "\nMissed, try again.") ) ( (null ent) nil) ( (not (wcmatch (cdr (assoc 0 (setq enx (entget ent)))) "TEXT,MTEXT")) (princ "\nPlease select a text or mtext object.") ) ( (entmod (subst '(1 . "REQUIRED") (assoc 1 enx) enx))) ) ) ) (princ) )
  15. Hey guys I found this LISP routine that allows me to change text in a drawing to anything I specify. Works great, however. My question is how do I code in here so the text updates dynamically as I click on them, instead of dashing them and waiting for user to hit enter for the changes to appear. (defun c:req ( / v1 v2 v3 newtx nme oldtx) (setvar "cmdecho" 0) (prompt "\nPick text to be changed.") (setq v1 (ssget '((0 . "TEXT")) )) (setq newtx "REQUIRED") (setq newtx (cons 1 newtx)) (setq v2 0) (if (and v1 newtx) (while (< v2 (sslength v1)) (setq nme (ssname v1 v2)) (setq oldtx (assoc 1 (entget nme))) (setq v3 (entget nme)) (entmod (subst newtx oldtx v3)) (entupd nme) (setq v2 (+ v2 1)) ) ) )

    shorten text string

    Hello all, I have a file where the height of certain points is annotated as text. The precision is 0.0001 which is too much. I have like for example a text line containing 13.6489. Would it be possible to adapt all text entities at once? and maybe even a correct round off? If i could shorten the string to 13.64 that would be ok, but even better would be 13.65 If not, there are also blocks (crosses) which have the height as Z attribute. Is it possible to extract that Z coordinate and annotate it? Thanks in advande
  17. I want to change the text "A" in my dynamic block to "B,C,D,E,..." When i click on a blue arrow. and the text "16 A" to "20 A , 25 A, ..." When i click on another blue arrow. what is the best way to do this ?
  18. Hello Everyone! I am using vanilla AutoCAD 2017. I have recently done a hydrographic survey, so I have a drawing full of depths (text). Wondering if anyone can point me to a lisp routine that can color code the text based on a range. For example any depths between 10 and 20 is green or any depths between 20 and 30 are red. Thanks in advance.
  19. Hi to all. I've learned alot from this forum and i manage to make a lisp by reading this forum. But for this matter (refer image), i have no idea how to do it. I know about GETDIST to get the distance (setq Dd (getdist "\nPick first point)) and it will print out 30. 1. How do i make a line with length (user input) with datum of a value (user input)? 2. How do i created the text ( distance, level and additional text such as cut area) under the line? Let say i want to enter the length (or height?) as 20.0 with a caption. I want to enter the value and caption with a comma between the word (e.g: 20.0,borderline). 3. If i only enter only the value (no caption), how do i use the value ( car, caddr ?) and LISP will still accept it. 4. How do i space the gap between distance (0.00) and height ( 20.0). 5. Should i use GETPOINT fot the first point or straight away GETDIST to create the text? Thank for your answer and time. I've no knowledge on VL@ActiveX, can you please guide me using non VL sample.
  20. I have this block of text as you can see in the image below, and in the window show me this "VIGA V-SS01 (.25X .50)", BUT I DONT WANT THAT SHOW ME THIS. I want to the program ask me a question first, for example: What is the name? so I will set the answer of this question in the block I have. SO, I want to have this in the window "VIGA V- (AND THE ANSWER OF THE QUESTION)" EXAMPLE: Computer: What is the name? User write: L22 Then, that will show me: "VIGA V- L22" I will glad if you can help me, If you have already notice, I dont know to much about the topic.
  21. Im beginner, I have this: (setq p1 (getpoint "\nPunto Inicial:")) (setq p2 (polar p1 (* 1.5 pi) 0.5)) (entmakex (list '(0 . "line") (cons 10 p1) (cons 11 p2) '(62 . 2))) So, the line I drawn is the yellow one below in the image. And, the text I want put is the magenta one. how can I do this? Thanks for your help

  23. Hi guys & gals, I came across a very repetitive problem. While working with a certain type of software data is output to *.dxf as set of 3D polylines and text. From the level of software I work with, I cannot configure any text formatting details. Hence an idea to ask You few questions. 1. Is there any way of rotating text based on azimuth of a 3Dpolyline which lies within 0.3m distance from the text base? Did someone ever came across LISP of this type ? 2. is there any other (more effective) way than OVERKILL to get a rid of duplicated text ? Thank you in advance ! Regards, Adam, Geophysicist.
  24. I have a block with about 60 single-line text entities, 40 of which have a place holder character that needs to change based on how the block is used. For example, "~1a" and "~1b" need to change to "P1a" and "P1b", where "~" is the place holder and "P" is the letter for this 1 block. The next instance of the same block will need a different letter. This is not a good application for attributes. I found Lee Mac's LISP c:ReplaceBlockText in this thread using vlax-for, but it appears to work on the block definition and changes the text for every instance of the block in the drawing. I need this to work on 1 selected instance of the block. Any help is appreciated, even if it's a point in the right direction.
  25. Hi Writers! here i am again with new question. I am looking for a lisp to Offset line by a selection set values. i really wanted to get an intersection point after offsetting so that i can draw circle at each intersection. but i have values till outer of circle, i know the radius of circle. Process may be like this. Select Values Get Circle radius from user add with selected values select Line offset in positive direction by added values repeat once to offset another line. please help me to find a lisp.
