  1. 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?
  2. 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.
  3. 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
  4. 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 Cop
  5. 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.

    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
  8. 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.
  9. 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 ?
  10. 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.
  11. 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 t
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. I would like to modify this lisp script so that the dimension has a centered text instead of on a side of the dimension. But i don't know how. (defun c:HD (/ HD_LineHouse HD_LineProperty HD_Point1 HD_BasePoint1 HD_Text1 HD_Point2 HD_BasePoint2 HD_Text2 HD_ActiveDoc HD_ActiveSpace) (if (and (setq HD_LineHouse (car (entsel "\nSelect house line : "))) (setq HD_LineProperty (car (entsel "\nSelect property boundary: "))) (= (vla-get-ObjectName (setq HD_LineHouse (vlax-ename->vla-object HD_LineHouse))) "AcDbLine") )
  15. 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 ? Than
  16. 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 t
  17. 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. Th
  18. Hello, In this DWG i need to pair text (which is room function) with block attribute "FUNCTION" that i've created. I can do this manually but it's over 1000 blocks ,so that make me wonder is it possible to create LISP which take nearest text into block attribute. I've found that LISP (https://forums.autodesk.com/t5/visual-lisp-autolisp-and-general/add-text-value-to-a-block-attibute/td-p/7949545) but it's swaping texts over rooms for example in room where laboratorium is located it name it biuro which is located next to it. Sorry for my plain english, I'm not native speaker.
  19. Hi, I have recently come up with an idea for a project. And to execute that idea i need to be able to read trough a DWG and perform calculations based on the dimensions of walls, windows, doors and stuff like that. Is there anyway i can save a dwg of a floor plan in some kind of text format so i can write a program that is able to read trough it and identify those elements and perform calculations based on those dimensions? Thank You.

    Text fit lisp

    Hi All, I was wondering if there was a lisp routine out there that when you drop a dtext string into a rectanlge that it would shrink down to fit inside? I looked at the text fit command in the express tools but it only shrinks or stretches the length. Thanks, Brian
  21. Hello, Could you help me with the following question? I would like to filter all the texts and multileaders at Z=0. I could solve it for texts by using the following code, but it does not work for multileaders when I simply change TEXT to MULTILEADER. How could I do it? (sslength (ssget "X" '((0 . "*TEXT") (-4 . "*,*,=") (10 0.0 0.0 0.0)))) Thanks a lot, Cs.
  22. Hopefully I am just unaware of a setting or method for doing this but so far the field command is handy but missing something. Associative updates. When a polyline is drawn and used for calculating the area the field command does a quick job of extracting that info into a field text element. Problem is when that polyline boundary is changed the "field text" that was established previously does not update. Is this even possible or am I S.O.L.?
  23. Hello, I am looking for a .lsp that will allow me to insert a titleblock of a different size and run a command on the existing titleblock and click on the new titleblock and it will retain all the same information (even with text fields) and copy over the information into the new titleblock without having to fill out the new titleblock. Our titleblocks use mostly fields but the project name, address, drawing number and drawing name have just regular attribute text objects. This would be a huge time saver if I have to take something that was originally on a 22x34 titleblock and resize t
  24. Hello all, I would like to know if anybody has any bright ideas about a problem I face when drawing building elevations in 3D. I use 3D polylines to survey a facade on site. When back in the office I get an output of a 3D polyline with a point and node at each surveyed point. The point is aligned to 3d *top* view. I then rotate the current view aligned to the required building facade. My question is twofold: 1) Is there a way of rotating the point to see the point style in the current view? 2) As my point information plots in 3D as point, point number, and elevation is there a lis
