  1. I am currently drawing my plans and realised the template: "Tutorial-mArch.dwt" is an A1 Paper Size. I can only print A4 pages so when I compressed it to a A4, the layout of title box simply goes out of scale. How do I scale those? How do I fix it? If you do not mind me asking more, how do I make my title box (name scale on my own? I am a beginner, step by step method will be appreciated. PS: I do not know how to add texts box. So if you can tell me that as well that would be 2 birds in one stone.
  2. I have a lisp that is supposed to create a Polyline box around selected text, trim lines within the box, and then delete the box. I am, however, having some issues getting it to run properly. Everytime I run it, I select the text that I want to use, but I get an error Select Text; error: bad DXF group: (-1 (13.3618 5.59898 0.0)) I am hoping that someone can help me out with this. ;;; This lisp routine creates a box around selected text, trims all entities within the box, and then deletes the box.
