Selecting objects in a script

Zoe the 3rd

Recommended Posts



I'm new to scripting, I dabbled a bit in AutoLisp years ago, but since my new AutoCAD LT doesn't support lisps I haven't retained that knowledge. Anyway...


I am trying to write a script that will use the MOVE command and displace an object by a set distance. (I have to do this thousands of times over.) However I do not know how to select the object from with in the script. Anyone know how to do that?

Nope. They are usually rectangles or polylines.


I'm also now looking into macros... I know zip-diddly about macros, but they seam like they might work. The macro gets to the user input easy enough, but then I don't know how to get it back to running my selections.


So far I have: ^C^Cmove \d0,-20


but it stops after the \ and won't go back to my selection of "d".
