Vision Posted September 18, 2013 Share Posted September 18, 2013 I'm trying to use a script to draw multiple lines (from one to the next) when I have the quadrants (1-4), bearings and distances in a file...but it doesn't resume the line command from the endpoint of the last drawn line--and therefore "tweeks" (at the * in the short sample script below). line 'bd 5000,1000 3 17.5057 164.71* 2 78.072 31 3 10.111 50 3 19.2147 116 4 66.215 297 Any hints on forcing it to keep drawing, as it does when I hand enter these commands? NOTE: The nice thing I DID learn is that you can bi-pass the [.P .N .G] choices by just putting in the x,y coordinates to start, "tricking" it to thinking you used your mouse. However, the script works for the beginning, but doesn't behave the same as my hand entered commands, but shows the following: Specify first point: 'bd >>Select starting point or [.P/.N/.G]: 5000,1000 Quadrants - NE = 1, SE = 2, SW = 3, NW = 4 >>Specify quadrant (1-4): 3 Current direction unit: degree, Input: DD° MM' SS.SS" (spaced) >>Specify bearing: 17.5057 >> >>Specify distance: 164.71 Resuming LINE command. Specify first point: Specify next point or [undo]: 2 Specify next point or [undo]: 78.072 Zero length line created at (5224.647, 81.665, 0.000) Specify next point or [Close/Undo]: 31 Zero length line created at (5224.647, 81.665, 0.000) Specify next point or [Close/Undo]: Enter BACKSPACE to interrupt script. Command: 3 Unknown command "3". Press F1 for help. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
