Quickly editing custom drawing properties


Recommended Posts

Hey guys,


I use the custom tab in the DWG properties in all of my drawings to auto-fill fields on title blocks and some other things. There are about 17 custom values that are entered every time and I cannot figure out if there is a good way to quickly edit these without meticulously clicking on each one individually with the mouse.




Pressing [TAB] just cycles through the "Add", "Delete", "OK", etc buttons.

The arrow keys let you move the blue selection up and down, but I can't see any way to actually edit what is selected. Typing just selects the Named value that matches your input.


Not a big deal if it is impossible but it would be nice to save a bit of time here going back and forth between the mouse and keyboard.

You should be able to edit the info directly. This is close to revealing where its hidden.

I hadn't planned on using LISP to tackle this, but I will take a closer look at it when I get some free time. Thank you for the head-start.
