Saving Formats in Template


Recommended Posts

I have created a template that saves the standard layers and the Dimension styles and Viewport that I use.

 

On my practice exercises, I use a lot of POINTS as markers, and select the Menu Bar /Format/Point Styles to select an appropriate Point style.

 

Can anyone please tell me how to save this Point formatting, so I don't have to re-do it every time for a new drawing?

Sorry, stupid question. I just opened my custom template, did the Point format, and saved the template, overwriting the original. Not thinking well after a couple of hours in a dentists chair today :(

PDMODE I think is what your after

 

(defun c:PTY ()
(setvar 'pdmode 35) ; turn on ptype
(setvar 'pdsize 0.2)
)
(defun c:PTYY () ; turn off ptype
(setvar 'pdmode 0)
)

You can create ACADDOC.lsp and it will set any System Variables as you want them on opening a drawing.

 

SEE THIS

 

 

 

Example:

 

(SETVAR "PDMODE" 35)
(SETVAR "PDSIZE" 5)
(SETVAR "PELLIPSE" 1)
(SETVAR "PICKADD" 2)
(SETVAR "PICKAUTO" 1)
(SETVAR "PICKDRAG" 1)
(SETVAR "PICKFIRST" 1)

 

It can also load any LISP routine.
