Copy Guided and Move Guided
Has anybody been able to find a use for the above two commands?
I find that you can't select just the items you want and give a reference entity to use as you only get one selection window, that seems to only accept entities that will rotate if you presect them before starting copy/guided.
You have no base points to work with, so if you wanted to copy some entities from one position (indicating a base point initially) to the mid point of say a line, there is no way you can do this.
Attached is a video that initially uses the copy guided command (with no preselection) to try and copy some entities and then a copy rotate lisp routine I use (which obviously doesn't break any entites).
The copyguided in my humble opinion should be able to copy the selected entities I indicated and rotate them 90 degrees once they found the vertical line I wanted to reference and then position them like the original position but rotated and preferably in the centre of the reference line (which I should be able to indicate with a snap reference.
The move guided is the same, there is no way of referencing the move to a new position without taking measurements of where entities need to end up and then feeding this into the measurement box once you start copy/guide, move/guided.
There is no way I can see that I can do this.
I appreciate that I could be doing it all wrong, so would happily like to be proved wrong.
Many Thanks in advance.
