Jim: I had no trouble selecting any or all of the 9 xlines inside the viewport. Are you sure you were in the viewport?
Tom: There's a rectangular pline on top of the viewport, and the viewport itself is on a locked and hidden layer.
It works in my v17 if I change "textEdit" to "DDedit."(Quote)
Are you talking about an old version of Autocad? When I first switched to Bricscad, long ago, I was pleasantly surprised to find that the colors in any PDF file I created looked the same as in the DWG file. In Autocad, I'd always had t…
When a leader is selected, the Properties panel has a "Type" property (see attached file) that matches what Cicilia wrote.
I can't find it in the Dimension Styles Editor, nor in Settings, so I don't think there's a way to create a default…
Can you post a .dwg file with that leader in it? I won't be able to open a v21 file, but maybe someone else will open it and try to confirm what you're seeing. If they see the same thing, you'll have to file a support request. But maybe they'll s…
The Copy command isn't supposed to involve the clipboard, so that would be a very strange error message. The CopyClip and CopyBase commands both put the selected entities on the system clipboard. With CopyBase, you have to pick a base point. If y…
Could you open the files in Bricscad v10 and let that lisp function process it?
Usually a Bricscad license entitles you to use any older version.(Quote)
Why would you explode the block? Just edit it, or edit a copy of the block, one that's placed off to the side so you can get at it without diving through the rest of the model, or make it a separate file, x-ref'd in.(Quote)
Bas, I'm still not clear on what you want the custom command to do, but you're welcome to this if it helps. It rotates the selection set 90° about its centroid. It leaves the selection set still selected, so you can just keep pressing …
It would be easy to create such a command, but tell us more about exactly what you want it to do.
If you want a command that rotates the selection set 90° about its centroid each time you press a key, I already have that. And one that fli…
Another problem with the crude version above is that it can only select the newest entity at the pick point. This one is just as crude, but it accepts the entity selection and the base point pick separately. So it lets you select something that's…(Quote)
Creating that custom command would take me too long, but here's a crude alternative. Instead of picking the corner you want to stretch, you pick the opposite corner -- i.e. the base point of the rubber-banding. This command doesn't rea…
Mike, I think those are just robocheck questions. They probably figured .dwg users would already know the answers, but anyone can google them (Anagnost and Hexagon). The Swamp is a great forum, very Briscad-friendly, and those True Rectangle comm…(Quote)
Ah, that's it -- I just didn't give it a chance. Thanks again.
I have English version 17, but my Help files say there's no RECTANGLE command, only RECTANG. The in 2D : Rectangle (?) Comment by Anthony Apostolaros May 28
Thanks, Roy, but I don't understand. I don't know what a reactor is, and when I use that PL2REC command on a rectangular polyline (drawn with the RECTANG command), I don't see any change. The entity's properties don't change, and dragging a corne…(Quote)
I don't think it does exist. I've searched for it but didn't find anything. I thought about writing one myself, but I'm very slow at lisp coding and it would take me several days. There are people on this forum who could do it in a few…
Another way to get that ability to drag one corner of a rectangle while keeping it as a rectangle would be with a lisp-based custom command. The user would start by picking a corner of a rectangle, and the function would then check to make sure …
I use two layout schemes, and F5 toggles between them. Also, MM toggles between modelspace and paperspace, and BB toggles background color between black and white, in either space.
But most of my customization is:
It sounds like you have "CC" assigned to Ctrl-C in the Keyboard tab of the Tools>Customize palette, but nothing assigned to "CC" in the Command Aliases tab of that palette.
If so, just change the "CC" in the Keyboard tab to "CopyClip."…(Quote)
It would be easy to write a lisp function that checks the version each time a file is opened, and makes that adjustment when appropriate. It would take me quite a while to do it, and I have no use for it, but there are people on this …
