  • I would use point filters, which are activated when entering coordinates in commands such as move or copy by typing a period (".") followed by "x", "y", or "z", or a pair thereof. For your example: m (Move) Select entities to move: [choose your …
  • The global scaling factor is called "Dim scale overall". You can find it under "Fit" properties, either via Drawing Explorer where you can edit the dimension style definition (see screenshot below), or via Properties where you can override the scale…
  • Thank you, both. This is a workable solution. Perhaps with the additional benefits of logfiles, which I hadn't known how to access, I may forget about wanting separate in-session command histories.
  • Hans, that is helpful to learn about dragging model views from the Content Browser. However, it only addresses one part—perhaps the easiest part—of what Steve is trying to do. I, too, have been trying to figure out how to make use of fields to refe…
  • Cool! Thank you for sharing, Knut. I had given up on batting-type linetypes for the reason Tom described, and was resorting to lengths of batting pasted in as blocks, scaled to adjust thickness, and tediously xclipped as needed.
  • That works! And helpful to know "Append Tool" for other unlisted commands. Thank you.
  • Fair enough. What I should have written was, Why can't I "pick first" with LayMCur? I can "pick first" with AI_MOLC, as I noted, so long as my preselection set contains only one element. I understand why both commands discard preselection sets of …
  • Why doesn't LayMCur work with PICKFIRST=1 for ON? It is nearly always the case that I have already selected some entity and decide to make its layer the current layer, either because I'm in the middle of working or simply because by selecting it fi…
  • After refclose, run attsync to display new attributes, or changes to attribute positions, definitions, etc.
  • I don't know of such an option for dmrotate. However, here is another way: If you select a solid (or any entity, or entities), grips will appear. Then left click to select any one of the grips. Now you are in *** STRETCH *** mode, and there are som…
  • I, too, have been routinely annoyed by undo affecting every action, and madly frustrated if I happen to scroll or zoom a bit during undoing, attempt to reverse, and get scolded: "There is nothing to redo." For me, what I'd prefer to be inconsequent…
  • @Roy Klein Gebbinck I generally do work with _dmPushPull and other direct modeling commands, using _tk as needed (usually without troubles). I like the Tab key cycle options—that's a timesaver! Thank you. @RoatanBill Sorry I've no help with your…
  • (Using V18.2.20) I can use dmDistance3d, select the top and bottom faces of a rectangular solid, and then specify distance value to change the height. However, this seems to work only the first time I use dmDistance3d on any given pair of faces. …
  • I also ran into this issue and it was starting to drive me mad. Entering a period (hard stop) after the first word of any line of MText was triggering an indent and extra spacing that I couldn't seem to remove. My workaround was to enter all text wi…
