  • Horia, If you look at Shape(free) as being a replacement of Revit (±3.000/year) or even ArCADia (±500 Euro /year) then no wonder you're disappointed. However, I'm not sure why you would think Shape is anything other then a rough modeler. Professi…
  • @Roy Klein Gebbinck @Jason Bourhill Roy, unfortunately your solution just make my Bricscad 'hang' which means I have to give it a hard shutdown. Jason, yours works nicely My thanks to both of you nonetheless.
  • @rkmcswain said: I opened the Content Browser, and exported all of the sysvars. Then I closed the Content Browser and exported all of the sysvars. Then I compared to the two lists of sysvars and there is no difference, so apparently ther…
  • Oh I see. There's of course a big difference if something is meant for use in company or for customers where indeed you have far less control what they have running, what additional add-ons they have or even which version of Bricscad they have. Th…
  • Perhaps I don't understand the question but.... Why not just drag&drop it in the sequence you want while using the customize interface ? Open Customize, open workspaces, select the workspace in question, open up the menus and just drag and dro…
  • Mathieu, Thank you kindly, that was just the information I was looking for.
  • We only using Bricscad for 2d DWG's. In V18 I hardly had an issue but in V19 I, as well as my colleagues, notice random crashing. Nothing any of us can put a finger on concerning the cause because it happens in all kinds of circumstances. I say cras…
  • An easier solution, if it's about changing background colours to another autocad color, make a new button on a toolbar and in the command line box put in $M=$(if,$(and,$(getvar,BKGCOLOR),256),BKGCOLOR;251,BKGCOLOR;256) The above will toggle you…
  • 1 workaround is using the LISP routine X2O that is available on the internet. See for instance : https://lispbox.wordpress.com/2014/11/25/change-all-xrefs-status-from-overlay-to-attach-x2a-visa-versa-x2o/
  • Never mind. Found it, I think. Dragsnap needs to be 1.
  • @fs_at12 Thank you kindly. Much appreciated.
  • @ Teradyne screenshot 1 = acad screenshot 2 = bricscad The only difference I see is that indeed the values get shown at the lower right of the cursor and not just at the entity itself. Is there a significance to it if it gets duplicated at the c…
  • Icugura, Not much info to deduce anything Did you try a repair install? Are you sure that you have the correct profile/workspace active? Did you import a profile and if so, did you change anything of the default settings? If yes, then did you co…

  • @Roy Klein Gebbinck Cheers. That works like a charm. Much obliged. Have a nice one PS: got word back from support, it's a known issue and they're working on it.
  • @Roy Klein Gebbinck Thank you, I'll put in a support request.
  • @Charles Alan Butler Thank you for pointing out those LISP routines. Especially the latter two which I hadn't come across before. Have a nice one Peter
  • @Jason Bourhill DUH! Hadn't thought about using the drawing explorer like that. Again, I'm in your debt. Thank you kindly,have a nice one Peter
  • @Jason Bourhill Thank you for the explanation. I had tried it earlier but didn't get anything of it to work but this time around I got the toolbars up and running. Most of them work with exception of Layerwalk, yep the one I really want. That one …
  • @Jason Bourhilll I downloaded Expresstools_BricscadV18 and when opening the zip I see this As you can see, there's no .lsp file in sight but instead it's mainly .dll - .des - .brx type of files. There for I would love to hear how I would be abl…
  • @Anthony Apostolaros BTW, I tried and as indicated in the requirements, Express tools does indeed NOT work on Classic because it doesn't allow for .des files or .BRX type of files. Are you sure you have Classic and not Pro or even Platinum ?
  • @Anthony Apostolaros said: @Peter_DV said: ... I can't use Expresstools (only have Bricscad Classic) ... I think it should work, possibly depending on which version of Classic you have. I have v17 Classic, and Express Tool…
  • MDunn, Is the one from Sofoco tools fail in the same manner as the one from Expresstools? I can't use Expresstools (only have Bricscad Classic) so I can't compare them myself. see TXT2MTXT on : https://bricsys.com/applications/a/?sofoco-tools-a…
  • Austrobass, Can you clarify what you mean with 'keeping layers selected' when switching viewports? Did you check out if setting up a filter in the LayerControl can't do what you want.
  • Groovybowl, Did you try using the built in PDF printer ?
  • @PBW4 In general when something like that happens it helps if you do an "audit" on the offending file itself. In other words, open the external referenced file by itself and perform an audit on it to see if it finds and repairs any errors in it's d…
  • Hear, hear. Often it occurs that one is browsing with Windows Explorer through a folder hunting down for something where the title of the drawing isn't descriptive of the actual contents. Especially when coming from 3rd parties. When we used acad t…
  • After a few restarts it was once more automatically alphabetically ordered.
  • @Steven_g grr I tried that. As soon as I noticed that pressing 'ESC' worked, it was the first thing that I tried. And it didn't seem to work. Now it does. Thank you kindly. Have a nice one.
  • @Steven_g the additional ";" doesn't seem to be doing anything in this case. Besides, even pressing "enter" when the command doesn't finish doesn't do a thing either. The only way I found is by physically pressing the ESC button.
Origami
Origami is the Japanese word for paper folding. ORI means to fold and KAMI means paper and involves the creation of paper forms usually entirely by folding.
