  • @James Maeding You can edit & tab to next text edit on each of the editors shown above. Just remember they close differently. DDATTE: need to "Tab, Tab, Enter" to exit from keyboard. Attribute Editor: Requires extra Enter to exit from key…

  • In BCAD Version 19.2.14 DDATTE editing the Title Block. Good for simple smart text edits. Works similar to ACAD except need to "Tab, Tab, Enter" to exit from keyboard. Double clicking on the TB produces the Attribute Editor: For smart text edi…

  • The Layer Snapshot setting seems to be defaulted as YES in the VIEW dialog box. SAVELAYERSNAPSHOT doesn't seem to turn if off when looking in the VIEW dialog box. Is there a sysvar setting to turn it of globally?
  • Roy, And (arx) returns this: ("td_dynblocks_19.5_15.tx" "plotstyleservices_19.5_15.tx" "td_sm_19.5_15.tx" "dbconstraints_19.5_15.tx" "lgsconstraints_19.5_15.tx" "acmodeldocobj_19.5_15.tx" "td_dbjoinentitype_19.5_15.tx" "exfieldevaluator_19.5_15.t…
  • @Lavender20, APPLOAD: Only shows lisp routines loaded w/ the APPLOAD command. Any lisp routines manually loaded such as drag & drop into a current BricsCAD session will not show up here. (This is very similar to the APPLOAD dialog box in Aca…
  • Anthony Apostolaros, Very cool lisp routine; now have an H2 & H3 (selgrips option) added to the toolbox. Thank you. Mike
  • @Lavener20, Running V19 APPLOAD produces this: (Appload - LISPs.png) Do you get something different? Or is it literally a “list” you were looking for? Mike
  • Try renaming the *.PCP file to *.CTB; After renaming *.PCP to *.CTB it opened in the Plot Style Table Editor. Mike
    in PCP to CTB Comment by MDunn September 26
  • Joe, W/ the CTB file ALWAYS printing ALL yellow as black, it is actually quite handy; so if we get a dwg using yellow, it always prints black. One of our CAD Standards is text is on layer TEXT, color BYLAYER, & one way to check the vendor or …
  • Joe Dunfee, Ah, the forever disputed topic, white or black background. My boss is a firm believer as you, that white is the best background color. I am a traditionalist, black is mobetta. I have used exclusively yellow text for the last 25 yrs.…
  • katrein, Turned on the Ribbon to access the Parametric commands (always off, don’t see a need for it wasting screen real estate); as I use the CommandLine exclusively because it is faster than picking all the pulldowns, etc. Created a rectangle w…
  • Brian77, Command Aliases are located in the default.pgp file. Search for default.pgp, looking for the path that includes: …\AppData\Roaming... The key is to look for the *.pgp file w/ “\Roaming\” in the path. Don’t be fooled, because there is…
  • If you like CommandLine entry, you will most likely gravitate to LISP routines; like command aliases on steroids. As an example, to toggle back & forth between Model Tab & Layout Tab (Tilemode 1 or 0): ;T1T0.lsp (filename) ;TILEMODE QUICK…
  • Anthony, You were definitely onto something. Could not get STYLE to look to the Simplex.shx file & was baffled as to how to make it work, until I realized the support file search paths were not changed in my upgrade to V19. C:\Program F…
  • Anthony: Not sure actually. In STYLE it shows: Text Style: SIMPLEX Saved Font: Simplex Text Style: Standard Saved Font: simplex1.shx In AutoCAD we could pick between shx fonts & TrueType but I don't see that choice in Bric…
  • Additionally, if Zoomed out, all the fonts have the same "lineweight" intensity.
  • Have nailed it down to being the Simplex font is the problem. See attached for example of how the simplex font is not as bright & distinct as the Standard font. We use Simplex text pretty much exclusively, as I have for the last 25 yrs., so th…
  • CADMebel, Currently set as 2DWireframe, changing to Wireframe of any other visstyle makes it even worse. Did not have this problem w/ V18, recently loaded V19 & that is when this became a problem.
  • Owen, That turns on/off the 'Field' background display, has no effect on other Mtext or Dtext. Me thinks it is something simple, some type of display setting, but I have not been able to figure what it is.
  • Additionally, when hovering over the text, it “brightens”, as it should look normally.
  • Davec, Sorry, don’t have an answer, but I do appreciate what you are going through while trying to still be productive w/ the new release. Just installed V19 on a new PC & have been trying to get all the V18 customizations off my old PC, a tim…
  • Realized the Text Properties attribute 'Lock Position' was 'Yes'. Set to 'No' allows the text grips to be turned on.
  • Jason, That works nicely. However, I notice the Title Block text & notes etc. in Paper Space were a lighter line-weight than the Model Space geometry. Tried it on another dwg, & the PDF was created upside down. Another one, right side u…
  • Jason, Thank you, I have learned LISP on the fly, only dangerous @ it; not expert level, but would like to learn more. Will give your example a try. It has been a wonderment why in AutoCAD when printing a PDF it always created the PDF in the sam…
  • Jason, How does one set it to print to the folder of the currently opened dwg? I don't see an option for that. Mike
  • Peter2, Lisp routine @ bottom of post is how I create PDFs; note it defaults to C:\Users\mdunn\Documents, & I do not know how to change that default either. See attached "PDF print location.PNG" It would be nice to have the PDF created in th…
  • abosveld, Had the same issues last yr. Anthony Apostolaros is right on; check the link he mentions: https://forum.bricsys.com/discussion/33690/txt2mtxt-changing-dtext-to-mtext Go down to the 13th thread. rwills2691’s TMT lisp routine works fl…
  • rwills2691 A belated thank you for your TMT lisp routine. You said: "See if this works for you... ;========== begin text-to-mtext" Yes, it worked flawlessly!!! Thank you very much. I returned to these posts today & reali…
  • Roy, Thanks for the input. As you suggested, attached the ‘problem’ TIF in another hybrid dwg w/ a TIF that prints correctly & the ‘problem’ TIF printed correctly also. Jason, Checked the TIF properties, Background Transparency State, ‘Yes…
