You can edit & tab to next text edit on each of the editors shown above.
Just remember they close differently.

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:

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?
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…
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 …
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.…
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.

Command Aliases are located in the default.pgp file.
Search for default.pgp, looking for the path that includes:
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):
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.
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…
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…
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.
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…
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…
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…
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…
Had the same issues last yr.

A belated thank you for your TMT lisp routine.

Yes, it worked flawlessly!!!
Thank you very much. I returned to these posts today & reali…
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.
Checked the TIF properties, Background Transparency State, ‘Yes…
