AutoCad :: Convert Multiple Single Text Objects Into Multiple Mtext Objects

Jul 3, 2013

I have long used the following lisp to convert multiple single text objects into multiple mtext objects (i.e. make each text entity into separate mtext entities).

; T2M - convert individual Texts/Dtexts to individual MTexts
; modified by Xanadu -
(defun C:T2M (/ ss i elist)


However, the mtext entity always moves position slightly (compared to the original text entity) after converting the object. better lisp that converts multiple text entities into mtext entities (which are all separate still, i.e. not joined together) without the position of the entity changing?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Can't Publish Multiple DWG Containing Objects To PDF

Mar 29, 2012

the issue is when i try to publish multiple dwg files which containing civil 3d objects including data ref to pdf it won't do it other whatever drawing is currently open.i kinda can see why. because the data ref reading is not programmed in when "invisibly" opening the cad files. xref are autocad native and it works.

so no warnings or anything. just publish the first one and told me it's done. i've seen this years ago when first started using civil 3d but then i just never complained here.

is there a solution for this? what i did before was obviously open each drawing. then publish, huge waste of time. making me hate my job because of repetative tasks. i almost always try to automate.

yesterday made a program to make one surface for each csv file there was hundres of them and basically 2 hour programming and 1 minute to process the files once got the program working.can read subfolders to find csv file too.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Rotate Multiple Text Objects 180 While Retaining Individual Insertion Points?

Feb 14, 2013

I have numerous text objects I want to rotate 180 while retaining each text objects insertion point.  There's got to be an easy way to do this.

Long explanation:  I created an annotation template to label pipe diameters on an imported shapefile.  Everythings good, labels are parallel with lines, except for the fact that some labels are upside down.  Is there an expression that would eliminate this?  In my annotation template, my rotation expression equals the "angle" field of the object.  My "quick and dirty" fix was to burst the annoation labels, and manually rotate necessary text, which wasn't a huge headache since I'm dealing with a relatively small number of labels, but in the future I might have hundreds of upside down labels.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Assigning Different Scale For Profiles

May 8, 2013

If I have a drawing scale set up as 1"=30' and I created some profiles at that scale, and then I need to create a profile at 1"=40' horiz and 1"=4' vert., what is the best way to do that? I believe in the past I tried changing the drawing scale under settings to 1"=40' one time and all of the profiles in the drawing changed to that same scale even though they were drawn at 1"=30', which I want to stay that way.

I think I can leave the drawing settings to 1"=30 and then just assign the scale in the viewport to 1"=40', but then all of the text sizes in the profile view style will adjust according to the scale I use, which will either increase or decrease according to the scale I pick. I would like to keep the profile view style consistent no matter what scale I pick.

AutoCad :: Can't Select Multiple Items

Jul 21, 2006

No matter what command i try in autocad (move, erase, copy, etc)..i can only select one item at a time. When i choose one item it goes dashed (as they normally do), but when i click the second item the first one i chose goes back to solid and if i press return only the second item i selected if affected. Similarly if i choose 3 items , it forgets the first two and only keeps the third one.. Is this an Autocad options thing or a windows Mouse thing?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Part Building - Assigning Custom Properties

Aug 7, 2012

Is it possible to use a custom properties within part builder to calculate pipe sizes?

Within part builder I have created a new parametric part under the rectangular pipe chapter.

This new parametric will represent a electrical conduit ductbank that will vary in size depending on the number of conduits in the ductbank. For example a 2 x 3 ductbank would have 2 columns and 3 rows of a 3" conduit. So the width and height of the rectangualr duct bank would be calculated this configuration. I will have up to 12 rows and coluimns in a single ductbank, so I might have a 10x10, 3x12, 12x 1, etc.

I have a custom pipes catalog and within the AeccPartParamCfg.xml I have created 2 custom propertes named ROWS & COLUMNS.

My question is can this custom property be used to calculate the the height & width on the rectangular pipe within part builder? Once I draw my pipe I would like the ability to edit ROWS & COLUMNS within the Pipes Properties to change its size. is this possible?  See image below.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Points Names Without Assigning Point Numbers

Jun 15, 2009

I'm trying to import a GPS coordinate file where our Surveyor has used both Points Names (Alpha-Numeric) and Point Numbers. see below. I have setup a Point File Format for Pname, North, East, Elev and RAW Description, to import this comma separated point file. The problem is that Civil 3D does not want to seem to use a numeric point name as a Point Number, instead the number is used as a Point name and Civil 3D assigns a Point number from the next availible point number. Is it possible to automatically, when the Point Name is a numer only to also assign it the same value as the Point Names?

I would really want Civil 3D to allow users to use Both, Point Names without assigning a Point number.

AutoCad :: Unable To Select Multiple Items

Jan 15, 2010

Suddenly I can only select one item at a time. If I move onto another item, the first one de-selects. I haven't knowingly made any changes. What has happened and how to put it right? I can select multiple items via 'click and drag', but only within one drag - another drag then de-selects the first drag again.

AutoCAD 2013 :: Best Way To Count Items On Layer Or Multiple Layers

Apr 15, 2013

I need to quickly obtain a count of all entities on a layer, or preferably multiple layers. In this instance all the entities will be hatches so that should make it a bit easier.

I'm aware I can use quickselect but if there was a routine that would select all hatch entities on screen (multiple layers) and provide a count per layer that would be much quicker.

InDesign :: How To Fit Placed Items Multiple Up

Apr 10, 2014

Any way to automatically fill a blank document with placed items making it multiple up?
A simple example would be a business card that I designed in InDesign. I have the margins, document size and bleed edges set, I would like to place them multiple up on various sizes to see what size would hold the most to trim. 8up typically go on a letter sized document etc. But now many could I fit on 12"x18", etc.
What I am trying to accomplish not having to align each one manually which is slowing my work flow down. Plus when customers have odd sized documents they want cut and padded etc, having the abilitiy for the software to automatically place items that are all alligned by their trim edges would save a lot of proofing and re laying items out.
The idea comes from my Silouette Cameo personal cutting plotter. The software lets you fill the cut area with a design and it is filled equally.
There has to be a way commercial users can do this with out figuring all the math?

Illustrator :: Unable To Move Objects And Certain Menu Items Don't Work

Oct 22, 2013

Using CS5.When I try to move any object by selecting and then trying to drag, it won't let me. It allows me to drag while selected maybe half an inch before not moving anymore, and then snaps back to the original position anyway. I CAN move by using transform - move, or selecting and using arrow keys. When I restart my computer everything seems fine, but then it soon gives me this same problem.
Also, when I'm having the object moving issue I also have problems with dropdown menus. For example when printing, I can see the list of printers, but clicking them has no effect. Another example is the Preferences menu box, clicking "Type" or "Units" has no effect.
