AutoCAD Civil 3D :: How To Load Multiple Text Sizes

Oct 26, 2011

I am trying to load multiple Text Sizes into AutoCAD Civil 3D 2012 so that I can have a list of the standard text sizes (3/32", 3/16", 1/4", 3/8") to choose from the Annotation tab > Text Group > Annotation Text Height drop down list, instead of having to type them in each time.

At first I thought that I could just add the different text sizes using the TEXTSIZE variable command into my drawing template file, but apparently the Text Sizes entered are only retained for that particular session of AutoCAD Civil 3D.  Is there perhaps some other system variable that controls this setting being retained for more than one session??

Then I thought I could just create a program to load the sizes. I originally tried creating a C# .NET program to load the text sizes, but ran into a problem.  I then I tried creating another version of a C# program, as well as an AutoLISP script, thinking that it was perhaps some limitation to my approach (which still may be the case).  But I still keep running into the same problem.  The problem is that only the last text size specified is actually entered into the list of available text sizes.  The other text size values appear to be processed but are not retained in the Annotation Text Height drop down list.

The following is my first attempt with C#:

using Autodesk.AutoCAD.ApplicationServices;
using Autodesk.AutoCAD.Runtime;
public class CreateTextSizes : Autodesk.AutoCAD.Runtime.IExtensionApplication
public void Initialize()
// Create following Text Sizes:  0.09375 (3/32"), 0.1975 (3/16"), 0.25 (1/4"), 0.375 (3/8")


The following is my attempt with AutoLISP:

(Command "TEXTSIZE" 0.09375)
(Command "TEXTSIZE" 0.1975)
(Command "TEXTSIZE" 0.025)
(Command "TEXTSIZE" 0.375)
(Command "TEXTSIZE" 0.09375)

AutoCad 2D :: Attribute Text - Multiple Sizes In Block

Mar 2, 2012

We have a client whom insists on 1/8" text and my blocks are all sized for 3/32". What I wanted to do is create two visibility states for the block. One using the 1/8" text and one using the 3/32" and be able to switch between them. I can get the border of the tag to work, but the text doesn't switch sizes.

Is this even possible? Is there a better way to deal with all my tags and needing to have two different versions of them? (Tags such as fixture tags, note tags, etc...)

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Multiple Text Edit

May 25, 2012

LDT had a command for editing multiple lines of text without exiting the command.  This made renumbering and relabeling very easy and saved time.


Currently I am getting an error.

Command: (load "tedit")
; error: LOAD failed: "tedit"

Is there a similar command in C3D?  Or can I edit the old command to be compatible with C3D?

AutoCAD 2013 :: Create Dynamic Block Of Steel Angle Of Multiple Sizes And Thickness

Nov 19, 2012

I am tying to create a Dynamic Block of a steel angle of multiple sizes and thickness. I used Dynamic Blocks before and live the idea of changing sizes on the fly with out having to delete and recreate an object.. I got as far as creating an angle of different sizes, i.e.. 4x4, 5x5, etc. and different thickness but can't get the thickness to work with the radius of the angle.

Photoshop :: Reducing Multiple Image Sizes In One Go

Oct 12, 2004

I have a whole directory of images which I took with my digital camera. I want to post them on my site, however I would like to reduce their size to fit the html pages. I know how to perform this task for individual photos, but since my directory consists of many images, this task will be very time consuming.

I was wondering if there is any way to have photoshop make the same image
size reduction on all images, by running some sort of script or any other way.
If there is such a way, does photoshop also save the new smaller images?

Photoshop :: Batch Saving Multiple Sizes

Mar 22, 2007

I'm using Photoshop to create my web images and need to make an "Action" to use the "Save for Web" function where it'll save 3 different image sizes (Small, Medium and Large) with a suffix at the end of the file name ("_s", "_m" and "_l" respectively), but I can't seem to find any way of getting the software to add to the filename without rewritting it completely (which I have to do manually anyway).
I have found the "Output Settings" dialog window and this looks to do everything I want, but I have tried everything I can think of and can't seem to get it working.

Revit :: Printing Multiple Sheets With Different Sizes To Print

Feb 10, 2013

We are looking for an easy straightforward way to print / export an entire set of sheets to pdf.The sheets have different papersizes and we want them to be named with the sheet number + name, and possible a prefix by choice.We have Adobe Acrobat X installed as pdf printer.So far we managed to print an entire set to pdf with these somewhat annoying issues:

1. The naming adds the word "sheet" between the chosen prefix and number-name.can we get rid of this?
2. The prints seem only to follow the actual Revit Print-setup, on papersizes.Which means that we need to have print-sessions on every paper size used in a project.Strange that in Revit the paper print-setup, doesnt follow the sheet definitions.(?)Is there a way within Revit to solve this to a more automated workflow?Or do we have to implement third party plugiins / solutions?

Illustrator :: Printing Postscript From Multiple Page Sizes?

Apr 30, 2013

I'm working at a screen shop, printing .ps files for film. Most of the art is provided from the client on seperate artboards of varying size. In the print dialog box I select "custom" from media size options. This sets my page size to the size of the selected artboard. The problem is each page needs to be a different size so I am forced to print each page one at a time. Is there a way for illustrator to change the media size per artboard?

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 :: Changing Individual Marker Sizes?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Reduce Marker And Label Sizes

Sep 9, 2013

On the Marker Tab of my point style, I set the Marker Size to 0.05".

Then on the Summary Tab, under the Marker Node, the Point Marker Size shows 0.004". If I change that to 0.05, like I have it on the Marker Tab, the point marker becomes huge. Why aren't these two settings the same?

Another question. When I reduce the Marker and Label sizes, the label doesn't "suck in" to the marker. How can I bring the label closer to the marker without dragging it?

AutoCad :: How To Make Text Appear To Change With Various Window Unit Sizes

Mar 19, 2010

I am working on creating various standard sized window elevations using dynamic blocks. Each window elevation needs to have text underneath it that tells you the unit size of the window. While I have successfully created all the various elevations using dynamic blocks I can't figure out how to make the text appear to change with the various window unit sizes. for instance I have a small window that has text underneath showing 1818 (18"wide x 18"high). I need text to change to say 1820, 1824, 1830, etc. I can get the 1818 text to stay centered under the elevation as the window gets wider/higher but that is it.

Is there a way to have VARIABLE text size AND BLOCK SIZE autocad 2012, for different scales sizes? To sum it up I am running 1/8th scale on some of the pages in the set with a 1/4 blow up section. I use addressable devices so it is a lot of work to change all the text Is there anything that will auto-update the text size per scale with out having to go through my drawing and repeat all the text and VPfreeze it?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Applying Moment Load On Multiple Components?

May 8, 2012

I'd like to know how inventor defines the center of rotation when you apply moment load on multiple faces at once. I'm not basically able to define where exactly I need that axis to be. and I dont understand where inventor assumes that axis is. if you take a look at attached model, obviously the resultant forces caused by the applied moment are bigger on the single pillar located on the extention, thats why its been displaced more than the others, but where exactly is center of rotation. I'm trying to avoid modeling of the section above this which technically transfers the moment thorough shear pins on the structure I have modeled.

Photoshop Elements :: Why Do File Sizes Change / When Use Process Multiple Images To Add Watermarks

Feb 22, 2014

I'm using Elements 11. In order to add watermarks to many JPG pics at once, I use the function "Process Multiple Files".
I select a source folder and a destination folder, and adds a three digit serial number to each file. I do NOT tick the checkbox marked "Change picture size". After that I define the watermark I want printed on my pics and hits OK. All the files in the source folder are processed and saved, with a new name in the destination folder. Fair and square.
But. The file size of the new file is heavily reduced, compared to the original. It goes from 10 MB down to 500 KB (in general). Why is that? Is there any way I can prevent it?

AutoCad :: Click On Table And Remove Overrides - Text Sizes Wrong

When I paste data from excel into autocad as 'autocad entities'(paste special) the newly created autocad table does not adhere to the pre-defined table style. Even if I right click on the table and remove overides the text sizes are wrong. I suspect it might be related to some variable, but I don't know which one.

Photoshop :: How To Load Multiple Patterns

Aug 1, 2013

I am operating with CS5 and Windows 8.

I am unsuccessful with clicking and draging .PAT files from my presets folder in Windows Explorer into and/or around the Preset Manager window in CS5.  When I click and drag, my cursor symbol makes it look like it will work but nothing happens- no .pat files are loaded in.
So, far all I can do is load one pattern at a time.
Is it possible to move/load multiple .pat files at one time?
