AutoCAD LT :: Toggle Snap To Xref

Jan 26, 2013

Is there a way to toggle snapping to a layer or xref?

When using object snap and you are drawing with a busy survey xref in the background, the mouse cursor really hunts around a lot on the contour lines and stuff instead of on what I am drawing. But, I would like to see the contour lines as I go, rather than hide the layer.

AutoCad :: Reassigning A Key To Toggle Ortho

Mar 30, 2013

My new HP laptop has functions assigned to the F function keys, and this disables the autocad functions for these keys. I am told by HP that it is not possible to turn off these functions to allow cad to use them. I just tried working without using the F3 and F8 keys, and I am crippled. How can I assign another key - say Q - to toggle ortho?

I am using Autocad 2000. I know, I am like an old dog who gets comfortable by the fireplace, and is happy with what I have. where the toggle is to set the dimensioning for metric dimensions. I have seen it in a couple of places and after I set it for millimeters, for some reason it still dimensions in English measurements.

AutoCAD Visual LISP / AutoLISP :: Toggle Between PS And MS

Nov 8, 2011

I upgraded from Autocad 2004 to 2012 recently and my lisp file doesnt work anymore.

what it's supposed to do is when looking at the layout tab that you want you can switch to the model space location of the same zoom as the layout tab without messing with the layout zoom.

(defun c:msp ()
(setq cm (getvar "cmdecho"))
(setvar "cmdecho" 0)
(command"view" "d" "tmp")
(setvar "tilemode" 0)
(princ "Click TWICE on desired VPORT: ")
(command "mspace" pause "view" "s" "tmp")(princ)
(setvar "tilemode" 1)
(command "view" "r" "tmp")

AutoCAD 2013 :: How To Toggle Menu Mode

Somehow I activated a mode where when I click on an object, if there are several objects there, it will bring up a little menu to pick which one I want, similar to Inventor if you hover or say "Select other...". How do I toggle this mode? Turns out I like it sometimes but usually I don't need it.

AutoCAD 2010 :: Toggle Text Window?

Sep 18, 2012

I can press F2 to open the AutoCAD Text Window, but I'm looking for a reliable way to close it once it's open.  If it's not overlapping with AutoCAD, F2 doesn't close it.  I currently have it on a monitor other than the monitor AutoCAD is on.

Is there a system variable I can use to setup a LISP to toggle (or at least close) the Text Window using a keyboard shortcut?

System specifications: AutoCAD 2014 64-bit SP1, Windows 7 64-bit SP1, Intel Core i7-2600K, AMD FirePro V4900
16GB RAM, Crucial M4 SSD, 3 Dell Monitors (2 30" 2560x1600 & 1 20" 1200x1600)

AutoCAD 2013 :: Change Toggle Polar On / Off

Dec 12, 2013

I am looking for a way to change the toggle polar On/Off from F10 to F6. I already did it with the "delete" and the "Ortho" keys but i can't find the macro for the toggle polar on/off.

Has you can see on the picture for Delete it's  ^C^C erase;

For ortho it's ^O

Maybe for Polar it's ^P  but i could validate with you before i do any changes. (;

AutoCad 2D :: Toggle Between Ortho On / Off - Measure Command

Jan 28, 2013

I have moved onto a new machine and there are 2 AC functions I need to change.

1. I used to be able to toggle between Ortho on/off by holding the SHIFT key, on this machine it doesn't activate. Is there a command for this? I know I could use F8 but my hand is over the SHIFT key when I draw so its easier to do it this way.

2. When I activate the MEASURE command AC automatically activates Dynamic Input which makes my cursor jumpy when I move it. How can I stop this from happening? To clarify, I don't want Dynamic Input on when I am in the measure command.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Using A Rule To Toggle Part Visibility

Jun 12, 2012

I have a simple Assembly for a Frame that I made with Frame Generator. I'd like to use a rule to toggle the visible of some of the framing members.

In the sub assembly (called Frame0001:1) I created a rule:

(I have a variable called LeftAngle, and the bar I want to toggle is called Bar1.)

If LeftAngle = 90 then
Component.Visible("Bar1") = False
Component.Visible("Bar1") = True
End If

I am sure this is VERY basic, but I can't get it to do anything. There is no error message - just nothing happens.

I know the rule is running though - it will change other parameters in response to the If Then statement.

AutoCAD Inventor :: 2 Step Visibility Toggle While Drafting

Sep 2, 2013

I am trying to draft an assembly - when i want to hide some components I go to the tree and right click on the part/assembly and select Visibility.

There is a square next to visibility on the right click menu (like a 'stop' button) and nothing changes when i select it.

When I right click on the tree a second time, a tick appears (like in modelling/assembly view) and when selected it disappears. 

I want to turn items off in one click -

AutoCad :: How Multiple Lookup Toggle Created Without Any Visibility State

May 7, 2013


Since weld symbols are regularly used in my day to day work, i thought of making a dynamic block. I had zero knowledge of dynamic blocks at that time. I realized that its actually very difficult to make a type of dynamic block i wanted. So instead of breaking my head to create it, its better to downloaded it.

Attached is the drawing i found on a forum. Its extremely cool, that's exactly what i wanted. The multiple toggle is extremely useful. That's what i wanted but was unable to create.

How this multiple lookup toggle were created without any visibility state?

AutoCAD Inventor :: VBA Code To Toggle Custom Button Image?

Jun 5, 2013

I have created some custom button in VBA. I wish I can make those buttons toggling their image.

For example my custom button toggles Part/Component priority or Highligt on/off and I would like the button image will change showing the current state.

The background image color change will work too, or the some extra tiny mark on working sceen would be useful if it quite complicated to deal with ribbons.

Generally I need to see the current state at glance.

I have a subassembly that has been patterned.

I need to toggle the visibility of a part in that subassembly in each pattern element.

How do I refer to the part?

I have declared an object for my pattern, and can toggle the suppression on any element.

But I need to get at an individual component inside the element. 

I've been trying something like this:

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Possible To Toggle Automatic Rebuild Option For Surfaces In Code

May 11, 2013

I have some code that edits the breaklines of a surface. Everything works correctly, except for the surface rebuild when finished.At the end of the command I use:


But when the command completes I still need to manually rebuild the surface to see the result of my command's edits. This is in both 2013 & 2014. I shouldn't need to do this and was just wondering why the Rebuild() method doesn't always work.

Also, is it possible to toggle the Automatic Rebuild option for surfaces in code?

AutoCad 3D :: Safe Frame Toggle - Make Window Proportioned To Render

May 8, 2013

how can i have a preview of the area that is going to be rendered in the model window? (this command in 3d studio is SHIFT+F, for the ones that know what i'm talking about..)

so this is the point, I have to make a bunch of images all from the same spot and with the same framing, but doesn't matter, even if I save the views, the rendered image is always different. (this mostly because

I'm using multiple computers, so it's enough that the machine has a different screen resolution or that autocad on a different machine has a different user interface, to make the render completely different.... I'd solve it using always the same computer, but it's part of the request from my new boss)...

if I set up a camera to have a proportioned view? it looks that the camera preview window is totally random.
