Have only recently purchased and installed X5. I am coming from PSPv9 (and doing so reluctantly.)
I am attempting to duplicate the tool toolbar that I am use to in PSPv9 in X5. I have been successful except for one group. In PSPv9, the Dropper tool and the Color Replacer tool are in the same group. I have been able to create a new Button Group and place both tools into it. What I can not figure out is how to have the new button group display an icon. All other groups display the icon of the first tool in the group listing.
I'm trying to find a way to add a custom button to my ribbon that will launch a global rule or form using VB. I know of a way using VBA but I want to get away from VBA. I'd much rather create an add with VB and use that.
I have a Logitech mouse that uses Set Point. I would like the sideways function of my wheel to function as Pan. In Acads CUI there is a list of ten buttons which different functions. How do I know which button is which? None of them have Pan by default, so how can I add it to a specific button?
I have an animation that runs for around 2 minutes. I want to add a button that the user can click to pause/play this animation if they want extra time to read the content on screen. I'm not sure how to tell a button to pause at the current frame and resume when clicked by the user. The button will also need to change states from a pause image to a play image when clicked and vice-versa.
I'm following the steps in the following link from Adobe:
The final step, after selecting the folder I want to add, is to select Import. Except, the Import button remains grayed out. I'm not sure what to do in order to select Import and add the folder I already have.
I just loaded 2014 onto a new computer and poof every custom toolbar has a question mark. Yet the image displays on the preview in the cui.
All of my button images are in a folder on my C: drive and that path is in the support file search path.
I went to one of the buttons and click on the small and large image and browsed to the folder with the BMP files and clicked it for both small and large.. And when I clicked 'ok' everything started to display correctly.

I want a to create a tool button on the annotate tab of the ribbon. The button will toggle between having the 'display line weights' box (on the drawing tab of the application options dialog box) ticked or not ticked.
I have the settings set to display true line weights. (so i can visualize how the actual print will look, but need it off to be able to draft properly).
I have a few sites that I use just to keep FeatureLines that I'm using for construction and don't want them interacting with anything in other sites. Of the when I draw an FL in one of those sites I'll get a message such as "Updating 286 points". This takes over 2 minutes to accomplish.
Since I don't have a lot of FeatureLines in the sited I wouldn't expect it to take that long. If it were a complicated site I might not think anything of it. If I add another FL I will still get the same message with the same # of points. So it isn't based on the number of vertices in the FL in that site or it would increase after adding each FL. There is no Surface that uses these FL. So It isn't updating a TIN.

BTW. If I delete the FL I don't get any message or lag.
However everytime I try to resize it there is no frame to pul from and with QR codes you have to be careful so you have to depress the Shift key to keep the QR code readable. I can't pull from the corners as there doesn't seem to be a frame around the image to pull the image smaller. Am I missing something here possibly in the settings somewhere.
I added a couple of standard Autocad MAP tabs to a custom panel and in my custom workspace some of the button images don't show up. If I go to the Planning & Analysis workspace, the images are visible, but in the custom workspace, all I get are clouds with a question mark.
I attached two screen shots.

I also note I could use excel but I have this thing where id like to have the lisp and AutoCAD run independent from other external programs.
I’m the CAD monkey at work and I’m given unbelievable autonomy to what I build (sometimes I confuse work with hobby) put all to one side. My functions often require toolbars with several buttons on them what I would like for one toolbar in particular is to make a most used function button. Better said a button at the beginning of my toolbar, which execute the most used button from within that entire toolbar.
The ideas so far is to add a write-line (append) function lisp for every button this would intern write a button codename/ reference example SNP for snap and SAV for save and so on. All easy I can do this.
What I’m having difficulty with is actually counting the instances of the most used button using lisp. At the moment I’m resorting to a vb.net program, which needs to be shelled first, to recalculate the whole list it works but is messy and quite patch worked. The highest instance would then be used to set a variable, which would be used as the command in the so-called “top 1 tool button”
I am setting up template .ipts and .idw for my company, and i run Adept to save and store my files. Now i have a code to automatically make a .idw after i save an .ipt. but then after every save (adept saves the .ipt a lot of times) it will ask to make a drawing for the .ipt. well i was wondering if there is a code to put in a rule to disable the event triggers, and place that rule on the trigger after close document. so that the next time i open the document no event triggers will work.
So the other day I set up an external rule and created an event trigger to run the rule on save. It worked great ... for a couple days, and then it just stopped working yesterday. I can still run the rule manually and it works fine, but it doesn't seem to run automatically anymore on file save. Yes, iLogic is set to Loaded / Automati in the add-ins panel.
(on the iLogic rule attachment, remove .TXT from the end. I had to add that due to the board's rules about file types.)

OK, so the problem I have found is that if I load this reactor into a drawing and then use the MVSETUP command but escape out without completing the command, AutoCAD throws an error and becomes unusable. When I then close AutoCAD down I am met with multiple unhandled exception errors before the app finally closes.
I then altered the reactor from a vlr-command-reactor to a vlr-editor-reactor and found that with this, I am no longer met with the same error while escaping out of MVSETUP. However, when I close CAD down I am eventually left with an 'AutoCAD Application has stopped working' error dialog on screen which reports that acad.exe as crashed.
I am working on AutoCAD Architecture 2012 (although I have tried it on 2013 to with the same results) on Windows 7 64bit. I have also tried this on ACA2012 x32 and found the same error exists.
I am doing something fundamentally wrong in the way I am handling reactors?
i'm looking for the ui and code to edit the way maya will sort influences in the paint skin weights tool. currently the sorting methods are kinds insufficient. Ideally i would like to be able to sort by locked , and have the ability to make painting sets so i can work on specific areas at a time.
