I just need the code for collecting information from a title blocks
attributes and storing that info for insertion into another blocks
Say I'm replacing the title block. I need to capture the old title block
for inserting into the new one.
If I can just get the code for just one attribute (say "TITLE") then I would
able to take it from there but it would also be nice to have the code for
an existing attribute.
On the first part, I have a routine to do this. As long as the tag names are
the same it'll migrate the values from one block to another, no matter what
the blocks are named. It's on my site and called ATTCOPY.
On the second part, I don't follow you.
Would the Burst command work for you?
Burst replaces the attribute with normal text, Not sure if your trying
to retain your attributes or not but that's what I use whenever I get
attribute laden title blocks or drawings with attribute room names
(that are a pain for us to mess with).
Burst can be found in the bonus lisp commands.
sure what do you have to do to the atts
change values or format the text?
lemme know what you need to do
and what version of autocad you have
BOO to you Learn to use your tools
or train your people
when someone like you screws up a drawing I created by removing the
atts or other useful data, exploding all the blocks, and hatches. I
REFUSE to work in that project any longer unless I am certain the
drawings are only 1 way, from me to you,
you may as well fully explode all the entites down to lines:
Plot the entire drawing to a DXB file and reinsert the resultant
500,000 vectors onto layer 0.
nothing but lines, usually very short lines,
there is nothing more useless or time wasting than a pile of vectors
floating around a screen, do you assign COLORS and Widths to your
lines and arcs also?
using a pencil is faster than working in a drawing that has been
exploded to base entities
