Do you mean "run a LISP routine" from Notepad?

HiHo; If you want to copy to NOTEPAD, just CtrlC the AutoCad text screen and CtrlV to the notepad. If you want to use some data from the notepad to draw in AutoCad a script file will do that. Alternatively there are lisp routines to import XYZ date into AutoCad and draw the appropriate object.

Let's say yes. For instance there are some architectural symbols or blocks and when I tried to download them from an Italian website I received them in a notepad form, and that was it, I coudn't do enything else to see them Thanks for your responce

What was the file name that you downloaded? Something.lsp or something.dwg or something.dxf?

Blocks are DWG files. If you changed the file extension from DWG to something else like TXT, just change them back to DWG and they should behave as you would expect.
BTW, blocks are NOT LISP routines. LISPs are programs and have a LSP extension.
