'ALIGN' command

410 Views, 5 Replies
01-22-2008 07:49 AM
Before my computer at work broke I was using AutoCAD 2005 and had a command called 'ALIGN' this ment I could align points parallel to others.(2D) This tool came in very handy for aligning xref to the correct position.
Now I am using AutoCAD 2004 and it doesn't seem to have this command. Is it hidden somewhere or is there any way to create new commands?

Any help would be great thanx :smileyhappy:

Are you using full AutoCAD2004, or LT2004? It's not found in the latter... .

Are you using full AutoCAD 2004 with a custom menu, or the default AutoCAD
menu file? MNL file may not have been copied if the former is true.

I would ask the person that downgraded you if you don't know the answers for
sure, bet they have a fix.

My AutoCAD 2004 disk got ruined, so I can check on this myself.
In AutoCAD 2006, it's not a LISP routine. Just wondering, If you open
ACAD.MNL:
(startapp "notepad" (findfile "acad.mnl"))
can you search for and find the following text?:
(defun c:align

Does the following work?
(command "_.align")
If it does, It's not a LISP routine, but a core command. I know the first
ALIGN was a LISP routine, but I don't remember at what point it became an
actual command.
