Using the "Break at One Point" Command

364 Views, 6 Replies

I use the "Break at One Point" command a lot. When I use it the first time it works great, but when I hit repeat command it just breaks the line with a gap and doesn't make the break at the point I pick...
Is there anything I can adjust to make it work correctly? Edited by: QbicleDweller on Feb 19, 2009 7:50 PM

not really a command - just a macro. when you
repeat you just get the basic "break" command without all the macro
goodies.

 

make a little lisp routine (call it whatever you
like) similar to this (called BA for break at)

 


(defun C:BA ()
(setvar "cmdecho" 1)
(command ".break" pause "f"
pause "@")(princ))

 

and have it autoloaded or in your startup suite or in an acaddoc.lsp
file

When you select the command on a toolbar you are running a small macro
which starts withe BREAK command and then takes some options. When you
hit the enter key after the first time it just repeats the break
command. To fix it you could write a small lisp routine which emulates
the break at a point macro and run that routine instead of the standard
macro.

The lisp-free fix is to right-click and reselect the 'macro'.

yes, true and a good suggestion for new users who are more icon and right
click driven

that requires a little extra effort on my part because I'm such an old f*rt
and have my right click set to repeat the last command (on a quick click or
bring up the menu on a long click) and have been using keyboard entries for
such a long time - I have long since had most of my keyboard shortcuts
memorized...
