Re: Rotating the UCS

Ok, I think I understand what you're asking about, and yes, it would be useful sometimes.

 

But if you use the approach I described, you can basically accomplish the same thing.  Instead of selecting at an angle on the screen, you twist the drawing angle till it matches the screen.  Either way you can still get the selection box to be parallel to any particular part of the drawing.  And this has the advantage of avoiding playing around with the UCS, since that can wreck havoc on certain drawings.

 

I have a lisp that sets the DVIEW TWIST and the SNAPANG easily by clicking points on screen, or by selecting a line, block or text object.  I'll post it here if you're interested.

Well we have finally achieved a understanding of what I  as trying to apply .  I am grateful that you took the time to search out the request and provide options. 

 

         Yes I would appreciate  your optional application of a "lisp that sets the DVIEW TWIST and the SNAPANG easily by clicking points on screen, or by selecting a line, block or text object."  

          This should keep me happy until Autodesk comes up with a one step command for this feature.

 

Once again thank you very much my best regards,

Glad we understand each other too.  I took me a while because I never edit the UCS.

 

Here is the lisp.  I don't take any credit for it, I downloaded it from elsewhere on these forums.  I've been using it for a few months now; I find it very useful.

 

All the best.

Pick a spot that makes sense to you.

 

Then, in AutoCAD, type APPLOAD, browse to the folder, and load the lisp.

If you want the command to be available every time you run AutoCAD, add it to the Starup Suite (I always do this with useful lisps).  Then you don't need to go into the APPLOAD box every time.

 

Type TW to run the command; watch the command line for the options.
