I know that there is a Save All command in express tools but if one does not have express tools installed or loaded how can they access this Save All fuction frome the command line? See screen shot..

Hi can you type saveall on the command line?

Just tried this with MEP 2013 using vanilla profile & it worked OK.

Without express tools installed I get,

Command: saveall
Unknown command "SAVEALL".  Press F1 for help.

In AutoCAD 2012, Mechanical 2012, and Electrical 2013.

Yes, I know about the saveall.lsp and that's what I currently use. I was just wondering if there was a way to access the built in save all function for distribution reasons.

So you can't, or won't, or don't know how to install Express Tools?

Where is your screenshot from? You're not using plain AutoCAD, right?

There is no built-in SAVEALL command. You need to use the LISP or the express tool.

Final Answer, once again: NO YOU CANNOT!

Hope that helps clear it up :smileyhappy:

 

If there is a way, and so far I don't understand why you can't just install ET or the Lisp you have, the folks at the Customization Discussion area may know, you tell you the exact same thing:

So why the fear of ET installs? I.T. running your shop, instead of the folks earning the money for IT to spend?
