Is there any way to change the msltscale variable to 1 and the scale to 1/4"=1'-0" in multiple drawings without opening each and doing it all manually?
Thanks for the help
If you are new to autocad scripting, there are script generators available on the internet.
Dotsoft has "Super Script" which cost 50 bucks and is well worth it. There are others as well.
Lisp is different from script, and what you need is a batch script that can open cad files, set the MSLTScale, save the file and close the file.
Do a search on Autodesk site for ScriptPro.
It would do what you want and is free (I think)
Great - I'll give that a try. I tell you - its tough to manage all the houses we have and draw each one per customer selections and still try and improve my performance and keep up with technology and improve the standards of my department... When will the mayhem end for a single employee to handle all of this? Come on economy!
Ohhh.....stop grumbling and get on with it !:smileyhappy ! :-)
By the way...don't forget to set the MSLTScale in your template file ! (ant any other setvars you want)
Great! Script Pro is free and works great.
Here was my script:
1/4" = 1'-0"
The only thing I want to change now is to be able to switch layout tabs and zoom extents in each - from my research it looks like I'll have to do some LISP routine - which I don't know how to do....
