Does anyone have any idea where I can find the latest Lisp manual in pdf format. I looked under AutoCAD support/documentation on the site and it says it's available only under ADN and Subscription. I have a subscription for ADT 2004. I've logged on and can't find it anywhere. Can you please lead the blind. Thanks.

From subscription "home" [after login]: Go to the Resource Center, then click on the AutoCAD® 2004 Developer Manuals link in the Documentation paragraph. You can download the Customization Guide, AutoLISP Developer's Guide, AutoLISP Tutorial and ActiveX and VBA Developer's Guide in PDF format.

On the Subscription Home page, click on the Resource Center link in the left hand column [below the "autodesk" logo]. That should take you to the Resource Center page, that has the Documentation paragraph containing the AutoCAD® 2004 Developer Manuals link.

David as per my response to your reply, I was able to get into the Resource Centre link. The link does in fact take me to the Resource Centre page! The problem is the that the Documentation paragraph containing the AutoCAD 2004 Developer Manuals link is not there! Please see below for a description of what I see please!

Why does AutoDesk not include these manuals with the origional CDs? These manuals used to come with AutoCAD in printed format so it should be real easy to slip that PDF onto a CD.

Your continuing help would be appreciated.

Hmmm. I see the following paragraphs below the Discreet paragraph:

Documentation
Autodesk provides a variety of manuals and online information to help you learn, use, and develop programs for Autodesk Products. Although all resources are available in digital format in the product and some are available for purchase in print − a number of these documents have also been made available via download to subscription members: Product Manuals and AutoCAD® 2004 Developer Manuals.

Service Packs
Service packs, patches, fixes and other utilities that are most relevant to subscribers are available on the Autodesk Product Support site. Click here to search and download the latest files.

Tools
Productivity enhancers from Autodesk and industry partners.
AutoCAD® 2000i Express Tools, Volume 1−9
Migrating Express Tools from AutoCAD 2000 or AutoCAD 2000i to AutoCAD 2002

Discussion Groups
Join a product Discussion Group to ask questions and share information about using Autodesk software.

Knowledge Base
Use the Knowledge Base to explore technical documents and other support information.

The "AutoCAD® 2004 Developer Manuals" phrase under Documentation is a link to the manuals you seek. I have no idea why you are not seeing these additional paragraphs.

I don't see any of that! Is there any other way I can get the documentation I need? Who else should I be talking with about this problem? Could it have something to do with my subscription? We have subscriptions for all of our copies of Architectural Desktop 2004. I find it hard to believe that AutoCAD 2004 subscribers would have access to this information and ADT 2004 users would not.

It is indeed not possible to find the Lisp manuals. Not in the help and not online.

This is what I see in the subscription center:

 

Downloads

No documentation anywhere.

The previous posts were from nearly eight years ago.  Today, I am appear to be getting the same thing you got, and there does not appear to be a PDF download for the AutoLISP manual anymore.  Autodesk has restructured the documentation and Help several times since the 2004 releases.  The Autodesk Exchange site for AutoCAD does allow you to download a PDF of the main product manual, and there is also one on general customization The AutoLISP one is not available there.

 

The 2004 release AutoLISP PDFs are too large to post here.  There will not be anything on the CUI in them, and any recent revisions or additions to AutoLISP will also not be covered, so the on-line Help (AutoLISP Developer's Guide and AutoLISP Reference Guide) may still be your best resource.
