Variable Setting Question

87 Views, 7 Replies
03-31-2003 01:30 AM
does anyone know if there is a variable to set to maybe '0' or '1' that
makes the ChangeProperties dialog box pop up automatically upon start of
autocad or opening of a drawing ??....so you don't have to type 'ch' or
'_properties' or whatever to make it appear for the first time???


same question for the Autocad Design Center dialog box?



Thanks.

Greg,
Normally this should hold from the session when you close it.

To get them to show up, have you tried pressing Ctrl + 1 for properties and
Ctrl + 2 for Design Center?

Hope this helps,
Beau

If it is up when you close down it comes up the next time it is opened.

You could add it to your acad.lsp file. I don't know of a variable.

Add the following two lines to your ACAD.LSP file with Notepad.

(command "_properties")
(command "_adcenter")
