Thanks again, Looks like Im going to have to do that, since the classgroup command does not exist in the list. ? Rick

Just add it...Edit the existing G entry, change it to CLASSICGROUP, you will be told it doesn't exist and asked if you want to create it. Answer Yes, then Yes again to overwrite the G alias.

 

You may need to set permissions for the file alias.pgc to allow write. This file is in the "C3D Install"\Express folder.

It doesn't matter if it appears in the list. Just define it the way you want and when it says Classicgroup is a new command an do you want to add it. Say yes. Then it will work.

 

You can also define aliases for lisp routines that starts from the command line. If you had a Lisp that you start with Text2Mtext. You could define an alias of T2M.

Jeff,

Do you mean acad.pgp?

 

You can verify where the active one is by using (findfile "acad.pgp") at the command line. We keep ours on the server so it doesn't get overwritten on each install.

Nope, alias.pgc is what the Express tools Alias editor tried to edit, but couldn't, until I changed the permissions for that file. This is the list of commands Express Tools uses to edit the pgp file.

Ah. That makes sense now. I hadn't heard of it before. Nice that it's in ASCII. You could add commands ahead of time, but why bother. Good place to get a list of commands though. Thanks.

Thanks again to all,

 

I was finally able to get the classicgroup to work after changing permissions, and things are working as expected.

 

Would be nice if Adesk had programmed in the dialoge box for the revised command.

 

Maybe something for the wish list.
