Style Updates

Hey all,

 

I am wondering if it is possible to do a style update (or style update check) upon open of a drawing? 

 

The example would be that I have stuff made from way back that the colors/dimension sytles ect dont match the current standard and upon opening a file where they are not current, it would either prompt to update immediatly OR update automatically with no prompting (preferred method).

 

I am doing a massive amount of updates from old files recently and to save myself 1 - 3 clicks per drawing would be wonderful.

 

tks! :smileyhappy:

Hi,

 

Thanks for that. Seems like the mCAD way might be the answer...if only I could find the download link? I looked in the App Exchange (maybe I am using wrong wording when I search?)...or is it somewhere else?

 

tks!
