Re: Convert All Multileaders into "Old" Leaders

What I meant about autorun, is that you wouldn't have to type the command name at the command prompt.  It would start running as soon as it is loaded and no typing of MLDR2LDR.


For your crooked leaders, what do you have your object snaps set to?  Sometimes when you run a iisp program and you have a running osnap, it will snap to the object and not take the actual coordinates.  If this is the problem place a (setvar "OSMODE" 0) after you extract the current layer name and then reset it when you exit if you want.


For the points I used your function so you probably are as good as I am on acquiring points.  But if you are still having issues, repost and I'll see if I can help.

That did the trick.  I forgot about OSMODE.  I'll probably won't autorun it because this is for a specific client.  It could be counterproductive to automatically nuke mleaders upon opening any drawing (we use them a lot).  Next I'm going to attempt to adapt the code so that you can select multiple drawings and do the same thing.  I think that will require DOSLIB which I am not too familiar with.  This will work just fine in the meantime.


Thanks again for your help! is the updated lisp.
