We have LT2011 and would like to know if anyone has a script/macro for the above command, which is in full ACAD but not LT?
Solved! Go to Solution.
have you tried searching this section?
this question has been asked many times
Many thanks, however (forgive my novice-ness/ignorance) but these all appear to use lisps and I have LT - does anyone know if these is a script or macro that works?
Scripts and macros are deliberately removed from AutoCAD LT. Perhaps try looking for an express tool for doing the job, but I'm not sure if express tools are available with LT as they're also lisps etc.
Scripts and macros are deliberately removed from AutoCAD LT.....
Correct me if I'm wrong [I don't have LT], but I don't believe that's true -- that's precisely why the OP is asking for a Script or Macro, because they are available in LT, while AutoLISP is not.
I have my doubts that this can be done by a routine, because every approach I can think of would involve selecting a Text entity and saving its content to use in a new Mtext entity. All of the ways to save content that I can think of -- variables, system variables, environment variables, blackboard namespace, writing a line to a text file -- involve AutoLISP functions in one way or another.
But I don't pretent to know all the possibilities. Do (vl....) functions work in LT? Some [but far from all] of them are listed in the AutoLISP Reference, so I think of them as Lisp functions, but maybe they're different somehow.
You're probably right.
I've got another suggestion thought. How about exporting the data to excel somehow using LIST or something, and then re-import the data using the technique below:
Been having a look at other posts on the subject, I'm going to look at lisp enabling programmes such as DRC Auto, and then I can run the text2mtext lisp and others on the dotsoft web-site. Otherwise, it's fork out for full AutoCAD
Anyway, thanks for your input/help everybody, have a good day!
You could try going into the CUI and creating a new comand and use the following macro ^C^Ctxt2mtxt
Give it am image and then add it to a tool bar.
Let me know if this helps.
