FLATSHOT Insertion Point

Hi All,


The insertion point of the block created by FLATSHOT seems to be the VIEWCTR (system variable) of

the current view.

But sometimes the insertion point of the FLATSHOT block seems to be random.


I believe that the TARGET system variable is offsetting the VIEWCTR insertion point calculated by

AutoCAD for the FLATSHOT block definition by the X,Y and Z components of the current value of



I've attached a small program for calculating the insertion point of the FLATSHOT block to insert it in the correct location.

It calculates the UCS insertion point from the current values of system variables UCSORG, VIEWCTR

and. TARGET.


I hope my logic is correct and it works for others.
