I tried to make all the changes to the code that you guys have suggested. I still can not seem to get it to work. I am getting this on the command line "no function definition: NO :error#0". Can anyone help. I have attached the lisp as I have adjusted it. The original format is listed above. Thanks
Much better. Thank you so much. How long have you been writting lisps. I have heard the best way to get started is through the AutoLISP Developers Guide. How long would you think it would take to have a reasonable good understanding of AutoLISP and do you have any other suggestions on getting start with AutoLISP.
You're welcome. As for how long, I have been using Acad for over 20 yrs and have been dabbling in Lisp (and now VBA) along the way. I am far from being an expert in Lisp, I just look thru the info available and try to find other routines that might do something similar and modify from there. Sometimes I get lucky and it works!
great lisp, however
i included your modification (cons 8 curlay) but all the mtext still gets plonked onto a layer "text"
i've attached the modified lisp could you tell me what is wrong if you would be so kind
See the revised lisp that I posted on the other branch of this thread. I think both of you took something too literally. The "curlay (no "") meant to use the variable CURLAY, but don't include the quotes.
I have just one more request with this lisp. I noticed that it is setting the color to bylayer and making the letters all upper case. Is there a easy way to have the lisp not change the color or text case?
