defining what it means to select "last"

Hello,

 

So I have this script I used to run in AutoCAD 2011 which involved mirroring a group of many layers and then moving the "last" object created. In 2011, when I moved "last", it considered everything I mirrored to be "last." In 2012, it is taking strinctly the last object I created, not the group of layers that I mirrored, to be "last." Is there an internal variable I can change so that "last" can mean everything I just mirrored again?

 

Thanks,

 

May

You said "group", is it actually a GROUP made by group command?

Check your PICKSTYLE between two versions.

Hi, thanks for the reply.

 

I did create a group using the group command. I am mirroring this group of layers and not erasing the original, because i want to select everything that has just been mirrored.

 

In any case, I think I'm going to change my script to just select the mirrored components using a window, although this is inconvenient -_-

 

Thanks =)

Pickstyle variable controls the last 1 entity or the last group.

same thing as if you use CTRL+SHIFT+A
