There's is nothing on my blog if you are referring to that as the site.
There is a set of tools in AutoCAD named CAD Standards, look on the ribbon
on the Tools tab.

ZIP contains two files, place them in AutoCAD's search path, then drag and
drop the LSP file into an open DWG you want to fix, type TXTMRG and watch
the pop-up and command line for instructions.

How to load and run Lisp files is explained everywhere, look around if you
need guidance. If you have to ask a lot of questions about this tool, delete
both files and come back here for another fix from someone else :smileyhappy:)

You are absolutely correct. I didn't realize it, but I have the
following in my acad.lsp:

(Defun Extang (A)
(Setq A (Tblsearch "STYLE" A))
(Setq J (Cdr (Assoc 50 A)))
)

Add the following to your startup:

(Defun Extang (A)
(Setq A (Tblsearch "STYLE" A))
(Setq J (Cdr (Assoc 50 A)))
)

Then load chgsty.lsp and it will work.

Yes after I dropped the .lsp file into my acad drawing, I tried to run it and it keeps giving me that "; error: no function definition: EXTANG" error prompt. Please bare with me and explain to me how to fix this error and get the .lsp routine to work. I am a BEGINNER at .lsp files..as a matter of fact this will be my 1st time ever installing and running one. Thank you in advance for your time in answering my questions.
