Flatten point styles to elevation

Is there a way to change all your point styles display mode (flatten to elevation, use point elevation, or exaggerate elevation) at once? I don't mean make a new style and then apply it to all points: I want to systematically change it for all my current point styles.

Unless you know someone who can whip up a quick lisp to do it for you. :-) See attached lisp file.

Jeff,

 

Thank you for very useful SETPOINTDISPLAYMODE.lsp code. There should be a way of global editing of other Point Style settings e.g. "leader stops at marker: no" or Orientation Reference etc.

I have a problem though: after successfully executing SETPOINTDISPLAYMODE.lsp for several times, it stopped working:
The error message is as follows:

 

Command: SETPOINTDISPLAYMODE
; error: Automation Error. Problem in loading application

 

Any idea how to fix it?

 

Thank you,

Przemek

Any chance you have a Civil 3D 2015 Version of your setpointdisplaymode.lsp?
