Hello Terry

 

I'd like to add Layer descriptions as well, but I cannot seem to get out of the "D"escription option when the script runs so I get the some crazy descriptions. Is the a special key stroke to get to the next line to "M"ake a layer?

 

Thanks

Thank you

Take the billable rate per hour of the letters appended to your name, multiply that by the total time you've spent on it, then divide that by the cost of an XL2CAD upgrade and you've got your answer.

That is hysterical. Thanks I'll dwell on it. Don't get me wrong, you have a great product - I have other admin issues to contend with.
