Oh, wow, didn't even think to do that. Hum, looks like we're gonna get
AutoCAD's "authorization" scheme and they are bringing back a network
version.

The text scale command looks interesting, but why couldn't they just go
ahead and make it paperspace-aware? However, I'm wondering what fun awaits
us with the new associative dimensions. Making them assocative through
paperspace to modelspace objects looks nice, but I wonder if it will work
if the modelspace objects are xrefs.

Interesting...

Good questions.

I was getting bored with the Internet stuff when I came across p.13 of the
AutoCAD LT 2002 Preview Guide. The Options dialog box shows a Profiles tab,
yet there is no mention of profiles in the document. Hmm.

Also, on the Q&A (question 2.1) on p. 5, it says, "AutoCAD LT 2002 is
available now worldwide in International English. This version began
shipping June 15, 2001."

Huh?!?!

I agree that censorship kills the vitality of a discussion group.

I've had a few slaps on the wrist myself. AcadLT without customization

and add-on utilities is a pretty lame product for the money. Beneath all

the bells and whistles lies a seriously crippled version of Acad. Ideas

and news about LT development should be welcome here, even comparissons

with competing products. These are the things that the CAD people

naturally talk about anyway. I guess blatant ads for competing

products that bear no relation to LT, may be a bit much tho.

"Comparisons with competing products"? Man, that would be some interesting
reading - as long as it's kept on a professional level.

As a small-time AutoCAD LT add-on developer, I welcome the idea. I wouldn't
mind my products being publicly evaluated (praised or criticized) and even
compared with others.

But I believe the developers would need to stay out it - we're all biased
anyway! ;-) Really, let the users compare and converse, and let the
developers learn from the conversation where their product excels or needs
improvement.

I doubt that'll ever be welcome here, though. I mean, on the Adesk servers -
even in a separate NG. Sure would be fun to read, though!

Okay as a LT user I needed a batch plot program being that LT doesn't offer
one. If it wasn't for Mark saying something on this NG I would be beating
myself with my mouse, so I support that 3rd party add-ons are written about
here, if Autodesk would write a better program for the smaller user then we
wouldn't be having this discussion, now would we!!
