Okay, I might be crazy as far as even attempting to do something like this.
Or, it could be simple and I'm overthinking it.
I want to create a field that counts blocks.
Sort of like a BOM, but without using that actual feature.
(I just don't like the way it functions)
I just want it to be cohesive with my title block.
Is there a way to set up a drawing template to throw the DWGPROPS screen in a user's face instead of going directly to model space?
I have title block set up with fields and custom fields to pull layout tab names, title, client number, etc.
Solved! Go to Solution.
The solution for your second question is easy. Save the code below as lisp file, then put it in your the startup suite in your template drawing. (Use APPLOAD for dialog to load and insert into startup suite)
(defun cPROPS ()
You can change/shorten the "DPROPS" to anything you want. AutoCAD will load it upon startup and the dialog will open automatically when you open the template.
(Smiley face is a colon) A feature they really need to get rid of.
