Hello from France

 

Welcome to the Autodesk / AutoCAD Forums !

 

In France we are using this routine "NM-StreetView" which launch directly Google Earth + StreetView

at the Point designed on the drawing ...

 

The routine can also launch "mappy.com" and/or "mapchannels.com" ... But I have commented the lines ...

 

I have always used "NM-StreetView" on DWGs with French Projections ...

 

Please let us know if "NM-StreetView" runs correctly anywhere around the World !?

 

Regards, Patrice

1) The Lisp routine is attached with my previous message ! ... Please download it ...

 

2) Use the command APPLOAD to load the Lisp routine ...

 

3) Then on the keyboard : NM-StreetView <Enter>

It works great!

I wonder why Autodesk does not incorporate this into MAP 3D???

...also why not add Geocode to...

 

Seems like a MAP application should have these features built in...

 

Thank you so much, if your ever in Atlanta drop me a line and I will buy you a beer...

 

 

See ya!

Autodesk just  offering platform for you.

You can use lisp for creating  almost everything you want to use in Autocad.

Hey Guys,

 

 

Koppesetic calling you from Atlanta, Georgia,

 

This is a great routine, but I am having problems with the mouse wheel zooming in too close or zooming out to far on the maps..

 

How can I launch Chrome instead of IE 7 ?

 

Thanks in advance for your time !!!

When I tried it out it launched in Firefox, which is my default browser.  I checked to see if it made a difference that IE was open at the same time, but it is still opening in Firefox. Is Chrome set up as your default?

I'm not great at LSP code, but it looks like it is using the "_browser" command to actually launch your web browser.  As far as I know, this should be launching whatever your default browser is.

 

Try typing "browser" in a cad drawing and see what browser it opens up on.

Hi Norm,



It says:

Enter Web location (URL) http://www.autodesk.com



Should I change this ???

It's the same for me.  I think that is their default, but you can put in "www.google.com" and it will open to google.  >>This<< is the command reference from Autodesk.  It says that this should open whatever the default browser is according to your registry. 

 

I also found some other people in the forums who say this command is opening the wrong browser, but they have the opposite problem.  Their issue is that it is opening in Chrome when IE is their default.  >>Here<< is a link to a discussion in the forums, and >>here<< is a knowledge base article about correcting your default browser back to IE.  I haven't found anything about going back the other way.

 

I suspect that something is not getting changed correctly in your registry, like in the knowledge base article.

If you are comfortable editing the registry, you can try this.

 

Open the registry editor

 

Navigate to "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT"

 

Navigate to ".htm" and ".html"

 

The top (default) value for the .htm version should read "htmfile" and the top (default) value for the .html version should read "htmlfile"

 

If it does, try changing these values to "ChromeHTML" for the default value in both the .htm and .html fields. This should set Chrome as the default browser in the registry.  From what I gather, sometimes setting your default browser through the browser itself does not correctly change these values.

 

Below are some sample images.  As always, USE CAUTION when editing the registry.  Maybe take a screenshot of your original values to make sure you can go back to them.  I tried this based on the Autodesk article >>here<<  I can confirm that changing these values did cause the "browser" command to launch the correct browser, but I have not done extensive testing of any other systems.

 

I can also confirm that using the chrome "make default" command as well as the firefox "make default" command edited these values correctly, while the IE "make default" command did not.

 

Settings with IE as the default browser:

IE_Version.png

 

 

Settings with Chrome as the default browser:

Chrome_Version.png

In Windows 10 you can use Settings->System->Default apps.  Scroll down to "Choose default apps by file type".  Scroll down until you see .htm and .html on the left side.  Set the app to Google Chrome.

 

I don't remember where this is in Windows 7 but if you enter "default programs" in the start window you will find it.

Didn't know about that! It's under Default Programs, then "Associate a file type or protocol with a program."
