For October, Harry's picks include the following:
Determine Distance between Points on an Entity — Alan Thompson — Pick any two points on a valid object (line, circle, arc, polyline, spline, etc.) and the distance along the object between those two points is reported — no more tracing polyline segments or making a copy of an object and breaking it.
Zoom Extents in All Layouts — Alan Thompson — If you work with multiple layouts in AutoCAD, this is a quick way to ensure that each one is zoomed to its extents.
Linear Entity Bisector — Kent Cooper — Create a bisecting angle entity for virtually any two linear objects selected. If you pick an unsupported entity, such as a circle, arc, spline, or text, the program will simply ask you to pick again.
Rename a Pasted Block — Kent Cooper — Choose a block insertion on the screen and give it a new name without having to list its current name first.
Rotate Multiple Blocks — Theodorus Winata — This simple but powerful routine allows you to rotate multiple blocks about their insertion point, to an angle relative to each individual block's current angle.
Modemacro Tip — Matt Sibum — Use the Modemacro system variable to cause the status bar area of AutoCAD to display useful information.
Improved Layer Freeze — Matt Sibum — Unlike the Layer Freeze AutoCAD command, with this routine you can pick an object on the current layer.
