ASSIGN CONTOURS
Tip #1878 [FIX-CONT.LSP]
Here s a tip for those who work with contours. This routine changes the selected items to the correct layer based on their z elevation. I use this to fix contours from surveyors with poor layer control. Select all the contours and the index of the major contours. It s very handy and saves tons of time.

COPY ATTRIBUTES
Tip #1881 [ATTRIB-COPY.LSP]
This routine copies the text value of an object to another object. You can pick attributes, text strings, text stings within a block, or mtext in any combination. It even copies text values from an externally referenced drawing to objects in the current drawing.You just pick the object to copy and then pick the object you want to change, or press to change multiple objects. Be careful when copying to a block. If you copy a text value over a text object within a block that is not an attribute, the routine redefines the block.

FOLLOW THE LEADERS
Tip #1882 [LEADERS.ZIP]
These four AutoLISP routines draw specialized leaders (figure 1). LDRSETUP.LSP is a routine designed to set the options for the leaders. It includes drawing scale, arrow size, and an option that forces the arrows to a continuous linetype. LEADER1.LSP is the simplest a straight leader with no text. After you place both arrows, LEADER4.LSP restores the crosshairs to their original angle. LEADER6.LSP is created with the
polyline as one object. LEADER7.LSP is for location maps.The arrow size is based on how far the second point is from the start of the arrow. Read theLEADERS.TXT file for specific instructions.
