Tip 2268: Mass Drawing Clean-Up
Michael Kolomiyets submitted Mass Drawing Clean-Up, which consists of one LISP and one dialog box DCL file. This program will process drawings in a folder and remove the $ strings from table references (layers, blocks, etc) caused by external references. This example is very robust, but it requires some tinkering. (For example, if you are using AutoCAD 2008, adjust the .16 to .17 in the VLA interfaces request.) This tip is intended for advanced AutoCAD systems managers who want to manipulate quantities of drawings with Visual LISP. The best feature of this tip is that it shows how to open other drawings in Visual LISP while keeping them in the background. All Harry could say was, "Very cool."
