Include Reference Files in Backups — Andrea Andreetti — Normally, when AutoCAD users save a drawing, reference files are not touched, which typically means they don't get included in a daily backup. The SetArchiveBit routine, however, iterates all reference files, setting the archive bit "on" so these files will be backed up in the next daily backup.

Create Polyline from Multiple Components — Theodorus Winata — This command will ask you to select one item; as soon as you do so, all lines, arcs, and polylines on the layer of the selected entity are joined into a single polyline.
Polyline Area Labels — Peter Goern — This routine uses fields in the label that are linked to the polyline. This means if a polyline changes size, the field updates automatically depending on the value of the FieldEval system variable.

Toggle the Snap Angle — Alan Praysman — This AutoCAD routine is a toggle for changing the snap angle, or the angle of the crosshairs.

Perform Multiple Offsets with One Command — Raymond Rizkallah — You will be prompted to enter a series of offset distances separated by spaces, and then to select the object to offset. The distances you enter are retained for future use, saving you from entering them over and over.

Import Survey Points
— Chris Bell — This routine imports ASCII file data into AutoCAD as 3D survey points, complete with an attribute block listing the point properties.
