Label Entity with Break — Kent Cooper — Kent Cooper used Cadalyst CAD Tip No. 4212, “Add Text to Piping Drawings” by Theresa Lowe, as inspiration for this routine. Kent’s tip allows you to insert a text string “into” an entity; the entity is broken and the text string is placed into the break.
Label Entity with Mask — Kent Cooper — An alternate to “Label Entity with Break,” this routine uses a wipeout to mask the entity instead of breaking it.
Reload Xref Layer Properties — Benzigar Peter — This routine allows you to reload an xref while restoring the original layer properties, and not have to worry about the Visretain settings.
Scale Multiple Objects in Place — Kent Cooper — The built-in Scale command in AutoCAD will scale multiple objects, but they are all scaled together about a single reference point. Kent’s solution is to scale each object using the center of the object’s bounding box as the scale point.
