This routine will switch to paper space, set a few variables, then save the drawing and close it.

Frequent tipster Leonid Nemirovsky has come up with a short LISP routine that he uses to ensure his AutoCAD drawings are set properly when closed. Load the LISP file, then start the command by entering MQ at the Command prompt. This routine will switch to paper space, set a few variables, then save the drawing and close it. Feel free to add or remove code to suit your own needs. This seemingly simple routine is a very good example of condensing several steps that you do repeatedly every day into a two-letter command.
