Simple and Useful
Back to some simpler coding, but useful in the tool library. Set Limits Outside Extents (Tip #1986) from Walt Bedinger zooms the drawing out to a view 105% greater than the actual drawing extents. Load the LSP module and type Setlim to run. After zooming out, the routine sets the drawing limits to the current screen view. There's nothing tricky to the coding?it just zooms to the extents, then zooms again by a scale factor. The limits are established by changing the values in the system variables.
