For August, Harry's picks include the following:

Mirror Both Ways — Kent Cooper — This AutoCAD routine mirrors a selection set both ways — about a user-specified point at the intersection of two perpendicular axes, and at a user-specified axis angle — in one step.  

Change Object Linetype — Kent Cooper — Quickly change linetypes of selected objects in AutoCAD, with immediate feedback. This file includes a main function that does the actual work, plus several wrapper functions — one for each of the AutoCAD linetypes. 

Report Length and Area Automatically — Alan Thompson — Once loaded, this program creates a reactor that detects when you select one or more entities with a length and/or area. When these objects are selected, the length and area properties are displayed in the AutoCAD status bar.  

Place Dimensions Automatically — Amir Hossein Sattarian — A unique routine to automatically place dimensions in AutoCAD. This command works by asking you to pick two points; think of it as if you were specifying a fence to select objects.  

Easily Reload Xrefs — Leland Leahy — When working in AutoCAD, you will sometimes want to operate on an object without stopping to query the object for its layer, name, or other property. This routine enables you to reload an xref by simply picking it on the screen.

Access a Drawing Template Quickly — Mat Kirkland  — This is a quick little AutoCAD routine with a specific purpose: to open your predefined QNEW template. 

Save Extra Backup Files — Leland Leahy — This file contains three functions designed to enhance the autosave functionality in AutoCAD by providing you with extra backup copies of your working drawing.
