Does anyone have a LISP to modify all open drawings

Discussion in 'AutoCAD' started by Curtis Kostecki, Aug 5, 2003.

  1. I am looking to perform a series of cleanup utilities during a "save all"
    drawings to Autocad 2004. I started with the express tools saveall.lsp
    calling a sub function (of utilities lisp routines) -> Shown as a line from
    0,0 to 1,1 in the attached code
    However, it is only performed in the current open drawing? While all other
    saves are performed as "transparent" saves not actually accessing the actual
    I end up with a line in one drawing written over itself the same number of
    times as the quantity of open drawings.

    Can anyone suggest how this saveall lisp could be adjusted to invoke a
    subroutine on all open drawings before opening them?
    It could even close them one by one if necessary..

    Can anyone help or does anyone have a similar routine?

    Thanks in advance
