How about a working redefine trough toolpalletes for dynamic blocks...?

Jimmy Bergmark

Full support for 3D

Rick Moore

Here's 3 more:

Fix associative hatch, it tends to get messed up when stretching.

Make the Alignment Parameter respect the OSNAPHATCH variable.

Wipeout draworder gets reversed when entering the editor.

Hey Jimmy,
Good call on the full 3D Support.
These all are very good ones.

andrea

add ability to change dinamically arch lenght/angle- I tried to make an improved door block but I can cange the arch of the opening angle only making an arch with visibility for each angle

andrea

a graphical tree-jerarchy of the parameters coul be helpfull for complex blocks

andrea

1) ability to have different visibility states, rotation, scale and lookup in an array, so we can rotate, scale etc. differently each instance of an array.
a random variable (with a min/max option)
2) use expression and formulas that can use parameters as variables, and also logical operators, a real programming language.

andrea

properties indentation:
so to access properties of a dynamic block child of another block. (exhample: a parent block composed of different istances of a child block made of different views, and I can choose different views for each child instance from the parent block)

Dan

How about a way to add to items to an existing dynamic block? (like the add to selection set command from the old edit block in place)

JOHN DAVID

HOW ABOUT AN ARRAY ACTION THAT ARRAYS ABOUT AN POLAR AXIS USING A DIVIDE OR MEASURE ACTION EMBEDDED ALLOWING THE CREATION OF CIRCULAR STAIRS THAT CAN BE CHANGE IN LENGTH AND RADIUS AND JACK ARCHES OVER WDW'S. ALSO HAVING PROBLEMS WITH GETTING AN ARC TO RETAIN ITS RADIUS
WHILE BEING STRETCH (EX. A WINDOW W/ARCH THAT WILL CHANGES WIDTH BUT RETAINS ITS HEIGHT).
(NEXT IS A DUMB SOLUTION BUT IT WORKS)I MADE A DYNAMIC BLOCK CALLED DOORS FULL OF DIFFERENT DOORS TO BE DISPLAYED IN PLAN VIEW BUT THEN I HAD TO COPY THEM UNTIL EACH VISIBILITY STATE HAD ITS OWN CHANCE TO BE AT TOP THE VISIBILITY MODE SO I COULD USE A LISP ROUTINE TO ALTER VISIBILITY DURING INSERTION.
(IT ONLY SUCKS IF I HAVE TO MAKE A FIX TO ONE OF THE DOORS, CAUSE THEN I HAVE MAKE THE SAME FIX IN ALL OF THEM.
I WANT ACCESS TO A TABLE CONTENTS WHILE IT IS STILL INSIDE A BLOCK TO CHANGE THE OBJECT THE FIELD IS REFERENCED TO. WHEN USING A TABLE WITH FIELDS OUTSIDE A BLOCK I AM ABLE TO UPDATE THEM BUT I STILL HAVE THE PROBLEM OF THE FORMULA. IT DOESN'T ADDED THE DISPLAYED FIELDS CORRECTLY BECAUSE AUTOCAD USES ITS OWN DAMN UNITS TO ADD THEM TOGETHER WITH AND THEN IT CALCULATES USING THE CONVERSION UNITS THAT DISPLAY THE VALUE IN ARCH UNITS. AND WHY DO I HAVE TO SPECIFY WHETHER I WANT A COMMA IN THE THOUSANDS(DUH IF I AM USING ARCH UNITS THEN OF COURSE I AM GOING TO WANT TO SHOW A COMMA) AND WHEN U DO SELECT A COMMA IT TURNS THE UNITS FORMAT INTO DECIMAL (WHILE RETAINING THE UNIT CONVER). WHICH GENERAL SPEAKING DECIMAL IS FOR METRIC BECAUSE WHEN THE THOUSANDS ARE REACH THE NAME CHANGES(EX. METERS TURN INTO KILOMETERS) IN ARCH UNITS 1,000 FEET CAN ONLY BE REFERRED TO AS A 1,000 FEET. (NO BRAINIER) ALSO I WOULD LIKE FOR THE FORMAT OF THE FIELD TO RETAIN ITS SETTINGS AFTER THE FIELDS IS REFERENCED TO A NEW OBJECT OR MAYBE A PERSONAL SETTING THAT CAN BE SAVED SO I DON'T HAVE TO START FROM SCRATCH WHEN I CHANGE FROM ONE OBJECT TO ANOTHER.
NEXT IN SOME SITUATION I WILL ISSUE THE SNAP "FROM POINT" COMMAND AND IT WILL NOT ALLOW ME TO USE THE POLAR TRACKING TO POINT THE DIRECTION IN WHICH I WANT TO SNAP FROM. NEXT OBJECTS THAT ARE DRAWN FIRST IN A DYNAMIC BLOCK ALWAYS GET PUT IN BACK OF THE DRAW ORDER EVEN AFTER REPEATEDLY BEING TOLD TO BE UP FRONT. I CAN'T TELL BECAUSE IF I DON'T GET A WIPEOUT DRAWN BEFORE ANY OF THE OTHER OBJECTS THEN THE WIPEOUT WILL ALWAYS HIDE SOMETHING ESPECIALLY WHEN THE BLOCK IS PULLED FROM THE TOOL PALETTE AND/OR COPY AND PASTED FROM ANOTHER DRAWING.
