Passing a selection set to Attedit
« on: April 13, 2005, 12:29:49 AM »
Is it possible to pass a selection set to Attedit, or is AttEdit only a global attribute editor?

I would think if you convert your sset into a list you could iterate through it using attedit in command line. Then again repeat or while will allow you to iterate through it as a sset. Although, I would think subst or vla-put- and get-text would be better options than using attedit.

Attedit a selection set

You know I have always thought the same thing.

I have an old routine I wrote back in version 11 days that allows the user to create a selection set of "blocks" and then pass the selection set to the function globally edit attributes. It is a little long to post here but if you give me your email address I can forward it to you or just email me directly
