dude.  crap in a can, that's cool... I went to see if that was the same for "tframes' command... and it doesn't even list TFRAMES in the help file :-o  I'll just keep using imageframes from now on... that works for wipeouts too?  the help file seemed to insinuate that it's only for referenced images.

uh... ^-^...as long as you keep the can...

TFRAMES is part of the Express Tools.  It controls the system var 'imageframe'.  All TFRAMES does is turn the frame either on or off.  In order to get the third option you have to issue the imageframe command at the command line.

that explains why I didn't find it in the help file... I didn't look in the express tools help.

This is kind of silly... why update imageframe and not tframes.... actually... why HAVE 'tframes' ?

The Express Tools are not 'supported' thus they don't get updated like we wish they would.  Actually I don't think they have been updated (except for version control) since R2000.  It does seem like the more popular ones eventually get integrated in the base product though.

But the imageframe has no affect on the a wipeout though it is a raster image. 

I just tried it with a wipeout but got nothing.  Hopefully I did something wrong.
I + XI = X is true ...  ... if you change your perspective.

That's what I was wondering... for some reason I think I remember doing a couple different things and telling myself to always use TFRAMES.

I have a bad habit of knowing that there is a reason I am doing something a certain way... and forgetting why.

A wipeout is a polygonal area that hides whats under it when it is turned off.  It only has a frame so it can be selectable.  An image has a frame to make it selectable not to hide things under it.  They are two different objects with a small amount of overlap.  Sorry if there was any confusion on my part.

Here is a sample of how a client has decided to use Visibility states with Sheet Set Values embedded in their title block.  BEWARE the 'feature' that setting the "Lock Position" to on will cause the Attributes to become invisible; and not in a good way.

well i stopped paying much attention to it because once again there was very little participation. This place used to be very productive but nowadays I see more discussions about what music people are listening to than anything cad related  :roll:

Maybe you aren't looking hard enough?  Or... in the right forum... you get outside of Lagniappe, right?

How do you force the wipeout to the back?  I keep going into Bedit and sending to back, but as soon as I save, it comes back to the front.  Do you have to draw the wipeout first?

draworder and when you go in to update them, use regen. It should set it right.

Try setting the draworder when are not in the BE mode; where you see just the lines not the dynamics stuff. 
But then again I have separate files for my blocks
