Wanna have some malicious fun?  Change the DIMTMOVE variable to 1 or 2.  Your (was) friend, (now) enemy will never figure that one out.   There are a whole bunch of variables out there that do some really wierd things. :lol:

I have a button that puts things back to where I want them.  I've posted this many times in "the other" forum but here goes again.  Keep in mind that I work almost exclusively in 3D so many of the variables are for that purpose.  Some lisp routines change your settings and then don't put them back where they were.  You can't keep adding as fires flare up because you're limited to 256 characters (I think??) but it does save allot of time on the front end.

^C^COSMODE 2303 DISPSILH 1 FACETRES 10 VIEWRES Y 20000 ISOLINES 21 UCSICON ON UCSICON N SNAPANG 0 SURFTAB1 12 DIMASO ON WHIPARC 1 SURFTAB2 12 DONUTID 0 DONUTOD .125 FACETRATIO 1 PROJMODE 2 SKPOLY 1 HIGHLIGHT 1 EXPERT 5 DIMLFAC 1 VISRETAIN 1 LTSCALE 1 FILLETRAD 0 DIMASSOC 2 PICKADD 1 DIMLWD -1 DIMLWE -1 UCS W HIDEPRECISION 1 INDEXCTL 3 DIMCLRD 256 DIMCLRE 256

Heck, obviously I don't fully understand what I'm doing.  I just checked the above and it has 296 characters (no spaces) and 360 with spaces.  Oh well, back to the drawing board.  I  must be getting like t-bear.  I believe one of his posts said that his memory is the shortest thing he's got - according to his wife.

I have to say malicious and fun are words that don't belong together; no good can come of this. Yes, I have experience to draw upon (oooh, good drafting pun).

My advice: Don't do it.
