yes. Now why wouldnt that be better? If you give you menu out to others woulnt you want the give them the option to decide WHEN to use the button and not how CAN they use the button?

I hear ya, but to be completely honest, it is extremenly rare to find a drawing with blipmode on.  I just made that button more to amuse myself...;)
That is a good idea though...I'll keep it in mind for other commands in the future...

Actually those situations only occur once in a while.  Mostly are in atrrib or text cases.  One time I recall, the atrrib txt in room-name blks which came from the client were at 6" high.  Our standard is 4.5.  I tried to used attredef to fix it but all room number turn to 104 on every block.  So I have to go to each block and scale it down.

On the screen, I cannot tell the diff between 6" blk and 4.5" blk. That was when blipmode came in handy.  Now with the tick mark, I can see the blocks that had been scaled down so I did not pick them again.

The blipmode variable is stored in the registry, not the drawing.

Positive. My boss uses blipmodes and I do not. We often work on the same drawing and I've yet to see blips while working.

Also the system variable browser thing that comes in express tool for 2000i says it's stored in the registry.

blipmode is indeed stored in the registry...

Actually, it's interesting to see that someone found a use for a function that everyone else HATES.... Just shows to go that there are a million ways to do anything in CAD.....COOL, eh?


Only a Million???????????  :)  :)

Blipmode - so obnoxious!
