To determine, and set, options in the tool settings box, use the set item keyin. For example, let's suppose you want a keyin to turn on or off the Join Elements option found with the Place SmartLine tool.
Ensure the tool is started, then key in set item toolsettings. When the key-in dialog is expanded, the fourth column will show a set of named variables for the active tool.
You can then set those variables by adding =value to the end of the keyin. For example, to turn the Join Elements option off, the keyin would be set item toolsettings join=0 and to turn it on the keyin is set item toolsettings join=1
You can use these keyins in your scripts, macros, and when you're creating custom buttons or tools.
I have select 3 and education versions. In both versions, there are NO fourth column info at all from key in box. can someone help??!!
or copy paste is good too as well as save to favourites
The only thing I can recommend is to print the page to PDF at your end. A terrific little PDF driver is BullZip. Google it.
When you read something good like this. How can you save it or where do you go to get a hard copy to review and save? I sure hope a question on this is ok as a comment?
