Is it Possible To Create Autonumber Command?

Is it Possible To Create Autonumber Command?

Is it Possible To Create Autonumber Command?

I've recently started using Draftsight instead of Autocad LT and wondered if autonumbering is possible. For Autocad I had a copy of some old LTXpress tools that included autonumber but they don't seem to work with Draftsight
The commabd string is *^C^Ctext;_m;\;;$M=$(getvar,USERI1);setvar;USERI1;$(+,1,$(getvar,USERI1))
Is it possible to modify it to work with Draftsight, I don't have any idea why it doesn't work - I'm clueless when it comes to creating scripts etc


RE: Is it Possible To Create Autonumber Command?

I thought that Autolisp won't work in Draftsight but I may be wrong. I know that
Draftsight does have script capability but what you have may be too sophisticated for a script.

This is somewhat off topic but Draftsight does recognize the Autocad acad.pgp file. This is a file
to create aliases in Autocad. It is kind of a hassle installing it but if you have Autocad aliases already
created it is a good way to create command aliases in Draftsight.
