Is there an EASY way to modify round shapes? For example if you have a .250 dia shape can you modify it to be larger or smaller without redrawing it? Thanks
I don't think you can modify the round shape. If you wanted to, you could export a sub-drawing and text edit the file to change the size, but it would probably be easier to just recreate the shape. In a simple testcase, I changed a round shape that had a 50 mil radius to a 150 mil radius by editing the sub-drawing in 4 places. See the _clpAdjustPt below. The format may not show up right. If not, create your own small test case and open the sub-drawing in your text editor. Hope this helps! (putprop _clp_cinfo (list (_clpAdjustPt -150:-150 _clp_cinfo) (_clpAdjustPt 150:150 _clp_cinfo)) 'l_extents) (putprop _clp_cinfo (_clpAdjustPt '(2050.0 1125.0) _clp_cinfo) 'l_zeropt) (unless (_clpSelectRotOrg _clp_cinfo) (error ""CANCEL"")) _clp_clip_prop_value = (_clpGetClipPropValue) (printf "" 10 percent completed"") (newline) _clp_path = (_clpPathStart (list (_clpAdjustPt 150:0 _clp_cinfo)) (_clpMKSConvert 0.000000 _clp_cinfo->t_from_units _clp_cinfo->t_to_units)) _clp_path = (_clpPathArcCenter _clp_path (_clpMKSConvert 0.000000 _clp_cinfo->t_from_units _clp_cinfo->t_to_units) (_clpAdjustPt 150:0 _clp_cinfo) nil
WOW....seems like an awful lot of work for something so simple. I think it needs to be added to a wish list. It is easier to recreate the shape, but if its a part of a symbol it looses its association to that symbol if you have to delete the shape and re-create it. Thanks for the quick reply.
