Re: Finding a text string in an AutoCAD drawing

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Hello,
 
For ACAD14-
 
You could use the FIND command.  You don't have to know where in the drawing the text is, which could still be a down side, but if you just simply want to erase it, this should work.
First zoom to extents
Type FIND
Enter the string you want to erase in the find box.
Don't enter anything in the replace box.
Say ok.
With a crossing window, select everything on the screen.  That is, click in the extreme lower right corner and then the extreme upper left corner.
Click on REPLACE in the dialog box that comes up next.
 
If you really need to know where the text string is, perhaps you can keep your eyes peeled for the void space that suddenly appears in your dwg.
 
Good luck,
 
Byron Benson

Subject: Finding a text string in an AutoCAD drawing

Does anyone have an AutoCAD lisp routing that will scale a specified
text string by an input factor?

I have an extra callout on one of my plan sheets that I have not been
able to find.  My thought is that if I can get a lisp routine to scale
it up by a factor of 100, it would be easy to find and delete.

If anybody has any other suggestions to find the errant text string,
advice would be greatly appreciated.
