    Default Set Plot Style-Assign Style to Layer

    Anyone ever write a routine to set an .stb current and then assign styles to individual layers? I have a few hundred drawings that I am trying to update to another companies standards. I have tried the Batch Standards Check, but can't get it to assign styles from an stb to individual layers.

    As always, thanks in advance for any input.

    I'm pretty sure I've got name-based plot styles applied to layers via layer translation. I'm going to move this thread to the AutoCAD forums since there isn't really a need for LISP.

    While LayTrans should work, I don't think there's an easy way to do this for "hundreds" of drawings. It doesn't have a command line version (at least in my 2008 ).

    Maybe use hofcad's code in post 8 of this thread: http://forums.augi.com/showthread.php?t=113590

    It should be able to send keystrokes to the dialog. So if you can figure out how to use only keyboard (no mouse clicking) to accomplish Layer Translate, then you could write a combination LSP + SCR and run the script on multiple drawings.
