    Default How to bring in a Slide Library into AutoCAD 2006

    Once I create a slide library, how do I read it into AutoCAD 2006?

    To display a slide in a slide library (.slb extension), set FILEDIA to 0, enter ._VSLIDE and then specify the slide library file name followed by the slide file name enclosed in parentheses: slidelibrary(slide).


    ...or did you mean something else?

    rkmcswain,

    Where is the FILDEDIA located? Where do I enter _VSLIDE?

    Thanks,
    Lance

    As I understand it, both are entered at the command line.

    Remember to set FILEDIA back to 1 afterwards, otherwise you're going to be wondering where your dialog boxes went when you try to open a faile in CAD later on....

    Lance,

    If you want a slide show, you can use a script file. The "Delay" command will give you a delay in milliseconds. The "Rscript" command will allow you to repeat the script until the user hits ESC key.

    Regards,

    Abdul Huck

    Also when you are compiling your slide library, don't delete the individual slides as there is no way to edit the library once it has been created.

    There is quite a bit of info in the Acad help files which might might be worth a browse.

    Not true. There are a few tools out there that can do this.
