    Default AutoCAD Electrical Standardization Function (Need Help!)

    Company has some outdated projects that, when they are reopened for upgrade, will require updates to title blocks, text styles, layer states, etc to current standards. Currently have scripts developed but would like to create a function in AutoCAD using VBA or AutoLISP to perform all the updates at once by typing in one command in the command line (ie. type "Project Update" or similar command and all the updates run at once) to save time from having to run the scripts.

    I am new to programming so any help at all would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!

    If you already have scripts, use ScriptPro to batch apply all the changes to multiple dwgs at once.

    Ed, thank you for the input. The only issue that I've encountered with this route is that the scripts tend to run slower than the created LISP commands. I'm not entirely sure why this is, but it makes a big difference for our drawing sets (each consisting of an average of 400+ drawings). For the scale that we work at, scripts are a bit too tedious for my liking.

    An scr can contain lisp too. Just save your lisp as an *.scr file.
