It is very common to make use of blocks in drawings. Managing and maintaining all these symbols can be a real pain. This post on the Bricsys Blog goes through some of the features recently introduced with Bricscad V12.2, that make managing blocks a whole lot easier.
Toggle Background Colour. Toggles the background colour between black and white. Note this routine will only work in Bricscad. Updated to work with AutoCAD and Bricscad. The original version is still included, as the newer version may not work for Linux Bricscad users.
There will be times when Bricscad may act strangely, or you have changed a setting that stops Bricscad from working. In these situations, creating a new user profile can be useful to reset your user settings to their defaults.
The release of Bricscad V12.2 has brought with it a raft of new VLE lisp functions, and the promise of much more to come. Info on these new functions, and their use is a little thin on the ground at the moment, so I have prepared a summary based on information kindly provided by the developer.
Companies with multiple users often use profiles to assist in configuring Bricscads many options. ThisÂ batch file will automatically import a profile on a users machine, and set it to be current.

Have you ever received a drawing from someone, but on opening the drawing find that most of it is missing, because it uses xrefs?

Do you send files to clients, only to have them call and say they need you to save the drawing to an earlier DWG version, because they can't open it?
