Osnap Lisp routine

Osnap Lisp routine

Osnap Lisp routine

Does anyone know of a lisp routine that will allow you to use hot keys instead of having to type end or pick the endpoint button? I would appreciate any suggestions.

RE: Osnap Lisp routine

You might want to assign snaps to function keys, or "control+key" combinations.  Do this by editing your acad.mns file in the **ACCELERATORS** section.  For example to make the "F12" the endpoint snap add the following line:


then restart AutoCAD to have changes take effect, or use the "menu" command and reload acad.mns.

RE: Osnap Lisp routine

I have the following "hot keys" programmed in a lisp routine that gets automatically loaded
(defun C:LI () (command "LINE""QUICK,INT")(prin1))
(defun C:LE () (command "LINE""QUICK,END")(prin1))
(defun C:LM () (command "LINE""QUICK,MID")(prin1))
(defun C:LN () (command "LINE""QUICK,NEA")(prin1))
(defun C:LC () (command "LINE""QUICK,CEN")(prin1))

Make sure that the combinations do not interfere with command you already currently use
