I'm trying to use the explode all script to explode an exported Revit ->AutoCAD file in AutoCAD 2009. One main goal is to explode the text so that it changes from TrueType Arial to Shape Font RomanS. It works fine from the command line in AutoCAD 2009, except for a Dialog box that pops up saying:
AUTOCAD Alert
This operation may take a long time.
To greatly improve performance, the system can disregard Draw Order.

Disregard Draw order?
YES NO

This does not pop up when the script is running, but it also does not explode the text, it just runs thru a list of "this item cannot be exploded"...

Here is the script:

_explode
ALL
_explode
ALL
_explode
ALL
ltscale
96

Anyone have any ideas? All we are trying to do is explode everything so our consultants can use the dwgs for background and be able to turn off the correct layers and not have truetype text blocking elements in the plan. Is there a better way to do this?

Thanks
Tim

Hi,

I haven't tested this yet, but I believe you should have an extra carriage return. Also, throw a regen in there, so the drawing database gets updated. I've seen some strange results if you don't regen, but it is optional.

;start
_explode
ALL

regen
_explode
ALL

regen
_explode
ALL

;end


As for the dialog box that pops up... seems in some commands in AutoCAD it is smart enough to see you are running it from a script and suppresses the dialog boxes itself (just for programs such as Hurricane)

Let me know if the above worked better for you!

Regards
