General discussion about BabaCAD / Re: Feet/inch settings

Use command UNITS. Type 'UNITS' <enter> in command-line and choose 'E' (engineering - feet) or choose option 'A' (architectural - inches).

I found this AutoCAD's .lsp on the internet and it works in BabaCAD also (just copy the code to dist.lsp file, copy dist.lsp to Support/LISP and add 'lisp\disp.lsp' (without quotes) to Support/bcad.mnu below the **LISP (lisp load section) to have dist.lsp loaded on startup). You can also add an icon for DIST command (would be placed into 'LISP Examples' menu), and everything is explained at the top of bcad.mnu file.

To get distance measured, type DIST in command line and specify points to print out measurement value on the command line.

(defun c:DIST ()
(setq x1 (getpoint "\nSelect First Point: "))
(setq x2 (getpoint x1 "\nSelect Second Point: "))
(prompt (strcat "\nTotal Distance = " (distance x1 x2)))
(princ)
)

OK, not what I really wanted, but it is a work around.
When you've pasted a number of different objects, say a number of different sized kitchen units in a line, there is no single line or polyline to measure. Drawing a line for the total distance confirms the measurement and is a work around, but in autocad and draughtsight they have a tape measure, just click on the two furthest corners and get a distance.

Ok thanks. I was trying to do it on a rectangle and as it wasn't on the OSNAP dropdown assumed it didn't exist.
Thanks for clarifying

BabaCAD has "Properties" palette/window (on the right app's side). When line or polyline object is selected, "Length" attribute in "Properties" shows current length of selected line/polyline. For multiple selected objects, lisp command can be coded. I suppose that lisp already exists on the net, but if not I can write that lisp command and post it here. Then you just copy lisp command code to lineslen.lsp (create a new txt file in notepad) and copy .lsp file to Support/Lisp folder. Run command APPLOAD and choose that .lsp before command LINESLEN to execute. Also you can add lineslen.lsp to bcad.mnu (located in Support folder of BabaCAD installation; Program Files/BabaCAD/BabaCAD 2020...).to be loaded on BabaCAD startup.

Mid-point OSnap already exists. It works on LINE objects. Draw line object. Start another drawing command (another LINE or ARC/CIRCLE) and move cursor near the middle of the line object and OSnap will snap to mid-point (orange rectangle marker shows on), same like it activates on end-points.

Can you add mid-point onto OSAP?

Is there a measure command or tape measure?
I realise you can always put a dimension on something then delete it, but I was looking for a quicker way to check the length of something?

You're welcome. Thank you for using BabaCAD. I don't have wine here, but I have some pepsi in the fridge. It's raining here in Sarajevo, but ideal evening for watching movies and #stayathome :)
