Most commands in Stringer Topo have a keyboard shortcut - some are long and some are short. The links below include details of all keyboard shortcuts alignment with menu commands as shown on the Stringer Topo Ribbon (as per Version 19.021). If you prefer keyboard commands to navigating the menu systems, this reference document will help you become acquainted with each.
This message will only display for customers who updated from Stringer Topo V18 versions. The message displays because we added instructions in the file on_doc_load.lsp (located in C:\Program Files\Bricsys\BricsCAD V18 en_US\Support) to load SA_Stringer.lsp.
You can either delete the on_doc_load.lsp file (if there is nothing else in the file) or you can edit the file. You need to open the file in Notepad and remove all instances of the following text:
First make sure that the code you are after is in the Description Key Set (DKS), if it is then do the steps below. If it isn't you will need to add a new code to the DKS so it can be used below as well.
If you want to create a new code in the Stringer Settings this is how you would do it below.
-Click on Stringer Settings (make sure you have your CSV file set as current) -Find a code that is going to be about the same as the one you are adding in - click on the new button bottom left
-This will make a copy of that code - double click in the code and change the code to what you require
-Then select what TYPE of line it is going to be (3d Breakline, 2d Join Only or 3d Polyline) -Select the 2d layer you want the string to go on -Select the 3d Layer you want the 3d layer to go on (3d layer is normally only 1 layer as it is only required to create the breaklines in the drawing) -Click OK
Once that has been created, go and click on Join All Codes again and now it will be strung in the drawing and also added as a breakline in the surface. That code will now always be in the Stringer Settings CSV file for the next time you use that code.
To make the blocks behave like annotative text, you need to go to the drawing explorer and select the "blocks" tab, then select the blocks you wish to make annotative nd then click in the "Annotative" column
Once this has been done, you can then select the block in the model space and then in the Properties bar under the "Misc" section there is an "Annotative scale"
If you want to use the right click shortcut menu's in BricsCAD, make sure in the options the are set up like the image below. Just type in Shortcut at the top and it will take you to this position
You can then add more than one scale to the list if you want , depending on how many different viewport scales you have and what you want to see in each of them. The block will now show up in the correct viewport with the scale needed for the right annotative scale.
