How to set a LISP variable in AutoCAD?

A - answer Many LISP utilities, including LISP utilities by CAD Studio, work with parameters preset through standard variables.

If you need to set an integer, real or string value to a given LISP variable, use the AutoLISP function (setq) - in the format (setq variable value). Just type in this function to your AutoCAD command line, add it to your menu macro, or add it to your automatically loaded file ACAD.LSP, ACADDOC.LSP or mymenu.MNL - see examples:

(setq insertc:Inc 0.1)
(setq myFilePath "C:\\TEMP")
(setq apdf:PC3name "DWG To PDF.pc3")
