Q - question

How to open a different drawing using a menu macro?

A - answer We were using this menu macro:
[Drawing A]^C^C_setvar;filedia;0;_open;D:/documentation/drawings/A.dwg;_setvar;filedia;1;
but since AutoCADu LT 2000 this doesn't work anymore.

Change the _OPEN command to _FILEOPEN:
[Drawing A]^C^C_setvar;filedia;0;_fileopen;D:/documentation/drawings/A.dwg;_setvar;filedia;1;
