Q - question

What for is the INTELLIGENTUPDATE AutoCAD variable?

A - answer This variable can make scripts and LISP applications run faster in AutoCAD 2006 (and higher). AutoCAD screen refresh rate is set by it to a maximum of N updates per second (the default value is 20) - possible more frequent display changes (invoked by the running application) are suppressed/postponed. Repeating and/or animated screen updates are accelerated (incl. LISP Games).

This new AutoCAD behaviour can be disabled by setting INTELLIGENTUPDATE to 0.
