How to store macros inside DWG drawings?

A - answer In AutoCAD (extended by installing the VBA Enabler), you can insert and execute VBA macros inside DWG files.

With the freeware application CADstudio AutoExec you can also use DWG drawings to store AutoLISP (resp. VisualLISP) macros, including .lsp, .fas, .vlx files. With the enabler module AutoExec.vlx loaded you can then automatically load and execute macros stored in opened DWG files also on other computers.

You can limit macro loaded to those macros, which were stored (signed) by the same user.
