Scratch! v. 1.2 released

Scratch – the scratchpad layer utility for AutoCAD – has been updated to version 1.2!

Download Scratch 1.2 here.

Hard to believe its been over a year since I released an update to Scratch.  This update is kind of a sea change for the program, see the notes below.  On another note, this is the last release I am going to issue; I use it every day, and it hasn’t been an active development project for a while.  I might post a short screencast describing how to use it.  I hope you get as much use out of it as I have.  And be forewarned, I’ve got some really cool stuff I’ve been working on.

Usage:

Note: the ` symbol is a backtick (next to the 1 key)

  • command: ` – toggle between scratchpad layer and the current layer
  • command: e` – erase scratchpad (menu)
    • option: a – erase everything in scratchpad layer
    • option: p – preview all objects in scratchpad layer
    • option: s – erase only selected objects in scratchpad layer
  • command: m` – move selected objects to the scratchpad layer
  • command: 1` – jumps to previous layer

Release notes:

  • changed CST command to `
  • changed EST command to e`
  • added options to the erase constructions (e`) command
  • added move object(s) to scratch layer command (x`)
