Importing C3D Styles into multiple drawings

Have you ever had to update multiple drawings with updated C3D styles?

Here is how you do it.

Turn "filedia" OFF

Put in your directory Path and Filename you want to be updated.

Turn "cmddia" OFF

"importstylesandsettings" is the command to import the styles

Put the DWG or DWT file you want to import with new styles here

"Y" overwrites the current styles in DWG

Turn "cmddia" ON

qsave and close dwg

Start the proccess all over again.

Here is how to get a quick list of all the dwgs you need to import:

From Windows run "CMD" this will get you into the command line of windows. Go under the dir. and Type: dir *.dwg /o > list.txt

This will give you a ascii file to start out with that has all the DWG's in it.
