QuickSymb is a block manager for Autocad 2000/2000i, to simplify inserting blocks (symbols). QuickSymb is programmed in Visual basic 6,0 (VBA).
How QuickSymb is functionning?
The goal of QuickSymb is, to be in a position as an user to create a "symbol root", i.e. a directory with any path on any drive or server release. No power user is needed to create and manage picture menus.
This "symbol root" can contain any subfolders, which can be selected in a combobox.
If the user is starting QuickSymb, this "symbol root" as well as the included files will be readed automatically.
The autocad files are represented as thumbnails in blocks of 20 (on the basis of preview pictures of autocad files).
After click on a picture (thumbnail) it is requested to pick an insert point and the file will be inserted at this point into the actual drawing.
Optional the button "Further blocks insert" can be marked. After put in a block into the drawing, the user will be back to the same place and he will be able to insert a further block.
It is impossible to leave the defined symbol root.
