NEST v1.03.02 UPDATED by Donald Butler is a revolutionary new way to modify color, Layer, Plotstyle, Linetype, Linetype Scale, Line Weight and even Visibility of most AutoCAD objects, even ones buried deep inside of blocks or Xrefs. Once you've used NEST, you'll wonder how you got by without it. Have you ever wanted to change some or all objects in a block to ByLayer or to a certain color? It's easy with NEST. How about the ability to hide certain attributes? Nothing to it. Say you have a block inside a block with an attribute, such as a date, you'd like to edit. AttEdit won't work but NEST will and you guessed it, it's easy. A typical use is this, you're in a mad rush as usual and go to plot an Xref'ed drawing and find colors or plotstyles have been hardcoded by a well meaning consultant. Since you want to control the plot with your layer settings, what do you do? Open up the Xref's and edit them? Refedit? Maybe, but it's easier with NEST around. NEST operates on an elementary level, independent of layer settings. You operate on entire groups of objects or just a single nested object. Selection and Nested Object Filtering allows you to choose just the types of objects to modify, such as the ability to modify just the circles or attributes in a nested insert. Xref's are not physically touched and revert to their saved states the next time their re-loaded. A unique feature is called DEA or Direct Entity Access. This unique feature allows selection by crossing window, crossing polygon or fence of objects inside blocks! You'll need to play with this to get the hang of it. Another feature is the ability to open an Xref for editing by just clicking on it. Sorry, NEST works only with AutoCAD 2000 at this time minumum 800x600 screen resolution! NOTE: Please take the time to read the on-line help file while using.
