|Renovation 15.09.2010||SETTING of GEOL_DH and KAI-2001|
It is recommended to copy all support files (fonts, linetypes, templates) and also if necessary the file with description of ACAD.PGP command aliases etc, from COMMON_FILES\ACAD_SUPPORT_FILES folder to one of PROGRAMS folder (or folders assigned by AutoCAD for these types of files). Or assign AutoCAD support file search path for this folder.
Program messages can be output in 2 languages, Russian (default) and English.
Message language setting can be done by Settings option of GEOL_MIS program (for KAI-2001 applications in files application_name.SET), or in file automatically executed during opening a drawing (for example, ACAD.LSP, ACADDOC.LSP, menu_name.MNL). Example of LISP code see in files menu_name.MNL.
In attached menu_name.MNL files launched automatically prior to loading menu with same name, is carried out language setting depending on SYSCODEPAGE system variable. If SYSCODEPAGE value is equal to “ANSI_1251” (Russian table of codes), Russian language of messages is set automatically, while other code tables will set English language.
Note: Instead of Russian language of messages it is possible set another language. It is necessary to translate Russian messages in GEOL_MES.LSP, in corresponding application_name.SET files and in DCL files.
Commands language (English or Russian) setting is carried out only by Settings option of GEOL_MIS program (default is English language). For KAI-2001 application commands language id English only.
Program parameters setting is carried out by Settings option of GEOL_MIS program. Also here are carried out settings of fields delimiter type for text data files (default is comma), values output accuracy etc (see chapter COMMON PARAMETERS).
In Windows operating system (Control panel, Regional and Language Options, Numbers tab) you should assign full point as decimal symbol and comma as list separator.
Note: If you assign another field delimiters (Settings option of GEOL_MIS program), you should correct Windows settings also.
Program parameters setting by default for KAI-2001 application is carried out in application_name.SET files.
All FAS, LSP, BMP, MNU, SET and DCL files must be located in assigned support file search path.
If invoking parameter dialogue box makes AutoCAD display an error about insufficient screen size for parameters dialog box display, screen resolution in pixels should be increased or screen fonts size should be decreased (see documentation on Windows operating system). After these changes AutoCAD needs to be restarted.
Screen resolution must be 1024õ768 and more.
In current menu file GEOL_DH_ENG.MNS and/or KAI_ENG.MNS, created automatically by AutoCAD after loading MNU menu templates, you can correct names of items, sections and other parameters, make comments out of unnecessary lines (by two slashes // in the beginning of line). It is not recommended to alter MNU templates.
For KAI menu some system applications (SYSTEMS section) and menu sections for block operations (FORMATS and STAMPS sections and subsequent ones) can be unavailable if these applications have not been found or neither of two drawings of given menu section can be found. List of DWG files to be checked is included in a function in KAI.MNL file.
Note: Asterisk (*) before KAI menu item means presence of icon for it. Asterisk (*) after utility name means that application has no help file (obsolete applications and functions).
Suggested settings for ***ACCELERATORS section of main AutoCAD menu ACAD.MNS and AutoCAD command aliases by KAI standars worked out in 12 years of work in AutoCAD is listed in KAI_ACAD_PGP.DOC file (ACAD_SUPPORT_FILES folder), recommended for printing and having at hand.
For running external commands and AutoCAD command aliases see ACAD.PGP file which reiterates standard AutoCAD file with added changes in the end of file sections (i.e. standard command aliases are redefined or new aliases are added).
To set up AutoCAD by given standard it is necessary to:
Note: User defines whether to use attached ACAD.PGP file.
GEOL_DH and KAI-2001 applications are launched by selecting corresponding menu item or icon, at that time automatic program loading and execution occur. Also the program can be invoked by typing program name in command prompt, typing command alias or using hotkeys (provided it had already been launched previously through menu or icon, or was preliminarily loaded by means of AutoCAD, for instance, by Appload command or by other methods).
Often used KAI-2001 application with sort names are loading automatically (in application_name.MNL).
To update versions of programs by hand you should copy new program files (exchanging old ones) to corresponding folder, remove read-only attribute from program files and, as a rule, reload menu.
After version 7.75 slightly changed names of layers and blocks. New layer names were assigned reasoning from necessity: to enter filter immediately by layer groups; to show created later objects closer to the beginning of layers list; to move other layers (with objects without information) to the end of layers list, to shorten as possible name lengths.
Renaming of previously created layers and blocks is performed automatically during first launch of any of GEOL_DH utilities, after that for information is displayed message about number of renamed layers and blocks. It is recommended after that to remove by PURGE command all unused layers and blocks beginning with GDH_.
During loading and execution of programs of other developers there is, though very small, chance of program incompatibility (using same functions, variable names).
In order to deinstall the program, it is enough to unload menu (Menuload command) and remove references to the program’s folders (File tab, Options command) and then remove all files of the program from disk.
