    Filter out obejcts that are not in snap.

    Hey,

    I've ended up with a big batch of dwg files with circuit diagrams that I need to change.
    I found out that 60% of all objects are out of snap, which is a pain in the a** when it comes to changes.

    Is there any good way of filtering or highlighting all objects in a dwg that are not in snap?

    Regards

    Maybe it could be done using a custom lisp routine?

    usually I use snaps in either 2.5 or 5units so. Basically this would highlight all objects that are in/not multipliers of either.
    So for an example an object placed on 0,2.5 would be discarded and the object that ended up on 0,4.99 would be highlighted.

    My knowledge within lisp is limited, are there any good examples you could point me at?

    You can take a look at this but I doubt it will make much sense to you.

    This one which works on text objects could probably be adapted to work on objects other than text.
