Toolbox 2022 (OEM) New Features

Count Objects

Quickly and accurately count the instances of objects in a drawing. You can insert a table with the count data into the current drawing.

The Count feature offers visual count results and more control over the count criteria. Specify a single block or object in the model space to count its instances. You can also use the Count palette to display and manage the counted  blocks in the current drawing.

When you're in an active count, the Count toolbar displays at the top of the drawing area. The Count toolbar includes the number of objects and issues, along with other controls to manage the counted objects.

The count details icon changes depending on whether the current count contains errors. Click   or   to open the Count palette and view more details.

  • One or more drawing files can be moved onto another monitor.

New System Variables
