Product Summary:  

Ever wish point groups acted like description keys? Ever tried to delete multiple groups? How about adding points to multiple groups?  Changing descriptions of multiple points? Creating tables of Point data (number, northing, easting, description, elevation)? AutoGroups addresses all these problems.

AutoGroups lets you delete all point groups at once.

AutoGroups allows you to create and edit an ASCII file containing point descriptions and corresponding group names and then create all the groups with one click, similar to description keys. There is also an included editor that allows editing of the ASCII file from inside LDD.

AutoGroups actually shows you a list of unique point descriptions and lets you click to add them along with a group  (or groups) name you select or enter to create associations of descriptions and groups.

AutoGroups allows you to place a table in your drawing showing point data for the group (see below)

AutoGroups allows you to find and replace incorrect point descriptions instantly (see below) 

AutoGroups allows you to select a point and list the groups it belongs to as well as add it to any number of existing groups (see below).

Lisp routine included allows you to run the 4 included routines from the command line by typing "Groups", "GroupTable", "Editpoints" and IDGroup (or whatever you want to substitute).

All you need to do is use the built in editor or edit the ASCII file included in the download (typically C:\Program  Files\AutoGroups\Grouplist.TXT) and add your associations. The format is descriptor (in quotes) followed by Group name (in quotes) as follows:

"TR12", "Only TR12"

"TR12*", "Everything starting with TR12"

"*TR12", "Everything ending with TR12"  

"*TR12*","Everything containing TR12"

"~*TR12*","Everything NOT containing TR12"

The text in the first set of quotes will be the matching parameters and the second will be the target group name.  Asterisk (*) wildcards may only be used at the beginning or end (or both) of a descriptor and tilde (~ meaning "everything but") may be used only at the beginning.
