SBND_PICK command. Using the SuperBoundary app in Pick Point Mode


The "Pick Point" mode is a special case of the classic mode of the app. In this mode, the user is given the opportunity to interact with the application bypassing the main dialog box, which in some cases can lead to an increase in overall work efficiency.

Step 1. Launching the application

Launching the program in pick point mode is done by typing the _SBND_PICK command in the AutoCAD command line. The app can also be launched in "Pick Point" mode using the corresponding ribbon button in the "Add-ins" tab (Fig. 1):

  • "SEttings" - displays a dialog box with application settings. See the "Program settings" section for details.
  • "ABout" - displays a dialog box containing data about the program and the type of installed license. The process of loading a license key (license activation) is also carried out through this window.

Step 2. Selecting objects and adding boundaries to the drawing

The procedure for selecting source objects and adding the required boundaries to the drawing in the "Pick Point" mode (unlike in the classic mode) is carried out in one step. An approximate sequence of actions when adding boundaries in the form of closed polylines is shown in the following video:
