How to run a routine when a sheet is opened or sav

I could also use this feature. I have found 3 useful ones, however. The file shown below is called library-init.bar and is to be located somewhere in \UI\MED2D.

dialog box

Easy way to deal with local scales?

When there are details of different scales on the same sheet, the local scale must be changed, sometimes often. I made up a BacisI macro that performs various functions depending on the current text.
