Accessing the Command
command bar: load
Displays a dialog box:
Choose an SHX file, and then click Open. Shapes are placed with the Shape command.
SHX files are compiled SHP shape files, which are used to define fonts, shapes, and complex linetypes. See the Customizing BricsCAD reference guide on creating custom shapes.
Shapes are an early version of highly efficient blocks, but are difficult to create. This command remains in BricsCAD for compatibility reasons.
Shape - inserts shapes into drawings.
