KCS Productivity PackWin32 and 64, English
General Usage Instructions
In addition to the many commands, this add-on also provides an Auto-Layer feature that places Dimensions, Text, Leaders, and designated annotation symbols automatically on the appropriate layer for each. This works for standard AutoCAD commands – it does not require the use of custom commands.
In addition, KCS provides the ability to include the current dimscale and an optional drawing type prefix or suffix to these layers. This can be a great help if you place dimensions and text in model space and want to have separate layers for different scales and drawing types in the same drawing.
All this is controlled in the KCS Options dialog. The KCS Options dialog also contains the settings for the five KCS Text Macros. These macros will automatically provide the kind of text you wish to place, at the desired style and size, and on the desired layer, which will also include any dimscale and dwgtype component (if set – as described above). If the desired text style is not already present, it will be created with the font specified in the settings.
Reference point options are also included in the ribbon, including Reference point, Mid of two points, Fractional distance between two points, and hold X, Y, or Z. These may be employed during any command whenever a point is being requested.

Auto-Layering options are set here - specify what layers for your annotation (text, dimensions, leaders, and whatever block symbols you designate as annotation). Prefix and/or suffix and/or drawing scale may be (optionally) set here as well. Your choice of text style, font, size, and layer for KCS text macros is also set here.

Macros may be filtered by assigned Category, for easier access. Fully customizable - you can revise macro names and/or add your own. Same with Categories. If you know a bit of LISP, you will find the instructions in the Macros.lsp file simple enough to follow. Access for editing is just a click away from the dialog.
