How can I make AutoCAD show the batch scripts progress?

You can add the following line of code to either

1)The User Script

2)The Settings Tab -> PreUserScript

(setvar "modemacro" "Drawing $COUNTER$ of $FILECOUNTINQUEUE$")

This will display a small message in the AutoCAD Status-bar which will indicate which drawing is currently being processed, while the script is being run.

You will notice in your compiled script that the $COUNTER$ and $FILECOUNTINQUEUE$ values have been substituted to values, and this line of code changes as the script progresses. Please see User TAGS for more information.
