command alias

We’re back with a new Have You Tried and some new tips to make your life a little easier!

You can use command aliases and shortcut keys to start a command without moving the mouse cursor between the drawing area and the AutoCAD user interface (UI). Command aliases and shortcut keys can be easier to remember than the full command name. Creating your own command aliases and shortcut keys can also help you be more efficient.

In this new Have You Tried, we’ll cover:

  • Adding and using command aliases
  • Creating and using simple Lisp commands to use as command aliases
  • Adding and using shortcut keys
  • How AutoCorrect works and its settings

Learn how you can use command aliases and shortcut keys to become more efficient with the step-by-step examples in Have You Tried: Command Aliases, Shortcut Keys, and AutoCorrect.
