Join Jim LaPier for an in-depth discussion in this video Command line overview, part of Up and Running with AutoCAD for Mac.
…The command line is a fairly unique feature amongst most modern applications.…While some of us remember the days of DOS, where every…computer command was typed into a black screen with a blinking cursor.…The command line invokes the mindset of complete control of the application…to a programming level, even if that may not be the case.…In reality, the modern command line is much simpler and is…indeed unnecessary tool for fully working with AutoCAD, by default the…command line or command prompt displays one line of text,…by grabbing the top of the pallet we can drag…it to allow us to see as many lines as…text as we need, I usually recommend at least three lines.…
One for the current line, and two…above for previous commands or responses from AutoCAD.…Every command that AutoCAD has entered in the command line, even when you click…a button or a menu, that command…is actually entered down in the command prompt.…Think of working…with AutoCAD and entering a command…as beginning a conversation with the application.…
