Join Jim LaPier for an in-depth discussion in this video Command-line overview, part of AutoCAD for Mac 2015 Essential Training.
- The command-line is fairly unique in modern applications.…Some of us may remember the DOS operating system,…where every command was typed into the computer.…This evokes the mindset of complete control…of the application to almost a programming level.…If that really isn't the case in AutoCAD,…by default the command-line shows one line.…Many commands however require multiple lines…to display settings or provide results,…like the list command.…I'm gonna type in the word "list" and press Return.…You can see down in the command-line…I'm asked to select objects.…
I'm going to select my circle and press Return.…The command-line automatically expands…to show me all the information that it has…on that specific object.…In this case, the center point, the radius,…the circumference and the area.…I'll collapse this back down to one line.…And now I'm gonna adjust the command-line…so it shows three lines,…and this is personal preference,…but I find that gives me all of the options…and all of the information that I need…from the command-line.…
