Sample text

For example, you can start the LINE command, run the ZOOM command transparently, and then pick up where you left off with the LINE command. ߜ Leave the command line in the default configuration initially. The command window, like most other parts of the AutoCAD screen, is resizable and relocateable. The default location (docked at the bottom of the AutoCAD screen) and size (three lines deep) work well for most people. Resist the temptation to mess with the command window’s appearance — at least until you’re comfortable with how to use the command line.

If you’re watching the command line, you’ll absorb the command names more-or-less naturally. When AutoCAD types commands automatically in response to your toolbar and menu clicks, it usually adds one or two extra characters to the front of the command name. • AutoCAD usually puts an underscore in front of the command name (for example, _LINE instead of LINE). The underscore is an Autodesk programmers’ trick that enables non-English versions of AutoCAD to understand the English command names that are embedded in the menus.

Running Object Snap (OSNAP) and Object Snap Tracking (OTRACK) buttons: Object snap is another AutoCAD tool for ensuring precision drawing and editing. You use object snaps to grab points on existing objects — for example, the endpoint of a line or the center of a circle. • When you turn on running object snap, AutoCAD continues to hunt for object snap points. Chapter 5 contains detailed instructions on how to use this feature. • When you turn on object snap tracking, AutoCAD hunts in a more sophisticated way for points that are derived from object snap points.
