    Default LISP Command names and shortcuts

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    I'm posting here because I think this is more of a management questions than a lisp question.

    My question is this;

    if you have a suite of lisps, do you give the command names "shortcut" names or full descriptive names?

    For example, I have a command that I call "COPYRADIAL". in my lisp that's what you use to call it.

    Code:
    (defun C:COPYRADIAL (/)...etc
    Some people might just use

    Code:
    (defun c:CR (/)...etc
    I don't use a shortcut because I don't want to inadvertently override a users personal pgp customizations, or an ACAD shortcut I just missed.

    The only downside is some users are not savvy enough to figure out how to customize their shortcuts. (i know, i know).

    How do you CAD managers approach this?

    With autocad's autocomplete function, lately, I have had longer command names, since it's easy to use once you've typed them in a couple times.
