    Unfortunately not, both those commands only use dialogue boxes, if they were allowed it would make diesel a really powerful tool, but you have to pre-select objects before running diesel. The command selectsimilar can be used but it isn't always suitable.

    Does SSX offer any additional options?
    For instance:
    If the objective was to move only LINEs in a drawing, this command macro would be able to isolate those prior to a move operation.
    Code:
    ^C^Cssx;;E;line;;move;p;;\\
