    Default "flying/popup menu?''

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Hi
    I am useing Auto CAD 2006LT and when I preform most functions I get this pop up menu appearing that follows the cursor around.
    For instance when I try to draw a line I get a pop up menu with the words"Specify first point" and the x & y numbers next to it.
    Coming from 2000i I find this way annoying and want to know if it can be switched off.
    Whats it called first and is there a way to switch it off.
    Thanks
    Richard

    It's called "Dynamic Input" and it can be toggled off by clicking the DYN button along the bottom of your screen.

    They are called 'Dynamic prompts',
    I'm not sure about LT but in the full version Tools>Drafting Settings>Dynamic Input...

    I hear you, about finding them annoying

    ...man you have to be quick around here..
