    Default Viewing how Previous Objects were Created.

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    I'm trying to recreated a drawing, I did awhile ago on AutoCAD 2007 and I can't remember how I created a object. So I was wondering if there is a way I can look on the orginal drawing and somehow see how I created the object.
    Thanks.

    2D or 3D?
    You can get limited information through LI (list) or maybe Properties.
    In some cases you can even change the geometry dimensions in the Properties.
    Attach your file here if you can't figure it out.

    It's in 2D. I know how to get the properties, but what i'm looking for is to be able to view how it was created. For example if I had a circle and wanted to know how it was created I could somehow view it and it would show me that I used the ttr command or something like that. I know theres a way to view the time your objects were created and that, so I figured there would be a way to view the command used to created them.

    F2, but I suspect it is a little late for that in this case. Attach what you have.

    I'm trying to remember how I created that circle so that it perfectly intersects the 3 points. I tried using the 3P command but it isn't working.

    If anyone knows how to view commands used to created previous objects that will not be erased over time let me know. Will really help with other drawings.
