  1. Hi, Recently been testing the water with writing scripts to try and automate some of the functions that I do repetitively so a newbie to this. Unfortunately only have access to AutoCAD LT so can't use LISP or anything. Have tried the ^C^C and (command) suggested in other forums. Essentially my script something like this: -layer set Datum LINE 0,-14000 850000,-14000 -INSERT BLOCK1 10000,20000 1 1 0 20000,20000 1 1 0 30000,20000 1 1 0 -INSERT BLOCK2 37000,7000 1 1 0 When I run it in CAD it keeps asking for an insertion point for BLOCK1 (even though I don't want more than 3 in the drawing) - how do I escape this command and move onto next line of commands (insert BLOCK2). Essentially I want equivalent of escape key. Can't find answer anywhere. Thanks in advance
  2. Hello, I'm having some trouble with assigning a new shortcut key to the Cancel command alongside with ESCAPE. I have followed this guide: https://knowledge.autodesk.com/support/autocad/troubleshooting/caas/sfdcarticles/sfdcarticles/Redefining-F1-key-to-use-Cancel-command.html And also tried just dragged the Cancel command to the keyboard shortcuts. However, it does not cancel the way that ESCAPE does. The command pane does not say anything. Although when for example Circle tool is active, when pressing the newly assigned F1 key, it seems to cancel the tool. But if I want to cancel a selection, nothing happens. It adds an empty row in the command history. If I have ^C^C (double), it adds two empty rows. Shouldn't it say "*cancel*"? What am I doing wrong? Thank you!
  3. Hi All ive read in old posts from 2010 that Photoshop can steal your escape key. however i don't have any adobe products that i am aware of. so i started a new thread also i select a line or other entity and hit delete, and only some of the time it will delete. anyone have any ideas? these keys work fine otherwise.

    ESC User Input

    Is there anyway to check to see if the user has inputted into the command line and using a lisp, to tell that as soon as the user has pressed esc to not only cancel the command but to also set quantities?
  5. I am working on a drawing with very large polygons with hundreds of verticies. When one of these polygons are selected, either purposely or by accident, it takes a considerable amount of time for the selection process to run its course. I have tried to turn off properties but that didn't help. Ultimately it would be ideal if you could escape out of this selection process if you decided you did not want to wait. Unfortunately the escape key works only after the selection process ends and the verticies are visible. AutoCAD is locked up until the selection process ends. Is there another way to cancel or escape while AutoCAD is processing a selection such as this?
