Draft Sight 2D - missing command prompt


Recommended Posts

Hi, I use the above. I've opened it today and the Command Prompt is missing..?? ;) Not the command box, I can open and close that to my heart's content, but the actual prompt itself. Any ideas?? Thanks :)

Do you have the Properties window open? If so right click on the grey area near where it says "Properties". You should get a box where you can check on Command Window.

Since this is not an Autocad question, I have moved this thread to the Design Software section: http://www.cadtutor.net/forum/forumdisplay.php?22-Design-Software

 

I wonder if it's time to create a new section for other CAD software such as Bricscad and Draftsight? Or maybe create dedicated forums for each program? Just a thought.

I opened up DraftSight, and the command prompt is at the bottom of the Command window, and is shown by the colon. My version does not have the word 'Prompt'.

jim007: Do NOT reinstall.

 

Here you go. Options > System Options > Display > Command window text > Command line text. Type in the word Prompt (no colon), click on Apply then OK. Return to drawing to verify it worked.

Think I'll do a reinstall - might have got 'buggy'. Thanks Sean

 

Sorry I wasn't much help Jim. I was sort of stabbing in the dark. I have latest version installed but could not replicate your issue. I just don't use it much. I hope you get it sorted. :)

Sorry, but I find that difficult to believe.

 

The default display is just a plain colon without the word Prompt.

Why? Do you have the money to rent it on a monthly or yearly basis?

 

From the Draftsight Help file....

BTW...I have DS on my computer as it is what we have our engineering interns use. I did test the above procedure, three times, and it does work.
