Customer Question

With AutuCad there is a command line at the bottom where you can type "distance" to get exact length to 5 or 6 decimal places. I can't find it with Draft Sight.
Is "distance" available somewhere?

Hi Stan. My name is***** would be my pleasure to help you with this. It is quite inconvenient not to have the command line available in Draft Sight. Fortunately, there is an easy fix.

Bring up the floating command window by Right clicking on the upper toolbar area and choosing Command Menu Right click on the title bar to bring up the restore/move menu. Click on move & drag the window to the bottom left hand corner of the display. The command window should reappear between the graphic display & the status bar.

That should resolve the issue but please let me know if it does not, or if you need more help.
