Q - question

What prefixes are available for AutoCAD commands?

A - answer You can use prefix characters with most AutoCAD internal commands. Such prefixes are e.g.:
  • "'" transparency prefix (invokes a command during execution of another command - e.g. '_HELP)
  • "-" commandline prefix (invokes a non-dialog version of a command - e.g. _-LAYER)
  • "_" non-localized command prefix (original english command names in a localized version of AutoCAD - e.g. _LINE)
  • "." non-redefined command prefix (e.g. for commands undefined using _UNDEFINE, example: ._LINE or _.LINE)
  • "+" dialog tab prefix (for selecting a particular dialog tab - e.g. '._+DSETTINGS), or a special command mode (e.g. +PUBLISH)
To list all commands which can be prefixed with "+", type "+" on the commandline and press the TAB key repeatedly (since version 2006). Similary, to list all transparent commands, type "'" (apostrophe).
