Q - question

How to find straight time amount spent on a drawing?

A - answer You can use the EDITTIME command from Express Tools (you can switch it on and off, plus specify timeouts - coffee, cigarette, take5 - to get 'net' time).

For plain timekeeping (time the drawing is opened for editing) you can use the standard TIME command.
