Q - question

What for is the ^R code in menu macros?

A - answer The special character (control sequence) "^R" constrols the versioning of AutoCAD commands. It can also enable a dialog version of a command launched from a macro (e.g. for MLEADER).

Menu macros (CUI) use by default the oldest versions of commands (to maintain compatibility) and typically a commandline versions of commands. If you need to use the newest version of a particular command (its options and prompts), it is neccessary to use ^R before the command name - e.g.: ^C^C^R_FILLET;.
