Q - question

What is the flag (0-15) in the command alias editor?

A - answer The ALIASEDIT command in AutoCAD allows to define new shortcuts (aliases) to internal commands and define (create) new shell commands. For the shell (OS) commands you have to specify a "Flag" (a number from 0 to 15).

This flag is a bit combination of:

  • Bit 1: if set, AutoCAD does not wait for the application to finish
  • Bit 2: if set, the application is run minimized
  • Bit 4: if set, the application is run as hidden
  • Bit 8: if set, the argument string has to be quoted

E.g. 11 means: run minimized, do not wait to complete, parameters are quoted.
