Q - question

Display object properties when hovering mouse cursor (rollover).

A - answer When you rollover your mouse on a drawing object, AutoCAD displays main properties of that object. This behavior is controlled by the variable ROLLOVERTIPS = 1.

If the information displayed by default is not enough for you, you can customize it and add more simply by changing the CUI settings - in the section "Rollover Tooltips".
