Q - question

How to add a new command to AutoCAD shortcut menus?

A - answer If you want to add a new item (command) to the context menu (shortcut menu) displayed when you right-click with your mouse into the DWG drawing, use the CUI Editor, the command CUI.

E.g. if you need to add the command "Paste to original coordinates", unfold the tree ACAD > Shortcut Menus > Default Menu in the CUI Editor, in the bottom pane search (e.g. by enetering "paste") for the command "Paste to original coordinates" and drag it with your mouse to the requested position in the opened tree "Default Menu".

Exit the CUI Editor using OK.
