    Posted: 12.Nov.2009 at 07:58
I want to know the use of creating the new Autocad Alias Editor.
After executing the AlliasEdit Cmd. , go to the File menu, and then the New.
It will create the Unnamed Autocad Alias Editor.
Even I imported a acad.pgp file in it. And added a new alias for one command. And saved that file with xyz.pgp.
Now I am trying that shortcut in autocad.,Error of "unknown command" appears.

Again on executing the AliasEdit command, AutoCad is reading the Acad.pgp not xyz.pgp
How autoCad will read xyz.pgp.
If it cant read xyz.pgp , then whats the use of creating a new .pgp file & import and export options in File Menu.
Please reply.

I believe AutoCAD will recognize only one pgp file, "acad.pgp".
i don't know why there would be an option for "new" in ALIASEDIT.
