repeat command line text

My second problem today, one of these days I guess.


Does anyone know how to change the feature that lets you repeat the text that was typed into your command line. In previous jobs I have been able to use the up and down arrows on the keyboard to scroll through text or commands that I have typed in (i.e the position and angle of a line, @254<35). On this PC that I am using when i try to get a repeat command text I only get a set of co-ordinates or no text at all.

Is there a parameter that has to be set to obtain the repeat text?

Look up INPUTHISTORYMODE in the help files. Basically, it has to be an even number to have the old behavior, but be aware that using an even number also disables the ability to use the "down arrow" to access the menu of command options.
