What the &%#! happened to the Array command? And when did this come about,... and why wasn't I consulted? For 20 years I used DDARRAY in Acad... went to use it today for the first time in, well, a long time.... and it ain't there! Now all of your options are typed at the keyboard with multiple key shortcuts, and the result is grouped so you have to explode it to get rid of one or more items.
Wow... just goes to show us old folks, don't turn your backs for too long.
Solved! Go to Solution.

If you turn off Associative when creating - you don't have to explode. The new command is far more powerful than the old array.
Upgrade your skills set, the new Array has power now: explore the many good quality videos on YouTube for demonstrations, far easier than reading through a manual I think, to show you how.
For the old command, type ARRAYCLASSIC at the command line and go retro
Does anybody else think its odd that an OP has a signature line that reads:
'Please click "Accept as Solution" if this response answers your question'
I don't see that he has accepted any of the good responses as a solution either.
If you all will give me a little time to respond before lambasting me,....
I appreciate ALL of the input. I use 2D autocad about .5% of my time on the job.
My comment was meant to be slightly humerous, relating to how out of touch one can be when not using the product that often. I DO see the power of the new tool, and if I ever have the need to do an array again in the future, I will explore that.
JD, thanks... your answers are always appreciated.
I wasn't aware that I was "lambasting" you. I was primarily noting that putting the "Accept solution" notation in a signature line reads wrong in an original post on a topic. Too bad there is no automatic forum feature to automate that part of a signature in a followup post.
I should probably turn that into a macro, this was something that a bunch of us in the Inventor forum started using a few years ago, to encourage posters to use the accept button. As a macro I could turn it on and off if needed.
It's as automatic as a signature, if you know how to set it up. It was introduced by autodesk as part of this rating system that lets people know if you are a Newb or third Dan or a Mage or whatever. They actually encourage people to add that automatic tag line, so as to encourage others to mark solutions as accepted, and hopefully whose solution was accepted.
Therefore, when someone with the tag line asks a question themselves, the tag line still shows up...
