Prior to upgrading to 2012, I was able to do the following:
1) turn on computer
2) start an autocad drawing by double clicking on an existign drawing file
3) draw in autocad for a while
(at this point you should assume everything is normal and working fine with no problems)
4) I draw an X-line and repeat the x-line to several points without typing anything else
- one of the x-lines get's accidentally snapped to the wrong place
5) while still in the x-line command, I type "U" (undo) and the x-line to the wrong point is deleted
6) I continue snapping x-lines and contnue drawing without typing any new commands...
In the new 2012 version, I am unable to "UNDO" the accidental x-line (step 5) without exiting the x-line command
Is it possible to get the undo command to work again in the middle of snapping x-lines?
Solved! Go to Solution.
It doesn't look like it. Following your procedure in my version of AutoCAD LT it didn't work either. The U (undo) command does not appear to be a recognized option within the XLINE command.
I have 2011 installed on another computer... I'll have to look and see if it works for me there. But that's as far back as I'd be able to test.
Only have LT 2012 installed here.
Doesn't sound like normal behaviour from previous versions though.
Could this have been a Macro that has not been brought over perhaps?
No, I don't know anything about macros, but I have been using the XLINE command for many years and have gotten used to "undoing" my accidental snaps and moving on as a very convenient feature. Incidentally, the UNDO command to correct an unwanted line does work in the middle of many other drawing commands so this did not appear unusal to me.
