Command line next to cursor?

I had a problem this morning where for some reason I needed to do a drawing recovery on a map - which is fine, all seems well.


The problem is that now when I type a command, it doesn't appear next to the cursor anymore. It's not really a NEED having it there, but I've gotten to like that in the newer CAD versions, and now I can't find the setting that makes it come back. Sure I CAN type everything and have it show just at the bottom of the screen, but I'd rather have my dynamic field back.


Anyone know how I can restore it?

you can switch the dynamic mode by:

  • change the sysvar DYNMODE to 3 (>>>details<<<)
  • press <F12>
  • click onto this button in the statusline on the bottom of the AutoCAD application window:

Thank you very much. I had a feeling it was one of those simple solutions I just couldn't locate...
