Double click CUI menu

Trying to change the Hatch doubleclick command from quickproperties  to the familiar hatch edit dialog.


When I go to the cui, hatch edit doesn't even appear as a command. There a lots of commands that don't appear in the CUI command list.


I added it, but I cannot get it to stick when I drag it to HATCH in the doubleclick list


The the HATCH Advanced element box "ID_QUICKPROPERTIES" is greyed out so I cant retype it to "hatchedit"


It could be because I let autocad migrate from 2008 (pre ribbon) when I installed.


I'm stumped ...

No AutoCAD menu ever contained "every command". Still doesn't.

but HATCH EDIT, the name used in the Commands List for HATCHEDIT command, is there in R2012's CUI. Simply drag and drop it from the Commands List to the hatch listing under Double-Click Actions. It works great here.


After you APPLY and OK out of the CUI pop-up, use WSSAVE command to save your current workspace.


IMHO, it was unwise to let AutoCAD auto-migrate from R2008 for you.
