Hi all

 

i was just drawing a line at 45 degrees using the following command

 

Command: l
LINE Specify first point:
Specify next point or [Undo]: @2000<45

Specify next point or [Undo]: *Cancel*

Command: *Cancel*

 

Then i get this in the command bar

 

Command: @f
Unknown command "@F".  Press F1 for help.

 

It doesnt matter what i type or do i cant get out of this command.

 

What do i do???

 

Please refer to the attached file.

 

 

Cheers

Jthorgo

How are you cancelling the command in progress?

 

If you type .LINE (note the period) instead of L and repeated the same sequence, do you still get the issue?

After i have drawn my line at 45 degrees i have a happit of hitting the esc key, therefore i get the "cancelled" in the command bar

 

and to fix the prblem i just restarted autocad and probelm is solved. But i m unsure how i even get to this command . 

 

i have always drawn my lines at 45 degrees using the

 

Command: l
LINE Specify first point:
Specify next point or [Undo]: @2000<45

 

and never a problem.

How about the second half of my reply? you need to make sure L is not something else now.

 

Does ESC tapping anywhere else repeat the issue?
