repeating FILLET command when using keyboard

I want to make it so that whenever I type F for FILLET the MULTIPLE option is selected so I don't have to type F then M.  Is there a way to make it so that when I type F it always gives me the multiple option without my having to type F then M?  How would I do that?

Short answer:

 

Add this to your acaddoc.lsp:

 

(defun c:fm()(command "_.fillet" "u")(princ))

 

If you don't have an acaddoc.lsp, you will need to create one with notepad and put it in a folder that is marked with the trustedpaths in your support files of the profile.

I found the acaddoc.lsp file but am hesitant to alter it because I don't know what I'm doing!
Would I just copy and paste (defun c:fm()(command "_.fillet" "u")(princ)) at the bottom of the file?

Found acaddoc.lsp but it has to be the right one to paste to.

 

At the command line, type in (findfile "acaddoc.lsp")

It will return the right acaddoc.lsp to paste to.

Yes, just paste it in.  And in AutoCAD be sure to test to see that you have the correct acaddoc.lsp per Patchy.

 

There are other ways to include this lisp but using acaddoc.lsp is probably the simplest method.

 

You can also read about the startup suite.

Start MULTIPLE command.
Now start FILLET command.
Enjoy.

You can use MULTIPLE command with any other command in AutoCAD.

At the command line, type in (findfile "acaddoc.lsp")

did not work; it returned NIL. I'm using AutoCAD 2014.
