Command Alias's not working.

I have changed the pgp file as well as using the command alias editor under express tools, they both have my command alias but when I go to use it I get a different command. Anybody know what's up. I changed DDEDIT from ED to DD, but when I type DD within AutoCad it executes another command. I would love to tell you what command it is, but it does not list it. What is does say is "Command: DD Select line or [Points]:". I have looked through both the .pgp file and the command alias editor and there is no other command that uses the alias DD. Is there another set of commands that I am not aware of?

Do a search on your computer for acad.pgp - perhaps you're referencing the wrong one...

Hi, "dd" is now a hardcoded command in LDT. You cannot change it unless you first undefine it. That would be like creating an alias of "circle" to copy a line, it just won't let you do it. I ended up changing my "dd" alias to "ddd". Hey programmer dudes! Don't use such short names for commands! We want to be able to change them to something else!
