Command Line Problem

Q. Every time I open AutoCad Iím down to one line of text in the command line. My profile specifies 4 lines. When I open Options/display 4 lines is specified. I can change the display to 4 lines, or whatever, by stretching it with the mouse, but when I close AutoCad and open up again itís back to one stingy line.

A. If you use "Acad.lsp" or "Acaddoc.lsp" or similar at startup you could put the following piece of code in one of these files; it will ensure that you get the number of command lines you want.

(setenv "CmdVisLines" "2")
;Sets the number of lines in the AutoCAD command line window


"CmdVisLines" must be written as is ie Upper & Lower case
"2" number of command lines you require ie 1, 2, 3.... etc
