AutoCAD Troubleshooting

One of the items on my wish list to develop for AutoCAD was a command logger.  See, there are times when you are trying to isolate a problem and you kind of know what you did, but you don’t.

 

Recently, in my new command perusal, I ran across an old commands that I had not noticed before.

The commands of interest are LOGFILEMODE, LOGFILEPATH, LOGFILEON, LOGFILEOFF. 

Through some more research, I discovered that these options can be set from the profile (and have been there for YEARS).

So, basically when you turn logging on, AutoCAD saves all of the command line input so you can review it if you have issues.

So, now my wish list has been modified from writing that functionality, to making it more visible – and using it more often.

For those of you laughing at my learning such an old feature….oh well.  We all start somewhere, right?! Smile
