For AutoCAD Versions 2000 and higher.
ALIAS - This program allows you to assign a letter or combination of letters to a command while you are in your drawing. The commands are available to you immediately. It will also add the new commands to the AutoCAD StartUp Suite so they will be there every time you start a new drawing.
You are not limited to the commands listed in the "Commands" list box. You can add whatever is available. When you type in the "New Alias" box, the "New" button will become active and the label "Currently Assigned to:" will change to "Assign to:". You can either choose from the commands listed in the "Commands" list box or you can type in anything you want to try.
