Bare minimum keyboard entries - AutoCAD Tip

From Draftsperson.net

(1 Jan 2003) Pay attention to the AutoCAD prompt. There are clues in every prompt that can save time. For example, look at the QDIM command:

[Continuous/Staggered/Baseline/Ordinate/Radius/Diameter/datumPoint/Edit]
<Continuous>:

Note the capitalization. These capital letters are the bare minimum to type in order for it to work. The entire word datumPoint does not need to be typed because the single letter "P" will do the job. Also note, it is not always the first letter of the word, that is the shortcut, and what is entered can be either upper or lower case.
