Tipster Hayden Clarke sends us an AutoCAD tip that will execute your commands multiple times.
"It can be quite frustrating when you have to return to the ribbon each time to execute the same 'one-off' command in AutoCAD. For example, when you execute the Rectang command to draw a rectangle, you can only draw one before having to re-enter the command or select the button from the ribbon again. That's why there is a little-known goodie called Multiple. If the command Multiple is entered, then it will ask for the command you wish to repeat; enter the command (such as Rectang, Copy, Move — anything, really) and accept. Now you can perform multiple iterations of the action, as opposed to the one-off command. This command is great for multiple changes, and saves you from referring to the keyboard or menu after running each repeated command."
Notes from Cadalyst Tip Patrol: We don't typically do things just one time — that's why we use CAD. In AutoCAD, many commands and tools naturally continue until you cancel them, but that's not true for every command. The Multiple option is very easy to use. Type Multiple on the Command line, then enter your command. If you want to get really fancy, customize your commands in the ribbon or toolbars by adding the Multiple input.
