AutoCAD Technician Michael Klinck provides us with a little macro that keeps his hands on the mouse so he can keep working.
"If pressing the Esc button is intended to clear grips, which is what I typically use it for, what I have is a button which I click to get back to the Command line:
It saves me from having to press anything on the keyboard, and keeps me utilizing the mouse. The button is located on my own custom toolbar, with many others."
Notes from Cadalyst Tip Patrol: Custom commands are meant to save time. This one can do so by keeping you focused on the mouse. Your hands don't leave the mouse to reach for the keyboard; just flick your wrist and click. Keep working, don't stop! Your boss will be pleased.
