Subject: Displaying commands on a shortcut menu

CADdirect_window">Shortcut menus provide quick access to specific commands. A shortcut menu dis­plays when you right-click an entity, toolbar, status bar, the Model tab name, or a Layout tab name. The selections presented in the shortcut menu depend on what you right-clicked.      

When you right-click the drawing, you can choose from a wide range of commands, including recently used commands. When you right-click a toolbar, the program dis­plays a shortcut menu that lets you toggle the command bar, status bar, and various toolbars on and off. If you select one or more entities and then right-click, the pro­gram displays a shortcut menu from which you can choose a command to modify the selected entities. To display a shortcut menu from which you can choose an entity snap, press and hold down the Shift key, and then right-click anywhere within the drawing window.
