Subject: Using prompt boxes

CADdirect commands often provide several options. These options appear in the sta­tus bar or command bar and can also optionally appear in a prompt box (called a con­text menu in AutoCAD) initially displayed in the upper right corner of the screen. You can move the prompt box by dragging it; future prompt boxes will appear where you last placed it. The options appear as menu selections. Choose the appropriate option by selecting it in the prompt box. To close a prompt box, click the Close box.   

The prompt box is hidden by default. To turn on the display of prompt boxes, choose Tools > Options, click the Display tab, and then click the Display Prompt Boxes check box.
