Command line has some enhancements in AutoCAD 2014. Now it has AutoCorrect, AutoComplete and Synonym suggestions. You can read about this command line enhancements here.
Apparently this cause problem if you primarily use command line, and type too fast. AutoCAD might suggest and change it to other command.
If you have this problem, you can fix it by doing these:
Change INPUTSEARCHDELAY variable
You can customize command line behavior by clicking customize button at the left side of command line. Click input search option.
Change the suggestion list delay time to 1000 or higher. Usually 1000 would work, but if it doesn’t change it to higher value.
You can also change this setting by typing INPUTSEARCHDELAY at command line then press enter.
Disable input search options
This capability might be useful, so you might want to change the delay first. However, after some time you don’t think you want to use it anyway, you can turn it off.
From the same input search options dialog box, you can turn off:
- Enable AutoComplete
- Enable AutoCorrect
- Search content at command line
What would you do?
I suggest you to increase the delay first. I personally like AutoComplete, so I leave it on. It helps me to find variables and command that I don’t know or don’t remember.
Attempting to change AutoCAD back to old version is very popular. However, I suggest you not to disable new features entirely. Try for a couple of days/weeks. You may find it useful.
If you still hate it, then you can turn it off.
