Some of these commands are present in the AutoCAD command table, but are disabled, and therefore are not recognized as commands. They are included for the sake of completeness.
|*SCROLL||R12||Resets the “pan” scroll bars.|
|.ACADSTATUS||pre R12||Creates ACAD.SLG in same directory as ACAD.EXE. The file contains an internal status log. [You must precede this command with an extra period to use it at the command line.]|
|.ACLTSTATUS||R13||Same as ACADSTATUS, except for AutoCAD LT. [You must precede this command with an extra period to use it at the command line.]|
|-OLDMTEXT||R14||Runs the R13 -MTEXT command.|
|AXIS||pre R12||It just tells you it’s a discontinued command (remember AXISMODE?)|
|CONTENT||R14||Does nothing. Could it be a prelude for the ‘Content Explorer’?|
|CONVERTPOLY||R14||Convert both ways between old style polylines and the new lightweight polylines. This is a very useful one!|
|DLGCOLOR*||R13||Controls dialog colors in R13/DOS, does nothing in other versions.
*This command is documented in R13, but not in R14.
|DUMPMEMALLOC||R13||Provides internal memory information.|
|DVBIN||R14||Does nothing. Probably intended for importing VBA macro.|
|DVBOUT||R14||Does nothing. Probably intended for exporting VBA macro.|
|ENDSV||R12||An interesting variant of END, with a warning about being unable to save vector files(?).|
|FILEOPEN||R12||A command-line only variant of OPEN. In R13, this command is issued when selecting a file from the MRU file list in the ‘File’ menu.|
|KABOOM!||R13||Does nothing. Looks fun, though!|
|KRISTI||R13||Creates cat_acad.h and cat_acad.rc in the ACAD.EXE directory. These files contain resource definitions for all loaded toolbar buttons. They don’t look very useful to me, but I’ll bet Kristi needed them.|
|OFFLINE||R13||Warns that it is “not converted to AcDb yet”, then does nothing.|
|OLDMTEXT||R14||Runs the R13 MTEXT command.|
|OLDMTPROP||R14||Runs the R13 MTPROP command.|
|PAINTER||R13||Does nothing in R13, runs _MATCHPROP in R14.|
|PRPLOT||pre R12||Tells you that it’s a discontinued command (remember “printer plots”?)|
