Have You Tried: Command Preview in AutoCAD


By Lee Ambrosius

For this next installment of our Have You Tried series, we have another great time-saver that we are excited to share with you: command preview. Command preview in AutoCAD works on several commands and provides real-time feedback.

A preview of the command’s result is displayed, allowing you to make changes or correct errors before completing the command.
