Command line, and my customized middle mouse button menu.
is that with mbuttonpan set to 1 or 0.  when it's set to 0, I would like to know how to override the default osnap menu that appears, as you get the same menu with a shift-right-click
mbuttonpan = 0

And I load this in my mnl file, probable don't need it there, but it works so why stop it.
(menucmd "A1=custom2.AUX1")

And then the definition for ' AUX1 ' that is in my .mns file.
***AUX1
$M=$(if,$(eq,$(substr,$(getvar,cmdnames),1,5),GRIP_),$P0=ACAD.GRIPS $P0=*);
$P0=custom2.WILLEYSNAP $p0=*

Mainly on the keyboard but I find the quickest way to insert blocks is by custom pull-down menu.

I couldn't live without my Steel Sections menu.

(BTW if anybody wants a copy, drop me a line. Be aware - British Standard Steel sections only, i.e. UC,UB,RSA,RSC,PFC,RSJ)

Defintely keyboard entry....like to have my screen clear of interruptions....i do have my pipework blocks open in explorer and drag n drop into the drawing as i need....

FWIW - I have noticed that people who have recently learnt cad really dont know what the commands are behind the toolbars, and most tend to throw the toys outta the pram if/when they mess up their profile.....
Having learnt on R11 dos you had to know the commands as the old school screen menu took an eternity to find your command.....Is it mainly the 'old schoolers' use the keyboard entry....
I thought i seen the light at the end of the tunnel. But it was just someone with a torch bringing me more work.

I've been a cad monkey for more than 18 years, but I'm likely to be upset if my profile gets messed up too... I have things like my custom tool palettes, and custom toolbars set up just how I like them... and the properties, xrefs and layer palettes set up for quick access (for me). For some commands I wouldnt dream of doing anything but keyboard entry, but for others, I like the convenience of my nicely arranged second monitor :)
Thanks for explaining the word "many" to me, it means a lot.

Nice of the OP to start a poll and then disappear.

Deja vu indeed

Good morning

By OP, I assume you mean the person who created the poll?  If so, I'm here, simply monitoring the results and comments.

Thanks for the concern :-)

A mix, command line, some drop down menus.

Most depend on what I'm doin' at the time.  8-)
