... This, seemingly one of the many differences between this CAD production guy & amateur developer, and professional developers like yourself, and Owen... I appreciate your patience, while I struggle to wrap my head around this, guys.

Select first object or [uNdo/Polyline/Radius/Trim/mUltiple]: _n

uNdo vs. Undo

I use the entire option "_undo" and not an abbreviation to avoid this kind of problems in my italian/english programs.

Exactly! In the same idiom as
in this case, if compatibility with non-English versions of AutoCAD is achieved by simply inserting an underscore prefix, I see no reason to omit it.
I see no reason to omit the underscore, neither do I see a reason to only send the capitalized letter of the option.

Sure it's less typing, but for a few less keystrokes you open yourself for issues later on when your code is running on another language ACad or even just a later / earlier version.
Common sense - the curse in disguise. Because if you have it, you have to live with those that don't.

I've enjoyed watching you and other "amateurs" develop and grow. Just a few years ago, I was you. One of these days, you'll be the one whipping the young guys into shape.  :police:

That is incredibly kind, and encouraging, of you to say, Owen... If only I could find an employer that felt the same.

I do hope that you can appreciate that I was genuinely seeking a greater understanding here, and not (at least not intentionally) being argumentative... I'd like to believe that what little I know, I know well... But more importantly (to me), I wouldn't be where I am today, without the kindness of others to point, even if that meant offering me a swift kick, in the right direction.

Particularly as one of the 'young guys', I'd like to offer you a cheers, for the help you generously give this community (I'd offer you a dram in person, but for now a quick pic from this weekend will have to do :-))... Cheers:

BB.... Just to give you a real life example -- Owen gave me a lot of help and also samples and review it those for me, when I started into the C++/MFC/and ObjectARX, some years ago, now I work doing software, for one of the big/best companies in the US.

So keep there and learn every day. :)


Have fun!
Luis.-

Or you could write a bunch of complicated codey stuff...  :-D

Curious... Just tried BURST Command in 2014 and MLeader is not a valid selection.
