Command Alias
« on: November 20, 2018, 08:55:33 AM »
I have noticed several of the standard installed command alias do not function as i remember they did in the past.

For example VP is no longer launching the onscreen Viewpoint Preset menu. 

It is giving me the following option on the command line
*** Switching to the WCS ***
Specify a view point or [Rotate] <display compass and tripod>:

looking at support paths, it appears as though the correct path is mapped to the correct acad.pgp file.

VPOINT gives me the onscreen menu
.pgp file says
VP,        *VPOINT
-VP,       *-VPOINT

but VP or -VP give me command line

Tested in AutoCAD 2019 here.
Same PGP file contents.
VP command at the command line, opens the dialog.

Perhaps you have a lisp function defining C:VP ?
