more often than not i need to remove objects when i'm stretching. how would i modify the button to allow me to remove after i select the objects to stretch

$M=$(if,$(eq,$(substr,$(getvar,cmdnames),1,4),GRIP),_stretch,^C^C_stretch)

ehmn... why would you want to remove an object after stretching it ~ why not just delete it in the first place ? or do you mean another object ?

ok i'm stretching a group of objects but some i want to stay where they are. i just want it to start the remove option after i select my objects instead of typing r all the time. does that clerify things?

Ok, here is a simple remove option for you....

In ANY command that you want to remove objects from the selection set, simply hold down the SHIFT key then select the object to remove. One note of caution. In the stretch command IF you remove an object by crossign or selection, then ALL objects will be removed fromthe stretch, although many will still show as part of the selection set. I have heard that this has been addressed in some releases of AutoCAD but I have experienced it in 2000 & 2002

Express tools mstretch works real well for this. You can actually use the R to remove the objects. You can also stretch multiple selections at once.
