    Is there any way to customize R14 so that the right button accesses menu's when a command is active... mostly looking for the options to the pline command.

    thanks-

    You could add to **POP0 menu (shift + right-click).
    Like so:
    ***POP0
    **SNAP
    // Shift-right-click
    [&Object Snap Cursor Menu]
    ID_Arc [&Arc]A
    ID_Close [&Close]C
    ID_HalfWdth [&Halfwidth]H
    ID_Length [&Length]L
    ID_Undo [&Undo]U
    ID_Width [&Width]W
    [--]
    ID_Tracking [Trac&king]_tracking
    ID_From [&From]_from
    ID_MnPointFi [->Point Fi&lters]
    ID_PointFilx [.X].X
    ID_PointFily [.Y].Y
    ID_PointFilz [.Z].Z
    [--]
    ID_PointFixy [.XY].XY
    ID_PointFixz [.XZ].XZ
    ID_PointFiyz [<-.YZ].YZ
    [--]
    ID_OsnapEndp [&Endpoint]_endp
    ID_OsnapMidp [&Midpoint]_mid
    ID_OsnapInte [&Intersection]_int
    ID_OsnapAppa [&Apparent Intersect]_appint
    [--]
    ID_OsnapCent [&Center]_cen
    ID_OsnapQuad [&Quadrant]_qua
    ID_OsnapTang [&Tangent]_tan
    [--]
    ID_OsnapPerp [&Perpendicular]_per
    ID_OsnapNode [No&de]_nod
    ID_OsnapInse [In&sert]_ins
    ID_OsnapNear [Nea&rest]_nea
    ID_OsnapNone [&None]_non
    [--]
    ID_Osnap [&Osnap Settings...]'_osnap

    thanks Bob-

    I checked my mnu file and it was the same as you showed (except:
    ID_Arc [&Arc]A
    ID_Close [&Close]C
    ID_HalfWdth [&Halfwidth]H
    ID_Length [&Length]L
    ID_Undo [&Undo]U
    ID_Width [&Width]W
    [--])
    but when I added this info nothing happened!
    Perhaps I need to edit under POP7:Draw?
    please advise!

    thanks again-

  4. R14 Does not support context sensitive menus - That feature did not come out
    until the R2000 version of ACAD. *POP0 is not context sensitive, but always
    available when using a mouse button combination (Like Shift+Rclick)

    Adam,
    Edit the .mnu file, then do a menuunload / replace all / and select the .mnu file. Load it to 'recompile' the menu. (R14).
    The 'new' stuff should show up when right-clicking.

    GREAT!
    Got it working.... is there a way to access the secondary menu (second point....) or is this asking too much?

    thanks-

    I'm not sure what you want here, but it seems to me, that just picking the (second point..) would be just (1) click (at that point), and Shift+RtClick + (getpoint) would just be more clicking ?
    How do you want to make it work ?

    I would like to begin the pline command, right (or shift+rightclick) to access the arc, halfwidth (this I have accomplished) now once in, say the arc option, I would like to either right click or shift+rightclick to access the secondary options that pertain to the arc (ie. angle/ center/ halfwidth/ second point...etc)

    does this help clarify?
    thanks again-
    adam
