Command Dialog Similar to Autocad

    Has there been any thought to adding a dialog/command line option to access commands similar to AutoCAD so a user can switch to a "transparent" command while in another operation.


    It would be convenient while selecting objects to be able to switch selection modes, eg. switch from crossing window to by single crossing line, or by diameter from a clicked screen point.  Possibly having the option to switch selection modes by a right click menu or command line dialog.


    Also it would be convenient to be able to type in what snap mode you would prefer to use instead of having to turn snap modes on and off or increasing/decreasing snap mode priority.


    I understand there are command shortcuts but am unsure if there is a way to switch selection mode when another command is in use.

    Hit F12, command line commands can be entered there.


    The previous commands as far as I've encountered stay open and are accessable via the grey downward pointing arrow in the top left of the function window.


    Alternatively you can also pin the command, which creates a tab system down the side of the functions window for fast access.
