AutoCAD Aliases for Rhino

Question

AutoCAD has several useful command aliases. For example, if you enter “L” at the AutoCAD command prompt, the Line command will run. Can these aliases be build into Rhino's standard set of aliases?

Answer

Rather than build AutoCAD aliases into Rhino, we have provided a standard set of AutoCAD aliases that you can import into Rhino.
