Today a problem arose. I like to have a menu under a right-click of my mouse (with other useful commands) but my colleague get use to use Enter on that button. How then to open a block in the Block Editor she asked?
There is a command BEDIT ( BE or what ever is specified in the acad.pgp file) or a toolbar to open blocks in-place (or you can double click the block). But there is no toolbar icon to open a block in the Block Editor accept a right-click menu.
However there is a command which is not even listed in the acad.pgp file.
“-BEDIT” opens selected block in the Block Editor. You can add that command to a acad.pgp command list with a shortcut e.g. “-BE“. It will work. Somehow AutoCAD 2013 is smarter and activates that command with a shortcut not even listed in the acad.pgp file.
Also in AutoCAD 2013 there is a predefined command with an icon in User Interface which can be easily added to any toolbar or tab.

Have a good weekend everyone 🙂
