    Default I love being frustrated - properties dialog/palette

    I must have hit a button but I don't know which one.

    Chprop usually brings up a properties dialog with a selection capability. when I use chprop all it is giving me is the old fashion command line change capability.

    How do I get that chprop dialog to show up? I hate having to change a linetype by using lt on the command bar.

    I went through the help search and it wasn't much help. What variable did I change and
    how can I get back to original settings.

    I use Pr to do that, I dont recall chprop ever having a dialog box. I think that the command is just maintained for legacy support, and has more recently been replaced with the properties palette.

    Try Ctrl+1 or from Tools dropdown menu => Palettes => Properties
