    Default Shorthand commands changed

    Hello,
    All of the sudden the shorthand commands changed. Li is now line instead of list. X is xref instead of explode. This is on a desktop and is AutoCAD LT 2018.
    thanks,

    thanks,
    Sounds like a custom PGP file has been loaded into your session. (I assume LT uses PGP files).
    The PGP file is where your alias' are for AutoCAD, and many people customize them for their use.

    No one did that on purpose or knows how to do that, so not sure how it happened~! How do I get back the standard one? Thanks!

    Easiest way would be to copy the acad.pgp file from another PC that has the correct shortcuts. The one in my Civil 3D 2018 is dated 9/15/2014, they're not version specific and are rarely modified.

    FYI: For AutoCAD LT, the file is named acadlt.pgp

    Thank you for your information. I copied these files and then they showed that they were already in there. I looked again, and basically, only 9 gradient circle hatches show up and one user hatch. I compared the hatch command and bhatch command on the laptop where it works and all the hatches appear and on the desktop where somehow only these 10 appear. I am using the same command and I copied the .pgp file from the laptop where they are correct and it still doesn't work. hmm?

    - - - Updated - - -

    Sorry that was for the hatch post, but, I did copy that file as well over and didn't change things either. ugh.

    @sr_recycle - did you read the link I posted?
    Did you try the GUI method of viewing/editing the PGP file?
    AutoCAD (and AutoCAD LT) will read/load the first .PGP file it finds, based on the current path, and the support file search path.
    Maybe yours is reading a different PGP file, than the one you are viewing/editing.
