AutoCAD Commands
This page is dedicated to the commands that are found in AutoCAD and are available with Express Tools. The chart indicates which commands are available in which release, which commands changed and in which release (on going), and which commands are new in the latest release. The PDF file is generated only a couple of times a year, while the chart is updated as new information is discovered.

Many thanks to Shaan Hurley at Autodesk for being the original source for this listing. Since both Shaan and I were working on a similar type of document, we decided to combine efforts into one project and the results of that effort are below.

 - Command is available  - Command is new
 - Command was changed  - Command not available
 ( OPEN )  - Replacement command for a legacy command. Usually the legacy command is still available via a Command Alias in most cases.    
* Note: Command aliases shown for some of the commands are based on the latest release.
