And after all these ways to Quit, I'll ask the question:
"How did a credit card ballon the number of ways to quit?" Unless this is a spin ogg of revolving credit.

On AutoCAD 13, the undo button, also known as "powerexit" ;)


Go to your nearest progeCAD reseller and purchase a copy of progeCAD 2008 Professional, save around $4500.00, take a vacation until your AutoCAD subscription runs out! :-)

There used to be an END command too. That command saved the drawing (there was only one back then) and then closed AutoCAD. It made life interesting for people who issued the END osnap override at the wrong time. These days the command is still there but it just informs the user the command is discontinued.

More obscure still is the old ENDSV command that saved the drawing and also some kind of vector file before closing AutoCAD. I never knew anybody who had any use for such a file, but I assume it must have been used for something.
