In the event your Command: prompt window has been accidentally closed, follow the steps below to re-display it:

  1. At the bottom of your AutoCAD/Carlson screen, enable the DYN (Dynamic Input) button as shown below:

    Dynamic Input (F12)

    Alternatively, use the F12 function key to toggle Dynamic Input.
  2. When Dynamic Input is enabled, type commandline and press Enter. This should bring your Command: line back.

You can stretch the Command: line to show more lines if needed by placing your mouse between the drawing window and the Command: line window until you see the re-size arrows appear. Drag/re-size the Command: to a position and size of your choosing.
