Marking Menu

The marking menu replaces the right-click context menu for AutoCAD Electrical objects. You can perform a selection from the marking menu in either menu mode or marking mode.

Right-click in the graphics window. Menu items surround the cursor. To dismiss the marking menu, click once again in the center of the menu display. Do not press the Esc key, this can cancel a command in progress.

Draw a mark. To enter this mode, press and hold the right mouse button, and immediately move the cursor in the direction of the desired menu item. A trail follows the cursor. Release the mouse button to select and execute the command that corresponds to the direction of movement of the cursor.

The marking menus are built dynamically based on the context menus defined in the .cui file. Customize the marking menu by modifying the context menus using the Customize User Interface (cui) editor.
