Table 11-1 lists AutoCAD's most-frequently-used editing commands. It shows the tool icons found on the Ribbon, the classic toolbar, and the classic menu, and it gives the official command name with corresponding alias (where one exists) for the typists in the room. Ribbon buttons are on the Home tab's Modify panel in the Drafting & Annotation workspace. In the AutoCAD Classic workspace, look for these commands on the Modify or Modify II toolbar and Modify menu.

image The ARRAY command has undergone a massive revision in AutoCAD 2012 — so much so that it hardly qualifies as a Modify command anymore. I cover the new associative array feature in Chapter 18. However, I think there's still a need for simple arrays — that is, copies of objects in regular patterns — so I explain how to do those (and it's just a little more difficult than it used to be) in this chapter. The icons and input locations for the four Array commands shown Table 11-1 run the new associative array commands which I cover in Chapter 18; I include them here because they're still grouped with the other Modify commands.
