The first versions of AutoCAD enabled an architect to operate all of the most frequently used commands through the use of mouse and side menu. The AutoCAD 2.6 side menu offered 16 main items and 157 commands of the submenu. Total mastery of approx. 200 commands (including a dozen or so of instructions excluded from the menu and some of system variables) was equal to a very good proficiency in the program.
