In Chapter 10, you can see that AutoCAD offers several methods of modifying drawing objects. You can see how to select those objects in the first place so that you can then edit them. Now it’s time to roll up your sleeves and get dirty. In this chapter, I introduce the primary edit commands in AutoCAD.
The following sections cover the most important AutoCAD editing commands, using command-first editing mode.
Table 11-1 lists AutoCAD’s most frequently used editing commands.

Ribbon buttons are found on the Home tab’s Modify panel in the Drafting & Annotation workspace.
