A lot of times it is better to use the OOPS command to "undelete", instead of UNDO (or U or Ctl+Z). For example, when a lot of entities are one over the another, and you want to stretch/rotate...a few.
a. Delete all the "extra stuff"
b. Select the stuff you want; Stretch/rotate - or whatever.
c. Type OOPS
The objects deleted reappear. Oops, you did it;)
Be careful, though: this only works with the LAST entity deleted. So please DONT delete and again delete.
Note 1: This is more useful for Zwcad, where you can't cycle through the overlapping objects.
Note 2: Not my tip - I just read it somehwere - cant remember where. I thought sit would be useful for some.

Rotating group of blocks around (individual) origin.
Say, for example, you want to rotate a group of chairs, so that all are rotatED 45 degrees, instead of 0 degrees. Do this:
Select all the blocks.
Press CTL+1 (Control and 1, simultaneously) to bring up the "PROPERTIES TOOLBAR"
In the "Geometry" submenu of the "Properties Bar" , click on the "0" next to ROTATION.
Change it to "45"
That's it. Simple, wasn't it.

This is from the Progesoft forum (; I thought it should be of interest to some:
If you want hidden lines that are much smaller you can type in at the command prompt linetype
Next type C
for create. You could name the line type hidden3 for example when
prompted. When prompted for a decription if you want, to get a line
that is half as large as the hidden2 that comes with the program type
at the prompt 1.5,-.75.
The 1.5 will give you the length of the dash and the negative -.75 will
give you the lenght of the space. There are many options for creating
linetypes in Proge and it is definitely worth spending sometime with
this tool so you can make custom line types. Look at the line type
"isolamento". That is a neat linetype of insulation that will be very
useful for architectual drawings.
