Yes, Add-ins! now I don't do it.
I did it with earlyer version I can't remember if it was Solidworks 98, or 2003.
I maybe have it still in some older drives.

It was realy just in the begining. I was used to AutoCAD 10, I started from the AutoCAD 9 in DOS plattform.
Good time!! we used the commard promt.
Today I use AutoCAD 12 Mechanical

In SW2012 they implemented a search for commands, so if you don't remember where a button is you can quickly search it and a list of commands with that keyword will pop up, then you can simply click the one you desire... Something they've been lacking for years!

Yes it is, same as me, migrated from Autocad to solidworks.
I tested the commandline in SW, allmost same as Autocad but solidworks was sooo slow when that feature was on.

You can choose 'solidworks 2d emulator' from addin window
with solidworks 2d emulator command prompt : you can type and use commands such as "LINE" "CHAMFER" and others.
