How do I customize what commands appear, with an entity selected, using the right mouse button? I know how to do it in previous versions of MsCAD, but everything I've tried in 2018 doesn't work. Commands that I want to add (and never should've been removed from the list when right clicking) - Match Properties, Draw Order Front and Draw Order Back. The only Draw Order commands that appear are Above and Under.
