Task Dialogue/Text Commands in OpenRoads

I am looking to set up OpenRoads so I can do basic drafting the same as I do in V8i. I found this article which allows me to use the same task window for drawing.


However, it does not allow me to use typed commands (ie, Q1 = smart line). Is there a way to do this in OpenRoads to allow the same efficiency for basic drafting?
