1-”delete all the history of the command lines without terminating QCad” ; and

Make sure the command line prompt has the focus.
Press Ctrl-L (Windows, Linux) or Command-L (macOS)

2-”export attributes to the CSV file as exported to the Blocks List”

Note that every block can have a different number and different types of attributes. This format does not fit into the table format of CSV. If you had something different in mind, please elaborate.

A good option would be to export the list of attributes as it is listed on the command line, as it already exists in the miscellaneous menu, but for an external file in * .txt format because, if we assign ";" (Semicolon) to the attributes that we want to manipulate will be at the discretion of each user to structure the attributes as fields of a record in a database, in the way that suits them. I could not compile a command like this because I do not understand anything from java script, sorry.

I already use this criterion in a very useful way, however I have to list the blocks by the existing command and then select the entire command line and copy them and then paste them into a worksheet then link this worksheet to a database , The idea above, if implemented, would greatly facilitate this process. Thank you.
