Getting started

Working in progeCAD

You can work with the progeCAD window and its elements in a variety of ways. For example, you can display and rearrange the toolbars, display the command bar, and enable the status bar. The toolbars and command bar can also be floated anywhere on the screen or docked to the edges of the main progeCAD window.



  1. You can customize the menu bar at the top of the window.
  2. You can customize the toolbars, changing the appearance and arrangement of tools and adding your own commands and macros.
  3. Your drawings are displayed in the drawing window.
  4. The user coordinate system (UCS) icon indicates the orientation of the drawing in three-dimensional space.
  5. Click a tab to switch between the drawing of your model and a printed layout.
  1. You can type commands in the command bar. To reposition the command bar, drag it to another location on your screen.
  2. The status bar displays information such as the name or purpose of a tool, the current cursor coordinates, layer name, and mode settings.
  3. You can move and dock the toolbars to any location on your screen.
