Using AutoCAD commands with progeCAD

Because progeCAD supports hundreds of AutoCAD commands, you use the commands you already know. For example, to draw a circle, use the circle command. To copy a circle, use the copy command.

When you press Enter or the spacebar, you activate the command--just like in AutoCAD. progeCAD accepts the special characters used by AutoCAD, such as point filters (for example, .xy), relative coordinates (the @ symbol), and the apostrophe (the ` prefix) for transparent commands. progeCAD function keys are also similar to those used in AutoCAD.

Because you do not need to learn a new set of commands, you are immediately productive with progeCAD.
