Customizing progeCAD - Setting and changing options

Changing the options on the Crosshairs tab

In the Options dialog box, on the Crosshairs tab, you can control how the crosshairs display. To help you differentiate the x-, y-, and z-axes, a different color is assigned to each. You can change the default axes colors to any color you want. In addition, you can specify the size of the crosshairs display, enable grips attraction for the cursor, and you can elect to use crosshairs as the default pointer shape.

To change the options on the Crosshairs tab
  1. Do one of the following:
  2. Choose Tools > Options.
  3. Type config and then press Enter.
  4. Click the Crosshairs tab.
  5. Select the options you want.
  6. When you have finished, click OK
    1. For each axis, click Color and select an axis color from the palette.
    2. Select to always display the pointer as the crosshairs (instead of the small box).
    3. Select to move the crosshairs automatically to grips within a certain range.
    1. Enter or scroll to a number for the grips attraction range. Higher points increase the range of the attraction.
    2. Enter or scroll to a number for the percentage of the screen to be used by the crosshairs cursor.
