Customizing progeCAD - Setting and changing options - Changing the options on the Profiles tab

Understanding the settings saved in profiles

Profiles save many settings that control the drawing environment. Once you start using a profile, it automatically tracks and stores changes that you make to your drawing environment.

Some settings are saved immediately, but some require that you exit progeCAD and then start progeCAD again. This is because profiles save settings from your computer's registry and some settings are only saved to the registry when you exit progeCAD.
