Creating profiles

Create profiles if you want to save your custom drawing environment settings. This can be helpful if you have two or more drawing environments that you use regularly.

When you create a new profile, the current drawing environment settings are automatically saved with the new profile.

To create a profile
  1. Do one of the following:
  2. Choose Tools > Options.
  3. Type config and then press Enter.
  4. Click the Profiles tab.
  5. Click Create.
  6. Enter a name, a description (optional), and then click OK.
  7. In the Options dialog box, click OK.
  8. Make changes to your drawing environment.
  9. progeCAD automatically saves the settings to the new profile.
  10. NOTE In some cases, for example, with toolbars, you need to exit and restart progeCAD before the settings are saved with the profile. This is because profiles save settings from your computer's registry and some settings are only saved to the registry when you exit progeCAD.
