Working with drawings - Opening a drawing

Click Open.

If you want to check all drawings for errors automatically when you open them, choose Tools > Options > General tab and mark the check box for Open Drawings using Recover.

To check a drawing file for errors
  1. With the drawing open that you want to check, do one of the following:
  2. Choose File > Utility > Audit.
  3. Type audit and then press Enter.
  4. Choose whether you want progeCAD to fix any found errors automatically, and then press Enter.
  5. NOTE If the AUDITCTL system variable is set to On and errors are found during a file recovery or audit, an ASCII file is created that describes the audit. The ASCII file is saved in the same folder as the audited drawing and has the same name as the drawing file, but with an .adt extension.
