Introduction - Comparing progeCAD and CAD to manual drafting

Using tools

In manual drafting, you use tools such as pencils, rulers, T-squares, templates, erasers, and so on. When you create a drawing in progeCAD, you use a mouse instead of a pencil, and you use the mouse to select other tools--commands you select from a menu or a toolbar.

You use some tools to create basic entities, such as lines, circles, and arcs, and other tools to modify existing entities (for example, to copy or move them or to change properties such as color and linetype).
