Working with drawings - Saving your drawing

Saving a drawing with a password

Sometimes drawings may contain confidential information and you want to control who has access to that information. If you need an added level of security, you can save a drawing with a password so only you and those who know the password can open the drawing.

To save a drawing with a password, you must save it in the DWG 2004, or later,drawing (.dwg) file format.

NOTE If you forget a drawing's password, the drawing cannot be opened or recovered. You may want to store all passwords in a safe place.
