IntelliCAD is a product developed by the ITC Consortium which comprises different companies from around the world. This guarantees the necessary support in case of any problems which may arise handling such a vast software project. Every company participating as a trading member in the ITC Consortium can distribute products based on IntelliCAD technology. This kind of co-operation guarantees the basic functionality and compatibility. To the basic characteristics of IntelliCAD, progeCAD adds a great many of improvements and additional functions which make progeCAD the best IntelliCAD version currently distributed on the market.

progeCAD is a CAD program sold at a fraction of the cost of rival products; how can its characteristics compare?

The best way to assess progeCAD's actual features is to try the product. It is the easiest way to understand whether the declared characteristics correspond to reality. Please go to the Download webpage to request a Trial Version.

Drawing

Opening a drawing made in AutoCAD the text is not properly aligned. How can I solve it?

This depends on the font. The opened drawing makes use of AutoCAD fonts. Anyone in possession of a regular AutoCAD license can also use  the fonts supplied with AutoCAD in the progeCAD program along with the numerous fonts already available in progeCAD. Just open the Tools > Options menu and access the Path/File tab > Support paths sub-menu. Double click Fonts and add the fonts installation path. For ex.: C:\Program Files\AutoCAD R14\Fonts. For the 2000 version of AutoCAD the simplex font can be found in Support directory. You can add this path too (For ex.: C:\AutoCAD LT 2000\Fonts;C:\AutoCAD LT 2000\Support) or copy this font to the folder Fonts of AutoCAD 2000. This guarantees a perfect display of any project using the simplex.shx font.

Can I use AutoCAD's fonts (the .SHX files) with progeCAD?

Anyone who owns a regular AutoCAD license can use, besides the numerous fonts available with progeCAD, also the fonts supplied with AutoCAD.
To do this, open the Tools menu, under Options in Path/File, Support paths sub-menu, in Fonts add the fonts' installation path. For ex.: C:\Program Files\AutoCAD R14\Fonts. For the 2000 version of AutoCAD the simplex font can be found Support directory. You can add this path too (For ex.: C:\AutoCAD LT 2000\Fonts;C:\AutoCAD LT 2000\Support) or copy this font to the folder Fonts of AutoCAD 2000. This guarantees a perfect display of any project using the simplex.shx font.
If when progeCAD was installed on your PC an AutoCAD installation is already present, the font path will be automatically added to the standard ones.
The fonts used for the drawing's text depend on the text's style.
With progeCAD it is possible to specify the font to be used in place of other fonts.
Sometimes it may be necessary to use only some types of font for a drawing, or to convert the fonts used into different fonts.
To this purpose the font mapping tables can be used.
If for example drawings are shared with other AutoCAD users, a font mapping table can be used in order to specify the alternative font progeCAD must use for the text originally created in a different font.
The font mapping table (FMP) is an ASCII file containing a font mapping for each line.
Each line contains the basic name of the font file (without the path) followed by a semicolon (;) and the name of the alternative font file with the relative extension (for example .shx or .ttf).
It is for example possible to type the following string in a font mapping table in order to specify that the romanc.shx font file must be substituted by the IC-romans.shx font file.
romanc.shx;IC-romans.shx
progeCAD comes with a default font mapping table included in the file ICAD.FMP, which is stored in the progeCAD folder.
This file can be modified with any ASCII text editor. It is also possible to specify a different table file in the Options dialogue box or by means of the FONTMAP system variable.
How to specify a font mapping table
1 From the Tools menu choose Options.
2 In the Paths/File list
3 Insert the mapping file name (.fmp) in the 'Font Identification' box
progeCAD's original setting uses icad.fmp; if no substitution of font is needed, delete or rename the ICAD.FMP file.
Also remember that...
Is it possible to use AutoCAD's fonts (the .SHX files) with progeCAD?
Yes,progeCAD is compatible with AutoCAD fonts file .shx.
To do this, open the "Options" menu and select the "File Paths" tab; then add the fonts' installation path under "fonts".
For ex: C:\Program Files\AutoCAD R14\fonts;c:\Program Files\AutoCAD R14\support
If when progeCAD was installed on your PC an AutoCAD installation is already present, the font path will be automatically added to the standard ones.
If you have original AutoCAD Fonts and want to avoid font substitution of standard ones (Ex. ROMANS.SHX SIMPLEX.SHX)
You also must open the font mapping file, icad.fmp and either delete or comment out the line that makes a font substitution for your AutoCAD font.
For example, suppose you have simplex.shx located at C:\ACADFONT and you click on Tools on the menu bar and then Options to identify C:\ACADFONT as an alternate font directory. But when you open a drawing that uses simplex.shx, the program continues to substitute ic-simplex.shx.
The solution is to open icad.fmp with a text editing program and either delete the line simplex;ic-simplex.shx or comment it out so that it reads:
;simplex;ic-simplex.shx
Then the next time you launch the program it will no longer substitute ic-simplex.shx for simplex.shx.

Text string has wrong fonts even if I've copied them on my computer

- Check if the font path is specified correctly in progeCAD options. From Tools->Options choose Path/Files tab > Support paths sub-menu, and insert the correct path for your fonts double clicking the Fonts folder. You can add several different paths separated by a semicolon ;

- progeCAD makes an automatic substitution of fonts not available, check file icad.fmp (it is stored into progeCAD main directory), if a font substitution is present for one you have on the disk, delete this row. Font substitution syntax is OriginalFont;OptionalFont

Some texts are not displayed properly

The font used in the drawing is not present on the PC on which progeCAD® is installed. Font installation is required.
or
Make sure that a font search path is present among those displayed in the menu Tools -> Options -> Paths/File -> Support paths -> Fonts. If it is not, add the character ";" after the queued existing routes and then the font path.
or
Verify that the font replacement is not active. Open with a text editor (e.g. "Notepad" Windows) the file "icad.fmp" that is situated in Start menu of Windows -> All Programs -> progeCAD 2XXX Pro ENG -> Utility -> progeCAD 20XX Professional Center  -> Settings  -> User Support Folder.
Example:
The font not properly displayed is "romans". After verifying the installation of the font on your system and therefore the presence of the full path among those displayed in the fonts location (Tools -> Options -> Paths/File -> Support paths -> Fonts), open the file "icad.fmp" and remove the row with the following content: "romans; ic-romans. shx. " This will avoid the replacement of fonts.

Manage Big Fonts.

If the font used in the drawing is not present on your PC, install it to see your drawing properly.
If you cannot do that, opening the drawing with progeCAD a dialog box for fonts substitution shows up.
Choose the font compatible with the one to replace.
NOTE
To ensure the correct management of installed Bigfonts you must change the file Bigfont.ini
Start -> All Programs -> progeCAD 2XXX pro ENG -> Utility ->User Support Folder
this file specifies the language to which the installed font belongs.
SYNOPSIS:
"Name of the font with"; " language reference number"
CODES OF REFERENCE LANGUAGES:
JAPANESE_CODEPAGE_INDEX = 1,
TRADITIONAL_CHINESE_CODEPAGE_INDEX = 2,
KOREAN_CODEPAGE_INDEX = 3,
SIMPLIFIED_CHINESE_CODEPAGE_INDEX = 5
Example
for a font that is called chinas_fzhjt.shx in simplified Chinese, you will add a row
chinas_fzhjt.shx; 5

While using the program, the pointer leaves a trail on the drawing area. How can I fix it?

To fix the problem, it is necessary to disable the Hardware Acceleration. To do this, access the Display section of the progeCAD Options dialog ( in the Tools menu > Option) and uncheck Hardware Acceleration.

The movement of the cursor on the drawing area is erratic; what can I do?

This is a problem that generally depends on the settings of the FlyOver snap (advanced snaps).
Fly over snaps are a special mode of object Snaps which allow a user of progeCAD to display immediately the relevant points of objects (endpoint, centre, midpoint, intersection, etc.).
For complex drawings (several drawn entities) or if a PC is not very fast, the use of this mode can overload the computer.
Should any problem arise, only one value at the time should be set (for ex. only End, Centre, Intersection, etc.); alternatively this function should be disabled and object Snaps should be used only when necessary by means of the relative toolbar.
To set the Object Snaps, position the cursor over the Esnap icon on the status bar in the bottom right corner of progeCAD and press the mouse right button.
From the menu, select 'Settings'
The required snaps should then be selected from the control window.
The FlyOver button can be used for activating the settings of FlyOver Snaps.

I inserted an OLE Object and now I cannot open it anymore. What should I do?

This problem occurs when external references (Xref) are used and its re-occurrence can be erratic.
It could happen even after opening and saving the drawing several times.
It relates to all OLE objects that can be inserted (images, Excel spreadsheets, Word documents etc.).
If you have this problem, you just need to delete the .vbi extension file with the same name of your drawing found in the same directory as the .dwg file.

I cannot open a drawing.

Where:
01. An error message is displayed and the drawing is not opened.
02. An error message is not displayed but the drawing won't open.
03. The loading of a drawing started but after its completion or before it progeCAD® goes wrong.
In all these cases, the file may be corrupted, so it requires recovery:
-- Start progeCAD®
-- From the File > Utility menu choose "Recover"
-- Select the damaged file and confirm
-- After the procedure it is necessary to save the drawing for the operation to take effect on it.
It is recommended that you use the "Save as" command assigning another name to the recovered file to avoid losing any crucial information that was not recovered.

When open a drawing, the content of the parts are different.

Where:
The drawing is open, but some of its details are not present
In this case, the file may be corrupted, so it requires recovery:
-- Start progeCAD®
-- From the File > Utility menu choose "Recover"
-- Select the damaged file and confirm
-- After the procedure it is necessary to save the drawing for the operation to take effect on it.
It is recommended that you use the "Save as" command assigning another name to the recovered file to avoid losing any crucial information that was not recovered.

Display lines thickness in the working area

-- Click on the button "LWT" in the status bar of progeCAD®  to enable or disable the display of line weight.
OR:
-- From the Tools menu, choose " Drawing Settings" .
-- Under the "Display", under the label "Change settings:" choose from: "lineweight."
-- Select  "display lineweights".
-- Exit the form confirming with the button "Ok"

Copy and Paste commands do not work. I cannot copy objects from one drawing to another.

The reason could be that the drawing from which you are copying your entities has been closed.
-- Make sure the file from which you are copying your entities is still open.
-- If it is closed: open the source file, select the entities to be copied using the "Copy" or "Copy with base point" commands from the Edit menu
-- Open or switch to the destination drawing keeping the source drawing open, go to the Edit menu and choose the "Paste" or "Paste to original coordinate" commands.
NOTE
The right way to copy is always by using the "Copy" command from the Edit menu.

After copying part of a drawing, the Linetype in the destination drawing is different from that of the original drawing

The "LTSCALE" variable must have been set to a different value.
Check the value of the "LTSCALE" variable in the drawing of origin by typing on the command bar "LTSCALE" and pressing "ENTER"
Move to the destination drawing and repeat the operation described above.
If the value of the variable in the destination drawing is different, change it by typing on the command bar the correct value.

The hot key of zoom and pan.

The wheel of the Mouse
rotation -> Zoom IN and Zoom Out
pressed -> Pan in the active window
double-click -> Zoom Extension in the Active window

To use the CTRL key for the Zoom and Pan commands (progeCAD 2016 and newer versions), you need to enable Mouse Advanced Functions.
These settings can be found in the menu Express -> Mouse Advanced Functions (variable CTRLMOUSE)
CTRL + Left mouse button pressed -> 3D orbit in the window Enabled
CTRL + SHIFT + Left Mouse button pressed -> Zoom IN and Zoom Out the window
CTRL + SHIFT + Right Mouse button pressed -> Pan in the Active window
SHIFT + mouse-> Pan in the Active window

Corporate Licenses

What are Corporate Licenses?

Corporate licensing is the optimum solution for companies with numerous CAD seats which offers good value for money. Corporate One Site, Corporate Country and Corporate Global licenses allow to activate an unlimited number of progeCAD Professional copies on all computers under the company license proprietor name. The territorial limit is the sole restriction of usage and is based on the Corporate license type (One Site, Country, Global). Still, the company, proprietor of the license, may hold progeCAD software copies installed on laptops belonging to the company to enable its employees to use progeCAD remotely, out of the corporate office.

Corporate One Site license allows the unlimited installation of software copies in the premises of a business (a building or a group of buildings situated in the same location) with the exception of laptops belonging to the organization on which the software can be installed and used by employees even out of the corporate office.

Corporate Country license allows the unlimited installation of software copies in an organization with multiple premises situated within the same country.

Corporate Global license allows the unlimited installation of software copies in an organization which has multiple premises situated worldwide.

How to deploy Corporate solutions?

The progeCAD Professional software is installed and activated on every single PC, so a Server is not required for licensing management. The activation of progeCAD can be carried out either on each single PC after the software installation, as in the case of Single Licenses, or by using a specific tool for the network automated installation which allows to activate and install the license during the installation process. Once all progeCAD Professional software copies are activated making use of the tool, the computers with progeCAD will be operable even not connected to the network. The tool for automated activation with the instructions is provided on the corporate license purchase.
