Saving your drawing

Saving your drawing    

When you save a drawing, your work is saved in a drawing (.dwg) file.

After you have saved your drawing for the first time, you can save it with a new name. In addition to drawing (.dwg) files, you can also save a drawing in a Drawing Exchange Format (.dxf) file or a drawing template (.dwt) file.

If you created your drawing using a template, saving the drawing does not alter the original template.

If you need an added level of security for your drawing files, you can save the drawing with a password so only you and those who know the password can open the drawing.
