Options - General tab
Use this tab to set the experience level, save options, and VBA security.
DIALOG BOX OPTIONS
Experience Level Sets the difficulty level for menus and toolbars. The
number and complexity of commands displayed on menus and toolbars increases
from Beginner to Advanced. Select the experience level that is right for you
based on your level of experience with CAD (computer-aided design). The default
value, Advanced, is set during installation. The Customize
command determines which toolbar buttons and menu items are displayed by each
AutoSave Enable AutoSave turns the automatic file saving feature on
or off. When on, AutoSave creates a backup of the drawing at specified time
intervals, defined in minutes in the Time field. The default is 30 minutes;
selecting a value of 0 minutes is the same as turning AutoSave off. The file
is saved in the folder specified in Options > Paths/Files for Temporary Files,
with the file extension specified in the AutoSave Drawing Extension box (by
NOTE Do not use too brief a time for AutoSave with large
drawings, because it can take a minute or more to save a very large drawing.
Save As Select the default file format that you want to display in
the Save Drawing As dialog box. For example, if you use the Save As command
to save most of your drawings in a legacy file format, you can select that file
format as the default so you don’t have to select it each time you save
a drawing using the Save As command.This setting has no effect on saving existing
or new drawings using commands other than Save As — progeCAD always
saves existing drawings in their current file format and saves new drawings
with the most current file format.
Open If you regularly open drawings that contain errors or
damaged data, for example, if you are a new progeCAD user and your original
drawings were created using different CAD software, you can enable Open Drawings
using Recover. This option automatically checks all drawings for errors when
using the Open command, and attempts recovery, as needed. Viewing warning messages
when opening drawings allows you to know which files are being fixed by progeCAD
and what errors have occurred; however, you can also choose to hide the warnings
by marking the checkbox for Hide Warnings when Opening Drawings using Recover.
VBA Security Click the check box if you do not plan to use
Visual Basic Applications (VBA). This may improve performance and can also enhance
security if you are running progeCAD at a low security level.
