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 also save it in the AutoCAD 2004 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.

To save a drawing with a password

  1. Do one of the following:
    • Choose File > Save As.
    • Type saveas and then press Enter.
  2. In the Save Drawing As dialog box, under Save As Type, choose AutoCAD 2004 (dwg).
  3. Click Password Protect.
  4. Choose a folder where you want to save the drawing.
  5. In File Name, specify the name of the file you want to create.
  6. Click Save.
  7. In the Password dialog box, enter a password.
  8. If desired, record and store the password in a safe place. If you forget the drawing’s password, the drawing cannot be opened or recovered.
  9. Click OK.
