Working with multiple drawings
With the multiple-document interface (MDI) feature, you can open more than
one drawing inside of progeCAD. Because you can open and work on several drawings
at one time, you can copy, cut, or paste an entity from one drawing to another.
Each drawing appears in a drawing window, which has the following advantages:
- You can see two or more drawings side by side.
- You can easily copy entities from one drawing to another.
- Using the progeCAD Explorer, you can copy such elements as layers, linetypes,
and text styles from one drawing to another.
- Like viewports on the Model tab, you can tile or overlap drawing windows;
unlike viewports on the Model tab, drawing windows maximize or reduce to an
Each drawing window that you open and work on retains in the Prompt
History log all the commands that you perform, but the command line does not
indicate when you have switched windows.
When you work with more than one drawing open in its own window,
you can easily move, cut, copy, and paste in between drawings. If you move an
entity from one window to another and then want to undo this action, you must
undo it in both drawings for it to take effect. If you copy an entity from one
window to another and then want to undo that action, you must undo it from the
drawing into which you copied the entity. If you cut and paste an entity and
then want to undo that action, you must undo it in both drawings.
