Working with the progeCAD Explorer

The progeCAD Explorer provides a powerful and convenient way to maintain and manage many of the features and settings of your drawings. You can use the progeCAD Explorer to work with layers, linetypes, text styles, coordinate systems, named views, blocks, and dimension styles within the current drawing or to copy this information between drawings.

This section explains how to use the progeCAD Explorer to:

  • Manage elements related to settings and entities in your drawings.
  • Organize information on layers and manage layers.
  • Create and use linetypes.
  • Load text fonts and create text styles.
  • Select and control coordinate systems.
  • Save and restore named views.
  • Save, insert, and manage blocks.
  • Copy, cut, and paste dimension styles between DWG files.
