ProgeSOFT IntelliCAD – Controlling visual elements

The number of entities in your drawing and the complexity of the drawing affect how quickly ProgeSOFT IntelliCAD can process commands and display your drawing.
You can improve overall program performance by turning off the display of certain visual elements, such as solid fills and text, while you work on the drawing. When you are ready to print your drawing, turn on the display of these elements so your drawing prints the way you want.

You can also improve performance by turning off entity-selection highlighting and the display of marker blips created when you select locations in the drawing.

Turning Fill on and off

You can reduce the time it takes to display or print a drawing by turning off the dis-play of solid fill.
When Fill is turned off, all filled entities, such as wide polylines and planes, display and print as outlines.
When you turn Fill on or off, you must redraw the drawing before the change is displayed.

To turn Fill on or off

1  Do one of the following:
  • Choose Settings > Fill.
  • On the Settings toolbar, click the Fill tool.
  • Type fill and then press Enter.
2  Choose View > Redraw.


NOTE On the Settings menu, a check mark appears next to the Fill command when it is turned on and the Fill tool on the Settings toolbar is activated.
