ProgeSOFT IntelliCAD – Saving and naming views

August 1st, 2005 Leave a comment Go to comments

You can save the view displayed in the current window as a named view. After you save a named view, you can restore that view in the current window at any time.

NOTE View names created or renamed in ProgeSOFT IntelliCAD can have up to 31 characters and cannot include spaces. ProgeSOFT IntelliCAD will, however, display longer view names and names containing spaces, such as views created in AutoCAD 2000.

To save the current view as a named view

1 Do one of the following:
  • Choose View > Save/Restore View.
  • On the View toolbar, click the Save/Restore View tool.
  • Type view and then press Enter.
2 In the prompt box, choose Save.
3 Type a name for the view, and then press Enter.
4 To complete the command and return to your drawing,
   close the window.
