Code Page Manager: CODEPAGE


CADdirect allows you to manage which code page is assigned to the current drawing. This unique feature is usually not necessary if you distribute drawings within the same geographic region, but it can be very helpful when sharing or distributing drawings between different geographic regions. Changing the code page is highly desirable especially in geographic regions where several languages are used that require different character sets to display text properly.


System code page Displays the code page for your operating system (this is the same as the SYSCODEPAGE system variable setting).

Drawing code page Select the code page for the current drawing (this is the same as the DWGCODEPAGE system variable setting).
