Subject: Creating profiles

Create profiles if you want to save your custom drawing environment settings. This can be helpful if you have two or more drawing environments that you use regularly.

When you create a new profile, the current drawing environment settings are auto­matically saved with the new profile.

To create a profile

   1   Do one of the following to choose Options ():

   On the ribbon, choose the Application button then choose Options, or choose Tools > Options (in Manage).

   On the menu, choose Tools > Options.

   Type options and then press Enter.

   2   Click the Profiles tab.

   3   Click Create.

   4   Enter a name, a description (optional), and then click OK.

   5   In the Options dialog box, click OK.

   6   Make changes to your drawing environment.

CADdirect automatically saves the settings to the new profile.

Some cases require you to exit and restart CADdirect before settings are saved with the profile.  
This is because profiles save settings from your computer’s registry and some set­tings, such as toolbar settings, are only saved to the registry when you exit Intelli­CAD.
