Chapter 3. Controlling the AutoCAD 2000 ... > Saving the Options to a Profile

Saving the Options to a Profile

So far, you have dedicated quite a bit of time to reviewing the numerous features in the Options dialog box. As you may have noticed, there are well over one hundred different settings you can control. Although having over one hundred different settings provides you with the ability to set up your drawing environment exactly the way you want, it doesn’t necessarily help if you must work on a different computer temporarily, one that doesn’t have your custom setup. A worse situation occurs when someone else works on your computer while you’re gone, and wipes out your custom settings with their own custom settings. Not only is it frustrating to be forced to redefine your custom settings, it may be impossible to completely restore them if you can’t remember what your settings were.

Fortunately, the Options dialog box provides a simple method for saving and restoring your custom settings. By saving your custom settings in a Profile, not only can you restore settings if they are accidentally lost, but you can even copy your custom settings to another computer.
