The Dude,

progeCAD Entity Snap or "ESNAP" (similar to AutoCAD Object Snap or "OSNAP") is changed via the status bar at the bottom of progeCAD. If you search for "snap" in the F1 searchable help you will find the same information on the subject as found here:

Basically, right-mouse-click on ESNAP (located next to GRID ORTHO etc) on the status bar at the bottom of your progeCAD window. When you right-click on the ESNAP button a mini context menu appears where you click SETTINGS..
A dialogue appears where you can change your "magnetic" ESNAP settings.

hi caddit

thnx for the reply

if you don't mind i have a second question
the first time i installed progecad i didn't have this problem
but after a reinstall... if i draw a horizontal line it draws two lines, kinda double
if i draw a vertical line it's just one line
so it's really weird and i can't find any settings :roll:
i just need single lines, not double

thnx in advance

ps i'm using progecad
