After playing with the aliases section of the customise dialog box for a few days, I find that some commands are unavailable to me, currently it's, COPYBASEQUICK. in autocad we can edit the pgp file to add or subtract commands and aliases, is there a file that can be edited in progecad...?

See Tools -> Customize -> Menu... -> (click the Aliases tab)

See your F1 progeCAD help for "Customize Aliases" or the online help topic here:

progeCAD aliases are stored in registry (per user, per profile) and should not be changed directly except via the interface described above.

Yes.... I've seen all that, which is why I asked the question....
So, you're saying there is no way to include aliases for commands not included in the "available commands" list of the customise dialog box......?

The trick in that case is to create an alias file to import. Here is an example we will call CK.ISA:

Code: Select all[IntelliCAD Custom Alias File]

In the ALIAS tab there is an IMPORT button - browse and import the above textfile. Change and edit to taste.

Well done, I never would have found that, this program has so many secrets....

I'm nearing the end of my demo period, have managed to get a lot of things to work, no result on a couple, generally can work in Progecad, but very unpredictable results in opening dwgs produced by Progecad, back in autocad.....
