Important settings before drawing Autocad

We cannot define different DWS files for different components, such as not being able to define a DWS file for size type and a file for Linetype.

Each installation from each DWS file will be processed. If conflicting information is included in different DWS files, the first file information in the list will be used. If needed, you can change the order of DWS files to change the priority.

When setting Autocad standards, the CHX batch checker file with the same name as the project file will be created in the project directory. The CHX file contains all project drawings in the form of drawings to be checked and all DWS files specified as drawings for inspection. You can run this batch file to examine the entire project or test each project manually.

Follow the steps below:

Step 1: Click on the = iconOpen =>Project.

Step 2: Select the project where you want to set the Autocad standard settings, right-click and select Project Properties.

Step 3: Expand the item Advanced, then click Project Standards.

Step 4: Click here AutoCAD standards tab.

Step 5: To add a new DWS file, click the icon.

By default new DWS files will be added to the bottom of the list. This means that the file will be finally processed and the first DWS file settings will take precedence.

Step 6: To change the order of DWS files in the list, just use the up and down buttons.

Step 7: To delete a DWS file from the list, click on the file name and then click the icon.

Deleting DWS files will only remove the file reference from the project. Files are not deleted from the file system.

Step 8: If you have set up DWS files as standard AEC drawings in the Styles settings and Display settings, you can reuse these settings in the standard AutoCAD settings by clicking Add.dws files in the Standard Styles section.

This will copy the standard AEC files to the AutoCAD Standards tab, and you can use the standard Autocad files in the project.
