ProfiCAD 11

Before installing version 11

Version 11 no longer supports the obsolete format in which some symbols have been created (before version 5).

Please convert your symbols to make them compatible with version 11. To start the conversion, select the FileConvert symbols to new format command.

Upgrading from a version older than version 10:

First download version 10.6 (portable), Do not install it, just unzip it to the harddisk and perform the conversion. Then you can install version 11 upgrade.

Export as PDF

Start the conversion to PDF with the OutputsExport as PDF command or with this icon:

The export as PDF is subject to two restrictions:

  1. It only works on Windows 10.
  2. Cross-references are not supported.


You can save and reuse parts of drawings that you use frequently.

To save a snippet:

  1. In your drawing, select the objects that represent the snippet.
  2. Invoke the EditSave as snippet command.
  3. A dialog box will then appear. Enter the name of the snippet. You can also organize snippets in groups.

Use the InsertSnippet command to insert a snippet into your drawing.

Transfer snippets to another computer:

The snippets are stored in the symbol library in the “_CONF\snippets” directory. Individual snippets are saved in files with the extension "snippet".

Import symbols from AutoCAD

This is a completely new import from the DWG and DXF formats. The existing import is retained in the program. Further information can be found here: Comparison of both imports.


Printing and exporting helper lines

Use the ViewPrint and export helper lines command to set whether helper lines should be printed and exported.
