progeCAD System Variables

progeCAD has approximately 360 system variables that store the settings for various commands and functions. To see a complete listing of system variables, in the command bar, type setvar. Then type the system variable name to see the current value of that variable, or you can type ? to see the entire listing of system variables. Unless the variable is read-only, you can also change its value in the command bar.
