Modifying entities

progeCAD provides many editing tools for modifying a drawing. You can easily move, rotate, stretch, or change the scale of drawing entities. When you want to remove an entity, you can delete it with a few clicks of the mouse. You can also make multiple copies of any entity and copy entities from one drawing to another.

You can modify most entities using general-purpose editing commands. Some complex entities require special commands to modify specific properties. Most of these tools and commands are located on the Modify toolbar and the Modify menu. This section explains how to:

  • Select entities using entity-selection methods and grips.
  • Change the properties of entities.
  • Rearrange entities by moving, rotating, or changing the display order.
  • Resize entities by stretching, scaling, extending, trimming, or editing their lengths.
  • Break and join entities.
  • Edit polylines.
  • Explode entities.
  • Create chamfers and fillets.
