Dear progeCAD Customer,

the reason why you got into the reference edit mode is that you probably double clicked an existing block. Thereafter, you will no longer be able to save/close your drawing up to the time that you exit it. To do it, you are expected to click a specific button (Discard Changes/Save Changes) in the Refedit toolbar. As an alternative solution, you have to run the REFCLOSE command.
To do it, write REFCLOSE in the progeCAD Command line, press <Enter>, and choose the desired option.

We look forward to receiving your feedback. Please forward it to the support@progecad.com email address. Thank you.

Best regards
