In this tutorial, Josh Modglin walks through the use of profiles from the Profiles tab of AutoCAD’s options. Profiles store all the parameters set within the Options dialog and stores them to an external file. The instructor describes how to create that the file, import the file, and, more importantly, when it is best to use a profile.
- [Instructor] Within our Options configuration,…we've made all of these changes.…We want to share them and so,…the first thing that we may find is…that we have the ability to create profiles.…Profiles, really is a powerful means…to configure a computer.…It contains all the settings within the Options…and then you can export the profile…and import profiles to another computer.…Now, we'd mentioned that it contains all the settings found…within all of these different tabs.…
The challenge with that is many of these tabs…contain user preferences.…We are going to overwrite those user preferences…and really lock down the users in such a way…they might not be as efficient by using profiles.…So, this may not be the most effective way…to standardize the company setup, using profiles.…
