PGP file command aliases custom


Recommended Posts

My company is switching to a 'miniframe' system for our network such as this: http://www.miniframe.com/KB/OnlineHelp/hardware_requirements.html


Basically there is one main computer handing the Autocad and we still have our own workstations. the problem is, I have my own custom commands in the acad.PGP file, and apparently, if I alter the command aliases, it will change for everyone else.


Is there a work around for this where I can have my own custom aliases WITHOUT affecting the rest of the company? or else I will have to use the standards which are terrible.

You can't convince the powers-that-be to adopt your new and improved command aliases?


Maybe this holds the key to solving your problem.


"The first PGP file found in the AutoCAD-based product's support search paths is loaded, which are defined on the Files tab of the Options dialog box."


I translate that to mean there could be more than one acad.pgp. The first one AutoCAD comes across and loads is the winner.

Believe me if I were being sarcastic you'd definitely know it.


First guy that crosses the finish line wins.


Take your custom acad.pgp file and put it in a folder on your root drive. Add the path to this folder at the very top of your support file search path. Test it. Does it work?
