acad .pgp file into Bricscad?

How do I incorporate my acad .pgp file into Bricscad?

  • Answer ✓

    AutoCAD aliases are in the acad.pgp file
    BricsCAD aliases are stored in the default.pgp file.
    Mine is located :
    C:\Program Files\Bricsys\BricsCAD V19 en_US\UserDataCache\Support\en_US\ default.pgp

    The User Reference states:

    When you copy an acad.pgp to a BricsCAD installation, rename the incoming file “default.pgp.”

    The file formats look the same.
    Perhaps save/rename/archive the originals and
    cut and paste the definitions you need from ACAD.pgp into Default.pgp

    Amen to what Kerry said. I copied my PGP preferences from the Acad.pgp & it worked just fine.
    You know, the standard changes like C to Copy instead of Circle (CI). Never did understand Autodesk's methodology w/ that one, because we Copy far more often than we create Circles, & the purpose of the PGP file is productivity, less keystrokes being more productive.

    You'll find you have 2 versions of the file (actually of most of the config files),
    The address I posted is the first one I found on my system and is actually not the one BricsCAD uses.
    If you enter (findfile "default.pgp") at the command line you will find the version that BricsCAD uses.


  • Thank you Kerry Brown and M Dunn. Much appreciated!

  • To Kerry Brown,
    You mentioned that your .pgp file was located at: C:\Program Files\Bricsys\BricsCAD V19 en_US\UserDataCache\Support\en_US\ default.pgp
    I tried using the same "address" and was not successful. BC could not find my new .pgp. I noticed that when I started over and looked in the customize dialog under command aliases the path was C:\Users\Tom\AppData\Roaming\Bricsys\BricsCAD\V19x64\en_US\Support\default.cui.
    Please don't misunderstand, I'm not complaining about your help. I wanted to point out what did not work for me.
    I appreciate you and people like you who take the time to help other users.
    Thank you, sir.

Origami is the Japanese word for paper folding. ORI means to fold and KAMI means paper and involves the creation of paper forms usually entirely by folding.
