DCADWIN.INI Undocumented

DataCAD contains some options that may be customized through the DataCAD's user interface. However, some options are undocumented and may only be changed by editing the DCADWIN.INI file through a text editor like Notepad. These "keys" must be entered into the DCADWIN.INI file in your Windows directory exactly as they appear below and should be added where indicated.

PLEASE NOTE:

Incorrect modifications to the DCADWIN.INI file may cause the program to not run. This should not be attempted by novices. Always make a backup copy of the DCADWIN.INI file prior to editing.

The DCADWIN.INI file includes settings for fonts, paths, key files, interface settings, etc., some of which are not accessible through the Preferences pull-down menu in DataCAD.
