Saving and Transferring Settings to Another Computer

There are three types of settings in nanoCAD – symbols, interface settings (highlighted yellow) and organization settings:

The settings are automatically saved in a separate file and read when creating a new document:

·         Interface settings affect the operation of the application.

·         Settings for design elements determine how a drawing designed using nanoCAD will look.


To use the settings made for design elements by default, check the Design Settings box in the Save as default section. The established parameters of the design elements settings items will be applied by default for all new documents, as well as for newly created design elements in the current document.

Otherwise, all settings changes will be valid only in the current program session.

Saving, loading and restoring settings for design elements is managed in the File menu of this dialog:
