BricsCAD allows you to customize the settings that control your drawing environment, and then save and restore those settings in a user profile. You can maintain several user profiles in parallel. So you can choose to run BricsCAD with a white background, minimal set of toolbars, and no command bar. Another user profile will have black background, different toolbars, and no flyover snapping. Both user profiles share the list of recently opened drawings but no other settings.
User profiles can be helpful if you have multiple users with different preferences, or if you are a single user who works on various projects that require unique settings. You can even export your user profile and bring it with you when you work on a different computer.
The User Profile Manager is a standalone tool that lists the existing profiles and provides all the needed operations on user profiles, such as Load, Create, Set Current, Copy, Rename, Delete, Export and Import.
