If for any reason you do no not have a permanent internet connection, we do offer a downloadable pdf version of the Help, a download link sits at the bottom of our help center page. This will be further improved and updated in the future.
Stating with BricsCAD V19, I do not have help files locally, on my computer. The _HELP command (F1) will re-direct me to the Bricsys website, which requires an internet connection.
Until BricsCAD V19, Help consists of 4 .chm files sitting in the C:\Program Files\Bricsys\BricsCADversion\Help\en_US folder. These files are interlinked: double click (or create a shortcut) to) BricsCAD.chm to launch the Help.
Starting with BricsCAD V19, we have migrated to an online Bricsys Help Center.
We are using the latest cloud technology to host a help system that is up to today's standards, including rich content, lessons, tutorials and more.
We've merged all support sources into this new system:
- Old CHM help
- Knowledge base
- Tutorials from the blog
- added brand new step by step lessons.
System variables are not included in offline help. The Settings dialog box has help for all system variables and user preferences.
We are in the process of translating all the Help Center content into multiple languages.
