How to move or drag the selected design or the line types instead of having to use the Move tool?


It is possible to move, drag the selected design or the line types in ArtiosCAD, it can be enabled by switching ON the option in the Defaults, please refer the below picture and change the settings.

In the Freehand Drag section, check the Lines, arcs, Beziers and the Text, dimensions, graphics checkboxes to enable you to move or drag the line types or other selected objects within the design board.


An incorrect modification of values and parameters in the ArtiosCAD Defaults can cause critical problems that might lead to severe problems in the correct functioning of the program. Esko cannot guarantee the proper working of your ArtiosCAD installation due to an incorrect handling of parameters and settings. A reinstall might be mandatory in order to restore the original system state. For this reason, Esko recommends that you take regular backups of the ServerLib (Shared Defaults) folder, the database and the FileStore.

Please contact your local Esko Support team in case you need more advice related to backups.
