By default AutoQuotes Designer and AutoQuotes Plug-in for CAD create a new project whenever the applications are launched. This feature was created to help keep newly created project files "linked" to drawing files in the design environment. This feature can be turned off allowing the CAD application to be started without creating new project file.
You will first need to launch AutoQuotes designer or the CAD plugin as designed. When the CAD ribbon opens, select the AutoQuotes Tab and proceed to the “settings” tab in the AutoQuotes ribbon.
When your settings window opens, uncheck the “create a new project in AQ New Look on Startup” feature.
Select “OK” to close the window and restart your AutoQuotes and CAD applications.
