If you’ve already made the Custom profile you can launch AutoCAD to run that profile, you just need to define it as a text string.


1. Right click the AutoCAD icon >  select ‘Properties’ > Shortcut tab


2. In the ‘Target’ box enter ‘/p’  followed by the profile name. For example:

"C:\Program Files\AutoCAD\acad.exe" /p "profile-name"
(including the quote marks)


3. Save the setting. AutoCAD will launch with this new profile in the future.



Note: These steps would be for Windows only.
