Re: Crash upon opening a DWG file

It may be unrelated, but in working on programming source files, which are text files, I sometimes encounter a file that will crash the computer when deleting some text. The problem is that the text will contain a carriage return character at the end of a line of text, instead of a line feed charact...

Re: WildTools Developments

I have spent the last few weeks working on Importing and Exporting SVG files at the request of Riccardo Casoli. It turned out to be a very difficult and complicated thing.

Re: ILEXSOFT High Design Users?

Re: PowerCADD Future

Ric, I do have this on my to-do list at your request. Another user has made the same request. At this time, he gets the drawing into Adobe Illustrator and then to SVG. Also, the recent addition of xml to PowerCADD 9 makes it possible to export all details in a PowerCADD drawing to another program. A...
