Description Unknown 2003-05-28 05:24:12 UTC
I have found a problem with importing a .dxf file into DRAW(linux version) while
everything is ok with same version of draw in windows).
I have a .dxf file (AutoCAD2000, VariCAD8, QCAD open it correct)
and when I import it to DRAW it shows up ugly - half of objects
(lines,circles and so on) are loosed at all, others are incorrect.
I use RedHat 7.3. I have checked it in OpenOffice-1.0.2, OO1.1beta1,
OO1.1beta2,StarOffice.beta2. Same time when I import the same .dxf file
into OO1.1beta in WindowsXP Pro. everything is ok. All objects are correct.

Comment 3 wolframgarten 2003-05-28 07:29:59 UTC
This is reproduceable in 1.1beta2 and in a current internal version.
Please have a look. Reassigned to Sven.

SJ->THB: I can not reproduce this bug, but there must be a problem
somewhere. As I know you prefer such kind of miracles.
Comment 9 thb 2003-06-10 15:56:41 UTC
Hm. Cannot reproduce by myself (yet), but seen on Wolfram's screen.
Comment 10 thb 2003-07-04 14:26:09 UTC
Thanks to stunnix, I'm pretty confident that the atof's in dxfgrprd.cxx is the 
culprit there.
Comment 11 thb 2003-09-12 18:50:49 UTC
Sven, please check whether these atofs can be replaced by our
locale-independent rtl methods.

OOo Later." 
Comment 14 sergey_feo 2009-03-04 18:23:23 UTC
The new OpenOffice 3.0.0 imports "columbia.dxf" much better.
I attach screenshots of this dxf in AutoCAD 2007 and OpenOffice Writer 3.0.0. I
can't find any differences.
