Description morbe 2005-11-23 13:15:46 UTC
In the draw component, Import of DXF files is generally incorrect. I tried this
since version 1.1.3 and the problem have not been solved even in 2.0 final.
Problems allways are in size. i used 3 different DXF file variants. All tree of
them can be imported in Coreldraw 10.0 without problems and without size errors,
so i assume that those dxf files not have any errors.
There is a free HPG to DXF converter on the web named HPGL2DXF. Dxf files which
are converted from hpgl by this tool import perfect in coreldraw but in OOo-draw
are imported way to small.
I can provide sample dxf-files if needed.

best regards, G. Morbe

Summary adapted.

It would be nice if Draw was more DXF friendly i.e. Save, import, export and 
use DXF in gallery - or am I missing something already in Draw?

I find an interesting (IMHO) thing: OpenOffice (at least 3.0.0) sets scaling
that based on last file view in AutoCAD window if imports dxf from AutoCAD.
I will attach 2 files. All differences between this files will be just zoom
before saving in AutoCAD. Not page settings, not draw limits and any settings.
Just zoom.
