Hello;          We have customers that prefer Cgm files over Dxf for some 2/d drawing requirements. I'm wondering if anyone does this consistently & has found a way to do this more efficiently. Presently I output the SW file as a dxf, then go in & fix some scaling issues like leader lines or notes moving. I also sometimes have to replace flow… (Show more)

(and this forum need a "horror museum" type of post for this kind of monstrosity).   Edit : Keep in mind that this topic is mostly here to show the importance of the design intent an… (Show more)

Let's try to keep this thread on topic.  Just post your favorite quotes.  Let's keep the non-contributing banter to a minimum.   I keep a file to accumulate inspiring quotes.  I ran across this one today and thought it was worthy of sharing.  The author of the article was quoting a taxi driver he met leaving a conference.  It would be nice to… (Show more)
