    Export DXF gives a different file name depending how you export it?

    Peter Farnham

      Why?

       

      When Saving a two sheet drawing as a DXF I get the Export options window.

      I choose export all sheets to separate files.

      The resulting files have 00_ and 01_ before the file name. ( Binary?)

       

      Now when I run task scheduler and choose export to DXF I look at the export options window.

      I choose All sheets.

      The resulting files have _1 and _2 after the file name. (this makes sense as Sheet1 and Sheet2).

       

      Why the different results?

       

      My VAR said this is the expected result, well It was not expected by me!

       

      I expected a pop up box to tell me the file already exists and do you want to over write it, hmm..... the way Solidworks works when trying to save a file with the same name and extension.

       

      So the question is, who expects it to work the way it does and why does it work this way?
