- M9 import DWG file problems
I tried importing (File > Import) an Acad 2000 file into M9 18.104.22.168 and it had trouble compared to M8.
- It didn't import the color columns
- Was very slow to zoom
- Layers would appear / disappear when panning the Map (that is created automatically on import) and the full complement of layers was never displayed in the Map.
- Turning layers on/off by double clicking their tab would cause apparent random redraws of the Map.
I also tried importing via New Data Source > Type: File:dwg > Source... > Create Data Source with similar results. I tried linking too but that didn't make any difference.
After a minute or so of panning around and zooming Windows warned me to "Close programs to prevent information loss... close these programs: Manifold System 9.0"
I am running this on Windows 7 32bit and have Manifold 8 open with the same dwg file in it so I understand resources will be low. Interestingly the Map in M8 still pans and zooms fine!
Has anyone else tried working with dwgs in M9?
