Shapefile Import Bug?

Recommended Posts

VW2008 now has an Import Shapefile menu item. So far I have tried to import three .shp files (just as a test). One opened with linework but no database, even though the data files were in the folder. One didn't successfully import anything. The third, in repeated attempts, immediately crashes (lockup) VectorWorks. This .shp file was copied from an AutoCAD machine.

Has anyone else found the Shapefile import to be buggy?

more info for tech support... I am a municipal employee and take the shapefile directly off the main GIS server. I park it in a folder on my computer, along with related files with extensions .dbf, .prj, .sbn, .sbx, .shx . I thought I could import shapefiles using VW 12.5 but for VW 2008 apparently, not anymore.....

If you wish, I can give you access to ftp site to try GIS files for troubleshooting.
