import ''special lines'' fro autocad

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

in our country geometers are using a '' special'' design for electricity lines. the lines are dashed with arrows, single or double depending if there is high or low voltage.

the second thing ... phone lines for example are dashed with a letter T coming regularly between the gaps of the line...

all this information does not appear after importing a dwg . how can i make it work?

thanks for your help.

Hi Ray,

thank you for your help. I checked the 2 links you gave me and i am surprised that discussion are 3-4 years old!

I think ( and i am sure i am not the only one...) it's about time that VW can read shx font, in order to get correct dwg files.

In the mean time , this means that i have to re-design the geometer plans ....

totaly un-cool .
