Ignore objects not displayed by Autodesk TrueView

Hello

We have some drawns that when opened with QCad show objects that are not displayed by Autodesk TrueView. I am having problems when I generate pdf with dwg2pdf because theses objects are interfering into auto-fit feature of dwg2pdf. Have any way to QCad ignore theses objects as Autodesk TrueView do?

Attached:
QCad1.png - Drawn opened with QCad
QCad2.png - Drawn opened with QCad
TrueView.png - Drawn opened with Trueview (Note that some objects are not displayed as example Text '%%')
CAD.dwg - Drawn for reference

Using QCAd Professional 3.22.0
Windows 10 Professional 64 bits

regards,
Rhodolfo Novochadlo.

Hi,

would it be possible to post the actual drawing and not this next to empty cad.dwg example?

The text entity with contents "%%" is definitely present in the drawing file (see DXF below). Unfortunately, I wasn't able to identify why this should not be displayed so far.

Looks like TrueView doesn't accept all character. At least it doesn't likes %

Husky, Andrew, Thanks for your quickly reply.

Husky, CAD.dwg is the real drawn. This drawn have some objects so far from "main drawn", that when you open this file it's appear to be empty. (Try to make zoom near (0,0) point and you will see correct drawn).

These "so far objects" (trash) that are ignored by TrueView (I don't know why too). I have a lot of drawns with this problem, and try to solve (remove this trash) drawn per drawn individually is inviable. Therefore, I'm needing help to possibility that QCad Ignore theses objects as TrueView.

%% is usually used as escape code for the diameter symbol (%%c), degree symbol (%%d), plus/minus (%%p) or to toggle underlining (%%u). Apparently "%%" by itself should be rendered as nothing at all. This will be fixed for the next version.

I'd also recommend to clean up these things in drawing files if at all possible.

If you already know that everything "around" the drawing frame is trash then it's easy to clean the drawing.
Zoom to the drawing,
select the drawing with a mouse pointer rectangle selection,
invert the selection with "TI",
press delete and your trash is gone .....

Husky, Andrew, thank you very much for your help.

I'm avoiding have to do this manually because I have hundreds files with this problem, and as Autodesk DWG Viewer can ignore this "trash", I think that QCad could have same behaviour. But I understand difficulty to identify what is or not is trash automatically.

Thank you very much again,
