Embeddign pictures (JPG) in to the dxf file

Post by venkatkoka » Thu Apr 10, 2014 8:58 am

Hello All,

After importing a picture in to the dxf file should be saved from where it was imported else the picture can not be shown in the file.

Does the new version is compatible to embed the picture and not copying the link (as in the previous versions)? I have installed on my cleint at present.

Thank you very much for your invaluable reply.

Embedding bitmaps (e.g. JPG) in DXF is not possible. The recommended way to handle this is to save DXF and JPG into the same project directory. If you transfer the drawing, always transfer the entire directory (for example by creating a ZIP archive from it).
