Text in a .DXF file

Post by RobinClay » Sun Aug 18, 2019 5:07 pm

This is an unusual one !

I'm having a problem with adding "text" to a .DXF drawing file.
The file works just FINE in AutoCAD's TrueView, but when I add just this, it seizes up, and I have to use Taskmanager to kill it.

I start by removing the

0
EOF

from the file, then dd just a line of text, and it won't work:-

0
SECTION
2
ENTITIES
999
=[ A text element ]=
0
TEXT
10
120000
20
186000
30
0
1
Happiness
0
ENDSEC
999
=[ End of Text ]=
0
EOF

Can you please be more specific? Is this a question about QCAD, about the DXF format or about Autocad / Trueview? Please note that this is a forum for QCAD and related products. We cannot offer any help with Autocad related questions (or any other products for that matter).
