QCAD 3 crashes on opening DXF

Post by annag528 » Fri Aug 19, 2016 5:43 pm

Hello,

I am using Windows 7 and QCAD 3.15.4 Community Edition with the DXF plugin. I am attempting to open a text only annotation DXF I generated in ArcGIS and QCAD crashes to desktop every time. I have a feeling the file is too large? I must note that I have no CAD experience, I am a GIS technician and I just want to make sure that my exports are functional before release. Any tips would be appreciated.

This Dropbox link goes to a zip files with two DXF files:

2016labels1 is the DXF that crashes QCAD.

Your system might be running out of memory while loading / displaying the file. It seems to load just fine here.

That makes a ton of sense. I'll have to beg for a better machine :)
