Drawing file size

Post by MiHeGo » Thu Apr 26, 2012 4:16 pm

The first drawing had a size of 819 Kb in QCAD 2 and now 1.584 Kb after only one action : show all layers. Nearly twice the size !

This has nothing to do with the modification but with the different file format version that is being used by default in QCAD 3. QCAD 3 uses DXF / DWG R2012 by default which supports for example true colors and other things that DXF R12 doesn't.
