I have been working on this drawing for a long time, (several versions of Dcad - current is DoubleCadXT 5) and have imported an Acad survey as an "underlay". The drawing has been cranky' and in short, has corrupted over time. However I am now on the downhill run to get Council building approval and I need to have it working smoothly. It has crashed 5 times today usually when extending or trimming a line.
I do not want to start again but am willing to start with a "dumb" version of the drawing. For example could I export a copy with no splines or beziers, in 2d only (the survey import was 3d and working with that caused some funny lines in perspective view) etc. I could have it all in one layer, all at zero linewidth, and continuous lines, and all text "standard".
I would then reassign the layers, colours, line widths, etc to recreate the drawing to the current appearance.
Is there such a method?
Yours, in anticipation and dread.
