The DXFTool will now be available in two versions, the Standard Edition and the Professional Edition. The Standard Edition will be maintained and any problems that are discovered will be fixed. The Professional Edition will get all the new features going forward.
The DXFTool Standard Edition release 1.3 has the following fixes and changes:
Fixed the problem with using mapped drive shares as a DXF file output location for the DXFTool.
Changed the Button Text 'Set Default Folder Path' to 'Set Drawing Folder Path' since this is what it actually does. It makes the export folder the same as where the drawing is located.
Made the 'DXF Export' button the default button so you can just open the DXFTool Standard Edition and press
return to repeat the prior export.
Added keyboard accelerators / shortcuts to all the buttons. These MUST be in the language localization satellite DLLs also.
Forced the export file extension to be '.dxf'.
Added a 'The DXF already exists - do you want to replace it?' message and yes / no decision (message box).
Changed the method used to generate ARCs from a CorelDRAW curve to a Building Block Software library
method that works VERY much better.
Improved the progress bar timing - added progress bar updating to the segment processing loop and removed it from the subpath processing loop. This gives a more regular and smoother progress indication.
The size of the DXF files has been reduced many times. Files that were 12KB are now 1.5KB. This means a
HUGE reduction in file transmittal time over a serial link.
Enhanced the installer and DLL to allow installs on systems that do not have a C: drive.
The DXFTool Standard Edition release 1.4 has the following fixes and changes:
Fixed the 'Application not responding' and the progress bar stopping when the main window was moved during
Set all of the buttons to disabled during an export and changed the 'DXF Export' button to 'Cancel'. This can be
used to cancel a very long export. An error window will pop up to remind you the export was cancelled and that the DXF file is not good.
Fixed crashes being caused by items that cannot be exported being present in the drawing. The biggest problems were caused by bitmaps and embedded OLE objects.
Enhanced the export to correctly convert CorelDRAW Symbols to objects and then export them.
The DXFTool Standard Edition release 1.5 has the following fixes and changes:
Fixed an error in the group iterator that caused infinite looping
Added support for handling locked objects in drawings
Added the correct StdUSEnglish language dll to the installer. The one that was being distributed did not have the 'not ok' message after a cancelled export resulting in an empty message box
