Re: Not Trusted dwg warning even after saving

If the behavior we see here is intentional,
I would call that disturbing.

Definitely annoying, not sure about disturbing, everything else works fine,
well..., considering it came from some crap program (that or the architect
is terrible). Never thought to ask why it won't stop. I just plop my AB
markups on it and plot. It would be nice if it stopped though...

It should happen if the file was last saved by
an non-Autodesk product.

But, it should not happen if the file is opened
and then saved by AutoCAD.

The fact that it continues to happen even after
saving the file in AutoCAD is disturbing, to say
the least.

This happens to me everytime I get drawings from certain architects using
another CAD program. I always thought it was just the Adesk design.

Hello everyone,

When you open a drawing savad by some other application
you get the warning "This drawing was saved by an application
not developed or licensed by Autodesk................."

But after I save/saveas and close the Drawing from A2k8
This message should not be shown the next time.

But I can not get rid of this message. Is it normal?

Life will be much easier if we just have a printout of
all the commands that exist in Autocad kept handy.

I suspect that this so called "Trusted DWG" issue also serves as a thinly disguized attempt by the AutoDesk company to instill a fear of using their competetor's drawing software and related products thus giving them an unfair seeming monopoly on so called trustworthy CAD software. This may have stemmed from the fact that they A) charge an arm and a leg for somthing that their competition seems to also be able to supply for significantly less & B) seem to update their software at least every year with changes in file format, menus, ect. sometimes seeingly just to have somthing new to make customers think that they have to have the latest and greatest locking them into spending & spending & spending...... can they get more greedy? Do they fear their competition that much?  Time to lower their price to somthing mere mortals can afford!!!!!


To be fair some other CAD software out there has totally sucked and AutoCad's software should warn users of problems when opening these files, but come on guys: Warnings even after resaving with so-called-trusted-autodesk-dwg-format-capable-software? REALLY GUYS?


Creating a totally new empty ACAD DWG formated document then inserting the so-called untrusted ine into it and resaving the newly created drawing in DWG format does so far eliminate the warning problem once and for all future access to it (unless it gets reopened and resaved by non-autodesk CAD software).
