If in my AS (v9), Save-As options include: (Quote)

AutoCAD 2000 DXF (.*DXF)
AutoCAD 2000 Drawing (.*DWG)
AutoCAD 2004 DXF (.*DXF)
AutoCAD 2004 Drawing (.*DWG)
AutoCAD R12/LT2 DXF (.*DXF)
AutoSketch (*.SKF)
AutoSketch v7/v8 (*.SKF)

Bitmap (*.BMP;DIB)
GIF (*.GIF)
JPEG (*.JPG;*.JPEG)
PNG (*.PNG)
QuickCAD (*.CAD)
TIFF (*.TIF;*.TIFF)
Windows Metafile (*.WMF)

V10 must ‘at least’ have the above, .. I would have thought. (?).

I don't have 10 handy at the moment, but from memory it does the same as the above formats (might also have AutoCAD 07 but I'm not certain).

 

However I find DWG unreliable (some things don't save, some programs complain about opening them) and use DXF.

Yes and even 2007.dwg. The problem is that if i have made my drawing i skf-format and then try to save it in any dwg-format i get a errormessage "can not save file". I belive it is a 64-bit problem. I have tested the program in a 32-bit win 7computer and it seems to work fine. I belive the program is not redy jet. / salren

I've installed Sketch 10 onto this newly formatted W7 64bit machine and it saves to DWG (2007) fine.

Hi ! Yes, but try to save in skf-format at first (from start drawing) and then save in dwg.format. Thats my problem. I have lots of drawings that i created and saved in skf-format (earlier and new ones. Know when i need to save them in dwg to share them with other colleges it dosent work. So i had to copy the files to an older computer (xp 32-bit) and open them in Autosketsch V07. There i can save them in dwg-2000 and then copying back to the new computer and open them in R10-version and there save them in dwg-2007. /HE -- *Saltsj?
