So do we, but there's nothing stating that specifying files
in "AutoCAD 2000+ DWG format" means they were actually MADE
in AutoCAD.

Specifying file formats for data communication is one thing.
Telling someone what software they _must_ use to create the
file is something completely different,

For some of our vendors/suppliers we now specify a full RECOVER log screen capture accompany the files. Sure that can be manipulated, but it's usually easier to just do the job right. We contract full compliance with our standards as well (no layers 1, 2, 3, etc., no bogus scaled elements, no over-ridden dimensions, no dimassoc=0, no self xref's, and on and on). And we provide all the tools necessary to comply with our standards using AutoCAD.

I'm no longer in the business of fixing MSTA translated files.

Jack,

The warning for drawings with the "PRODUCED BY AN AUTODESK EDUCATIONAL
PRODUCT" educational plot stamp is in AutoCAD 2004 and up.

I think you get an education stamp warning if you open an education created
dwg when using commercial versions of AutoCAD 2006, and probably the same in
2007.

Not having done so myself, I am can't swear to it, but I remember reading
that it is so, about a year ago or when 2006 came out.

As for the warning messages about a non AutoCAD created DWG file, it is
better than no warning. It gives a possible place to look when corruption
screws up a dwg file.

Thanks. I will take being 1/3 right as opposed to never right.

>>Then, if all those versions are not separate licenses, your employer is in violation of the EULA. If they'll steal from AutoDESK what makes you sure they won't steal from you?

You are truly ridiculous!

My employer is the State I live in.

Wanna take another guess?

Just cuz' it's a state government does not mean they are above shady dealings. Some state agencies would be the poster children for shady.

Notice I said IF, not are. IF they are all above board, and every installation is in accordance with the EULA, then cool. IF NOT they are thieves, and as such will steal from you just as quick as they will from AutoDESK.

Must be nice to live on Planet Randy.

Here on Earth, reality is somewhat different in how much we can hold our
consultants' collective feet to the fire.

Depends on the contract. And where you are on the pecking order. I would suspect, you'd be on the other end of our contracts.
