I am having problems opening a .dwg file. When I choose open and change the 'Files of type' to .dwg I find it in the 'Name" window and click on it (I do see a preview in the window). I then click open and another window opens up which is 'Open Shape File" and asks me to look in the properties folder for a shape file. I don't know what to do at this point. HELP.
So I have to do this each time?
Are you very familar with the program? I have a lot of questions and I was hoping there was more video tutorials on-line. What would be the best way to get all of these questions answered?
Thanks for your reply,
I'm not sure why in AutoSketch when I go to click to open a .dwg file it then opens another window which is 'Properties' and the file type it is looking for is .SHX. If I was to open the file in TrueView by AutoDesk it opens right up. The funny thing is that when I'm trying to open it in AutoSketch I see the drawing in the preview pane.
Preview is nothing but a static BMP raster file embedded into the drawing file: you are in no way looking at the content of the actual file just the last save state.
AS is not AutoCAD (Trueview is AuitCAD).
