I just recently (3 weeks) bought quick cad millennium ver 6, not 7.
trying to load DWG files, review shows them ok, but when actually loaded
i get blank workspace. the fixes shown in the FAQ don't work because I
cannot select the auto scale or auto fit buttons. I would take it back
to Business Depot for the refund, except I can't find my receipt.

Note that the drawings are not big, or complicated, and import ok into
the free version of turbo cad.

Do the objects show if you select View>Extent? Try selecting Expert when
you start QuickCad and see if you are able to select the AutoScale and
AutoFit buttons.

I had this happen to me and it turned out to be a model space / paper space
problem. QC won't handle both model space and paper space at the same time.
Have your sender put all of the entities in one or the other and you'll get
the drawing just fine. See AutoCAD conversions in QC help and it will
explain what's happening.
