Tech Support-Quickcad splines and .dwg problems

Hi all,

I'm using Quickcad 6.0 and I've noticed that it doesn't import bezier curves
contained in .dwg files. The curve entities just aren't there at all when I
import a file into Quickcad but they are there when I load the same file
into Turbocad 5.0 or Autocad. When I export a drawing with spline curves to
a .dwg file from Quickcad and re-import that same file the splines have been
converted to polylines. This is a problem for me. I need the curves to
retain their properties as curves when I import/export to .dwg files.

Does Quickcad 7.0 properly handle the importing and exporting of
splines/beziers in .dwg?

Thanks.

I can't speak for beziers but splines in AutoCAD R14/2000 .dwg files remain
splines and the curves can be edited using Edit Vertices.
