I am currently using AutoCAD LT 2009 on my home computer. My client also has the same AutoCAD at a different geographic location. When I generate a drawing file at home and send it to my client’s computer via email the drawing appearance changes. It appears as though the .dwg file is corrupt in some manner. My dimensions are not in order the font has changed in scale and in type. Most of the text is just inadvertently scattered about. What concerns me is I’ve send drawings to my client on several occasion over the years and this is the first time this has occurred. Anybody have any options or idea why this is happening?
Are you using ETRANSMIT command and allowing it to capture all the content your file requires (fonts, plot style tables, etc.) so that your client gets the full package and sees your file the exact same way do? And if yes, are they installing these extras?
Or are you just grabbing the DWG file, sending it along? This is the worst way to send a DWG file, prone to many of the problems you describe.
Yes I suspect etransmit would be the appropriate method of sending .dwg files. I’ve never used that command before but it appears I need to research on how it works. I guess what is puzzling regarding my issue is that I’ve been doing it by copying and pasting for years without a problem. Thanks for your input.
If you only ever want to do what you have "always done", you must ensure your recipient is set up exactly as you are with your fonts, your plot style tables and so much more ahead of time.
AutoCAD never has and still does not include "everything" in a DWG file, so no two recipients will ever see the file the way you do on your PC. A reality you must learn to work with and around.
