FS#1008 - DXF (dxflib) compat issues
Git head as well as 3.4.5 (trial), both with dxflib 126.96.36.199.
Start up QCAD, (with existing or new configuration, doesn’t seem to matter), “Save as” the completely empty drawing, choose “R15 (dxflib)” on Pro (only this one is available on community), save drawing.
Fire up AutoCAD 2000, try to load the empty drawing just saved.
DXF read error Error in APPID Table DXF read error on line 941. Invalid or incomplete DXF input -- drawing discarded.
Problem not present when a completely empty drawing saved using Teigha in R15 format is opened (ie. it just results in an empty drawing in AutoCAD 2000). Problem is also not present when saving an existing drawing with Pro (trial) with Teigha and opening it in AutoCAD 2000. Problem does present when trying to open a dxflib-saved drawing in AutoCAD 2000.
Empty drawings created with both dxflib 188.8.131.52 in QCAD Pro 3.4.5 trial and Teigha whatever in QCAD Pro trial 3.4.5 are attached. (Community Git 135fd0 is identical to Pro - same dxflib version.)
