This report concerns QCAD 3.2.1 when used without the Teigha plugin for DXF / DWG support:
While playing around, I created a simple drawing with QCAD 3.2.0 with just some lines and dimensions.
QCAD 3.2.0 renders it as shown in dim-qcad320.png.
QCAD 220.127.116.11-community renders it as shown in dim-qcad2050free.png.
DraftSight V1R3.2 pops up a window upon loading that says “Drawing file requires recovery. Do you want to proceed?”. If I choose recovery, it renders it as shown in dim-draftsightv1r32.png (if I choose not to recover, it quits). If now I save the recovered drawing in “R2000-2002 ASCII drawing (*.dxf)” format (which looks closest to what QCAD 3.2 offers to save as by default), both QCAD 2 and QCAD 3.2 render this repaired drawing as intended (ie. as in dim-qcad320.png).
