When we create a draft in version 2.2.2 we put dashed lines and the length is 0. We see a dash lines. (see attach file).

When we open the same draft in the version 3.3.2 we don’t see the dashed lines we see a continous lines.

If I changed in the dxf this lines DASHED 370 0 per DASHED 370 5 and changes the preference of the drawing it’s work.

But we don’t want to open all of 180000 drawings to change the length of the dashed lines from 0 to 5. We want that the version 3 print the dashed lines as the version 2.

Thanks for your report.
I'm working on an application preference to adjust these behaviors.
