Hello,
How do I load a DXF file into Templot?
The DXF file I have was exported from Tempot but I no longer have the original. I want to reload it either as usable templates or as a background so that I can align new templates over it.

Roger

Hi Roger,

A DXF file (any DXF file, not only from Templot) can be imported into the background shapes. If it's from Templot you can let it print as usable templates as it stands, or use it as a guide to align new templates over it.



Note however that Templot is restricted to a maximum of 32,000 background shapes. A large track plan in DXF is likely to exceed this. You may wish to edit the DXF in a CAD program to remove some of the detail, such as say timber centre-lines, etc., before importing it.

Another way of dealing with the maximum import limit is to zoom the trackpad to the area of immediate interest, and then tick the box to import within visible limits only. Clear the background shapes and re-import the DXF file if you move the trackpad to a different area.

cheers,

Martin.

Thank you Martin. 

I'm sure I had looked there already but one gets to the stage that one can't see for looking.

Regards Roger
