AutoCAD 2007 has a new DWF Attach command where a DWF can be inserted as an underlay. This command has been positively received by the AutoCAD community. There have even been suggestions to evolve the command further.
Autodesk discussion group member, Chuck Han, noted that AutoCAD 2007 will crash if a DWF file is specified on the command line using quotation marks. If you use:
and specify the path and file name as:
you get an AutoCAD 2007 exception. If you specify the path and file name WITHOUT the quotation marks:
then there is no problem. This exception is inconsistent with other AutoCAD commands such as:
which does allow quotation marks around the path and file name. While this problem might seem trivial, it is an issue for some programmatic (specifically, ObjectARX) situations.
Thanks for the tip Chuck! I will pass your issue on to the AutoCAD team.
