Re: HighDesign 2017.1 BETA 4

Thank you, that is very helpful! There is a new beta that (hopefully) addresses the problem with File > Open.

Re: HighDesign 2017.1 BETA 4

Thanks for the replies. HighDesign defines dwg files as "DWG", so the "DWG Document" type is probably defined by another software.

There is a new beta: HighDesign 2017.1b7
Please test both the File > Open and File > Import commands, as they both now allow to open .dwg and .dxf files.

Re: HighDesign 2017.1 BETA 4

Thanks for the feedback! We are still unable to reproduce the problem on our machines, but the added details were helpful to build a new beta. Please download HighDesign 2017.1b6 and test the Import feature.
