Export to DXF not showing up in export menu

Recommended Posts

Exporting DXF is not a supported function. So, not a bug, but would be a reasonable Feature Request.

Super excited to bring in DXF!... but how to get them back out?  Seems like a pointless new feature if you can not export it back out

If I remember correctly, TGA support arrived in phases:

  • Import first
  • Export then
  • Alpha channel support last

I wouldn't be surprise if Export arrived at a later time.

Best regards!

What a strange false advertisement... triggered me to buy the upgrade... only to realize I fell for the classic name drop trick. Why not put a feature like ... supports 3d (rendered images only)

From the Tech Specs page:

AutoCAD DWG/DXF import, place and edit (maintaining layer structure and scaling)

I'm sorry for the experience you had, but it has happened to me: my brain tricks me with it shortcuts and I act hastly.

Best regards!
