Re: MAC PowerCAD > AutoCAD conversions

Conversions from one CAD program to another are often (usually) less than smooth. A program being able to save as a different format doesn't mean much. A lot often gets lost in the translation. There is not much you can do about it other than mess around with different formats. As for printing, you can always print to PDF and plot from that. A two step process but it works.
