Mike,

I have a .dxf which Global Mapper cannot read. I get an error: "Unknown error reading <....*.dxf> I am reading hundreds of other .dxf's from the same source but I have a problem with this one. It opens fine in AutoCAD. Could you take a look, please? I'll send it to the support e-mail.

Thanks,
David

    David,

    What version of Global Mapper are you using? I just tried your file and it loaded perfectly for me in v11.02. If you already have v11.02 and it still doesn't work, you might need to get the latest build as there were some recent fixes for errors loading some DXF files. I have placed a new build at http://www.globalmapper.com/global_mapper11.zip with the change for you to try. Simply download that file and extract the contents into your existing v11.xx installation folder to give it a try. If you are using the 64-bit version, there is a new build available at http://www.globalmapper.com/global_mapper11_64bit.zip .

    Let me know if I can be of further assistance.

    Thanks,

    Mike

    Mike,

    Thanks Mike. It reads just fine with the new build. I had a Mar 2nd build of 11.02 so your recent changes made the difference. I should have thought to try the newest build. Thanks for your great support -- I leave a comment at midnight, go to bed, and have an answer in the morning -- you don't get that many (any?) places.
