hi,
I'm I've been playing with FZ7 new features for a while, so far so good. Today I imported a dwg drawing and the results are shown on the left, then I opened the same drawing with 6.7.3 and the results where as expected (right)

2d import display error comparison

I've already cycled through all display styles and checked the options with no success, any ideas?

best regards,
Iņigo Solano

This is because the data is so far away from the 0,0,0 position/ co-ordinates in formZ 7

If you selected the imported data and move it closer to the 0,0,0 you will see it as excepted.

Iņigo,

Yes, the extreme distance from the origin is causing the OpenGL display calculations to break down. (If you change the display in formZ 6.7 from Native Graphics to OpenGL, then you would see the same thing.)

If you move your objects closer to the origin, not only will the display be proper, but many other things (such as navigating, etc) will work better too...
