New User Question

Vicky
This post was updated on .
Hi Everyone,

I did a once over of the manual but I didn't find what I was looking for. I typically use DeedPlotter to plot legal descriptions in order to get a visual for what a property tract looks like. I was wondering if I can plot these calls in LibreCAD? Or can I download these plots from DeedPlotter directly into LibreCAD?

I'd really love if I could plot these and have them be on the same scale as a county tax map.

Thank you all in advance!

For reference - an example of calls formatted as they'd be entered into DeedPlotter is included below:

n0e 10
n90e 10
s0w 10
s90w 10

Or a more complex description:

n4.03w 1755
n89.32w 1532
s38.22w 384.8
s57.52w 321.7
s15.08e 181.5
s15.52w 258.8
s28.07w 214.5
s10.52w 236.3
s17.24e 330
s34.49e 138
n89.52e 2165

LibreCAD can't read geographical coordinates. At Plugins there is ESRI Shapefile, which seems to be a GIS thing. Maybe you can use this.
If DeedPlotter exports to dxf, you can open that in LibreCAD.
