Yes it is in dxf format. also noticed that in draft mode the commands work but you cannot see your image.
When you turn off draft mode the image appeaars but most commands don't work.
Now that I reopened the file the image is gone. If I put it in draft mode, the image outline appears but no image.
I imported and image such as jpeg. I could see the image with draft mode turned off and not with it on.
I did work and saved the file several times. when I reopen the file the image is gone. In draft mode the image outline is visable but not the image. with draft mode off the whole image is gone.
Is the image in the drawing file or is it like autocad where the image is x-ref into the drawing file from another location.
the work I did was over the image. Both image and work is gone. Is that a clue.
