I’ve just gotten started today. For your reference, I’m drawing with AutoCAD LT 2019. Your program seems quite powerful, but there are two issues that I need help with:
All help cheerfully accepted. Thanks.
Block attributes: Sounds like the "Floating Zero layer" property that is native to AutoCAD blocks - i.e even though something is drawn in the block on layer 0 - it should appear on the blocks' insert layer. This is the native behavior of ACE. You can try disabling the Respect ByBlock/Bylayer option during DXF/DWG import.
