dxf export: dimensions lose values

Postby karlp » Wed May 12, 2021 2:07 pm

Hi,

I've got a techdrawing I'm happy enough with, with dimensions. It looks good as a pdf export, but when I export to dxf and open in qcad or librecad, the dimensions have all lost values, and simply show "mm" as in
Image

This looks very similar to what is reported here: https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?f=35&t=55805 and in the original german here: https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic. ... 58#p480058

However, the "solution" there seems to be changing an import setting in the dxf viewer used there. That really doesn't seem like much of a solution, surely this is something that can be done correctly in the dxf export itself? I get the same mangled dimensions in both qcad and librecad as well as in inkscape.
