Drawings in FG

Postby lk2064 » Fri Sep 23, 2005 1:44 pm

How do i go about printing my fieldnote drawings in FG, do i have to use CAD
or can i view and print them in say, microsoft picture viewer or something like that, i just want to print my drawing and point numbers, so i can draw real fieldnotes without having to keep zooming in and in FG to try and draw them, if i can print it out it will make it easier to draw.

DXF

There is no direct drawing print feature in FG. You would have to export the drawing to a DXF file at the very least, then use a program that can open a DXF file (such as a CAD program) to get a simple print of the drawing. There may be other programs that can read in a DXF file, other than a CAD program, and allow you to print them - but I do not have a list of any such programs.

DXF

In FG, in the menus pick on Export -> then pick on DXF. This will create the DXF file on the collector. Then you can copy the DXF file to the computer and see if it will display in a program that may help you.
