Imported points have coordinates 0,0,0

Post by cbunker » Fri Oct 29, 2004 8:02 am

The subject line says it all. For the last day or so, whenever I import a text file of points into a drawing, the coordinates of all of the points end up as 0,0,0.

This happens to both text files that have been created recently, and older ones that I know worked fine. It also happens with new drawings, and existing ones.

I can use the same drawing/coordinate files on another PC running MSCAD and the points will import with no problem.

Any ideas?

I just fixed it myself, two minutes after posting, of course. I realized that the delimiter option was set to "space", and not "comma". I switched it back, and everything is good again.
