    I am trying out version 8 and for the most part it works well.

    One problem I am having is with DWG files. Multiline text comes through
    exploded to single line text (AS6 left it as mutiline). That is ok.
    The problem is that it does not line it up properly. Left justified
    text is fine. Center and right justified is off. Is there something I
    missing or is this a new "feature"?

    Well I found the place to do a search of the newsgroup and discovered
    this was a problem with version 7 but only if you had metric units

    It appears that in version 8, they extended this "feature" to those of
    us in the english units world too (I use inches). It appears to be only
    specific fonts. RomanS worked OK but arial and several others were
    messed up.

    Anybody know of a good looking font that works? Or another workaround?

    Yes Len....another bug. All multiline text that is justified from whatever
    is defaulted within the software explodes into single lines, the first line
    of text stays where it should be and all lines below the first line shoots
    all over the place.

    As you can see, it is a complete pain in the <EDITED> you can
    probably understand why I say AS/QC is <EDITED>

    I don't know whether you have come across another pain in the
    <EDITED>.....when you open a .DWG file in QuickCAD, only 127 copies of a
    symbol can be pulled; any duplicate symbols past the first 127 are discarded
    when the file is reopened in QuickCAD. Don't know if this an AS problem as
    well. A complete <EDITED> in my opinion.

    Give me LT (at least) anytime.

    To my knowledge, there are no work arounds for your font problem apart from
    finding a more stable program.
