  • Can AutoCAD edit .cal drawings?

    I need to edit existing drawings that have been already scanned into our drawing vault, and some of them are saved as .cal file format. Can AutoCAD convert these drawings and open them for editing? There are a lot of them that need to be edited, so I am looking for the most expeditious way to do so.

  • ACAD right click copy with base point doesn’t always work

    When copying part of one dwg to another using the right click feature of "copy with basepoint", the copied entities do not paste when the right clicked "paste" is used. Why does this only work sometimes. It is very helpful feature when working.
