Point representation

Top  Previous  Next

If you have opened a point Esri shape file then the settings dialog will have a "Point Block Settings..." button in it. Click on that button to change how points will be represented in the DXF file you create. You'll get the following dialog:

 

Point-Block-Settings-In-DXF-ESRI-Shp-Files

 

Here you can set whether points are represented by AutoCAD points, circles, or blocks.

 

You can also set the size of the point.

 

Obviously, with thousands of points, viewing and DXF creation are faster with simple AuoCAD points, rather than blocks.

 

If you are fine technically with AutoCAD and Windows you can create your own blocks for point representation.
