Hi :)
Hmm, i hadn't thought about that.  I guess Draw is probably treated differently from 

Typically office workers will open some old document and then just delete everything visible and 
then start writing a new document in there.  I have found documents with non-printing characters 
and even empty tables and stuff.  One had been created on a Mac using something other than MS 
Office.  Most have a lot of 'personal' info such as name and company address that are clearly 
nothing to do with my workplace.  It wouldn't surprise me to find 'new' documents that could be 
traced back to the documents origins in Win95.  

I kinda imagined people would similarly open an old word-processed document and then "Save As.." to 
get it as a odg and then delete a few things and add drawings.  I guess that with Draw people might 
do the hugely complicated 
File - New

Regards from
Tom :)

Re-creating a fresh new image using the newer branch was brilliant.  Sometimes older documents 
that have "been around the block a few times" get a lot of inexplicable weirdnesses.

I have only made a few drawings, and fairly simple ones at that. So starting over is not hard. 
However, it was a jolt to receive a batch of printed potting shells with the image scaled 
incorrectly. Fortunately, not enough to be unusable. I hope there aren't other users out there that 
have many drawings that will need to be done over.

OpenOffice had a problem (bug #114901) a couple of years ago where it started mishandling Adobe 
Type 1 fonts. The simpler solution was to convert them to TrueType fonts. I can't even find that 
bug now. And so it goes.

Even though Draw is a fairly simple program, it has the ability to expand or condense the spacing 
between characters, and pair kerning. I condensed the spacing with the "990" part of the drawing 
for a tighter look. DesignCAD 3D Max V21 cannot do that.

I will verify future drawings before submitting them for production.
