What is qcadshp.shx?

Post by slyde » Mon Dec 18, 2017 8:20 pm

Hi Forum:

I opened a file in QCAD without making any modifications to it. I added no lines, text, nothing. I can't say that I never saved it at some point. But if a save was made, it contained nothing intentionally new by me. Now when I open it in two other CAD programs, I get the following warning box. It seems QCAD has added a font file to the drawing, and it gives other CAD programs fits. Can someone please explain this to me?

I wish I cld, Andrew, but it's a 1.5M DWG file. However, if you have FileZilla (or an equivalent), I'll upload it to one of my servers and provide you the necessary credentials to download it.

Please advise.
