I have a drawing done in autocad.

When opened with Qcad, all of the text is displayed as xt2;2942 etc etc Where in autocad it is only 2942

Any ideas how I can remove xt2;

First, try to find out what the complete code is. Select a text and check the property editor.
It's probably something starting with a backslash (\).

Then, you can use Edit > Find/Replace to replace the code with nothing.

You might also want to attach the file or post the complete text code here, so the code can be ignored in future versions of QCAD. Thanks.

The property editor shows \xt2;2942

I have other text prefixed with \Pt1.5;

There are hundreds of these on the drawing, and also hundreds with no prefixing.

I thought it is was text formatting, but I am not sure what it is for. Any ideas plz.

Maybe an example drawing could help to encircle the issue ...

Can you delete all but one of these texts and attach the resulting DXF? I have a feeling that there's (literally) more to this than meets the eye...
