Why does a TurboCAD file increase remarkably in file size when re-saved as a .dxf file? I often produce artwork for etching, which is emailed to my etching company as .dxf files. Since I upgraded my machine to Windows 10 (bad move) I find the file size is increasing alarmingly. Sometimes it is tripling in number of bytes. One file for an etched sheet measuring 200mm by 130mm came out as over 20Mb, which overloads the recipients mailbox.
In fact, I have noticed a tremendous increase in file size even in basic .tcw files since migrating to Win10, but this problem of tripling in .dxf files is causing no end of problems. I would send a sample file, but even a small file is over 2Mb, when the original .tcw file is
I am now using TCW Deluxe 20.2. Previously, I had TurboCAD 15 Pro, with no problems. The latter will not work on Windows 10 unfortunately even with the compatability set for Win7.
