Hi. I saw many questions related to the same problem (e.g. "How to convert CAD file xdata into geodatabase?"), but could not really find a solution to this, so I am posting this as a new question. I have a DWG created in AutoCAD. It has some "solid" entities. I am facing some problems integrating my CAD data with ArcGIS. Here they are: Although… (Show more)

Does anyone have any experience with Autocad 2018? The latest release doesn't seem to be compatible with ArcMap Desktop 10.5. I've tried running the CAD to GDB tool and adding the files in the table contents - both are coming up blank, when they would work fine with the previous Autocad 2017.   I'm not very familiar with Autocad, but the drawing… (Show more)

Annotation cells scale themselves based on the drawing scale. The organization uses annotation cells for about 80% of all the cells. I could… (Show more)

Hello.   We are trying to read a DWG file containing multiple layers with attributes. ArcGIS (starting with version 10.3) is supposed to "break down" the DWG into multiple "feature classes", each one having its own subset of attributes (according to the original DWG object data).   The problem is, that, although we can see those separate… (Show more)

I've been using the Pro traverse tool to digitise some survey plans from the 1960s. The plans state they were recorded in British Feet. Using the traverse tool there are two options for feet. Knowing that many options for feet exist (Olympic foot, US survey foot, British foot etc) I'd like to know which options are presented here. Both are… (Show more)
