QP Update 6.73.60 - Export to DXF

Span Profiles, in all locations can now be exported directly into DXF format for use in AutoCad.

Some users were previously exporting to Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) format and then using another online tool to convert it into DXF format. Now that extra step can be bypassed. Simply right-click you mouse on the profile image and choose Save As... DXF.

Since Span Profiles now support both metric and Standard units, this will be maintained in the DXF file exported. The DXF file will be set to use either meters or feet as the units in the file; so the DXF file will be scaled appropriately when opened in AutoCad. All graphics items are separate entities within AutoCad and are not treated like an image. This allows you to modify any item (line, text, etc.) individually.
