Hi,

XREF in ZWCAD can accept long file names, but i don't know if there is a limit to it. So far i have used filenames about 40 characters long and ZWCAD have no problem accepting that, but you should avoid symbols like , ! ; etc. in your file name, even if windows allow you to use it, somehow ZWCAD refuse to accept them.

Regrads,

mac

A little off-topic here. When using the "drag and drag" method of inserting a block, ZWCAD does not accept long filenames, will rename block name to 8-character long with the first 6 characters consistent with the original dwg and the last 2 character as "~*", I hope the engineers at ZWCAD can fix this in the future.
