SAVEAS creates script files for use with AutoCAD Release 14 for converting DWG files to Release 12 and Release 13 DWG file
format. It provides long filename support and is designed for use with Win95 and NT. An explorer- type common dialog is provided
to locate your file folders. The paths to selected folders are pasted into the appropriate fields of a dialog box for use by the
program. There are nine different purge command sequences available, one manual and eight 'Automatic Purge'. Choose manual
and AutoCAD will stop for you to manually purge the drawing. After you have completed the manual purge you must type resume
to continue. The automatic purge scripts include: 1. All 2. Blocks 3. Dimstyles 4. Layers 5. ltypes 6. Shapes 7. Styles 8. Mlinestyles.
The latest version of the program provides a means of purging a named entity from your DWG files. Enter the name in the field
provided and this name will be included in the script file to direct AutoCAD to restrict the purge to this entity only. The program
provides a means of viewing the contents of the script files before you invoke them. The view includes a feature for removing files
that may already have been converted. This saves the time required to create a new script file leaving out these files. If you have
a large number of drawing (.DWG) files to convert to Release 12 or Release 13, this program will save considerable time and effort.
The Purge function allows you to remove all or selected entities to reduce the size of your DWG files before archiving them or
converting them to Rel12 or Rel13 format. This is especially important if the reference items are not included on the system the
files are being exported to. If this does happen the conversion script will stop. purging these entities from your drawings will
prevent this from happening.
