Problem: Inserting a georeferenced image using a world positioning file (.tfw, .jgw, etc) will insert the image at the incorrect scale/size.

Workaround: If the pixel size of your image is equal to one drawing unit (ie, if the first and fourth lines in the world file are "1") then you can correct the image size by using the ENTPROP command and changing the "Scale" value to 1, and it will then auto-correct to the appropriate value. This workaround will not work with all images because different scaling may be required.

Solution: This will be fixed in a future service pack.

Status: In Progress (13.0.0), Fixed (14.0.0)


Reported: October 30, 2012

Problem: The _FASTAREA command (Calculate | Fast Area by Selecting Objects) will report incorrect areas if arcs are included in the closed figure.  The geometry uses the arc chord, instead of the arc itself.

Workaround: Use the _AREAS command (Calculate | Calculate Area by Point Numbers) for accurate results.

Solution: This will be fixed in a future service pack.

Status: In Progress (13.0.0), Fixed (14.0.0)
