Hi, I use Autosketch (from Autodesk) to design DXF-files.
When I import those dxf-files in my SCAL4-pro, then SCAL do not reconize the dashed lines from the dxf-files. He change the dashed lines in solid lines. Who can help me? Thanks in advance.

Try this... select the layer that has the lines that should be dashed and click on the palette icon on the right to open the Fill & Stroke Panel. Open the Line Style menu and select one of the dashes options. Test it out to see if it works. DXF formats are so unpredictable when imported into other programs that there's like a 50/50 chance it will work. If it doesn't, see if you have other vector format export options from your Autosketch program. If there are no other options but DXF then sometimes using a Print to PDF option will work. Post back! Will do my best to help you get this working.
