Just moved from Draftsight to NanoCad and am absolute beginner with NanoCad.
How can I open .dwg files created in Draftsight?

Hello John,

check the version of .dwg file, because nanoCAD 5 cannot work with dwg2018 format.
How to check dwg version: open the drawing file with any text editor (notepad, for example). At the beginning of text you will see the following code: AC10XX, where XX can be: 32, 27, 24, 21,...
AC1032 code means that the file has dwg2018 format. You can use nanoCAD Plus/Pro 10 to work with these files.

If you cannot open the drawing in Plus/Pro - please, send it us.
New nanoCAD Plus 11 is released!
We added dozens of new commands and features and made the user interface even more clear and consistent.
Free trial license is available here: https://nanocad.com/.../plus/download/

It is 2020 now and nanoCAD still can't load a single 2018 format.
When is a fix coming?

Hello,
many users of dwg files work with 2004 or 2010 format... me too !
Download a Draftsight trial, convert your files and work fine with NanoCad
Cordially
