    You might want to try to drag the file right on to the Flexi Drawing Area. Jim:wink:

    HPGL PLT is different from Gerber PLT,

    I've noticed plt files from Corel have excessive nodes, almost like cutting a bitmap...
    I'd convert to AI 88 or 1.1 which Flexi has no issues with at all.

    You're confusing HPGL and Gerber PLT. HPGL is linear data, hence lots of nodes. Gerber PLT is bezier curves and is completely different. Current versions of Flexi do not import Gerber PLT.

    The next version 7.6 does support direct importing of Gerber File formats.

    PLT files are not problem in Flexi 7.6

    We announced Flexi 7.6 yesterday and it will be coming out this week. It includes import filters for Gerber GA and Omega PLT files.

    Thanks for the clarification Matthew.

    So, as a beta tester, I'm not sworn to secrecy anymore?

    Does Flexisign 7.6 support the new Gerber 2.1 plt file format or only versions prior to that (Omega 2.0 and lower; GA 6.2 and lower)?

    OMEGA to FLEXI THIS IS POSSIBLE!!

    I have Flexi and 2 versions of gerber omega. I need nto print and cut back and forth all the time. Flexi wilkl open omega .plts saved as version 1.56 but not the 2.0 versions. Flexi will alow you to open as cuts or print and cuts.,
