I am seeing unusual DXF import behavior with the Pattern Editor in DipTrace (v2.4.0.2, Win7-64). Using Geomagic Design, I created a simple line drawing (units in millimeters) for a D-shaped pad and exported it as an AutoCAD 2007 DXF file named pad.dxf. Shown below are four examples of various settings with before and after images.

The image on the left side is the drawing that DipTrace recognizes and displays, which always looks good. The image in the center shows the DipTrace import settings that were used. The image on the right side is the pattern that DipTrace created. As you can see, only one has the desired result. I was unable to figure out a way to add the imported pattern to a pre-existing pattern file without things going awry. Notice how the pin numbers in the pre-existing pattern have inexplicably rotated 180 degrees in the first example...

Am I doing this correctly?
