Tom,

We can't reproduce the bug when you got only single line from the square ("figure 2" in your last post). Please, record a video file, display step by step what you doing. Show all program window in video. As well create the DipTrace ASCII file with the single line in Pattern Editor and upload it here.

Hi Serg,
I think I have found a way to consistently reproduce the failure...

Experiment 1
1) Create a new pattern library with a pattern that has a completely blank design area and save it. This part is very important: the design area must be completely empty of any and all objects. For your convenience, I have provided such a pattern library file named "blank_pattern.lib" in the folder named "DXF.zip" below.
2) Load the new library and select the pattern named "empty design area" from the pattern list by left-clicking on its name.
3) Import the 33mm square (file named "square_33mm.dxf" provided in the folder named "DXF.zip" below) using the following settings...
DXF Units: Millimeters
Import Mode: Add (This will cause the failure when importing into a completely blank design area.)
Convert to: Top Signal
[X] Fill Closed Areas

Observations
Only one line from the 33mm square is imported.

Experiment 2
1) Click once on Undo to remove the imported line and clear the design area.
2) Import the 34mm square (file named "square_34mm.dxf" provided in the folder named "DXF.zip" below) using the following settings...
DXF Units: Millimeters
Import Mode: Add (This will cause the failure when importing into a completely blank design area.)
Convert to: Top Signal
[X] Fill Closed Areas

Observations
The entire 34mm square appears without being filled.

Additional Observations
After further trials I found that in order to successfully import a filled square of either size into the Top Signal layer of a blank design area, the Import Mode: must be changed to New.

Let me know if you can reproduce this on your system.

Thanks in advance for your help.

That's been my experience as well but it will error even with the 10x10mm square. If you import it using "Add" you will get a single vertical line. If you use "New" you will get a filled square 'shape'.

That helps confirm that the "single-line to empty-square" changeover occurs between 33mm and 34mm (for the Add import mode, of course).
