FAQ: How do I maintain the appearance of annotative objects when opened in an earlier release?


AutoCAD 2007 and earlier releases did not support annotative objects. If you need to share drawing files created in AutoCAD 2007 or later with others, you will need to save the drawing to the AutoCAD 2007/LT2007 file format and set SAVEFIDELITY to 1. This preserves the visual fidelity by saving individual representations of each scale of each annotative object. The individual objects are saved to layers that are used to organize objects of the same scale.
