You're in good company: Zamzar has converted over million files since File extension. This was particularly important for early versions of CAD as reverse engineering of the closely guarded DWG format was limited.
Use OCR. See more by engineers, architects and other professionals in the field of building design and construction. The latest versions of the BMP has the ability to control color. Bitmap images can use a compression method called run-length encoding RLE , however this is rarely used.
As BMP files faithfully display raster images with no loss of quality, they are a good choice to use when converting your image to vector. Any image that uses pixels on a fixed grid to define an image can be called a bitmap. It was created by Autodesk to serve as an exchange medium between different CAD programs.
Quote from: Dan on May 10, , PM. Don't know, Kirk. I've got the latest version of Inkscape 0. Arcs consist of very rough line segments.
Regarding the Inkscape documenta tion, it could be outdated, but could also be that I was wrong. There is not one now.
