Good News, Bad News

Good News: Autodesk has informed me that my request to remove the polyface mesh limitation has been entered into the AutoCAD wish list.

Bad News: Since this would mean changing the DWG file format, I suspect that this change may come about only in AutoCAD 2010, assuming that Autodesk will continue with its three-year DWG compatibility cycle.

    I would assume that this would NOT produce a change in the DWG format but in the defining of a system variable within the programming confines of AutoCAD itself.

    The change from a short to long int variable would not necessitate any file format change but a hard-coded change in AutoCAD itself (oh joy, oh bliss).
