    Default Mac DXF to Dos DXF conversion?

    Folks, I am looking for some conversion software for converting Mac generated DXF files to PC usable DXF files. Any help appreciated.
    Thanks, Tom

    They're just text files, so they should be the same.

    This would happen in a "perfect world"
    Actually there is a difference between Mac, Dos/Windows and Unix/Linux text files: the newline character.
    It is everything explained on Wikipedia:

    along with workarounds.

    I found a work-around. I open the Mac.dxf file into "WordPad" on my PC, save it as a text file, and now the PC based programs can open it.

    Wordpad adds line feed and carriage return.
