    A common question I have heard recently is how do I convert DWG files to earlier versions?

    This is easily done by using a function called DWG convert which is a feature in the free application Trueview. The latest version, 2021, has the new quick measurement enhancements making it useful to anyone who needs to be able to view and print drawings. It also has the DWG convert function.

    A few years ago, I wrote a post detailing the process and the relevant options to consider. The document can be located here:

    Despite a few variations in icon appearance the functionality remains the same.
