Q - question

Automatic selection of the original format version on saving DWGs.

A - answer With the free utility CADstudio SaveOrig you can save a DWG drawing automatically in that format, in which it was loaded into AutoCAD. So if you e.g. open a 2007-version DWG drawing in AutoCAD 2014, edit it and then save it with the SAVEORIG command, the resulting file will be again in the DWG2007 format - automatically, without manual selection of the proper setting in SaveAs.

The application checks non-saveable versions (e.g. R12), or still unnamed new drawings. You can map this command to the keybord shortcut Ctrl+S.

Load the Saveorig.vlx file downloaded from www.cadstudio.cz/download using APPLOAD (or drag it to the "briefcase" to load it in any drawing) and run it by entering "SAVEORIG".
