    Default How to convert a DWF to DWG

    Open DWF Viewer
    Go to Menu Edit> Copy

    Open up AutoCAD
    Go to Menu Edit> Paste Special
    Select AutoCAD Entities.


    You will need to adjust the scale and that's it!

    PS: Note that not everything gets converted properly.
    Text and dimensions are exploded; but everything else comes out pretty good.

    I've tried this and the arcs turn into poly lines. They are really messed up. Am I doing something wrong or does any one else have the same problem.

    The same thing happens to me. Nothing you can do about it; but recreate them.

    The DWF Viewer copy doesn't appear to copy objects printed from model space. I'm only captureing the paperspace objects. I'm using DWF version 6. Perhaps the older versions capture more?

    I'm using Version 7 and there doesn't appear to be any vector geometry, it will allow me to copy the image, but that has little use for me.

    great tip! it lessens the burden of drawing the whole thing again.
