When loading a dxf in QGIS, the line type files load in ok, however all text rotation values are lost when loaded into QGIS.
This is most obvious when you load in OStext.dxf (please see grab_Mar.22.jpg) this shows the same file open in AutoCAD and we can clearly see the selected “RICHMOND ROAD” with a rotation value of 314. When we look at the same record in QGIS (see attached grab2 Mar.22 13.43.jpg) we can see that the rotation value has changed to -0.80. So when I use that value to rotate the text, it doesn’t rotate to the correct place.
Why are the rotation values in the dxf files changing when we load into QGIS?
