DraftSight V1R3.1 is now available !

Dassault released today an updated version for DraftSight. This new V1R3.1 version fixes 2 bugs in fonts:

- The display of .ttf fonts in model and paper space.
- The PDF export of .shx fonts (Capital E letter problem)

As usual 32bit only .deb and .rpm files are available.

If you experience any problems with the download page try the direct links provided in this post.


  1. I installed this on debian weezy amd64. It took some time for me to find the right dependencies so here is what worked for me:

    1. It's a known problem. See this post for a workaround.

  3. Have you applied multiarch?
