Summary0001042: Feature Request:: DXF Export in XY plane
DescriptionIf a surface which is being exported does not lay in the XY plane, then the resulting DXF file is basically useless by third-party 2D applications. Can such exports be automatically rotated into the XY plane?

Yes, that is possible to implement, a routine should be implemented before exporting that reorient all points on a certain workplane...
I cannot promise you when I can do it, though.

Done with 6dbf66b

There is now an option in Draft preferences to project exported objects along the current view direction.
