I notice that Drawfiles exported from NS need to be loaded into Draw
and re-saved before they will load into Easi/Tech/Writer.
Trying here with the 'Builds page', I get "Could not complete your
request, because: 'Empty' Draw file."
NetSurf itself fails to load the 'empty' Draw file, displaying a
yellow/red hourglass then returning to a pointer but seemingly
freezing the machine. The 'cleaned' (via Draw) version displays in
both TechWriter and NetSurf.
According to the Drawfile header block section of the Filetypes
StrongHelp manual, the successful version (in this case at least) has
gained a y low (offset 28) Bounding box and an x high (offset 32).
Copying just those 8 bytes over the blank section of the original
allows NetSurf and TechWriter to display it again. I guess they both
rely on a sensible bounding box to know what to display.
