DXF Import Settings (Multi-Board Schematic)

Created: September 18, 2017 | Updated: June 29, 2018


The DXF Import Settings dialog allows you to configure import options for standard DXF files and then load them into a multi-board schematic document.

Note that the DXF source graphic is interpreted using standard graphical shape objects – lines, circles, rectangles, text – and each individual object is therefore editable in the Properties panel.


From the main menu, select File » Import from DXF then use the file browser to select a *.DXF or *.DWG file.


  • Units – Select metric or imperial units to best match the source file.
  • Default Line Width – Select a default line weight for all objects within the imported graphic file.
  • Default Font Family – Select a default font to be used to represent any text in the source file.
