The DXF Import Settings dialog provides controls to configure import options for standard DXF files and then load them into the Draftsman drawing space.
Note that DWG (*.dwg) files also can be imported. See the Access section for information regarding importing DWG files.
Note that the DXF source graphic is interpreted using Draftsman’s standard graphical shape objects – lines, circles, rectangles, text – and each primitive object is therefore editable graphically and in the Draftsman Properties panel.
In a Draftsman document, click File » Import from DXF from the main menusthen use the file browser to select a *.DXF file in the resulting dialog then click Open.
To import DWG files, in the Open dialog, enter the name of or browse to and select the *.dwg file you want to import then click Open to access the DXF Import Settings dialog.
Units – select Millimeters or Mils units to best match the source file.
Default Line Width – select a default line weight for all objects within the imported graphic file, where 0.2mm corresponds to Draftsman's 'normal' line weight setting.
Default Font Family – select a default font to be used to represent any text in the source file.
