    Batch Import DXF/DWG Files

    PVA - Jim

    The Batch DXF/DWG Import feature allows you to import and convert multiple files from multiple folders in one, easy step. To use the batch import feature, select File > Import > Import DXF/DWG. The DXF/DWG Import dialog box opens:



    To select a few files from one folder, select "One or More Files" and click the Select Files button. Holding down the control or command key, you can select multiple files in a specific folder. This is useful if only a few files in a folder of DXF/DWG files need to be converted. To select all files in a folder and subfolder(s), select "All," and then click on the Select Folder button.


    Once the folder is selected, you can also import all subfolders by selecting the "Include Subfolders" check box. Next, specify the destination for the files—imported into the current file as individual layers or symbols, or imported as individual Vectorworks files.


    Finally, specify the Import Options. The "Use Default," option uses the default import options to import all of the files. The "Use Custom," option allows you to specify the various import settings. Please note that the settings will be used on all files. You cannot specify one set of options for one set of files and another set of options for another set of files. Files with different options should be imported as separate steps. Click OK when all settings are specified. When the import process is complete, a dialog box showing the import results opens.
