Importing AutoCAD files

Recommended Posts

Does anybody know whether there is a way on import of AutoCAD files to turn off all hatches and fills so that you only get linework without any fills as I have a lot of files that need cleaning up but I have to manually delete all the hatch patterns.


Thank you,

I don't believe so, but are you using Custom Selections and or the Select Similar tool?  Both these things will help speed up your selections of the unwanted hatch objects.  Check them out in the help files.
