Import Layer Selection and Mapping

After you've hit Save from the Select Input File dialog you'll have a chance to review and change the layer selections and mappings. A large dialog box opens up showing you the current settings as derived from the L-Edit database. If the selected layers and names are to your satisfaction you need only press OK.

DXF Layer Name
This column shows the name of the layer as defined in the DXF file. If a check appears in the box at left the layer will be translated. The All On button turns on all layers for translation and the All Off button turns off all layers for translation.

Layer 0
AutoCAD DXF files always have a layer 0 - there may or may not be anything drawn on layer 0. You should translate this layer because you will have no way to know what is on layer zero until after the translation.

LEDIT Layer Name
In this column you can type the L-Edit layer name. You can also click on the browse button (...) to open a scrolling window labeled LEDIT Layer Listing that lets you pick from all available L-Edit layers.

Ignore this column. The color is derived from the current L-Edit layer settings....
