Default UI Menu: Insert/File

Ribbon UI Menu:

Inserts a TurboCAD (or other CAD format) file into the current drawing. img

Note: The contents of the inserted file are embedded, not linked.

Inserting Partial Data from a File

The right side of the Open window contains a box in which you can select what you want to add from the selected file. img

For example, you can insert all objects ("graphics") but omit their properties or line style. Or you could insert a file's layers without the objects that they contain.

You can use File / Extract To to save only selected components in your drawing to a *.tcw file. This is useful for creating file templates.

Override data: If any items with the same name are found in the target file, they will be replaced by the items in the source file.

Convert units: It converts the units of the file according to current units.
