How to Import Files

To import a file follow these steps:

  • Click on the file icon at the top left of the screen
  • Select the IMPORT button in the file menu
  • Choose DWG or DXF
  • Locate the file required and press OPEN
  • Import visible items only Y\N?

If you select ‘Yes’ then it will import visible layers when drawing was saved

If you select ‘No’ then it will import all layers from original drawing

  • Set Units; Scale; Sheet Size


DWG\DXF files can occasionally be saved in metres.

Loading this into archiTAB could result in the drawing appearing as a “spec”…1000 times too small.

  • Save As to store as a archiTAB file.
