    Default Unable to select or manipulate Objects from a .DXF file

    Hi, this is probably a super beginer question but....

    I have a .dxf file that I want to work with. Except that I find that I cannot manipulate it in any way. There's two tabs at the bottom of the page, one labeled model amd one labeled layout. I see nothing in the model tab, but the layout tab I can see the drawing but not select or manipulate it at all.

    There could be 101 things going on here, could you post the drawing and I will take a look?

    Hi "snorcisa"

    Please note I have *moved* this thread from the AutoCAD Tips & Tricks forum to this one, as I feel this particular forum is a more appropriate place for such a topic.

    Thanks, Mike
