    Default Multiple block insert

    Is there a way to select multiple (dxf) files when inserting as blocks? I want to create a backdrop that consists of 100 individual survey files. I can insert into my file one by one, but it is tedious!

    Thanks

    Matt

    Use Design Center ( CRT+2 ) to do that

    I had tried that, but Design Centre doesnt seem to recognise dxf files (unless Ive got something set up wrong)

    Autocad 2004

    Thanks

    Instead of inserting it using the _INSERT command, you can simply drag the dxf file from the explorer window and drop it on the target AutoCAD window to be inserted as a block reference.
