Please implement the DXF import or open functionality as new feature in the next version!

Asked by Jenő Berda on 2008-01-10

I want to ask for the functionality to open or import DXF files too not just save. As I know the description of the format is open and it could be very useful for students starting to design small projects in electricity field. Thank you!

A proposal for a dxf input routine has been posted at Bug 293940
