    Importing DXF loses layers

    PeterFacey Community Member

      Despite the option to "merge layers" in the AI DXF import dialog, I find that in fact when I import a DXF it all ends up in a single layer (whether that option is ticked or not).


      The DXF comes from the British government "Ordnance Survey" mapping agency. It has several dozen layers in it.


      Each layer has its own Autocad color number (dxf group code 62) and AI correctly notices this and assigns the right colour to each object. But it always merges the layers.


      Any fix for this?
