Import Settings are used when uploading a design file via the Import Design feature.
For each compatible Impact file format, it's possible to specify the default Import / Export Master Tool Setting (MTS), that will be used when that file type is encountered.
Only one setting can be specified per file format / extension, and so no choice will be given to the user during Design Import.
The Import Settings dialog lists any existing combinations of file formats and Import / Export settings that have been configured in the site, and allows those settings to be edited, deleted, or further ones added.
When choosing to "Add" a new import setting, first you select one of the following file formats. This list will only show formats not already associated with setting:
- Adobe Document (.pdf)
- Adobe Illustrator (.ai)
- Adobe Postscript (.ps)
- AutoCAD Drawing (.dwg)
- AutoCAD Exchange (.dxf)
- Cadimac (.ima)
- Common File Format (.cf2)
- DDES2 (.dde)
- DDES3 (.dd3)
- ELCEDE Diecard (.N)
- HPGL (.hpg)
- Impact (.ipd)
Next, select from any of the compatible Import / Export MTS.
