Smart Merge Options

To access this dialog box, use File > Interoperability > DXF-DWG > Smart Merge Options.
If none of these exist or if you want to select another .mcf file, you can always do so in the File > Interoperability > DXF-DWG > Smart Merge Options dialog box.
You can study or edit the details of the configuration set, by clicking the small arrow next to Edit rules for current configuration text. The rules in the list are editable; the maximum number of rules is 16. A rule is made of a condition part and one or more actions. If an element coming from the DXF/DWG drawing meets a condition of a rule, the actions of that rule will be executed on it.
The New Rule button adds a new but empty rule to the end of the list. The condition and the actions for this rule will be undefined. A rule becomes valid if the condition is fully defined and at least one action is set.
You can remove a rule entirely by selecting its line and clicking the Delete Rule button. (Separator lines are not selectable.)
If you want to edit a condition, you have to click that line in the list, then choose another type of condition in the displayed pop-up window. To edit an action, click the row with the action you want to change, and select another enabled action from the pop-up. If you want to delete an action from a rule, select it and click the Delete Action button. A rule must have at least one action, thus you cannot delete the last one. The Add Action button inserts an action after the selected one. At first it will not be defined, so you must set a valid value for it.
Note: If an element was scaled in AutoCAD, the Merge Add-On will outline the drawing, and scaled elements will appear in ARCHICAD as single lines, arcs and fills.
