Blocks - Specifies whether an AutoCAD block is imported as an embedded symbol or a group of elements. An embedded symbol document has a .sym extension. When you import an AutoCAD document, a temporary folder is created in the Temp folder on your hard drive. The temporary folder contains the symbols that are embedded in the AutoCAD document. By default, these symbols are deleted after the document is imported into the drawing sheet. You can change a setting in ITACAD.INI and change the following line in the Options section: Delete Symbol Definitions = 0.

Template File - Specifies the path and filename for the template that you want to use to create a document.

Browse - Displays the Browse dialog box.

Fit imported data to active drawing sheet - Places the AutoCAD data on the active drawing sheet. If the checkbox is not selected, the imported data is placed on a new drawing sheet.
